NEW MAKITA MULTI-TOOLS DELIVER POWER, ACCURACY AND VERSATILITY

18V LXT Lithium-Ion Multi-Tool and Corded Multi-Tool are ideal for a range of applications

The new 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Multi-Tool delivers corded power and speed wtihout the cord.

La Mirada, Calif. – Makita, a worldwide manufacturer of technologically advanced power tools that are more compact with less weight yet deliver industrial strength power and results, has released two new multi-tools: the new 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Multi-Tool Kit (model LXMT025), and the new Multi-Tool Kit (model TM3000CX5). Both tools are engineered for fast cutting, sanding, scraping and grout removal, and are ideal for a full range of trades. 
 
The cordless LXMT025 is the latest addition to Makita’s expanding 18V LXT line-up, with 50+ tools all powered by one 18V Lithium-Ion battery – with more tools on the way.
 
“Trades of all kinds are turning to oscillating multi-tools for a full range of applications,” said Joe Soto, Product Manager, Residential Construction.  “Makita has engineered power and performance features into both models, with additional features like reduced vibration and lower noise. With an 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless multi-tool, as well as a corded multi-tool, Makita has two best-in-class options for contractors.”
 
LXMT025: Corded Speed and Power without the Cord
The 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Multi-Tool (LXMT025) delivers up to 15 minutes of run time with Makita’s fast-charging 18V LXT Lithium-Ion battery. The variable speed control dial (6,000 – 20,000 OPM) and soft start feature enable the user to match the speed to the application with more control, and the 3.2 degree oscillation angle is engineered for faster, more aggressive cutting and sanding. The LXMT025 features an L.E.D. light to illuminate the work area, a small diameter barrel grip for improved handling, a large on/off slide switch with lock-on button, and a clamp system and adapter (included) to fit most competitive accessories. 
 
The new LXMT025 is powered by Makita’s 18V LXT Lithium-Ion battery and the ENERGY STAR® qualified Rapid Optimum Charger. Makita’s 18V Lithium-Ion battery delivers 3X more cycles, and the Rapid Optimum Charger will charge an 18V LXT Lithium-Ion battery in only 30 minutes for more work and less downtime. 
 
"As the market leader in 18 volt lithium-ion, it is only natural that Makita delivered a cordless oscillating multi-tool with the speed and performance of a corded multi-tool," said Ethan Haughawout, Product Manager, Cordless Tools.  "This new multi-tool is just one of more than 50 tools that are all powered by Makita LXT Lithium-Ion, the industry's first 18 volt lithium-ion battery."
 
The LXMT025 is a kit and includes two 18V LXT Lithium-Ion batteries and charger, as well as an assortment of 14 accessories for cutting and sanding. The LXMT02Z is available as a bare tool with the tool only, 1 plunge cut blade and 2 accessory adapters but without the batteries and charger.

 
New TM3000CX5 Delivers Lower Vibration and Lower Noise
The new TM3000CX5 is powered by a 3.0 AMP motor with soft start for smooth start-ups. The variable speed control dial (6,000 – 20,000 OPM) enables the user to match the speed to the application, and the electronic speed control maintains constant speed under load for smoother, higher-quality work. Similar to the 18V Lithium-Ion Multi-Tool, the new TM3000CX5 has a 3.2 degree oscillation angle engineered for faster, more aggressive cutting and sanding. The TM3000CX5 also features a range of comfort and convenience features including reduced vibration (6 m/s²) and lower noise (74dB), a small diameter barrel grip, a large on/off slide switch with lock-on button, and a clamp system and adapters (included) to fit most competitive accessories. 
 

 
Two Options for a Full Range of Applications
Both tools are engineered for a full range of applications including cutting, sanding, scraping, grout removal, and more. The LXMT025 and TM3000CX5 are ideal for remodelers, carpenters, electricians, plumbers, wood floor installers, and general contractors seeking a best-in-class multi-tool. Both tools will be available in May 2012.
