Makita has a legacy of innovation in the cordless impact driver category and the 18-Volt LXT Brushless 4-Speed Impact Driver (XDT16T) sets new standards. The XDT16T offers users 4 speeds, as well as Makita’s exclusive Quick-Shift Mode for increased fastening control. Quick-Shift Mode uses the brushless motors electronic controls to find the best balance of speed and torque for each application for more efficient fastening. Another precision setting is Tightening Mode (T-mode), which downshifts and reduces rotation and impact speed prior to driving the screw into place and is engineered to minimize screw thread stripping, screw breakage and damage to work. The XDT16T delivers industry-leading performance in a compact and ergonomic design. Added features include the 1-touch 4-speed power selector button under the chuck, which enables 1-handed speed changes and reverse rotation auto-stop mode which stops rotation and impact when the fastener is loosened adequately to help prevent over-loosening and dropped fasteners. Its part of Makita’s expanding 18-Volt LXT system, the worlds largest cordless tool system powered by 18-Volt Lithium-Ion batteries. Makita 18-Volt LXT batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.
- Quick-shift mode uses the brushless motors electronic controls to find the best balance of speed and torque for each application for more efficient fastening
- BL brushless motor delivers 3,600 maximum RPM and 1,600 in./lbs. of maximum torque
- 4-speed power selection (0 RPM to 1,100 RPM/0 RPM to 2,100 RPM/0 RPM to 3,200 RPM/0 RPM to 3,600 RPM and 0 IPM to 1,100 IPM/0 IPM to 2,600 IPM/0 IPM to 3,600 IPM/0 IPM to 3,800 IPM) provides precise fastening control for a wide range of applications
- Additional 1-touch 4-speed power selector button under the chuck for added convenience
- Assist mode (A-mode) feature helps eliminate screw cam-out and cross threading by driving at low-speed until tightening begins
- 2 tightening modes (T-mode) for faster tightening of self-drilling screws in thick or thin gauge metal, helps prevent damage to the screw or work-piece
- Reverse rotation auto-stop mode stops rotation and impact when fastener is loosened adequately
- Built-in LED lights on both sides helps eliminate shadows and illuminate a larger area
- Compact and ergonomic design at only 4-9/16 in. L
- Weighs only 3.4 lbs. with battery for reduced operator fatigue
- Efficient BL brushless motor is electronically controlled to optimize battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per charge
- BL brushless motor eliminates carbon brushes, enabling the BL motor to run cooler and more efficiently for longer-life
- Electronically-controlled BL brushless motor efficiently uses energy to match torque and RPM to the changing demands of the application
- Features Extreme Protection Technology (XPT) which is engineered to provide increased dust and water resistance in harsh job site conditions
- Convenient 1-touch 1/4 in. hex chuck for quick bit changes
- All metal gear housing for increased job site durability
- Rubberized soft grip provides increased comfort on the job
- Makita’s proprietary hammer and anvil impact mechanism is manufactured using the best raw materials with the highest quality steel and unique heat hardening process for maximum fastening and driving power

Very please with it.
Not the most powerful but definately the best with all the assists settings its has.
Awesome driver highly recommended for anyone. Fast, reliable, easy to use.
Just what I needed–a reputable, brushless impact driver that delivers exceptional power and performance for at-home or other small, miscellaneous projects. Great bundle deal and the funniest thing that was ever implemented is that you get to hear–I think it was 5–different musical tones prior to repeatedly connecting and disconnecting the battery pack lol. The only setback for me is that this amazing bundle did not also come with the drill and screw or drill-driver bit set, but that is totally fine because I had also purchased that, too.
This impact will survive abusive users. It’s a very nice tool and everyone I work around knows it. Tag it if you want to keep it.
Awesome power. Awesome deal with 5ah battery. This tool is a beast. Also bought Makita brand screw bits. WOW this does the job right!
Very nice impact driver. Has a great speed control system and sensitive trigger. Long battery life, charges quickly, & motor runs cool. Plenty of power when you need it, but can be controlled easily for delicate work. I will buy more Makita products.
