The Makita 18V LXT®
Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Quick-Shift Mode™ 3-Speed Impact Driver
(model XDT14Z, tool only, batteries and charger sold separately) is a
best-in-class fastening solution for users who want more torque, longer
run-time, and precision fastening features. The XDT14Z delivers all of
the above in a compact size with a superior power-to-weight ratio.
XDT14Z combines a full 1,550 in.lbs. of fastening torque with
category-leading precision features. Quick-Shift Mode™ uses the
brushless motor’s electronic controls to find the best balance of speed
and torque for each application for more efficient fastening. Another
precision feature is Tightening Mode (T-mode), which downshifts and
reduces rotation and impact speed prior to driving the screw into place,
and is engineered to minimize screw thread stripping, screw breakage
and damage to work. These precision features, combined with 3-speed
power settings, give users more control for a wide range of fastening
tasks – from cabinet screws and deck screws to lag bolts, and much more.
It is only 4-5/8" long and ideal for work in tight spaces.
