Founded in 1915, Makita Corporation started off as an electric motor sales and repair company before entering the power tool industry with a portable electric planer in 1958. Continuing their research and development in power tools, Makita introduced its first cordless drill in 1978. Their extensive research paid off when they achieved an increase in power and run time, faster charging time and longer tool life – attributes that would become hallmarks of Makita power tools.
With those features in mind, Makita developed the LXT Advantage – their most advanced and durable product line in the market. This one system is the world’s largest compatible lithium-ion system and capable of powering Makita’s Sub-Compact and X2 series. The LXT lithium-ion battery delivers constant power and up to 50% longer run time even in extreme temperatures for tools like drills, saws, grinders and combo kits.
