Automatic Speed Change technology adjusts speed and torque during operation for optimum performance. The BL Brushless Motor eliminates carbon brushes, enabling the BL Motor to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life. Efficient BL Brushless motor is electronically controlled to optimize battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per charge. The electronically-controlled BL Brushless Motor efficiently uses energy to match torque and RPM to the changing demands of the application. Compact and ergonomic design at only 14-1/4" long. Weighs only 5.5 lbs. with battery for reduced operator fatigue. Rubberized soft grip provides increased comfort on the job. 3-stage L.E.D. gauge indicates battery charge level. Slide switch with lock-on for operator convenience. Soft start suppresses start-up reaction for smooth start-ups and longer gear life. Spiral bevel gears for smoother rotations and a more efficient transfer of energy. Anti-restart protection engineered to prevent motor start up when battery is inserted with switch locked on. Efficient internal cooling is engineered for optimum performance. Wire mesh intake covers are engineered to prevent debris from entering motor. Extreme Protection Technology (XPT) is engineered for improved dust and water resistance for operation in harsh conditions. 18V LXT Lithium-Ion 4.0 Ah battery BL1840 provides up to 35% more run time per charge (compared to BL1830). 18V LXT Lithium-Ion 4.0 Ah battery BL1840 reaches a full charge in 40 minutes or less. Equipped with Star Protection Computer Controls to protect against overloading, over-discharging and over-heating. Rapid Optimum Charger communicates with the battery's built-in chip throughout the charging process to optimize battery life by actively controlling current, voltage and temperature. Rapid Optimum Charger has a built-in fan to cool the battery for faster, more efficient charging. Makita technology delivers category-leading charge time so the battery spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger. The 18V LXT 4.0Ah battery (BL1840) is compatible only with Star Protection tools, indicated by the Star Symbol and/or Yellow Battery Receiver under the tool. 3-year warranty on tool 1-year warranty on battery. Only use genuine Makita batteries and chargers.
