When they first came out years ago, impact drivers were very popular in Japan but it took a while for Americans to realize what a terrific advantage impact drivers have over an electric drill when it comes to driving long screws into wood, especially decking. American companies like Porter Cable caught on to the idea and started competing with impact drivers offered by overseas companies. The idea for impact drivers was born long ago with the inventions of (1) the impact wrench, used in every automotive garage, and (2) the hammer drill used to power masonry bits into concrete and other extremely hard materials.
The tool is powered by a hard-hitting Makita built motor and impact mechanism that delivers 531in/lbs of maximum torque and 0-3,000 impacts per minute (IPM). The tool comes with a variable speed mechanism (0-2,000 RPM) for a huge range of applications from auto and home repairs to professional installation. For enhanced comfort on the job, the driver also has a soft grip handle and a large, convenient paddle switch for easier operation. Additionally, the tool has an over 12in extension capacity providing the extra reach necessary to work in deep and tight spaces. Makita has also designed this power tool with a built-in LED light to illuminate work spaces to ensures operator precision. To maximize convenience Makita has also added belt clip mounts on either side of the tool, and a phosphorescent bumper ring, like a beacon, to help locate the tool in dark work areas. Makita's 18v angle impact driver utilizes the same Makita battery and charger technology as the BTD041 providing superior power and battery life.
Driving screws, of course! This is why most people get an impact driver to begin with. Quick speed, high power, no cam out, easy to handle... should we continue? Of course, you will now have to worry about tearing the heads off of some of the weaker screws. It's a small price to pay!
