MAKITA LAUNCHES TWO 18V LXT BRUSHLESS CORDLESS IMPACT WRENCHES

The 4-Speed Sq. Drive Impact Wenches feature a friction ring anvil or detent anvil

The ½” Sq. Drive Impact Wrenches with a friction ring anvil (XWT14) or detent anvil (XWT15) feature three forward and three reverse auto-stop modes for a wide range of applications.

June 16, 2020, La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc., manufacturer of high-quality professional tools and accessories, has introduced two new 18V LXT® Brushless Cordless 4-speed ½” Sq. Drive Impact Wrenches – one with a friction ring anvil (XWT14) and one with detent anvil (XWT15). Both impact wrenches provide improved fastening control ideal for automotive, installation, and fabrication trades.
 
The new impact wrenches include the following:
  • XWT14 - 18V LXT® Brushless 4-Speed 1/2" Sq. Drive Impact Wrench w/ Friction Ring Anvil. Available in kit (XWT14T) and tool only (XWT14Z) versions.
  • XWT15 - 18V LXT® Brushless 4-Speed 1/2" Sq. Drive Impact Wrench w/ Detent Anvil. Available in kit (XWT15T) and tool only (XWT15Z) versions.
All the Makita® 18V LXT Brushless 4-Speed ½” Sq. Drive Impact Wrenches combine extended run time and speed control for unmatched fastening performance. They are powered by a Makita brushless motor for longer run time. The brushless motor delivers 240 ft.lbs. of Max Torque and 430 ft.lbs. of Nut-Busting Torque.
 
Precise fastening control is achieved through the 4-speed power selection switch with settings ranging from 1,000 – 3,200 RPM (1,800 – 4,000 IPM). In addition, three forward and three reverse Auto-Stop modes bring added precision and help 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 combination of four speed settings and multiple Auto-Stop modes provides unmatched fastening precision,” said Aaron Israel, associate product manager, Makita U.S.A. “For example, when removing a nut from a threaded bolt it’s easy to “over-loosen” and drop the nut. In reverse Auto-Stop mode the impact wrench senses lowering tension and will stop rotation when the nut is near the end of the bolt, even at full trigger. This helps eliminate the hassle of dropped fasteners.”
 
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
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.
