MAKITA Shakes up 18V Impact Category

Makita® has released three new cordless high-torque fastening solutions that meet and exceed corded demands. The three new 18V LXT® Brushless Cordless Impact Tools include the ¾" Square Drive Impact Wrench (XWT07M/Z), ½" Square Drive Impact Wrench (XWT08M/Z), and 7/16" Hex Chuck Impact Drill (XWT09T/Z).

"With Makita brushless motors and the industry’s leading 18 volt lithium-ion battery technology, Makita cordless tools not only meet corded demands, they can exceed the performance of corded tools," said Adam Livingston, Senior Product Manager, Cordless Products, Makita USA. "With these new high-torque cordless impact wrenches, a contractor can put down their much heavier corded impact wrench and go cordless for the most demanding fastening applications."

The three new 18V LXT® Brushless High Torque Impact Wrenches are part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion series, which will exceed 125 tools in 2016 and is the world’s largest cordless tool line-up powered by 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries. Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.
