The Makita XFD11RB is a 2-speed cordless drill driver that features an electronically-controlled brushless motor. The drill comes with a tool case, an extra battery, and a Rapid Optimum charger. Other specs include a peak torque of 350 pounds and a high no-load RPM of 1700
While presumably not the most powerful drill driver around (it scores rather-average specs like a peak torque of 350 in-lbs), the Makita XPH11RB sports a 18V brushless motor, a rubberized handled described as ergonomic,and two 2000mAh batteries.
Its 38.4-ounce weight gives it a somewhat-compact vibe, and the Makita FD05R1 drill driver deals with drilling chores using a 3/8-inch keyless chuck, a 2000mAh battery, an LED light, and a 2-speed brushless motor, which reaches 1700 RPM, but however, only reaches 250 inch-pounds of maximum torque.
Tackling drilling tasks using a 1/4-inch hex chuck, an LED light, a 2000mAh battery, a hard carrying case, and a 2-speed brushless motor that, quite-sadly, only reaches a maximum torque of 250 inch-pounds (yet revs at 1700 RPM), the Makita FD06R1 drill driver also shows off a rather-lightweight figure with its 33.6-ounce weight.
The Makita XDT11R cordless impact driver's 2000mAh lithium-ion battery has a rather-quick 25-minute charge time, and it also shows off an all-metal gear casing, a hard carrying case, and a 4-pole motor that yields a peak torque of 1460 inch-pounds.
Weighing 35.2 ounces and measuring 7.43 inches long, the Makita FD02W drill driver joins other compact drill drivers while taking on drilling chores with its 3/8-inch chuck, a 2-speed motor that yields 200-inch pounds of torque, a holster, and a carrying case.
