Makita is known for the Makita cordless drill. Actually they are known for a lot more, but the cordless drill is their power tool. Makita uses premium grade steel for their gears and 97% pure cooper for the magnetic wire for current flow. Another reason Makita is successful with their drills is their battery technology. Makita uses NiMH battery technology for their cordless drills. This allows them to have more amps which create a longer run time.

These have stood the test of time and are considered true professional power tools. Makita offers a variety of cordless drill options and you should decide on the job function of the drill.

Makita Cordless Drills – Makita offers one of the widest array of cordless drills. They offer a 7.2, 9.6, 12, 14.4 and 18 volt cordless drill. If you are looking for a light weight drill for simply hanging pictures and other light weight, I would go with the 9.6 volt. The 9.6 is still light weight, but has some good power to the drill. The 14.4 volt cordless drill is great for a home owner looking for more power to handle most things around the house, including some light carpentry work. If your looking for power go with the 18 volt, as it has low sound and a great balance.
In 2005 Makita came out with there LXT Lithium Ion battery for their 18 volt system.
