Makita 18V LXTThe new LXPH03 delivers 750 in.lbs. of Max Torque and 18% more speed, yet it is more compact and weighs less than the previous model. The new LXPH03 is part of Makita’s 18V cordless series, with 50+ cordless tools powered by one fast-charging 18V Lithium-Ion battery.

“Makita continues to be the market leader in 18 volt Lithium-Ion, and the new LXPH03 changes the game in the cordless drill category,” said Mario Lopez, Makita Product Manager, Cordless Tools. “The new LXPH03 has the torque and speed that contractors demand. We also know that contractors often go to work in harsh conditions and the new LXPH03 is engineered for increased resistance to water and dust. For drilling and driving, Makita has delivered a total solution.”

The new LXPH03 is engineered with a Makita-built 4-pole motor that delivers an industry-leading 750 in.lbs. of Max Torque. It’s also faster than the previous model with up to 30,000 BPM and 2,000 RPM. The new all-metal planetary gear system is more efficient so the LXPH03 is also more compact at only 8-7/8” long and 5.1 lbs. with battery.
