The Makita 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Brushless 2-Piece Combo Kit (model XT281S) gives you two efficient brushless tools for drilling, driving, and fastening. The Kit includes the category’s fastest-charging 3.0Ah batteries and the breadth-of-line of the Makita 18V LXT® system, so your batteries will power the expanding range of Makita tools and accessories.

The XT281S includes a variable speed ½” driver-drill with two speed settings and an efficient brushless motor that delivers 440 in.lbs. of Max Torque. For efficient fastening, the kit includes a variable speed impact driver with a full 1,500 inch-pounds of Max Torque. The 18V LXT® 3.0Ah batteries each reach a full charge in only 30 minutes.

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.

  • Efficient BL™ Brushless motor is electronically controlled to optimize battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per charge
  • The BL™ Brushless Motor eliminates carbon brushes, enabling the BL™ Motor to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life
  • The electronically-controlled BL™ Brushless Motor efficiently uses energy to match torque and RPM to the changing demands of the application

  • Star Protection Computer Controls™
  • Makita cordless tools are engineered for industrial applications, and for added protection during the most demanding jobs Makita created STAR Protection Computer Controls™. STAR is communications technology that monitors conditions during use, allowing the tool and battery to exchange data to protect against overloading, overdischarging and overheating. If STAR detects conditions that threaten to overload, overdischarge or overheat the tool or battery, the tool will automatically stop. At that time the user can either restart the tool, change or charge the battery, and put the tool back to work. When you slide a Makita 18V LXT® battery with the STAR symbol onto a Makita tool that has either the STAR symbol or a yellow terminal, you are benefitting from STAR Protection Computer Controls™.

  • XPT™ Extreme Protection Technology
  • When the job takes your Makita tool into harsh conditions, Makita Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™) provides added protection. XPT™ is a series of integrated seals engineered to channel away dust and water for increased durability. Wherever the job takes you, Makita tools equipped with XPT™ are engineered for increased durability and longer tool life.
