Entry-level Makita - with no compromise

Published: 22 March 2016
Makita's quality of materials and engineering is maintained in its new G-Series range of cordless machines, whilst specification is tailored to match a lower budget and less stringent applications.
Entry-level Makita - with no compromise
This lithium-ion battery platform also fills the void that will be left due to the withdrawal of ni-cad battery power tools from 2017.

Both 14.4V and 18V tools are included in the range, which comprises drills, drill drivers, impact drivers, jigsaws, garden hedge-trimmers and line-trimmers.

Makita says performance standards have not been compromised. For example, the 18V drill driver generates 42Nm of torque and is easily capable of boring a 13mm hole in steel. It has a two-speed gearbox, 16 torque settings, keyless chuck, electric brake and variable speed control by trigger action, and weighs just 1.7kg.
