The New XGT 40v max range will stand side-by-side with industry-leading LXT ® System
For a number of years now Makita has had a vision to provide consumers with a battery solution for all applications across Building Construction, Industrial, Garden Machinery and Commercial Cleaning Channels.
In keeping with their vision, Makita is ready to lead the way. We are excited to announce the launch of the new XGT 40v Max battery system that will coexist with LXT range of products and continue towards building a battery solution for all applications!
Will Makita XGT replace the LXT Range?
The answer is NO! Makita will continue to invest heavily in LXT, and there is a tremendous roadmap of new LXT products in the pipeline for trade users in all divisions. The LXT Advantage seamlessly utilizes a single battery across hundreds of products, with the ability of added power by using two 18v batteries in selected Twin 18V products (36V). This is a simple concept that has revolutionized how work is done on job sites.
Will a Makita LXT battery fit in an XGT charger?
With the introduction of a charging adaptor, this will enable you to charge both LXT and XGT batteries when using the XGT charger.
Is this the perfect time to invest in one cordless solution to suit a number of applications?
We believe here at Fastfix that it is an exciting time for existing Makita users and new users alike. The complete solution LXT and XGT provide for applications across Building Construction, Industrial, Garden Machinery and Commercial Cleaning Channels is unmatched. Don’t forget Makita’s plan is to continue to rollout many new LXT & XGT products over the coming 12 months and for years to follow.
