Longer run time and superior fastening speed give users greater material range for installation

The brushless motor eliminates carbon brushes, enabling the motor to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life

July 14, 2022, La Mirada, CA Makita U.S.A., Inc., manufacturer of high-quality professional tools and accessories, announces the new 18V LXT® Brushless 6,000 RPM Autofeed Screwdriver (model XRF03Z) The Autofeed Screwdriver delivers superior fastening speed to handle a variety of materials and applications. 

“The Autofeed Screwdriver (XRF03Z) is a great addition to the lineup of fastening tools in the LXT® system,” said Rudy Jansen, residential construction product manager, Makita U.S.A., Inc. “The Autofeed Screwdriver can handle a variety of drywall, decking, and framing applications faster, allowing the user to increase productivity with less fatigue.”


Higher Fastening Speed, Long Run Time
The Autofeed Screwdriver uses a Makita-built brushless motor to achieve a maximum fastening speed of 6,000 RPM and can be used in a variety of work environments. It can drive up to 2,250 screws with Push Drive™ Technology on a single charge of an 18V LXT® 5.0Ah Battery. Push Drive™ enables the user to operate the tool but only has the motor running when the fastener engages for longer run times and reduced noise.


Greater Versatility of Fasteners
Switching from a work environment that requires different materials to be installed is achievable with the Autofeed Screwdriver as it can accept screws ranging from 1” to 2-3/16”. The depth that the fastener is installed can be adjusted using a one-touch wheel that allows the fasten to either sit at the surface of the material or below depending on the application.


Additional Features
Engineered for continuous use, the Autofeed Screwdriver is both compact and ergonomic at only 15-5/8" long and weighs only 4.9 lbs. (with battery) for reduced operator fatigue. The handle is designed with the user in mind with a comfortable rubberized grip and as well as a lock-on button for continuous use.
