Makita XDT19Z

Quick take

The Makita 18V LXT XDT19Z and Makita 40V XGT GDT01Z are both high-quality impact drivers with different performance characteristics. The XDT19Z is exceptionally fast and incredibly lightweight with a compact footprint. The GDT01Z is modestly bulkier throughout its footprint but pushes out far more torque. Its all-in costs are also sky-high when considering the higher cost of the bare tool and batteries. Both shine on the jobsite for different reasons, but we recommend the GDT01Z exclusively for professionals and the XDT19Z for professionals and homeowners.

The XDT19Z follows the familiar design language of Makita’s 18V XDT lineup, including a compact body with a slightly forward-leaning handle angle.

The impact driver also includes a belt hook, but there are few other bells and whistles, such as a bit holder or magnetic fastener holder. Several Ryobi impact drivers have these convenient features without requiring you to buy a third-party add-on that attaches to your impact driver to hold screws and/or bits.

The GDT01Z closely mirrors the design of Makita’s popular 18V LXT impact driver lineup, all of which have surprisingly compact footprints. But we don’t recommend buying the GDT01Z if a nimble impact driver is essential to you (more on that below).

The grip has good ergonomics for solid gripping power, and a large amount of the grip is covered in a rubber overgrip, improving shock absorption.

Otherwise, the GDT01Z includes a standard belt hook but not a bit holder or magnetic holder for fasteners, common features with several Ryobi impact drivers.

Weight

Makita XDT19Z On Scale

Bare weight (lbs): 1.88

Weight w/ 2.5Ah battery (lbs):  Not tested
Weight w/ 4Ah battery (lbs):  Not tested
Weight w/ 5Ah battery (lbs): 4.22

The XDT19Z is one of the lighter bare tools in the 18V XDT lineup, which is already light compared to many similar impact drivers that more commonly approach 2.25 lbs.

The working weight can differ significantly depending on the battery run in your setup. To keep it as lightweight as possible, we recommend combining the XDT19Z with Makita’s 18V LXT 2Ah battery for a good balance of performance and weight.

If weight is less of a concern, pair the XDT19Z with Makita’s 18V LXT 5Ah battery for a longer run time and improved driving performance.

The GDT01Z is heavy as a bare tool and with a battery. We don’t recommend this impact driver in any battery configuration if you’re seeking a lightweight tool. The bare tool footprint is relatively compact, but Makita’s 40V XGT batteries are incredibly bulky.

The 40V XGT 2.5Ah battery tips the scales at 1.52 lbs, compared to around 1.0 lb for most other brands’ comparable battery sizes.

To keep it as lightweight as possible, combine the GDT01Z with Makita’s 40V XGT 2.5Ah battery for a good balance of performance and weight.

Motor

Motor: Brushless
Impacts per minute: 3,800.0

The XDT19Z includes a brushless motor, which offers vast performance improvements over brushed motors. The brushless motor improves longevity and driving performance and increases battery run time.

The advertised impacts per minute are one feature that doesn’t jump off the specs sheet. However, this spec doesn’t tell the whole story. The XDT19Z shined in our driving tests, including its snappy speed when driving big bolts and other screws.

Motor

Motor: Brushless
Impacts per minute: 4,400.0

Brushless motors are table stakes nowadays due to their improved driving performance, battery efficiency, and longevity over brushed motors. The GDT01Z’s brushless motor should have excellent longevity (though we’ve not tested the shelf life). It is also one reason the battery run time is so long.

We anticipated the high advertised impacts per minute would crush our driving speed tests, but that didn’t play out in practice, with the GDT01Z finishing in the middle of the pack.

Drive modes

Makita XDT19Z Drive Modes

Drive modes: 8
Drive mode 1:  Max impact 
Drive mode 2:  Hard impact 
Drive mode 3:  Medium impact 
Drive mode 4:  Soft impact 
Variable speed trigger: Yes

Makita’s high-end impact drivers are packed with drive mode configurations that give you unmatched driving versatility, essentially giving you a single tool that handily tackles light and heavy-duty tasks. You can select from four impact-frequency settings, and there are also four assist modes for driving screws into different materials and for loosening bolts. The eight driving modes can also be programmed to the quick mode-switching button near the trigger for toggling to a saved favorite drive mode.

Drive modes we label as 1, 2, 3, and 4 advertise max impacts per minute of 3800.0, 3600.0, 2600.0, and 1100.0, respectively.

When pressing the assist button, you can select from the following drive modes:

  • Wood: Prevents a screw from stripping and helps set the screw into your work material by starting with a slow RPM and then increasing the RPM once the hammer begins impacting.
  • Bolt loosening: The tool automatically stops once a bolt is loosened in reverse mode. This action ensures that bolts don’t fall off. The trigger is also more sensitive, so the RPMs ramp faster with a shorter pull.
  • Self-tapping 1: Prevents screws from over-tightening by stopping the tool soon after impacts start.
  • Self-tapping 2: Prevents cam-out and stripping of screws by slowing the RPM when impacts begin.

The assist modes are more than a marketing gimmick and work well in practice. The wood assist mode finishes screws nicely into your work material, and the jolt of turbo is welcome for longer screws. Consider that you lose some precision driving the screw to a desired depth as the RPM ramps.

The self-tapping modes precisely drive screws into thin or thicker metal and lower-density materials without over-tightening.

One of the standout features of the GDT01Z is its wide array of drive mode settings that give you unmatched driving versatility.

You can select from four impact-frequency settings, and there are also six assist modes for driving screws into different materials and loosening bolts. The ten driving modes can also be programmed to the quick mode-switching button near the trigger for toggling to a saved favorite drive mode.

Drive modes we label as 1, 2, 3, and 4 advertise max impacts per minute of 4400.0, 3600.0, 2600.0, and 1100.0, respectively.

When pressing the assist button, you can select from the following drive modes:

  • Wood: Prevents a screw from stripping and helps set the screw into your work material at the beginning of driving by starting with a slow RPM and then increasing the RPM once the hammer begins impacting.
  • Self-tapping 1: Prevents screws from over-tightening by stopping the tool soon after impacts start.
  • Self-tapping 2: Prevents cam-out and stripping of screws by slowing the RPM when impacts begin.
  • Bolt 1: When in forward, the tool stops automatically once impacting. When in reverse, the impact force is setting 2.
  • Bolt 2: When in forward, the tool stops automatically once impacting for 0.3 seconds. When in reverse, the impact force is setting 4.
  • Bolt 3: When in forward, the tool stops automatically once impacting for 1.0 seconds.

The assist modes are more than a marketing gimmick and work well in practice. The wood assist mode finishes screws nicely and consistently into your work material, and the jolt of turbo is welcome for longer screws. Consider that you lose some precision driving the screw to a desired depth as the RPM ramps.

The Self-Tapping modes precisely drive screws into thin or thicker metal and lower-density materials without over-tightening.

The various bolt modes loosen bolts quickly and precisely, partly because the trigger is more sensitive and ramps to the highest RPM faster to bust bolts loose.

GRK total driving time forward (sec.): 13.7
GRK average driving time forward (sec.): 2.7
GRK total driving time reverse (sec.): 10.1

The combination of the XDT19Z’s torque, impacts per minute, and high RPM results in fantastic driving performance. We tested the driving speed using the highest-frequency impact setting and achieved speeds that were among the fastest we’ve come across.

The Milwaukee M18 Fuel 2953-20 and Dewalt 20V Max XR DCF845 are alternatives if you want to squeeze out slightly improved driving speed.

With the GDT01Z’s size and advertised specs, we anticipated it blowing away the competition in our driving speed tests. The GDT01Z drives big screws and lag bolts powerfully, but the driving speed performance was one of the most glaring letdowns in our testing. Frankly, the bar is high with the price tag, so anything below flagship performance is a letdown.

Kitting it out with a higher Ah battery will improve driving speed, but the gains are minimal and especially underwhelming considering the size, voltage, and premium price tag.

The Makita 18V LXT XDT19Z, Milwaukee M18 Fuel 2953-20, Ryobi 18V One+ PBLID02, and Dewalt 20V Max XR DCF845 are alternatives for faster driving performance.

The XDT19Z offers flagship-level driving speed with its high max RPM. But its torque profile is more subtle and doesn’t compete with the highest torque impact drivers we’ve tested, such as the Milwaukee M18 Fuel 2953-20.

The XDT14Z won’t perform as well in demanding torque applications, including busting loose stubborn bolts, as it will driving screws quickly, which it excels at

One critical letdown of the GDT01Z is the torque output. While we were able to generate high levels of torque output with the GDT01Z, the bar is set much higher when considering the power potential inherent to a 40V platform and the sky-high price tag.

Consider the Milwaukee M18 Fuel 2953-20 and Dewalt 20V Max XR DCF887 for models with better torque output.

Battery run time

Power type: Cordless
Battery run time (min.): 48.0
Battery tested: 18V LXT 2Ah (BL1820B)
Voltage: 18

Makita’s 18V XDT lineup has outstanding battery run time performance, which holds with the XDT19Z. While the run time falls slightly behind the Makita 18V LXT XDT14Z and Makita 18V LXT XDT13Z, the no-load battery run time is still among the best we’ve tested.

We tested battery run time with the 2Ah battery version. We expect the battery run time to perform similarly well when running the XDT19Z with an 18V LXT 5Ah battery and comparing it with 5Ah setups from other brands.

The GDT01Z shines regarding battery run time performance, topping the ranks in our Summer 2023 test batch. We tested the GDT01Z with a 2.5Ah battery, whereas other models tested used a 2Ah version. So, battery run time is understandably better since the test isn’t 100% apples to apples.

But consider that the GDT01Z has outstanding efficiency with a higher run time per Ah than other models tested. Accordingly, if Makita offered a 40V 2Ah XGT battery, we’d anticipate it outperforming setups running the same Ah battery.

We expect the battery run time to perform similarly well when running the GDT01Z with a 40V XGT 5Ah battery compared to other setups running the same Ah battery.

Battery lineup

Makita 18V LXT Battery Lineup

Makita offers 2Ah, 3Ah, 4Ah, 5Ah, and 6Ah batteries in its 18V LXT lineup. Upgrading to the higher Ah options increases battery run time and improves driving performance, though we’ve not tested all of these batteries to understand the cost tradeoffs.

Having at least two batteries in your setup is best so you don’t miss a beat when draining one battery. We recommend buying a Makita 18V LXT 2Ah and a Makita 18V LXT 5Ah battery for most LXT impact driver setups for a good balance of performance, price, and size.

Makita’s standard chargers only charge a single battery voltage. You’ll need a dedicated charger for your 12V, 18V, and 40V Makita tools. Many Milwaukee impact drivers come in kits with a hybrid 12V and 18V charger in one, which conveniently saves space in your shop if you have multiple tools in the ecosystem.

Battery lineup

Makita 40V XGT 2.5Ah Battery

Makita offers 2.5Ah, 4Ah, 5Ah, and 8Ah batteries in its 40V XGT lineup. Upgrading to the higher Ah options increase battery run time and improves driving performance, though we’ve not tested all of these batteries to understand the cost tradeoffs. The higher Ah batteries are also excessively bulky and heavy, fit mostly for construction tasks and trades workers.

Having at least two batteries in your setup is best so you don’t miss a beat when draining one battery. We recommend buying two Makita 40V XGT 2.5Ah batteries for most 40V XGT impact driver setups for a good balance of performance, price, and size.

Max RPM drive mode 3 (rev.): 1,848.0
Max RPM drive mode 4 (rev.): 1,022.0

The XDT19Z has a comparatively high max RPM, great for driving screws rapidly. Other impact drivers with high RPM readings can suffer from frequent cam-out and stripped screws, but the XDT19Z’s array of drive modes fixes this potential issue.

While we didn’t test the RPM for the bolt loosening assist setting, the trigger is noticeably more sensitive in reverse when using this drive mode, resulting in the RPM ramping quicker with a shorter trigger pull than other drive modes.

Driving clearance

Min. interior width clearance (in.): 7.375
Min. top edge clearance (in.): 1.000
Min. interior 45-deg. clearance (in.): 5.750

The XDT19Z has a short length from the collet to the back, squeezing well into small openings and tight corners. The XDT19Z is one of the few models we’ve tested that broke the 6-inch threshold in our interior 45-degree driving clearance test.

We don’t recommend the GDT01Z if you consistently drive fasteners in spaces requiring a lot of height clearance. A sub-compact or compact footprint can squeeze into these tighter spaces, especially if they have a shorter height.

However, it has solid clearances in our 45-degree driving test, thanks to its short collet-to-back length, surprising for such a bulky setup with the battery.
