    Comments about LXT 18V Cordless Lithium-Ion Brushless 1/2 in. Hammer Drill and Impact Driver Kit:

    I use this set every day a union commercial carpenter. The tool itself is very durable and will out perform all of the competition. my only complaint is the batteries ten to go bad with in a year, not all the batteries but i have replaced 3 already this year.

      Comments about LXT 18V Cordless Lithium-Ion Brushless 1/2 in. Hammer Drill and Impact Driver Kit:

      I use these pretty much every day for most of the work day. I've been a CPO loyalist since I received my first reconditioned LXT201 kit which looked brand new and saved me about $50. I've been a Makita loyalist since my first cordless drill about 15 years ago based on their great quality and durability. On the job you hear a lot about which tools are lasting and which are not. I have seen a lot of DeWalt and Milwaukee come and go but the Makita's are the staple in my world. LXT rocks!!

      Over the years I've went through a few of these kits and now I've been loving my new LXT248. The battery is the same as on my older models so I can swap them out or grab one from one of the older kits that have wore out. The new upgrade on these is the brushless which is great. Here are my observations of these after about a month of use:

      • They are much smaller and a bit lighter then my previous models
      • They are more powerful
      • They have a better run time.

      Makita says that these last longer but I'll have to get back to you on that. Other than that they are very similar to the one's I've owned before.

              New Vs. Reconditioned

              Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.

              • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
              • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
              • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee;
                New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.

              Warranty Information

              Makita LXT Lithium-ion Tool Warranty

              The Makita LXT Lithium-ion Warranty applies to both new and factory-reconditioned Makita tools. Every Makita ® 18V and 14.4V LXT Lithium-Ion Industrial Power Tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. If you are not satisfied with Makita 18V and 14.4V LXT Lithium-Ion tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide a replacement or refund. Every Makita 18V and 14.4V LXT Lithium-Ion tool is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of THREE YEARS from the date of original purchase. The Makita LXT Lithium-ion battery has a limited one-year warranty. Should any trouble develop during the three-year period, return the COMPLETE tool, freight prepaid, to one of Makita's Factory or Authorized Service Centers.

              If inspection shows the trouble is caused by defective workmanship or material, Makita will repair (or at our option, replace) without charge. This warranty does not apply to Makita Accessories, like flashlights.

              This Warranty does not apply where:

            • Repairs have been made or attempted by others
            • Repairs are required because of normal wear and tear
            • The tool has been abused, misused or improperly maintained
            • Alterations have been made to the tool

            • In no event shall Makita be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages from the sale or use of the product. This disclaimer applies to both during and after the term of this warranty. Makita disclaims liability for any implied warranties, including implied warranties of "merchantability" and "fitness" for a specific purpose, after the three-year term of this warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you many also have other rights which vary from state to state. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
