Makita’s definitely made a move in the right (price) direction in releasing a four-piece grouping of their new 18V LXT Li-Ion-powered cordless tools for a street price of around $600. The kit includes:
- the 1/2″ LXT Hammer Driver-Drill
- the 1/2″ LXT Impact Driver
- the 6-1/2″ LXT Circular Saw
- and the LXT Flashlight
You also get two LXT Li-Ion 3.0 Ah batteries, a 45-minute charger, and a “contractor bag” to carry the tools in.
Add to this the fact that Makita’s currently offering to throw in an 18V LXT Reciprocating Saw by mail if you buy before June 28. This is one heck of a great way to join the Li-Ion revolution.
