From the world's first cordless drill in 1969 to the world's first 18V lithium-ion battery-powered tools in 2005, Makita has been the worldwide leader in cordless power tool innovation. Makita's LXT Cordless System takes you from power tools to outdoor power equipment to get the job done. Utilizing 18V lithium-ion batteries, the LXT battery system works with 225+ cordless products (as of 2020) making it the worlds largest compatible lithium ion system.
The Makita 18v Li-ion range has set the industry standard for performance and rugged reliability in the toughest site operations and a complimentary range of equally robust yet more compact-size tools are in demand. These are ideal for such tasks as kitchen and bathroom installations and other projects where access is limited. The exceptional running time provided by these Makita 10.8v tools is longer than similar voltage Ni-Cad or Ni-MH batteries and with a swift 50-minute recharge time these cells provide power and extended operation.
