Makita XT288G 18V LXT Brushless Lithium-Ion 1/2 in. Cordless Hammer Driver Drill and 4 Speed Impact Driver with 2 Batteries (6 Ah)


The 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless 2-Piece Combo Kit (XT288G) delivers 2 Premium brushless tools for drilling, driving, and fastening. The Kit includes two fast-charging 18V LXT 6 Ah Batteries, which are compatible with the full range of Makita tools and products. The kit includes an 18V LXT Brushless 4-Speed Impact Driver (XDT16), an impact driver that sets new standards in power and precision. The XDT16 has a full 1600 in/lbs. of Max Torque, with four-speed settings as well as Makita’s exclusive Quick-Shift Mode for increased fastening control. 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 setting 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. The XDT16 delivers industry-leading performance in a compact and ergonomic design. The 18V LXT Brushless Variable 2-Speed Hammer Driver-Drill (XPH14) combines power and run-time for more drilling, driving, and fastening tasks in wood, metal, and masonry. It delivers up to 2100 RPM and a full 1250 in/lbs. of Max Torque, and weighs only 6 lbs. with battery.


  • Variable 2-speed Hammer Driver-Drill with brushless motor delivers (0-550 and 0-2100 RPM) and 1250 in/lbs. of Max Torque; weights only 6.1 lbs. with battery

  • Impact Driver features 4-speed power selection (0-1100 / 0-2100 / 0-3200 / 0-3600 RPM and 0-1100 / 0-2600 / 0-3600 / 0-3800 IPM) provides 1600 in/lbs. of Max Torque; weighs only 3.5 lbs. with battery

  • Efficient Makita-built Brushless Motor is electronically controlled to optimize battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per charge

  • The electronically-controlled brushless motor efficiently uses energy to match torque and RPM to the changing demands of the application

  • Extreme Protection Technology (XPT) is engineered for improved dust and water resistance for operation in harsh conditions

  • Equipped with Star Protection Computer Controls to protect against overloading, over-discharging and over-heating

Warranty Information

Makita Standard Warranty

The Makita Standard Warranty applies to both new and factory-reconditioned Makita tools. Every Makita tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. If you are not satisfied with any Makita tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide a replacement or refund. Each Makita tool is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of ONE YEAR from the date of original purchase. Should any trouble develop during this one-year period, return the COMPLETE tool, freight prepaid, to one of Makita's Factory or Authorized Service Centers.

Each NEW Makita Lithium‐Ion Power Tool, Battery and Charger is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of THREE YEARS from the date of original purchase

If inspection shows the trouble is caused by defective workmanship or material, Makita will repair (or at its option, replace without charge).

This Warranty does not apply where:
  • Repairs have been made or attempted by others
  • Repairs are required because of normal wear and tear
  • The tool has been abused, misused or improperly maintained
  • Alterations have been made to the tool
In no event shall Makita be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages from the sale or use of the product. This disclaimer applies to both during and after the term of this warranty. Makita disclaims liability for any implied warranties, including implied warranties of "merchantability" and "fitness" for a specific purpose, after the one-year term of this warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
