Solid tool for the professional
Comment:Put the LXT through its paces doing two commercial projects. The brushless motor and electronic controls performed flawlessly. I noticed substantial increase in battery longevity compared to my old Makita impact driver. During heavy use I would have to recharge 1-2 times daily. The LXT, on the other hand, can go 2-3 days without charging. I dropped it off staging 8' onto a concrete floor and no apparent damage except a flattened spot on the housing. I have appreciated the speed control for more delicate or precise driving tasks. Also the battery level indicator is helpful. When the reading is low I'll put that battery in the charger and take the battery from my Makita drill and put that into the LXT. The fresh battery then gores into the drill. That way I never run the battery down too far. Anyway, very happy with the performance so far.

Comment:Only had it for a month. Been using it mostly to remove screws from an older deck. Working beautifully! My younger sister has also been using it as well (first time she has ever used an impact drill.) She's not much of a 'tool person', but she loves this driver. I am completely satisfied with this Makita product.
