MAKITA CONTINUES TO EXPAND 18V COMPACT LITHIUM-ION LINE-UP

New 18V Compact Driver-Drill and Impact Driver now available in combo kits

Pro contractors demanded more power and less weight from 18 volt tools.  So in 2006, Makita created the the 18V Compact Lithium-Ion category with the industry's first 18V Compact Driver-Drill (BDF452HW) and Impact Driver (BTD142HW). 

The 18V Compact Lithium-Ion battery reaches a full charge in only 15 minutes.

Today, Makita continues to innovate and expand the groundbreaking 18V Compact Lithium-Ion line-up with new tools and combo kits. 

Same Best-in-Class Performance
The latest additions include the new 18V Compact Driver-Drill (LXFD01CW) and new 18V Compact Impact Driver (LXDT04CW).
