Makita FD05R1 12V Max CXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Driver-Drill

Makita FD05R1 is one of the latest model, modern 3/8 inch size cordless driver-drill kits with a Makita motor that offers 250 inch pounds of maximum torque- both fast and powerful, that works on 12V Max CXT slide lithium ion battery (BL1041B as part of the growing 12V Max CXT series) for a variety of driving, drilling and fastening applications with a variable two speed design of 0 to 450 and 0 to 1700 rpm rotating speed. The whole unit is ergonomically designed and is very lightweight and compact as it is only 7.44 inch long with measurements of 14.5 x 4.4 x 12 inches and weighs just 2.4 pounds that will make it easier to work with in longer applications in tighter areas and great for those that want less weight (less operator fatigue). Fast and convenient bit changes are possible with the 3/8 inch keyless chuck, handle is ergonomic and is comfy to hold with its rubber soft grip and the integrated LED light will let you see the stuff you’re working on clearly and with its compact ergonomic design you can use it in tight spaces. It is made in China like most tools and other products but this says nothing about the quality of the products as you would well be aware.

Makita FD05R1 12V Max CXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Driver-Drill Kit

The driver-drill can stand on its own conveniently with the 12V Max CXT slide li-ion 4.0Ah battery (rather than the pod type tool batteries that this unit is not compatible with anyway) with longer run time, includes two of these batteries for enhanced balance and they include LED-backlit charge level indicators (you’re recommended to use Makita batteries and chargers with this unit for the best performance). Battery Protection Circuit built into these lithium ion batteries help prevent overheating, over-discharging and overloading and with great ergonomics, compact design and high performance.  In the box you will find the main drill-driver, two 12V max CXT lithium ion batteries, battery charger and tool case and you will get three long years of limited warranty on the driver-drill (FD05Z- tool only), batteries (BL1021B) and the charger (DC10WD). All Makita industrial power tools are checked and tested prior to getting out of the factory and apart from the three year warranty that guarantees everything to be free of defects and lets you send it back with freight prepaid if you encounter any problems, you can also return the tool you purchased within 30 days (if you’re not satisfied) and Makita will give you a refund or replacement.
