The Makita designed and built WTo1W is the baby brother in the Makita cordless electric driver tool range. It is built to the same high quality standards that we have come to expect from Makita. The power source is a single 12 volt lithium-ion battery which is the best type of battery around currently. This battery can produce a torque of 74 foot-pounds in this product.

The General Consensus on the Makita WT01W
This product should be judge on its price range and class. It will not change the world and is not an all rounder for every day use. It will however be extremely reliable and get most jobs done with limited fuss or hassle. The 74 foot-pounds of torque is not massive but enough for most drilling and screwing jobs around the house the connection is a 3/4 inch male socket so will fit on to existing attachments.
If you are looking for a good all round tool that will be capable of delivering that little bit extra, the big brother is the one to go for. Makita’s BTW253 will deliver double the torque of the WT01W.
