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.
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.Read more ›

Great little impact driver. Case has room for the drill driver, which I do not own. Would have been happier with a smaller case for just the impact driver and charger.Published on December 2, 2013 by Bruce MacDermott
