Earlier in the season I noticed a new Makita 18V brushless power tool combo kit special buy, XT284SX1, that bundled an impact driver with a 1/2″ impact wrench. The special buy price was $179. I just checked on Amazon, and the price dropped to $149.
With this kit, you get a Makita brushless impact driver, 1/2″ impact wrench, (2) 3.0Ah batteries, standard charger, and tool bag.
But wait – the impact driver has model number XWT13Z.
This is actually Makita’s sub-compact 18V impact wrench, but in Makita-teal color scheme!
OH! That makes this deal even better!
Okay, so that’s $179 minus $25 – $154. For the bare tool!!
With this kit, you get a whole lot more than just the bare tool, you get batteries, a charger, tool bag, and an impact driver.
Right now on Amazon they have this special bundle for $149, and they say only 1 is left in stock with “more on the way.”
This is an unbeatably good price. Sure, the impact driver is their value-focused model, which is typically $99 for the tool, charger, single battery, and tool bag. So with this deal, for $50 more you get an impact wrench that retails for at least $100 more than that, plus another LXT battery.
Makita’s really making this year’s holiday shopping season quite interesting. Right now, all other dealers have this combo for $179 (if at all). Amazon is the only one with $149 pricing.
Would you agree that this is a fantastic deal?
Update: Home Depot has matched the $149 price, besting their “Pro Black Friday 2019” deal.
