MAKITA EXPANDS 18V LXT SUB-COMPACT LINE

The 18V LXT Sub-Compact Brushless ½” Hammer Driver-Drill (XPH15) is only 6-1/2” in length for a compact drilling solution.

August 17, 2021, La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc., the leader in cordless power tool innovation, is pleased to announce the 18V LXT® Sub-Compact Brushless ½” Hammer Driver-Drill (XPH15), Impact Driver (XDT18) and ½” Driver-Drill (XFD15). These new LXT Products offer users compact tools to access tight spaces.
 
18V LXT® Sub-Compact Brushless ½” Hammer Driver-Drill (XPH15)
The 18V LXT® Sub-Compact Brushless ½” Hammer Driver-Drill (XPH15) is ergonomic and compact at only 6-1/2” in length. It features a 2-speed transmission (0-500 and 0-1,700 RPM) for drilling, fastening, and hammer-drilling applications. The XPH15 is engineered to handle drilling and driving applications in wood, masonry, and steel.
 
Additional features include an all-metal ½” self-ratcheting chuck for improved bit-gripping strength, a built-in L.E.D. light that helps illuminate the work surface, and a rubberized grip for increased comfort. The hammer driver-drill is also equipped with Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™), a protective seal inside the tool engineered for improved water resistance by channeling water and dust from the tool’s key internal components.
 
18V LXT® Sub-Compact Brushless Impact Driver (XDT18)
The 18V LXT® Sub-Compact Brushless Impact Driver (XDT18)offers a variable 2-speed operation for a wide range of fastening applications. The Assist Mode (A-Mode) helps eliminate "screw cam-out" and "cross threading" by driving at low speed until tightening begins and is ideal for driving longer fasteners. It delivers 1,240 in.lbs. of Max Torque. Other features include wo L.E.D. lights to illuminate the work area and a ball-bearing design to minimize bit wobble when fastening.
 
At only 5-1/4 in. and 2.6 lbs. (with 2.0Ah battery), it is a fastening solution with superior comfort and handling. The 18V Sub-Compact Impact Driver offers the size and weight of lower voltage tools, but with the performance, power, and compatibility of 18-Volt. It is identified by the distinctive black trade dress.
 
18V LXT® Sub-Compact Brushless ½” Driver-Drill (XFD15)
The 18V LXT Sub-Compact Brushless Driver-Drill is a drilling and driving solution with significantly less weight. The XFD15 offers the size and weight of lower voltage tools, but with the performance, power, and compatibility of 18-Volt. It has an efficient brushless motor with two speed settings and two L.E.D. lights to illuminate the work area. At only 5-7/8” long, it is a compact drilling and driving solution with superior comfort and handling. This driver-drill is ideal for working in tight spaces.
 
18V LXT® System
The LXT 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.  
 
For improved tool performance and extended battery life, both driver-drills feature 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.
