Item #

The Makita XMT03Z 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless Multi-Tool (tool only) delivers speed that rivals corded models, without the cord. The XMT03Z boasts reduced vibration and lower noise for improved performance, and is ideal for cutting, sanding, scraping, grout removal, and more. It' powered by Makita's fast-charging 18V LXT® and Compact Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries (battery and charger sold separately). The XMT03Z delivers up to 20 minutes of run time with Makita' fast-charging 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion 3.0Ah battery (#55501, sold separately). For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita's Star Protection Computer Controls™ let the tool and Star Protection-equipped batteries exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating. Just use batteries with the star symbol indicating Star Protection inside. The variable speed control dial has a range of 6,000-20,000 OPM, enabling the user to match the speed to the application. The 3.2° oscillation angle is optimized for faster, more aggressive cutting and sanding. The XMT03Z has a small diameter barrel grip for improved handling, a large on/off slide switch with lock-on button, and includes adapters to fit most off-brand accessories.

does it have a light?

BEST ANSWER: No, it does not. Rather surprising since Makita has been putting lights on their drills for at least 8 years. I do like the tool, it has a good balance and low vibration.
My long-time, compact, Makita impact-driver uses 18v, 1.5 Ah, lithium-ion batteries. BL 1815 is printed along-side the voltage marking. Are these slide-in batteries appropriate for this multi-tool?
