            Comments about 18V Cordless LXT Lithium-Ion 3/8 in. Impact Wrench:

            I use this impact driver in a New car Dealership every day I need equipment I can count on with top performance and ruggedness. I make my living with hand tools and they have to save me time and effort and last a long time.Sometimes when I push the button over to switch directions the trigger is difficult to press I have to press it again the detente is not tight enough the trigger must hit it inside of handle.I should send it out for repair but I be lost with out it.Charging the battery takes less then 15 minutes I haven't use the second battery yet its still wrapped up in the tool box.The light on this is a nice feature there is no need to grab another light source when working in dark tight areas.You have to be careful when tightening smaller bolts they will brake off the gun is powerful enough to do that.I compared this gun with Snap-on is much heaver and more expensive.

              Questions & Answers

               

              Warranty

              Warranty Information

              Makita Standard Warranty

              The Makita Standard Warranty applies to both new and factory-reconditioned Makita tools. Every Makita tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. If you are not satisfied with any Makita tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide a replacement or refund. Each Makita tool is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of ONE YEAR from the date of original purchase. Should any trouble develop during this one-year period, return the COMPLETE tool, freight prepaid, to one of Makita's Factory or Authorized Service Centers.

              If inspection shows the trouble is caused by defective workmanship or material, Makita will repair (or at its option, replace without charge).

              This Warranty does not apply where:
              • Repairs have been made or attempted by others
              • Repairs are required because of normal wear and tear
              • The tool has been abused, misused or improperly maintained
              • Alterations have been made to the tool
              In no event shall Makita be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages from the sale or use of the product. This disclaimer applies to both during and after the term of this warranty. Makita disclaims liability for any implied warranties, including implied warranties of "merchantability" and "fitness" for a specific purpose, after the one-year term of this warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
