Makita has a new cordless line

Makita is introducing 40-volt XGT, a new standalone cordless system of tools, equipment, batteries and chargers. XGT will stand side-by-side with the Makita’s 18-volt LXT system, giving users more battery-powered solutions for a truly cordless job site, according to the company.

“Since the launch of 18-volt LXT in 2005, Makita has been leading the way in cordless tool innovation and technology,” said Ken Hefley, executive vice president, marketing, Makita U.S.A. “LXT was a breakthrough with the world’s first 18-volt lithium-ion cordless tool system, giving users 18-volt power with 12-volt weight. Today, with the addition of the new 40-volt XGT System and the continuing expansion of LXT, users win with more ways to work efficiently without traditional power sources.”

XGT will launch first in Japan and will be available in the United States in late 2020, Makita said.
