24 Mar Makita Brushless Cordless 1/2″ Driver‑Drill Kit
The new XFD14T from Makita® is designed for all-day work and the 1/2″ chuck can handle large tooling. The kit includes the drill-driver tool and two 18V LXT® Lithium‑Ion 5 Amp hour batteries, a charger, and a bag. The Makita built BL™ brushless motor delivers 1,250 inch pounds of maximum torque in a compact and ergonomic design that is only 7″ long (14% shorter than the previous model). The two-speed transmission ranges are 0 to 550 RPM and 0 to 2100 RPM, which covers a wide range of drilling and fastening applications. The all-metal 1/2″ self-ratcheting chuck delivers improved bit grip and the tool weighs just 5.7 lbs. with the battery installed. Makita says its “18V LXT® Lithium-Ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger”. The tool has an LED light, and the motor is electronically controlled to optimize battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per charge. It matches torque and RPM to the changing demands of the application. The tool also features Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™) which is engineered to provide increased dust and water resistance in harsh job site conditions.
