In 2004, Makita’s Assembly Division created brushless tools for use in the defense and aerospace industries. The Makita brushless motor was engineered for extended run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life -- ideal for use in precision assembly applications.
In 2009, Makita released the first 18V brushless impact driver for contractors. Equipped with three speed settings, the 18V LXT Brushless Impact Driver (BTD144) gave contractors unmatched precision, power and control for a full range of fastening applications.
Today, Makita has over 20 brushless tools, from drills and impacts to saws, rotary hammers, and string trimmers just to name a few – and more are on the way! Recent additions include:
