Makita announced the introduction of its highest power cordless solutions yet: XGT 40V Max. The XGT range of machines includes combi drills, grinders, rotary hammers, impact drivers, circular saws and reciprocating saws. XGT is the most powerful battery platform in the Makita range featuring increased output for higher demand applications. Plus there is a completely new design across the machines, the batteries and charging system. To protect the battery if dropped there is a heavy-duty outer casing and cell holder and a shock absorbing housing.
Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita, said: “With XGT, you can experience the same high power associated with corded and petrol machines, but with the increased flexibility of cordless – making XGT the ideal solution for high demand, industrial applications. The complete solution of our existing LXT 18V system and the new XGT 40V platform offers even more battery-powered solutions for a truly cordless job site.”
