The Makita 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless 3/8” Angle Drill (model XAD01Z) delivers cordless drilling power into tough-to-reach spaces.
It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion series, the world’s largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. Makita 18V Lithium-Ion 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, 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® and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
The XAD01 features a Makita-built 4-pole motor that delivers 121 in. lbs. of Max Torque, with an all-metal transmission and 0-1,800 RPM’s for a wide range of drilling and driving tasks into steel and wood.
The XAD01 weighs only 4.0 lbs. (with battery) with over one foot of tool extension for extra reach into tough-to-reach spaces. The tool has a 3/8” keyed metal chuck for improved bit gripping power. In addition, the keyed chuck allowed engineers to reduce the size of the angle drill head to a very compact height of 2-5/8”, making it ideal for use in close quarters applications. The soft grip handle and conveniently-located paddle switch are designed for comfortable operation. The built-in L.E.D. light illuminates the work surface for more efficient work.
The XAD01 brings cordless drilling power into tough-to-reach spaces. The compact, angled design makes it perfect for assembly, garage door installation, steel framing, woodworking, electrical, and any other job that requires a best-in-class engineered cordless angle drill in close-quarters applications.
