TOOLMONGER PREVIEWS NEW 18V LXT LITHIUM-ION DRIVER-DRILL

Latest addition to 18V LXT line-up is noted for increased power and reduced weight

toolmonger.com previewed the new 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 1/2" Driver-Drill, model LXFD01. They noted the tool's increased power (480 in.lbs. of Max Torque) and more compact size (weighs only 3.8 lbs.).  They also remarked that other brands continue to move away from bigger, bulky tools and are focusing on more compact 18V tools.

Great point.  But Makita's been there since 2005!

Makita delivered the industry's first 18V Lithium-Ion line-up in 2005.  Today -- after almost 6 years on jobsites and in garages and workshops across America -- there are 40+ Makita 18V cordless tools powered by the same 18V Lithium-Ion battery.  And every tool in the 18V Lithium-Ion line-up is engineered with power-to-weight ratio in mind, delivering more power and performance in a compact size.
