Deal DetailsLast Edited by FatFaluz July 28, 2016 at 10:25 AM
HomeDepot.com has the Makita 18V LXT cordless hammer drill/driver and impact driver combo kit , model XT211, for $149 with free shipping. Price valid until July 30 and "[on] clearance - limited quantities while supplies last".
- compact hammer drill/driver-drill
- impact driver (neither tools are brushless)
- 2 lithium-ion 3.0Ah batteries
- rapid optimum charger
- plastic hard tool case, 2 belt hooks
- 3 years warranty
Model numbers and specs:
- XPH01 hammer drill: 1/2" single sleeve chuck, 400/1500 rpm with 2 speed gearbox, 480 in-lb of torque, 6000/22500 bpm, LED light with afterglow (love this feature), no side handle or depth gauge (this is a light duty hammer drill after all).
- LXDT04Z impact driver: 2300 rpm, 1420 in-lb of torque, 3200 ipm, LED with afterglow.
- (2) BL1830 batteries: 3.0Ah, sadly no battery gauge like some newer batteries.
- DC18RC charger: charges the included 3.0Ah batteries in 22~30 minutes and 1.5Ah in 15min, almost half the time of Milwaukee and DeWALT standard chargers, thanks to a fan blowing into the battery's unique air channel that cools the cells and circuitry (a few people do report the fan getting whiny or dying) (EDIT: Milwaukee came out with a fast charger last October, DeWALT's will be released in August 15 while Makita has always included fast chargers since ~2006)
- 824812-5 hard plastic case.
Not as good as the previous FP deal in February (HD Special of the Day deal) for the same price, as it came with a bonus 21-Piece Impact Gold Ultra Magnetic Insert Bit Set which is $13 if purchased separately.
