Just came across this as I was browsing Makita products on Amazon, so not sure if this is everyday price. But HD had it listed for $290 and browsing seems to be $200+ everywhere else. Been wanting a high torque impact gun for a while, and this looks like a steal for the spec. Was looking at one 4-5 years ago that was spec'd at 335ft-lb torque, but couldn't pull the trigger for the price(too long can't remember, but definitely wasnt this cheap, at least when I was looking), but already ordered this one at this price.

Thanks for sharing,

I was thinking this XWT04S1 kit was a decent deal at $129

Went with your Amazon link instead, I got plenty of batteries and this seems like a better built unit.
Quote from grassroots_1 :
Yep, max torque on that one is 325ft/lbs. Not even in the same ballpark. Good find OP.

Honestly, mechanics aside, most people are going to find this impact wrench to be overkill, especially for basic homeowner use and would probably be better served with the XWT04S1 kit.

Feeling kind of fortunate that as a carpenter I don't have to lug either of those around all day. They're essentially as big/heavy as my framing nailer

In stock on January 21, 2021.

I have one for a few years now. It is really bulky and heavy and most of the usage is taking lug nuts off and on. I've done lower control arms in an MDX. CRV, brakes, struts, etc. This bulky has limit use for those kinds of repair. The best overall tool would be the M12 Stubby. This price is cheap. Get one if you don't have one.

Quote from supermanwoot :
Its not really overkill IMO. If you ever need to loosen a crank bolt or even axle nut or even some exhaust bolts that are rusted on, you'll be glad you have this. The main issue with this impact is that its HUGE so unless its an easily accessible bolt, you won't be able to use it but for lug nuts I prefer this to my mid torque because it doesnt impact as much which makes it quieter.
I've loosened the crank bolt and axle nuts just fine on my 25 year old truck with the XWT15Z, and the compact size means I can pull it out for all kinds of other jobs too. But I'm fortunate to have moved out of the rust belt, so your mileage may vary.

This is for sure a great deal, but would not be my only torque impact for working on passenger vehicles. It's just too bulky for most things.

Quote from Nalyd :
This is a GREAT price. If you've been thinking about a high torque impact wrench jump on this right away.

I just used this exact tool to change over to winter tires on a SUV and minivan without any problems loosening the lug nuts.

This thing is built like a tank so it is not light.
I'm using the smaller XWT11Z for lug nuts. I'd be careful using one this powerful unless you were working on heavy equipment.

Yeah. I made sure to select amazon as the seller too. Tried my phone app rather than desktop, and it looks dead. Oh well. Next time.

Great deal on an awesome tool.

I doubted that any battery powered tool could keep up with my pro-grade air equipment. First time using it I broke the same sockets I've used with my air impact for years and it did the job more quickly.

It doesn't seem battery usage intense, but I haven't used it for more than ~40 bolts/nuts at a time.
