Makita XDT042 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless
  • Absolutely fantastic impact driver. Plenty of power for all sorts of tasks.
  • I needed to get some heavy cabinets out of an office and this did the trick. It has a lot of torque and power.
  • This small thing exceeds expectations, be careful it can bust nuts and bolts very easily if over torqued, so be on the ready and know when to quit driving it, do not get trigger happy.
  • This is my new workhourse. I love this unit. I've built, repaired and restored a ton of things with this unit and just keeps going and going. I only wish there was a "first gear" or slow speed.
  • Use it in a professional auto shop and goes through a regular beating every day, but it holds up well, very comfortable to hold. Great quality.
