Makita XWT02Z 18V LXT L 3-Speed Impact Wrench

Had a chance to try my new Christmas present and all I can say is Wow. delivers 210 ft.lbs. of Max Torque, weighs 3.8 pounds, brushless, and has 3 settings. It easily removed the lug nut and other suspension components on my F-150. The 3 speed setting works fantastic, when on low speed the control is amazing. It noise level is low and @ $170 us, (tool only) all I can say is thank you Santa.

That would probably lower a stabilizer in .45 seconds!

Rat a tat tat. You could set your stabilizers and move around the trailer so fast with that Makita that campers usually irked by what they consider offensive noises would be going inside to get their binoculars in a futile attempt to spot the Ivory billed woodpecker. When they got back outside you could be sipping a julep and saying " sorry he's gone".

NW Cat Owner, I think it would work great with your KoJacks on the low setting.
If you have any other makita tools with the 18 volt lithium batteries your set.
Just make sure to smear a little Permatex Anti-Seize Lubricant on your threads.
I just finished installing new bilstein 4600 HD shocks on my truck and this little makita made the job so much easier. Took off all 4 tires, suspension parts, and ran the spring compressors for the front macpherson struts on my f 150. Can hardly wait to do the wheel bearings on our new 2017 5.0TA when the time comes .
I will definitely feel better knowing this little gem is in the trucks tool box in case needed, bearings,brakes or just pulling a tire off.

I started out using my Makita 18V impact tool for the stabilizers but switched to the 18V drill because its a lot quieter. It's got enough umph in low gear. If I ever went back to the impactor I'd have to crank the stereo and start up the generator to keep the birders away

I would agree with you on that, the drill motor is plenty for the stabilizers. I have never used a jack for leveling, the Andersons have always worked good for us.

Agreed, my cordless drill easily turns the stabilizers.
