There are dozens of combination tool kits for sale, but none delivers more power, run time or professional features than the Makita 18-volt LXT400 Four-Piece Lithium-ion Combo Kit. The kit includes: a 1/2-inch hammer-drill/screwdriver that produces 560 inch/pounds of torque, a 1/2-inch impact driver that delivers an amazing 1,280 inch/pounds of torque, a full-size 6-1/2-inch circular saw, and a four-position flashlight that has a superbright Xenon bulb. All four tools are powered by Makita's high-performance, never-say-die 3 amp/hour lithium-ion batteries, which weigh much less than comparable nicad batteries, but deliver more than twice the run time.

The drill has a three-speed motor for easily handling any drilling or screwdriving job, and when switched to the hammer mode, it will quickly bore through the toughest concrete. The powerful impact driver uses a combination of bit rotation and percussive blows to drive in the largest, longest screws-including lag screws-without any wrist-twisting torque. The circular saw comes with a thin-kerf, carbide-tipped blade, which cuts cleanly while reducing drag on the motor-and that saves battery life. The handy flashlight will run about five hours on a fully charged battery. It has an adjustable head for directing light exactly where you need it, and the flashlight will stand upright. And it all that weren't enough, each of the three power tools has an on-board light that helps illuminate the work area.

The four tools come with two LXT lithium-ion batteries, a 45-minute battery charger, and a soft-sided tote bag. All total, the kit weighs just over 25 pounds. This isn't the most affordable combo kit on the market, but it might just be the last one you'll ever purchase.--Joseph Truini

(This is an amendment of my earlier review, based on some feedback from the discussion posts. Thanks M. Black and Stevie Q for your comments. I've also had the kit for 2 years now, which has raised some durability issues.)

My Dewalt cordless drill had served me well, but the batteries were getting weak, and I thought it time to step up to a new technology. There were several choices out there: Panasonic's superb, long-life drills, Hitachi's cool-looking powerhouse, and Milwaukee's 28 v lithium ion kit. Which is the best choice?

I almost bought the Panasonic, which was a great value for the drill alone, certainly from appearances a better buy than the Makita. But I thought I could use the extra tools in the kit. Ultimately, I went for the kit, and I'm glad I did. Put me in the category of those who never had that much use for battery powered tools (other than a drill) because of my perception that they had limited power. I always wanted the biggest, the best. The Makita lithium ion combo kit changed my perception.

First, the drill. That 560 in-lbs of torque is more than enough. It compares favorably to Milwaukee 28 v.'s 600 ft-lbs, and weighs less, only 5.2 lbs. The drill has 3 speed settings, and within each setting you can also vary the speed by pulling the trigger less or more. You have to wonder how they crammed all of that power in such a light tool!

Well, it's not just a drill. Flip the top switch, and it's a hammer drill. I had never used a hammer drill before, always having forced those concrete bits using a regular drill, which worked okay. But as a hammer drill, this Makita tore right through tiles and concrete so fast I had to slow down--deep, fine holes without overheating the bit, and fast. What a pleasure.

I have an old Craftsman 18V drill and saw combo that I've used since 1997. They worked great but recently one of the batteries finally died so rather than replace it I decided to buy a whole new combo set. After all, there have been a lot of advancements in cordless tools since '97. In the meantime, I've had the opportunity to use my friend's Dewalt's, Milwaukee's, etc. and they're all great products. But recently I had occasion to use the Makita Lithium-Ion Impact Drill and I knew I'd found my next set! I drilled 3" fencing screws for hours and it was ridiculously easy with the impact-action. I'm telling you if you find yourself running fencing or deck screws with any regularity, you HAVE to try one of these things. Awesome. I immediately searched the web to brush up on this Lithium-Ion technology and beyond a little added expense at this point, what's not to like? So I've since purchased this combo set and it is slick. It comes with a high quality canvas bag. The bag is much more utilitarian than the formed-plastic boxes that usually come with sets such as these. The interior of the bag has two holsters to secure each drill. The holsters are sewn into the side walls of the bag with velcro straps that keep both drills secured. There are also pockets for the batteries and charger. The flashlight and the circular saw fit between but there is plenty of room for the Makita kit and much more (if you need to haul more tools). The exterior of the bag has 4 zip pockets and 2 velcro pockets for odds and ends. Another cool feature concerning the tools is that each tool is equipped with LED lights that automatically illuminate your work area when you squeeze the trigger.Read more ›

All of the tools in this kit are a perfect balance of power and size. They provide all the punch of other 18v systems while weighing less then most 12v tools!

Makita could have simply changed to a lithium battery and called it a day. But they did much more; Makita has redesigned the ergonomics of every tool in this set. In the past their tool handles tended to be on the large and awkward side but this new line feels perfect to hold. The grips are smaller and covered in soft rubber. The weight of the tools has been redistributed and are all much better balanced then their NON-lithium counterparts. In addition, the tools have LED lights to brighten the work area and come in an awesome tool bag.

My review of each tool:

+ Impact driver - 10/10 Flawless!

+ Circular saw - 9/10 handle could be a lil more behind the tool

+ Light - 9/10 needs more detents

+ Reciprocating saw - 10/10 awesome!

+ Hammer drill - 8/10 great for a hammer drill but a lil bulky for basic driver use. I will keep my Panasonic 15.6 for most of my everyday driver needs; it is still the best non-hammer drill out there!

+ Case - 9/10 this is a very good tool bag for the basic kit, with interior pockets for the tools and battery charger. They're also several exterior pockets for drill bits and various small tools. One complaint, no pocket for the reciprocating saw. It fits but you have to lay it on top of the circular saw.

I have used the kit for the past 2 months and everything has worked to perfection. OK so 2 months is not much time but I have every confidence the kit will serve me well for years to come! My only real complaint is that as of this date the additional batteries are not readily available (you can get them online but you have to search)

In conclusion this is a great kit with each tool a best in class!
