Makita LCT302wIn the past people would look for tools with the highest amount of volts to insure they were getting a powerful tool. Now with newer technology we can get a powerful tool in a much smaller package, which also costs a lot less. Just a few years ago, you could only get a 12-volt Makita impact, and it had about the same amount of torque as the newer 10.8-volt Makita impact.

Makita has announced a new 10.8V Lithium-Ion Compact 3-Piece Cordless Combo Kit (model LCT302W). The new combo kit features a 10.8V Compact Lithium-Ion Driver-Drill and 10.8V Compact Lithium-Ion Impact Driver, as well as a new 10.8V Flashlight. The combo kit also includes an ENERGY STAR rated battery charger, two Lithium-Ion batteries, and a metallic case.

The new compact 10.8-volt flashlight weights in at just over a half-pound (.55 lbs) and offers 540 minutes of continuous light on a single charge.

The 10.8V Lithium-Ion Compact Driver-Drill (DF030D) has a 1/4" hex shank to fit standard 1/4" drill bits. The Makita-built motor delivers 200 in.lbs. of torque with two speed settings (0-350/0-1,300 RPM), variable speed and 18 clutch stages. The Compact Driver-Drill weighs just 1.9 pounds, and includes an L.E.D. light to illuminate the drilling surface, and an ergonomic grip that fits like a glove for even pressure and easy control.

The 10.8V Lithium-Ion Compact Impact Driver Kit (TD090D) has 0-3,000 impacts per minute, with a durable and long-lasting hammer/anvil design. The Makita-built variable speed motor delivers 800 in.lbs. of torque and a no load speed of 0-2,400 RPM. The Compact Impact Driver weighs just 2 pounds, and also has an L.E.D. light and ergonomic grip that fits like a glove for even pressure and easy control.

These powerful yet compact cordless tools are built for maintenance professionals, repairmen, remodelers, electricians, cabinet installers, and any general contractor seeking a compact cordless driver-drill and impact driver with pro power and pro speed.

The 10.8V Compact Lithium-Ion 3-Piece Combo Kit (LCT302W) has an amazingly low retail price of $209. The LCT302W will be available in January 2009. The LCT203W 10.8V Compact Lithium-Ion 2-piece combo kit, which does not include the 10.8V flashlight, is available now.
