MAKITA CONTINUES TO EXPAND 18V CORDLESS LINE-UP

Recent 18V additions now available in select combo kits

Pro contractors demanded more power and less weight from cordless power tools. So in 2005 Makita created the industry’s first 18V Lithium-Ion line-up with the 18V LXT Series. Makita 18V LXT delivers more power and less weight in a more compact size, with a fast-charging 18V battery that reaches a full charge in only 30 minutes on the ENERGY STAR® qualified battery charger.
 
Contractors then demanded more compact tools with an even faster charge time, so in 2006 Makita created the industry’s first 18V Compact Lithium-Ion battery for a select group of new 18V compact cordless tools. Makita 18V Compact tools are distinguished by their black and white color and the compact battery’s fast charge time (only 15 minutes). Owners of 18V Compact tools have the option to run the full size 18V LXT battery on their 18V Compact tools for longer run time.
 
50+ Tools, with More on the Way
Today the Makita offers over 50 cordless tools powered by a fast-charging 18V Lithium-Ion battery, and more tools are on the way. Makita continues to innovate and expand its groundbreaking cordless line-up with new tools and combo kits.
