The demanding applications you take on every day are also demanding on your cordless tools and batteries. You rely on your tools, so Makita created Star Protection Computer Controls™. Star Protection is communication technology that allows the tool and battery to monitor conditions and exchange data in real time to protect against overload, over-discharge, and overheating.LEARN MORE
The Makita Rapid Optimum Charger communicates with the battery’s built-in chip throughout the charging process to optimize battery life by actively controlling current, voltage and temperature. Built-in fan circulates air through the battery during the charging process to cool the battery for faster charge time.LEARN MORE
Makita has a legacy of electric motor engineering that spans over 100 years since the founding of the company in 1915. This engineering legacy includes leading innovation in brushless motors, which began in 2003 when Makita created brushless motor fastening tools for exclusive use in the defense and aerospace industries.
Today Makita has more purpose-built brushless motors, including an outer-rotor brushless motor with direct-drive system (left) that delivers the highest operating efficiency for more power, more speed and longer run time. The outer rotor brushless motor can be found inside select cordless power equipment including chain saws and string trimmers. Note the difference in size compared to the 52mm brushless motor (right) used in select Makita cordless blowers and string trimmers as well as recipro saws, grinders, and circular saws.
More purpose-built brushless motors means the right brushless motor for the right solution. Users benefit with powerful and consistent performance, better balance, and superior ergonomics.LEARN MORE
