- Makita BTD142HW 18V Lithium-Ion Cordless Impact Driver
- Brand: Makita | Category: Other
I recently bought the Makita 18 volt drill. I wish I would have bought the kit that included the impact. I have never owned an impact before, but have heard good things.
I actually ordered this on ebay as a bare tool only. I came in brand new condition. I was anxious to try it out. I put a battery on it and started to drive some screws into some scrap. I was amazed. My drill works well with a screw guide, but this was effertless. There was absolutely no twist when I drove the screws like with a drill. I am very glad I bought this. I have a playset to build for the kids soon and I will be using it drive several lag screws.
Pros: very lightweight
led light just above trigger just like on the drill (very handy)
more power than any woodworker should ever need to drive a screw
my son likes it
very good battery life
Cons: none that I can find yet
