Makita DTD171Z 18V Li-ion LXT Brushless Impact Driver - Batteries and Charger Not Included
About this deal
Battery Protection Circuit keeps the cell safe, so none of the high voltage, extra temperature or over-discharge can harm it. As it uses lithium-ion technology, the device gets fade-free power. New impact mode, 'Assist-Mode' drives slowly to start screw before full tightening to eliminate "screw cam-out" and "cross threading“ There is a push button to change the movement from forward to reverse and vice versa. For enhanced safety and convenience, the device has electric brakes as well as LED lights on its front. Moreover, it’s built with an ergonomic grip that gives you comfortable handling and minimum wrist stress.
High quality and ultra-compact impact drivers come with a brushless motor and maximum torque of 175Nm. It gives you complete control with a three-stage power trigger and TEK mode, which prevents over fastening of screws. Electronic 4-stage impact power selection providing a no-load speed of 3600rpm providing up to 3800ipm, the percussive action saving time and effort, driving screws up to 30% faster than a conventional drill/driver, no pilot hole is needed even into hardwood. Another powerful impact tool with a brushless motor that delivers a maximum torque of 175Nm. Due to brushless functionality, DTD153Z never utilizes carbon brushes. Hence the device runs efficiently without any overheating.Its electronically controlled 18V Li-ion battery is optimized to provide 50 per cent high runtime. The device is integrated with Battery Protection Circuit that keeps the cells safe in case of over-discharge, voltage spikes and high temperature.
Makita started the cordless power tools production in the 1970s, but Dewalt was nowhere around it until 1990s. But once the brand got involved, it blew almost all the competitors out of the ground. Overall, we cannot declare a winner among any of them in terms of performance. The Makita DTD171 come with twin bright job lights on either side (left & right) of the impact driver for better illumination in dark spaces. The DTD154 has a single job light which is located above the trigger. Body sizeEasily identified by its grey and blue colour, the device works well with standard screws measuring M4 to M8, M5 to M14 standard bolt, M5 to M12 high tensile bolt, and coarse thread of 22 to 125mm. Its 18V power offers 1.3 Amp of battery power and a runtime up to 60 minutes, only if you use the G-Series DC18WA charger (separately available).
If your job involves driving screws into concrete or hardwood, then the Makita DTD152Z can be your best alley. You might also want to consider a few other options we have mentioned as runner ups.The A-Mode is designed to eliminate screw cam-out and cross threading caused by high speed rotation before the screw bites in the material. Electric Brake: The 18v brushless driver has an electronic brake control, so the motor will stop and cut out as soon as the trigger is released. This allows the power tool user to have complete control when on the job.
