This new multi-tool is just one of more than 50 tools that are all powered by Makita LXT lithium ion, the industry’s first 18 volt lithium-ion battery.

Makita tools, already much discussed on ToolSelect.com, launched two new multi-tools, setting up the ToolSelect community for more tool reviews and discussions.

The cordless 18V LXT lithium ion cordless multi-tool was designed for up to 15 minutes of run time using a fast-charging 18V LXT battery. Variable speed (6,000-20,000 OPM) and a soft start feature are meant to give the user more control for each application.

“As the market leader in 18 volt lithium ion, it is only natural that Makita delivered a cordless oscillating multi-tool with the speed and performance of a corded multi-tool,” said Ethan Haughawout, product manager of cordless tools with Makita. “This new multi-tool is just one of more than 50 tools that are all powered by Makita LXT lithium ion, the industry’s first 18 volt lithium-ion battery.”

Makita’s new corded multi-tool is powered by a 3.0-amp motor with a soft-start feature for smooth starts. 6,000-20,000 OPM variable-speed control combines with the electronic speed control in an effort generate smooth, high quality work.

Both tools use a 3.2-degree oscillation angle intended for faster, more aggressive cutting and sanding. The cordless tool is available as a kit that includes two batteries, a charger and 15 accessories for cutting and sanding.

“Multi-tools are big with our community,” says Tom Klein, vice president of marketing and merchandising with ToolSelect. “We’ve been building our repository of tool reviews with the many new multi-tools from all brands being released, and these two new Makita tools are sure to generate more discussion.”
