MAKITA TOOLS- Don't miss out on these top performers.
Makita Corporation was founded in 1915 as an electric motor sales and repair company. In 1958, Makita released their first power tool, a portable electric planer. A Makita electric circular saw and electric drill soon followed in 1962.
After 10 years of design and testing to ensure quality, Makita introduced its first 7.2V Cordless Drill in 1978. In 2004, they developed brushless motor fastening tools for the defense and aerospace industries and later extended this efficient technology to contractors in 2009 with the industry’s first 18V brushless motor impact driver. Makita created the 18V Lithium-Ion category in 2005, and today offers the world’s largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18V slide-style battery.
