Makita DTW281Z 18V Li-Ion LXT Brushless Cordless Impact Wrench - Bare is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Haven't used a better wrench" I used the older version of this gun for some time dismantling factory conveyors also left it out the rain and still worked. I have used the dewalt and bosch version of this wrench the makita is still the best performing gun aspecialy with the new extra setting and being able to turn the light on and off manually. Fantastic little wrench 10/10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good price for a good product. My old BTW251 started to exhibit an intermittent fault so I decided to get the newer brushless version. The sockets sit somewhat tighter on the anvil than the 251. I like the battery gauge, it will show 3 bars if the battery is above 50%, 2 bars 20-50% and 1 bar below 20%. It has 3 power modes, handy if you want to use it with a 1/4" adaptor for screwdriving without breaking the bits. It is rated for 20mm bolts, the BTW251 is only rated for 16mm bolts. Oh, and it's made in the UK. It was actually cheaper than some other stores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makita Quality As with all Makita tools this is not cheap but you get what you pay for. Well made and easy to use and of course you can use your existing batteries with this and save some money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impact Good handy drill that's useful for everything in the building trade. I'd recommend to anyone as long as you've got the batteries as its a good price for the bare unit.
