  • Makita® U.S.A., Inc., with a legacy of innovation in the cordless impact driver category, sets new standards with the introduction of the 18V LXT® Brushless 4-Speed Impact Driver (XDT16). The XDT16 offers users four speeds, as well as Makita’s exclusive Quick-Shift Mode™ for increased fastening control. With the best power-to-weight ratio, the XDT16 is the most compact and lightest weight impact driver in its category.

    4 Levels of Impact
    The XDT16 offers four precision fastening settings: Assist Mode, auto-stop, and two tightening modes.

    • Assist Mode (A-mode) is for driving longer fasteners into wood and helps eliminate "screw cam-out" and "cross threading" by driving at low speed until tightening begins.
    • Auto-Stop Mode stops rotation and impact when the fastener is loosened adequately. This is ideal for mechanics when removing nuts or bolts.
    • Tightening Mode 1 (T-1 Mode) is to be used on self-drilling or Tek screws for lighter gauge materials. The tool starts spinning at full speed, then stops upon impact, keeping the tool from stripping the material.
    • Tightening Mode 2 (T-2 Mode) is for using self-drilling or Tek screws on heavier gauge materials. In this mode, the tool starts spinning at full speed, then reduces speed at impact, allowing the user time to draw materials together. This reduces breaking of the fastener or driver.

    The 4-speed power selection (0-1,100/ 0-2,100/ 0-3,200/ 0-3,600 RPM & 0-1,100/ 0-2,600/ 0-3,600/ 0-3,800 IPM) provides precise fastening control. The Quick-Shift Mode™ feature automatically uses the brushless motor’s electronic controls to find the best balance of speed and torque for each application for more efficient fastening. For added convenience, a one-touch 4-speed power selector button is located under the chuck for one-handed speed change. All controls are located on the tool at the user’s fingertips.

    The XDT16 delivers high speed, high torque, and precision fastening in a compact size.

    Shine Bright Like an LED Light
    Two bright LED lights are placed on the sides of the chuck to help eliminate shadows and illuminate a larger area. The lights also pre-glow in preparation of drilling and provide an after-glow.

    Makita’s 18V LXT System
    The XDT16 is part of Makita’s expanding 18V LXT system. With over 200 solutions, LXT is the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries. Makita 18V batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.

    Technology that Protects Battery and Tool
    Makita created STAR Protection Computer Controls™ for added protection during the most demanding industrial applications. STAR Protection is communication technology that monitors conditions during use, allowing the tool and battery to exchange real-time data to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating. If STAR detects conditions that threaten the tool or battery, the tool will automatically stop. At that time the user can restart the tool, change the battery, or charge the battery. Then put the tool back to work! The battery tool can be powered by Makita 18V LXT® and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries for added versatility, as long as the battery features the STAR symbol indicating STAR Protection inside.

    Another technical feature is Makita’s Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™). 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.

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 reduced vibration, each rotary hammer is equipped with Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT®). More than just a padded handle, AVT is an internal counterbalance that uses air pressure to move counterweight pistons in the opposite direction of the drive piston to actively reduce vibration. In addition, the vibration-absorbing back handles and/or side handles further reduce vibration.

    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.

    Manage Dust with Dust Extraction Attachments

    All Rotary Hammers are OSHA Table 1 compliant, when paired with an on-board dust extractor attachment. The trigger-activated dust extractor is powered by a separate motor which increases suction efficiency without sacrificing the performance of the rotary hammer. The filter-cleaning mechanism is designed to maintain optimum suction efficiency. The rubber suction gasket is engineered to provide consistent contact with the work surface, where the dust is channeled to the clear dust container with HEPA filter which captures 99.97% of dust particles (size .3 microns).
