Makita, a worldwide manufacturer of industrial strength power tools, has recently released two new multi-tools in an attempt to join the recent trend of tool providers. Since the multi-tool has begun trending, numerous tool makers have focused on developing and innovating high-performance multi-tools at an affordable price.
Makita has announced that there will be two multi-tool models, a Lithium-Ion cordless tool (LXMT025 and LXMT02Z) and a corded 3.0 amp tool (TM3000CX5).
The cordless model will provide the longest lasting battery life to date, with up to 15 minutes of run time using an 18V LXT Lithium-Ion battery.
Unlike many other multi-tools on the market, Makita has expanded the oscillation range to an additional 0.2 degrees. The additional cutting range provides an even greater cutting area, providing Do It Yourself-ers more efficiency and creating more value per cut.
In addition, a great feature that has been implemented is the soft-start feature, which enables a longer-lasting motor. Instead of starting your tool at full speed, it gradually increases to maximum power all while having no effect on your tool’s performance.
Within the starter kits Makita is including 14 accessories, which highlight two adapters (318248-8 and 313249-6) that will allow for Imperial Blades, Fein, Rockwell, Rigid, Dremel, and Bosch compatibility. Also included will be a 1-3/8” bi-metal plunge blade (A-95255).
Makita’s strong history speaks wonders for the multi-tool industry as good competition always leads to better, high-quality products.
