Makita AD03Z 12V max CXT Lithium‑Ion Cordless Right Angle Drill

The Makita 12V max CXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless 3/8″ Right Angle Driver-Drill delivers power and speed in an ultra-compact size for efficient drilling, driving and fastening in tight spaces. The AD03 has a 3/8” keyed metal chuck for improved bit gripping power and a compact angle head height of only 2-1/2” for work in close quarters. With Makita 12V max CXT® Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries (batteries and chargers sold separately), users get superior balance and ergonomics over pod-style batteries. For added convenience, the batteries include an on-board L.E.D. charge level indicator.

The AD03 weighs only 2.6 lbs. (with 2.0Ah battery, sold separately), with variable speed (0-1,100 RPM) and up to 245 in.lbs. of Max Torque. Convenience features include an easy-to-operate paddle switch with variable speed control, and built-in L.E.D. light to illuminate the work surface. It’s an ideal solution for users seeking a more compact driver-drill with less weight and for applications in tight spaces.

For longer run time, 12V max CXT® cordless tools are also compatible with the 12V max CXT® Lithium-Ion 4.0Ah battery (BL1041B, sold separately). 12V max CXT® Lithium-Ion batteries are engineered with a Battery Protection Circuit that protects against overloading, over-discharging and over-heating. It’s part of the expanding 12V max CXT® series, combining performance with superior ergonomics in a compact size.
