This kit comes with some amazing tools! In this review we will focus on chronicling some of the industry best features from some of the best products provided in the kit. Here are some of the more important highlights…
The Makita 1/2″ Hammer Driver-Drill has a newly designed 4-pole motor to provide its user with 450 inches per pound of powerful torque performance while still weighing in under four pounds.
The Makita 6-1/2″ Circular Saw has a powerful high torque motor that delivers maximum power while cutting through twice as much material at 45°, when compared to the next best competitor. In addition, this tool also weighs in at a fairly light 6.9 pounds, helping you to be more nimble, agile, and efficient.
The Makita reciprocating saw was engineered with a design focused on efficiency, offering not only tool-less blade changes, but shoe adjustments as well.
The Makita Impact Driver is 40% more compact than the leading competitor’s Impact Drivers, but still delivers a strong right cross with 1,330 inches per pound of pure chiseled torque. Plus, the impact driver has a 0-3,200 IPM, with a total weight of 3.3 pounds.
The Makita 4-1/2″ Cordless Cut-Off/Angle Grinder provides you with a 10,000 RPM motor, which means grinding is 50% faster, ultimately cutting your “on-task” time in half.
But That’s Not All…
Also included is a 4-Position Flashlight with Xenon bulbs, which will run a little longer than 4 total hours. In addition, a LXT Lithium-Ion battery provides supreme run time, yet with a 5x lower self-discharge, all while still delivering on it’s promise of outputting a consistently high and constant rate of power due to the 16 firm holding contact terminals engineered into the device. Also, a 30-Minute Rapid Optimum “Smart” charger communicates with the LXT battery’s built-in chip while the battery is in the charging process. This ultimagely aids in optimize the battery life by actively controlling the current, voltage and temperature displacement. Finally, each tool includes a 3-year manufacturer warranty and the batteries carry a 1-year manufacturer warranty.
