Makita's 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 3- Speed Brushless Motor Impact Driver, model BTD144 provides precise fastening control for a wide range of applications, from fastening cabinet screws to driving lag bolts.
3-Speed Power Control and Brushless Motor Technology
The Makita-built brushless motor with variable 3-speed power selection offers soft, medium- and hard-impact power to cover a wide range of fastening tasks:
Consistent with all of Makita’s impact products, the proprietary hammer and anvil impact
mechanism in the BTD144 is manufactured using the best raw materials with the highest quality steel and unique heat hardening process for maximum fastening and driving power.
Makita’s Brushless Motor Technology delivers increased motor efficiency to provide up to 20% longer battery life per charge. With the motor’s more efficient power, the BTD144 has a more compact design at just 5-1/2” in length and only 3.3 lbs. with an 18V LXT Lithium-Ion battery.
Ergonomic and Ease of Use Features
The BTD144 is engineered with ergonomic and ease-of-use features. The built-in L.E.D. light has an independent on/off switch to illuminate the work surface, when needed. In addition, a battery warning light and the built-in L.E.D. light both flash when it is time to recharge the battery. The BTD144 has a “one-touch” ¼” hex chuck for simple bit insertion, a tool hook, and an electric brake for increased efficiency. The ergonomic shape fits like a glove with even pressure and easy control.
Makita 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Battery Technology
The new BTD144 is powered by Makita’s 18V LXT Lithium-Ion battery and the ENERGY STAR rated Makita Rapid Optimum Charger. Makita’s 18V Lithium-Ion battery delivers 2,000 cycles – two-and-a-half times more than Ni-Cd – and the Rapid Optimum Charger will charge an 18V LXT Lithium-Ion battery in just 30 minutes for less downtime on the jobsite.
Engineered for a Wide Range of Applications
Due to their versatility, impact drivers are gaining broader acceptance for a wide range of
fastening tasks. With its variable 3-speed power selection, brushless motor, and 1,420 in. lbs. of Max Torque, the BTD144 is engineered for almost any fastening application, ranging from small cabinet screws to lag bolts and TEK screws. The BTD144 is ideal for HVAC, mechanical, electrical, fencing/decking pro contractors, steel stud framers, woodworkers, finish carpenters, and general contractors seeking a best-in-class industrial quality 18V Lithium-Ion cordless impact driver.
Model BTD144 is a kit that includes two 18V LXT Lithium-Ion batteries, a 30-minute Rapid
Optimum Charger, and a tool case. The BTD144Z includes the tool only.
