Makita is already adding to their new 40V/80V MAX XGT System with 10 exciting new products! They have now announced an all-new cordless rotary hammer, miter saw, impact wrench, vacuum, some outdoor power equipment, and a dual-port charger to tackle the most high-demand applications.

Makita’s goal is to make every jobsite 100% cordless without compromising power output, efficiency, or runtime, and the objective of the XGT line specifically is to create cordless equivalents to high power tools that are typically corded or gas-powered on the jobsite. There are now over 50 different tools and accessories in the Makita XGT range that go where cordless tools previously couldn’t.

What’s New?

The new Brushless 2” AVT Rotary Hammer (GRH06) is revolutionizing the commercial construction industry by providing 27% faster drilling performance than an equivalent corded model. It also has advanced Anti-Vibration Technology for more comfort and precision. This powerful tool can use two 40V batteries at once to achieve up to 80 volts of output. The AVT Rotary Hammer is compatible with SDS-Max bits and is built to last through any jobsite conditions with Makita’s Extreme Protection Technology (XPT) that delivers dust and water protection.

For the residential construction world, the 40V Max XGT Brushless 10” Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw (GSL03) cuts faster than many corded miter saws on the market. It can cut up to 6-5/8” crown molding and 5-1/4” baseboard, and miters 0-60° left and right, while beveling 0-48° left and right. It features an L.E.D. light that casts a shadow of the saw blade onto the material for an exact cutting line. The rail-forward design maximizes workspace when up against a wall, and you can quickly adjust the fence and extension wings to provide material support.

The new Brushless 4-Speed Mid-Torque ½” Sq. Drive Impact Wrench with Friction Ring (GWT07) or Detent Anvil (GWT08) are two new impact wrenches that have enhanced fastening control and are ideal for automotive, installation, and fabrication trades. They deliver 810 ft-lbs. of nut-busting torque and 560 ft-lbs. of fastening torque. The 4-speed power selection switch delivers precise fastening control for a wide range of applications.

Makita is also introducing a few new trimmers to their outdoor power equipment lineup. The 24 and 30” Hedge Trimmers (GHU02 and GHU03) and the 24” Rough Cut Hedge Trimmer (GHU01) are their newest Hedge Trimmer Attachments. The Brushless Couple Shaft (GUX01) power head delivers the power of a 30cc gas string trimmer and is compatible with a range of couple shaft attachments that are currently available. It also has three speed options controlled by a variable trigger to match the power and speed needed for various applications.

If you’re looking for a new cleaning solution for inside the home or workspace, the new XGT Brushless 4-Speed Compact Vacuum (GLC01) is compact, powerful, and is a convenient solution for up to 80 minutes of cordless cleaning on a single charge. It also has a quiet operating sound level of 65 dB(A) on high and only 54 dB(A) on low, which is much quieter than corded versions on the market.
