WOOD magazine review

This switchable driver does it all

Review Summary

Makita’s revolutionary BTP140 makes your other drills obsolete. It drills and drives, of course, but with a flick of a switch, it becomes an impact driver providing an impressive 1,240 inch-pounds of torque. Throw the switch again, and it becomes a hammer drill for boring holes into concrete. You won’t even miss your corded drill: 18-volt lithium-ion batteries provide plenty of power and run time while keeping the tool’s weight down to a svelte 3.9 lbs.
When the batteries do run dry, it takes just 15 minutes to top off the spent cells.
