Maximum Performance. No Cords Needed.
Makita was the first to introduce 18V Lithium-Ion cordless tools. Makita’s LXT® System is the world’s largest and has over 200 solutions. From the reduced size and weight of Sub-Compact, to Premium Tools specifically designed for the most demanding applications, professional users can find the right solution for any job. Makita’s new Brushless X2 tools are powered by two 18V LXT® batteries for maximum power, speed and run-time. The LXT® Advantage technology is at work across the system so you’ll get longer motor life, efficient power management and the industry’s fastest-charging times – all in One System using the same batteries and chargers.
A New Class in Cordless
Makita created a new class in cordless with 18V LXT® Sub-Compact Brushless tools. Makita Sub-Compact tools are the most compact and lightest weight in the 18V category, so users get 12V handling with 18V compatibility. Sub-Compact tools use the same 18V batteries and chargers that work with over 200 solutions in the LXT system. We've engineered LXT Sub-Compact tools to be smaller and lighter than our premium tools for jobs that require quick and efficient tools. Our Sub-Compact line includes the most compact and lightweight reciprocal saw, rotary hammer, drill and impact driver in the 18V lithium-ion cordless tool category.
