Makita X2 18V 36V DDA460 Right Angle Drill – New Stud & Joist Drill

Makita’s been pretty busy bringing us 36 volt tools to 18V users through their constant new tool releases of X2 tools that use two 18V batteries to pump out 36 volts. One of those newest X2 tools is an all new Makita X2 18V 36V DDA460 Right Angle Drill but it’s not an ordinary right angle drill, this is a monster stud & joist drill similar to what a Milwaukee Hole Hawg is.

It’s packing a brushless motor so you know this thing will bring the power along with runtime efficiency. It’s rated to drill into wood up to 118mm sized holes which is 4.6 inch when translated and up to 13mm holes in steel which is a half inch. This tells us this thing has huevos. Talking about it’s runtime efficiency, it’s rated to be able to drill up to 88 holes with a 65mm self feed bit (2-9/16″) and running on a pair of 5.0ah batteries.

Onboard features include dual LED lights with afterglow, 2 speed transmission, and electric brake. Pretty much standard on any stud and joist drill is a beefy 1/2″ keyed chuck for superior grip and nice to see a large D-style handle on the head of the tool and they also offer a sturdy side handle and it appears to be able to use in left and right hand positions. It’s hard to see from the pictures but it appears they are using their annoying power button, ugh!

A big thanks to Cody Robertson for spotting this and it appears it was spotted outside of the USA since all specs are in metric. No word on when or if we’ll receive this new tool in the USA but Makita is pretty good at bringing overseas tools here in the USA although it might get a new model number for USA only.
