Should have purchased a impact screwdriver years ago, three inch screws go in at a breeze. As for the makita, really sweet sounding motor with typical makita quality. You can’t go wrong with this purchase, and the seller (power tools pro)sent it next day delivery absolutely free.
The pa18 18v ni-cad batteries fit. Great addition to my makita collection. Buy some good quality impact bits to go with it i bought wera impact bits otherwise cheap ones fall to bits.
Fantastic impact driver perfect for diy around the house.
But if you have older nicad batteries lying around. Please note this goes through nicad 1. 3ah batteries very quick nimh with a higher capacity maybe better. If you have more then one battery pack then just keep alternating. As with all impact drivers it’s very loud.

I have owned this impact for 4 years and it is a great tool. Total reliability and power to spare, 4 inch screws straight into hardwood conservatory, no pilot holes no messin. Only drawbacks are the weight and prolonged use can be quite tiring. All in all an excellent tool for tonkin big screws.
18v older impact drill, uses the battery within a few hours of heavy use but having a 2nd battery that charges faster, thats not a problem. The lithium newer version lasts longer, but doesn’t pack any bigger a punch than this one. We’re restoring a hotel and my workmate has the newer so have tried both. I prefer this impact driver and so does some of the other lads.
Received the goods today, waiting on my desk in the office and delivered earlier than they saidbought this as i already have an 18v combi drill so didn’t need batteries and charger. Used makita kit ever since the old 9. 6v stuff i first bought about 20 odd years ago and still have them today (and still working). They do need some new batteries now and will buy some when i find them at the right pricewell packaged in a big ball of bubble wrapi would use this supplier again due to fast delivery and good pricing. Not tried the impact driver yet but have no doubt that it will be as good as the other reviews say and will probably be still using this in many years time due to the usual makita build quality. Not many tool manufacturers have made tools this good for so longi have tried dewalt, bosch and ryobi in the past but always end up back with makita. You can’t go wrong investing in these tools.
Such a time saving tool, not a day goes by that i don’t use this tool now i have it, delivery was quick, and overall satisfied with tool and supplier.
