We have got yet another Makita unit for you to talk about. This is a premium one and this is one of the upper level models from Makita. The unit is a good one but as this is a pricy unit and therefore, it is not one of their most sold items. That results in a reduced number of customer reviews and less buzz in the industry. On the other hand, that doesn’t really mean that it is a bad product.
Anyway, let’s have a quick look at the features of this product.
Now, being a combo kit, it comes with a lot of extras and other benefits. The combo options are different and they will charge you different prices. Depending on your needs, you can decide which one to go for and which one to ignore. Let’s talk about the important features now.
The brushless motor is the top feature if we think about it. This is efficient and this ensures that you can save your battery to up to 50% which is massive when you think about it. In general, the cordless units take a lot of electricity and this one can save up to 50%.
Also, as there is the brushless motor, you do not have to worry about the carbon emission and there is also that BL motor to keep things cool. It is important to keep your kit cool so that it doesn’t damage inside. One of the biggest reasons that why a unit gets damaged is because it gets heated up inside. Fortunately, the chance of this happening with this one is very low.
The speed is variable in this one exactly like the other Makita units. The speed can be handled manually and the RPMs vary from 0-500 and also from 0-2000. The torque is of good range and the weight is also amazing. It is tough to think that a device of this quality will weight only around 4.2 lbs but that’s exactly what this one does which is massive.
Overall, this one is a premium quality unit and that reflects in the price too. If you are on a budget, then this will not be the ideal option for you to go for. On the other hand, if you are not worried about the budget and only concerned about the quality itself, this is definitely a good unit.
Let’s talk about some of the important FAQs that you should know about.
- Do I get the side handle with the main device?
Well, no, you don’t. There is a simple side hanging clip that you can use to hang the device around but you do not have a strong handle in it.
- Do I get the batteries too?
Yes, you will get the required batteries when you are getting this one. The batteries are of good quality and you will not have to replace them for a long period of time.
