The Makita 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 1/2-Inch Hammer Driver-Drill (model XPH012) delivers versatility and performance to the jobsite. The XPH012 can be run as a driver-drill or a hammer driver-drill, allowing the user to carry just one tool on the job instead of two, replacing the standard driver-drill. It's part of Makita's expanding 18V Lithium-Ion series, the world's largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.

The XPH012 features a Makita-built four-pole motor that delivers 480 in.lbs. of Max Torque in a compact size. The versatile XPH012 shifts from "hammer drill" to "driver" mode, and the two-speed all-metal transmission delivers 0-400 RPM in low speed and 0-1,500 RPM in high to cover a wide range of drilling and driving applications. With 0-6,000 Blows Per Minute (BPM) in low and 0-22,500 BPM in high, it is ideal for drilling into masonry and concrete.

The XPH012 weighs only 4.0 pounds (with battery) with a more compact design at only 8-1/8 inches long and an ergonomic shape that fits like a glove for reduced operator fatigue. The XPH012 Is also equipped with a built in LED light with afterglow function that illuminates the work area for more efficient work.
