The kit includes:

  • Variable two-speed 1/2-inch driver-drill (range of 0-450RPM and 0-1,500 RPM)
  • Variable-speed impact driver (range of 0-2,300 RPM and 0-3,200 IPM)
  • Four-position flashlight
  • Makita compact lithium-ion battery and Energy Star-rated rapid optimum charger

Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • Power – whether you drilling, driving, or fastening, you need strong, consistent power. This is delivered with the four-pole maximum torque motor made by Makita. The LXFD01CW can deliver 285 in. lbs. of PTI torque and 450 in. lbs. maximum torque, giving you 0-450RPM (low speed) and 0-1,500RPM (high speed). The impact driver delivers up to 1,280 in. lbs. of torque, revving up to 2,300RPM and 3,200RPM speeds.
  • Convenience – both of the tools are designed with ergonomic grips. This makes them a lot easier to hold as you are working and it reduces strain and fatigue on your hand. To illuminate the work area, they are also equipped with built-in LED lights and the kit comes with a rechargeable flashlight (Xenon bulb).
  • Low Downtime – you don’t want to waste hours charging and this combo kit gives you 2 18-volt lithium-ion batteries as well as a Rapid Optimum Charger for quick and efficient charging. These lithium-ion batteries are designed to last longer and with their quick charge feature you can stay on the job instead of waiting for them to charge.
  • Guarantee – you get a three-year warranty on both tools as well as a one-year warranty on the batteries, charger, and the flashlight.

Cons:

  • Battery – the batteries are designed to last for hours but you will notice that they do die out a bit more quickly when compared to traditional tools. This is expected given that these are quick-charge batteries however it would have been nice to see some extra battery life.

Verdict

If you are a DIY enthusiast or a professional handyman then you understand that convenience, power, and low-downtime is crucial for success. The Makita LCT300W 18-Volt Compact Lithium-Ion Cordless 3-Piece Combo Kit satisfies all three elements and it has a lot more to offer. It is a complete package that guarantees you won’t need another drill/impact driver for several years.
