Makita LXT Power Tools - Are They Great?
Posted by Neil Bruce - March 02, 2010
The Makita 18 volt lithium ion range of power tools has grown over the last few years to contain 34 different tools. This doen't include the packaged kits or the different variations of particular tools.
The range includes combi drills, drill drivers, rotary hammers, impact drivers, angle drills, impact wrenches, grinders, screwdrivers, circular saws, jigsaws, bandsaws, shears, staplers, reciprocating saws, vibrating pokers, chainsaws, blowers, vacuum cleaners and more.
This kit is flying out the door at Toolstop, we literally cannot keep up with the demand and Makita are also struggling to fulfill the demand.
Why is it that these tools have taken the cordless power tool market by storm?
It's true that Makita is a well established manufacturer and their products have a reputation for being professional and high quality so this may be what has swayed people towards this range.
It could be the vastness of the range of tools. There's virtually a tool for any cordless application you could think of. And once you've bought your 1st kit the batteries and charger are interchangeable so naked tools are all you'll need.
Or it might be that they come in great package deals such as the 6 tool LXT600 or the 6 tool DK1829 or the 4 tool LXT400. These are great kits to get anyone started and as you know can be added to at any time with naked tools.
Whatever the reason for the popularity of the Makita LXT power tools, we'd like to hear from you about why you chose this range, what you do for a living and what projects you're using the tools on. We'd also like to know how happy you are with them and if there are any other tools you'd like to see added to the range.
