Push Drive™ Technology delivers increased efficiency, longer run time and lower noise for drywall fastening . With Push Drive™ the motor starts only when the fastener is engaged with the work piece, so battery power is used more efficiently for significantly longer run time. Contractors benefit from less downtime charging batteries, and from a quieter work environment since the motor runs only during fastening.
The 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless Drywall Screwdriver Kit (model XSF03RX2) is a welcome solution for drywall contractors for hanging sheetrock, metal framing, installing subfloors, backer board, and decking applications. It's powered by a Makita BL™ Brushless Motor for longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life. With the exclusive Push Drive™ Technology, the 18V Drywall Screwdriver can be set on lock-on mode so the motor starts only when the fastener is engaged. This gives contractors a quieter work environment, and also saves on battery power. It’s built for added durability with Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™), which is engineered for improved dust and water resistance for operation in harsh job site conditions.
On a single charge of the 18V LXT® Compact 2.0 Ah battery, the Screwdriver set in Push Drive mode will drive up to 930 1-1/4" screws to attach 1/2" drywall to a 20 ga. steel stud. For added efficiency, the battery features an integrated L.E.D. battery charge level indicator, and will recharge in only 25 minutes.
Model XSF03RX2 is a kit and includes a Collated Auto-Feed Screw Magazine with easy and reliable auto-feed capability for production drywall hanging.
It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion system, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries. 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.
