MAKITA CONTINUES TO EXPAND 18V COMPACT LITHIUM-ION LINE-UP

New 18V Compact Driver-Drill and Impact Driver now available in combo kits

The 18V Compact Lithium-Ion battery reaches a full charge in only 15 minutes.

Pro contractors demanded more power and less weight from 18 volt tools.  So in 2006, Makita created the the 18V Compact Lithium-Ion category with the industry's first 18V Compact Driver-Drill (BDF452HW) and Impact Driver (BTD142HW). 

Today, Makita continues to innovate and expand the groundbreaking 18V Compact Lithium-Ion line-up with new tools and combo kits.

"When Makita created the 18V Compact Lithium-Ion category, it sent shockwaves through the power tool industry," said Ethan Haughawout, Makita product manager, cordless tools. "No one had ever felt a tool that was so comfortable and lightweight, but with plenty of power for professional applications.
