Makita adds to Lithium-Ion cordless drill line

Makita has added to its line-up of 18V Lithium-Ion tools with its 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless ½-inch Driver-Drill (model LXFD01).

The drill delivers an optimum power-to-weight ratio for a full range of drilling and driving applications.

The LXFD01 is powered by a Makita-built four-pole motor with bigger front end ball bearings, and delivers 480 in.-lbs. of maximum torque and 290 in.-lbs. of PTI torque. The new planetary gear system and transmission has been redesigned for increased durability in a more compact size, so the LXFD01 is only 7-9/16 inches long and weighs only 3.8 lbs.

The LXFD01 Driver-Drill has 16 clutch settings and a two-speed all-metal transmission (0-400/0-1,500 RPM) to cover a wide range of applications. The improved ergonomic design with a new rubberized soft grip delivers increased comfort on the job, and the built-in L.E.D. light illuminates the drilling surface for applications in dark spaces and close quarters.

The LXFD01 is Makita’s latest release in the 18V LXT Lithium-Ion platform with more solutions on the way. Today there are 40 Makita 18V Lithium-Ion cordless tools powered by one battery. Makita’s 18V LXT Lithium-Ion battery charges on Makita’s ENERGY STAR qualified Rapid Optimum Charger and reaches a full charge in only 30 minutes for more work and less downtime.

The 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 1/2-inch Driver-Drill (model LXFD01) is a kit and includes the driver-drill, two each 18V LXT Lithium-Ion battery, 30 minute Rapid Optimum Charger (ENERGY STAR qualified), tool case, and tool belt clip. Model LXFD01Z includes the tool only (batteries and charger not included).
