I’ve had a driver and impact drill set from Makita for a year now. It was an 18v combo kit that my wife got me as a Christmas gift. It’s been a very good set, however it is the generation prior to the LXT models available now.
I would typically buy PC bits with any extra money I get from time to time for working various extra work outside the normal year. While I still have been considering the purchase of PC hardware, I thought it might be a good idea to buy some new Makita 18v gear. It just so happens I noticed some price drops, so I thought why not.
Picked up the following items today, and plan on buying an additional item this week, as I need some 18v LXT 3.0Ah batteries and charger to suit.
As I mentioned above, was going to buy a rapid charger and 2 batteries, however decided to buy the kit below which includes the batteries I need and the rapid charger, but also gives me a hammer drill in the LXT range, which I somewhat need, as I don’t have one already from my existing kit I own.
At which point I will be buying probably another individual battery to give me 3 total and some additional 18v LXT Li-Ion tools. As I really want to get a jigsaw, circular saw, multitool.
