I got this today and did a few tests.

First I drove a number of 1/4" X 6" lag screws into treated 2x6 lumber. The long way. No pilot holes. They drove right in. The drill slowed down a little for the last inch but they still went in very fast. I was impressed.

Then I decided to see if this came even close to the advertised 1,330 in/lbs of torque. Which is about 110 ft/lbs if you want to do the math. So I chucked in a 1/2" socket adapter with a 19mm impact socket, walked out to my car, and it proceeded to RIP all 5 lug nuts off the wheel. And when I say rip I am not kidding. It wasn't like the tool bogged down and then slowly got faster. I squeezed the trigger and they just came off. My wife cannot understand why I am still smiling from ear to ear 30 minutes later.

This is a 10 year old car with rusty lug nuts that I personally hand torqued to 100 ft/lbs only a few weeks ago when I was rotating the tires. Since they had been sitting it will take way more than 100 ft/lbs to get them off.

I own expensive air tools that cannot pull lug nuts that fast.

If you want torque that will make the hair stand up on the back of your neck, get this tool -- it is the real deal. I haven't done enough tests to validate the claims about the battery but knowing Makita and everything I've read I'm sure that the LXT batteries will live up to the hype.

I am against gimmiky items on tools, but the LED light is actually useful in the dark. And with they way they have the light recessed in a plastic case you won't need to worry about it breaking when you drop this tool off a ladder.

The form and fit of this in your hand is just great. This is one of the greatest Makita power tools I have ever owned, and I've had a lot of thier good ones over the years. Makita has outdone themselves again.

The BTD141 is a 2008 update/improved version of the BTD140. Not much difference but some improved internal parts (slightly higher max torque), slightly different appearance (mainly the plastic gearbox shroud), and a different chuck. This chuck allows you to push in a hex bit without pulling out the sleeve.

A week after I bought this, Makita releases the evolutionary Makita BTD144 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Impact Driver with brushless motor on the US market. There is a reason why the BTD144 is the first tool in the Makita line-up to get the brushless technology: Impact drivers are known for their torque but not for their finesse. With the digital electronic control that brushless motors allow, you can have buttons that reduce the speed and torque instead of having to feather the trigger pressure(like you have to do on the BTD141). Even though it is $100 more than the BTD141, I would have probably sprung for the BTD144.

Regardless, the BTD141 has loads of potential torque and if you are not careful/skilled you can torque fasteners way beyond where they should be. I needed some practice with the trigger and doing short bursts to make a 3" screw flush with a wood surface. Getting the right pressure on the trigger as you are driving a screw does not come naturally, especially if you've only used a drill as a driver.

The ergonomics on this, as with all Makita LXT tools, is superb. Very comfortable and balanced with "grippy" molded rubber in all the right places.

It is loud, but it's supposed to be loud; it's an IMPACT driver.

You can use this driver with the smaller 1.5 amp Makita batteries without making any modifications.

OK, guys.. you've found it. Get this one. This Makita impact driver is simply the best drill/driver that I have ever had or seen. The battery lasts FOREVER, the size is the smallest I've been able to find with 18 volts. Get yourself some quick change Phillips & Square head drivers and you are set to go. This thing is light, compact and powerful. Trigger speed sensitive, automatic light on the front, belt clip it great. it's a dream.

A great all around tool. It's nice to be able to change from a drill bit to a screw driver one handed. As a driver it makes easy work of driving 3-1/2" screws into 2x4's. It's lightweight but powerfull enough to get any job done. Another nice feature is that the batteries last longer than most other cordless drills and it charges quicker too.

After leaving my DeWalt 14.4 XRP at a customers house during the holidays, I was "forced" to purchase a new cordless to handle other projects until the customer got back from their ski trip. I knew I wanted to make the transition to Lithium-Ion, but wasn't sure what else was out there to compete with my DeWalt. After much research, I picked up the Makita BTD 141 and a 1/2" Hammerdrill for $299.00 with 2 3.0 Ah batteries and charger from Home Depot. Today was the first day on the job. The first thing that struck me was the weight. To be so light and to have so much power was impressive. I was patching some drywall in a closet that had water damage. This was going to be a good test. Alot of power is no good to me if I can't ratchet it down to install drywall. It does me no good to be burying drywall screws. I screwed in 2 x 4 blocking into 30 year old framing which would have required predrilling and a lot of muscle to get the screws in with the XRP. I was sinking 3" wood screws with very little effort into old wood. Unheard of before. You don't need leverage to get the screws in. Just pull the trigger and hang on!! I went overkill on the 3" screws just to see how easy they were to sink in at different positions. I sank several screws overhead where I could just barely reach. No problem with this badboy. The light came in handy. The XRP has a light that only comes on when you're pulling the trigger. This light stays on for about 10 seconds after you pull the trigger...a nice feature. I've heard complaints about the reverse switch being so close to the trigger. By the end of the day, this was a non-issue. I actually like having the switch so close. You can change directions with one hand...another nice feature. The drywall went on without a hitch.Read more ›
