New Updates To The Makita 12V Max Line Hot

Makita has announced some new 12-volt max tools, and pretty much completes an upgrade to their entire 12V line. Of course they could still always expand on their line, and that would be just fine with us. Some of the new tools we have seen already, such as the FD02W Drill/Driver and the SH01W Circular Saw that make up the LCT307 kit. The other new tools in the line seem to only have minor updates over the previous models. Power wise the specs appear to be the same as previous models, so it probably doesn't make since to upgrade if you own an older model, however, some of the new models are lighter and smaller.

Makita has the new 12v max tools available as tool only, or you can purchase them as kits. For more information see the Press Release below.
