Makita are an American power tool specialist, and their LXT range were the first widely-available 18V power system power tools. It’s a legacy they’re proud of, which is why their 18V range is one of the largest available on the market today.
What that means is that if you purchase the Makita XPH12Z, you’re getting something that can work on its own or be combined with other 18V power tools for increased battery life and flexibility.
This cordless drill is no slouch on its own, either: capable of reaching 2,000 RPM, this is a very competent combi drill, which is all the more impressive given that it’s available at a midrange price point.
With Makita’s own XPT (extreme protection technology) increasing the Cordless Hammer Driver-Drill’s resistance to dust and water, this is a drill which is both ready for the worksite and well within the price range of the home DIY enthusiast.
