Makita LCT 209 Combo Kit:

Does size really matter? It does when you’re using a cordless drill or driver all day or when you find yourself working over your head or in tight spaces, like building or installing kitchen cabinets.

Makita recently introduced its 12 volt,LCT 209 12volt Combo Kitthat includes the 3/8” Drill (model #FD02), the ¼” Impact Driver (model #DT01) and the battery charger (model #DC10WB) and what a combination it is. A versatile, light weight, well balanced combination that has plenty of power to tackle most applications.

I’ve used this combo kit extensively for the last few months and I’ve yet to come to a situation that either one of these tools wasn’t capable of handling. From building and installing cabinets to renovation framing, this combo kit has been able to handle it all.

The power to weight ratio of this combo is typical of what you would find in a Makita cordless tool, plenty of power in a well balance tool that’s a pleasure to use all day.  Is this combo kit the answer to “all” cordless drill/driver applications, no……………..no one cordless tool will satisfy every application but this combo kit has exceeded my expatiations for a 12volt combo kit. The combo kit’s battery charger charges a completely dead battery to fully charged in 30 minutes and the drill and driver both have an onboard LED light that is a lot more handy than you would think it is.

Below you’ll find a short video of the combo kit in action.  Driving a 2 ½” long # 8 deck screw into a piece of 2” x 3 ½” Beech without a pilot hole. First the impact driver drives this 2 1/2″ screw and then the drill drives the same size screw into this slab of Beech. After that, I chucked a (somewhat dull) 3/8” brad point drill bit into the drill and bore a hole through the Beech, all with no effort.

The ease at which this combo kit handles these tasks and so much more is what still has be reaching for these tools every time I need a cordless drill or driver.

 The comfortable fit.

The vibration absorbing rubberized grip on the varible 2 speed drill and varible speed impact driver not only makes these tools easy to hold onto when your hands are covered in sawdust, the abundance of rubber adds a measure of protection when placing the tools on an easily scratched surface.

The combo kit even comes with a holster that makes carrying either the drill or the impact driver up a ladder or onto the jobsite, both easy and safe.
