Tool Hound Video Review: Makita BTD144 Impact Driver

New adjustable speed setting on Makita's BTD144 cordless impact driver offers better control when driving screws

Length: 1:37
Produced By: John Ross

The BTD144 is an 18v Li-ion-powered impact driver that looks similar to the drivers in Makita’s existing lineup. Lightweight and compact, the driver delivers an arm-twisting 1420 in.-lb. of torque, and features a belt hook and an LED light. What's most notable is the addition of an adjustable speed setting that lets the user choose from three settings that control the rotations and hammering of the bit so it can be custom matched to the task.
