One of the best tools to appear on the market for some time is the Makita BTP140. Even though it's small in size, this drill packs 4 tools in 1 which means you will have a smaller number to carry around while you're working. The tool has 4 modes: impact, hammer drill, driver, and regular drill, so it will help with almost any request you need.

This Makita BTP140 contains a 4-pole motor that packs up to 1,240 in. lbs. of maximum torque. Considering the compact size that this drill truly is, that's a huge amount of power. You are also working with 16 seperate clutch options and 2 individual speed selections (0-700 RPM and 0-2,300 RPM)

When you want to drill into masonry or concrete, you will be getting an intense0-27,600 BPM (blows per minute). When you want to do a simple fastening job, you can quickly switch to the impact mode that delivers 0-3,200 impacts per minute (IPM).

Similar to practically all the new Makita tools, the Makita BTP140 contains the innovative new LXT Lithium-Ion technology. These 18-Volt batteries are lighter in weight, run for a longer period of time, and have a quicker recharge timethan the usual batteries you see in many other drills. There's also a built-in shock absorber to stop the battery from being damaged

The Optimum Charger lets a memory chip in the battery converse with a CPU chip in the charger to pack the most effective charge available and make the life of the batteries increase. On average, these new Li-Ion batteries last 2.5 times longer than a standard battery.

Most think that because of the sheer power and features the Makita BTP140 provides, it'd be a heavy drill. Surprisingly, though, it is very compact and has a weight of only 3.9 pounds and is only 7-3/8 inches long. Comfort is very important while you're working, and the ergonomic design with the BTP140 let it fit very comfortably in the hand and lessen the opportunity for soreness.


Another two extremely helpful features of this drill are the built-in L.E.D. light and the phosphorescent bumper ring. The light helps you see in tight, dimly-lit areas, and the bumper ring has a glow-in-the-dark aspect so you won't be forced to be concerned about misplacing your drill if you cannot see it.

As you can notice, the Makita BTP140 is truly an awesome tool to work with. It is 4 tools combined into 1 which implies you do not have to lug as much around at work, it offers a lot of power but is still compact in size, and the Lithium-Ion technology of the batteries is unprecedented by any other drills on the market. I highly suggest checking the BTP140 out.
