Which Cordless System is Right for You?

Makita cordless tools are divided into three series based on their features, performance, and price ranges. These series include:

Makita XGT

XGT is Makita’s new 40V and 80V system of cordless equipment and tools. Each tool in this series features built-in microchips in both the tool and the battery to allow for real-time digital communication. This communication actively monitors heat, overload, and over-discharge to ensure optimal battery health over time. All XGT tools also feature purpose-built brushless motors with more copper windings for increased power output. One of the most unique and useful features of the XGT series is the ability to use two batteries at once in 80V tools, allowing for run times that rival corded tools and gas equipment. If you are looking for powerful, intelligent, and efficient equipment to handle a variety of projects, look no further than the Makita XGT series.

Makita LXT

Makita was the first manufacturer to introduce 18V lithium-ion cordless tools. Today, the LXT System is the world’s largest compatible 18V slide-style battery system with over 275 unique products. Makita’s purpose-built motors, battery technology, and enhanced communications work together to deliver unmatched power, speed, and run time. In addition to the many products in the general LXT series, there are additional options in the LXT Premium series and LXT Sub-Compact series, ensuring quality solutions for every trade and project.

Makita CXT

The CXT System provides compact solutions with superior comfort and capacity. The superior ergonomics allow easy handling for all users of any experience level. 12V CXT products are equipped with efficient brushless motors for longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life.
