New 12V max CXT™ is more compact with more comfort and capacity

La Mirada, Calif. – Makita, a pioneer in cordless technology, has released the next generation of 12 volt with the 12V max CXT™ Lithium-Ion cordless tool series. Makita 12V max CXT™ features slide-style batteries so each tool’s handle is built with ergonomics in mind – not around the stem of a battery – for improved grip and comfort. Select models mark the first ever Makita brushless tools in the 12V category.

The launch line-up includes two driver-drills, a hammer driver-drill, impact driver, recipro saw, and 3-3/8” circular saw, as well as select 2-piece combo kits. There is also a brushless driver-drill and brushless hammer driver-drill. All eight tools are powered by new 12V max CXT™ Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries with on-board L.E.D. charge level indicators. This initial launch will be followed by more 12V max CXT™ tools.

More Compact, More Comfort, More Capacity

“These next generation 12-volt max cordless tools give users a more compact solution with more comfort and more capacity,” said Adam Livingston, senior product manager, cordless products. “The slide style battery means superior ergonomics and comfort, and allows go-to tools like the impact driver and drills to stand up on their own for added convenience. And for the first time we’re offering brushless motor 12 volt tools, as well as two and four amp-hour batteries for increased run-time.”

2.0Ah and 4.0Ah Batteries
The new 12V max CXT™ tools are available in kits with 2.0 amp-hour (Ah) batteries and charger. 12V max CXT™ tools are also available as “tool only” (batteries and charger sold separately), so it’s easy for users to expand their line-up. For extended run time, a new 4.0Ah battery with on-board L.E.D. charge level indicator is also available (BL1041B, sold separately).Here is a summary of the 12V max CXT™ launch line-up:
