Makita LXDT01 impact driver
proud to announce the release of its new 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 3-Speed Brushless
Motor Impact Driver, model LXDT01.
This powerful and versatile impact driver features Makita
brushless motor technology, engineered to run more efficiently for up to 20% longer battery life
per charge. The 3-speed power selection switch provides the user with precise fastening
control for a wide range of applications, from fastening cabinet screws to driving lag bolts.
The new LXDT01, the latest in a long line of innovation from Makita in the impacts category, has
even more fastening power than the previous model, giving contractors unprecedented power,
battery run time, ergonomics and versatility.
3-Speed Power Control and Brushless Motor Technology
The Makita-built brushless motor with 3-speed power selection offers soft, medium and hard
impact power to cover a wide range of fastening tasks:
• Soft impact setting: 0-1,300 RPM, 0-1,300 IPM, and 220 in.lbs. of Max Torque for small
fasteners such as hinge screws for woodworking.
• Medium impact setting: 0-2,000 RPM, 0-2,800 IPM, and 490 in.lbs. of Max Torque for
medium sized fasteners such as drywall screws.
• Hard impact setting: 0-2,600 RPM, 0-3,400 IPM and 1,460 in. lbs. of Max Torque for
large fasteners such as lag bolts.
Consistent with all of Makita’s impact products, the proprietary hammer and anvil impact
mechanism in the LXDT01 is manufactured using the best raw materials with the highest quality
steel and unique heat hardening process for maximum fastening and driving power.
Makita’s Brushless Motor Technology delivers increased motor efficiency to provide up to 20%
longer battery life per charge. With the motor’s more efficient power, the LXDT01 has a more
compact design at just 5-1/2” in length and only 3.3 lbs. with an 18V LXT Lithium-Ion battery.
Ergonomic and Ease-of-Use Features
The LXDT01 is engineered with ergonomic and ease-of-use features. The built-in L.E.D. light
has an independent on/off switch to illuminate the work surface, when needed. In addition, a
battery warning light and the built-in L.E.D. light both flash when it is time to recharge the
battery. The LXDT01 has a “one-touch” 1/4” hex chuck for simple bit insertion and a tool hook for
increased efficiency. The ergonomic shape fits like a glove with even pressure and easy
Makita 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Battery Technology
The new LXDT01 is powered by Makita’s 18V LXT Lithium-Ion battery and the ENERGY STAR
qualified Makita Rapid Optimum Charger. Makita’s 18V Lithium-Ion battery delivers 3X more
cycles, and the Rapid Optimum Charger will charge an 18V LXT Lithium-Ion battery in just 30
minutes for less downtime on the jobsite.
for a Wide Range of Applications
Due to their versatility, impact drivers are gaining broader acceptance for a wide range of
fastening tasks. With its variable 3-speed power selection, brushless motor, and 1,460 in. lbs.
of Max Torque, the LXDT01 is engineered for almost any fastening application, ranging from
small cabinet screws to lag bolts and TEK screws. The LXDT01 is ideal for HVAC, mechanical,
electrical, fencing/decking pro contractors, steel stud framers, woodworkers, finish carpenters,
and general contractors seeking a best-in-class industrial quality 18V Lithium-Ion cordless
Model LXDT01 is a kit that includes two 18V LXT Lithium-Ion batteries, a 30-minute Rapid
Optimum Charger, tool belt clip, and a tool case. The LXDT01Z includes the tool only.
