CXT® is the next generation in 12-volt max cordless tools. 12V max CXT® gives users a more compact solution with more comfort and more capacity. The slide style lithium-ion batteries provide superior ergonomics and comfort, and allow go-to tools like the impact driver and drills to stand up on their own for added convenience. Select 12V max CXT® tools are equipped with efficient brushless motors for longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life. For even longer run time, the expanding 12V max CXT® platform includes an efficient 4.0Ah battery.
