MAKITA LAUNCHES TWO 18V LXT BRUSHLESS 4-SPEED MID-TORQUE IMPACT WRENCHES

The XWT17 and XWT18 are the most powerful impact wrenches in their class

Two new 18V LXT Brushless Mid-Torque Impact Wrenches are the most powerful in their class.

October 20, 2020, La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc., manufacturer of high-quality professional tools and accessories, is excited introduce two new mid-torque 18V LXT® Brushless 4-speed ½” Sq. Drive Impact Wrenches. Both impact wrenches provide improved fastening control ideal for automotive and construction trades. With a compact size and less weight, these impact wrenches are the right size to handle most applications, including overhead tasks.
 
The new impact wrenches include the following:
  • XWT17 - 18V LXT® Brushless 4-Speed Mid-Torque 1/2" Sq. Drive Impact Wrench w/ Friction Ring Anvil. Available in kit (XWT17T) and tool only (XWT17Z) versions.
  • XWT18 - 18V LXT® Brushless 4-Speed Mid-Torque 1/2" Sq. Drive Impact Wrench w/ Detent Anvil. Available in kit (XWT18T) and tool only (XWT18Z) versions.
The impact wrenches are powered by a Makita-built brushless motor for longer run time. The brushless motor delivers 520 ft.lbs. of Fastening Torque and 740 ft.lbs. of Nut-Busting Torque.
 
Three forward and three reverse Auto-Stop modes provide increased efficiency to reduce the possibility of damaged materials and lost fasteners. The forward Auto-Stop modes allows the user to apply more torque while keeping within an expected range. The reverse Auto-Stop modes are engineered for more control when removing a fastener, which helps reduce lost fasteners when working overhead or in tight spaces.
 
The 4-speed power selection provides precise fastening control matching the speed to the application. The switch has settings ranging from 500 – 2,200 RPM (1,000 – 2,700 IPM). The additional Full Speed Mode reduces the trigger pull to reach full speed.
 
Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™)
Makita's Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™) is a protective seal inside the tool. It is designed to improve a tool’s operation in harsh conditions by channeling water and dust from key internal components.
 
18V LXT® System
Makita® LXT Cordless System, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries, takes a user from power tools to outdoor power equipment to get the job done. Makita 18V LXT Batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.
 
Star Protection Computer Controls
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 Lithium-Ion Batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
