Details

The Makita 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Impact Driver (model XDT042) delivers power and speed in a compact size for a full range of driving and fastening tasks. It's part of Makita's expanding 18V Lithium-Ion series, the world's largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. 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. For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created Star Protection Computer Controls. STAR Protection is communication technology that allows the star Protection-equipped tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita 18V LXT and compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating STAR Protection inside.
The XDT042 features a Makita-built 4-pole motor with variable speed (0-2,300 RPM and 0-3,200 IPM) that delivers 1,420 in-lbs. of max torque. At only 5-7/16 in. long and 3.3 lbs. (with battery), the XDT042 has a compact and ergonomic design with less weight for reduced operator fatigue, and a rubberized soft grip for increased comfort on the job. The built-in LED light illuminates the job area for applications in dark spaces and close quarters. Makita's entire line-up of impact drivers including the XDT042 is engineered with a proprietary hammer and anvil impact mechanism that is manufactured using the best raw materials with the highest quality steel, as well as a unique heat-hardening process for maximum fastening and driving power. The XDT042 is engineered for a wide range of driving and fastening applications. The combination of power and performance in a compact size makes the XDT042 ideal for any pro contractor who requires a best-in-class engineered compact cordless impact driver.

Solid unit
I use it for remodeling, assembly/disassembly of shelving units, and just about anything that needs a number of nuts/bolts secured or removed. It might be my most use tool.

Nimble, Balanced, Capable
Handy for shelving installation and light metal assembly such as metal duct. Works well with automotive applications. Saves time and frustration. The LED lighting is a plus when working in dark areas such as under a car. The tool has limitations; don't expect it to perform like a 3/8" pneumatic impact. It has an amazing amount of power for a 1/4" unit with a quick connect chuck.
This is the first Makita tool I have owned in a long time. Wasn't in the market for the driver but needed a kit to get a battery and charger for my other recent Makita purchases. Very good marketing ploy on the part of Makita. The flip side, you don't have numerous chargers and batteries because it is cheaper to buy a kit. The marketing mentality with other manufacturers.

A great tool, very powerful considering its light weight!
Overall, I can't recommend this product enough. I use one at work and liked it so much that I purchased one for my own home use.

Incredible Tool.
This is my third driver of this type (a progression of specific models). My adult sons talked me out of the first two - one was functionally PERFECT after six or seven years of hard use, and the other was flawless through three years of solid performance. I have never seen one "wear out" or break; they seem bullet-proof. I would not be without one for home repairs, shop assembly, sheet metal fabrication, and anything else that required lots of screws and/or bolts. Saves tons of time.

18V LXT Cordless Impact Driver
This was a replacement for a lost Makita impact driver and battery (My last one was nine years old and running strong). Local stores wanted 4x what CPO was selling it for so I'll be back for other tools. I rebuilt a section of my deck the weekend after it arrived and it performed perfectly.

Great impact driver!
Bought this for a wood working project that involves driving a lot of screws. This impact driver makes the job way easier then using a standard drill. Battery provided all day power without recharging. Nice case for storing the driver and charger.
