What an amazing tool !!
I have been a Makita owner for almost 10 yrs, and they just keep getting better every year. I'm an automotive technician and use this tool everyday. It has amazing power, light weight, the LED is more useful than you can probably imagine. I use the compact Li-Ion batteries at work to keep size and weight down and they still seem to last forever. I also have 5 other LXT tools, that I use regularly at work, and at home on various projects. You really cannot go wrong with Makita.

If you're considering purchasing a Makita product, don't hold back! These tools are worth their weight in gold, and they have an amazing warranty if something unexpected should happen.

GREAT POWER, REMOVES LUG NUTS
I BOUGHT THIS TOOL FOR AUTOBODY WORK, DISASSEMBLING AND REASSEMBLING CARS DURING THE REPAIR PROCESS. IT HAS MORE THAN ENOUGH POWER TO DO THE TOUGHEST BOLTS. THE LIGHT WEIGHT IS A MUST FOR ALL DAY USE AND THE ELECTRIC BRAKE STOPS THE MOTOR QUICKLY SO THE FASTENERS DON'T FLY OUT OF THE SOCKETS.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.

If inspection shows the trouble is caused by defective workmanship or material, Makita will repair (or at its option, replace without charge).

This Warranty does not apply where:
  • Repairs have been made or attempted by others
  • Repairs are required because of normal wear and tear
  • The tool has been abused, misused or improperly maintained
  • Alterations have been made to the tool
In no event shall Makita be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages from the sale or use of the product.
