Makita Cordless Tools
A variety of Cordless Power Tool Systems are available from Makita. Their system consists of these basic components: the main tool,e.g., a drill along with a pair of batteries and a charger generally make up the base system.
The most popular Makita cordless tools are the 12v, 14.4v, and 18v systems. The 7.2v and 9.6v are being phased out so it is best to avoid these as spare batteries and components may become harder to find. The 24v system is also being discontinued which is also going to limit availability.
The Makita cordless power tools you see listed below are all currently available from eBay and Amazon.
Just introduced, the Makita LXT line of cordless tools which uses the lithium ion technology is catching on with many casual users as well as the pros. This new system allows you to have 18v power with the weight of a 12v. The only downside is the cost. This system is slightly more expensive but, well worth it when taking into consideration the power to weight ratio.
