Makita XGT provides the power professionals need

Landscape professionals require high performance machines and tools to meet the daily demands of the job. Traditionally, the only option for heavy-duty tasks was petrol power.

However, Makita’s XGT 40VMax and 80VMax cordless machines provide the required performance plus all the benefits of cordless.

The growing Makita XGT range now comprises over 50 machines including more than 20 garden and grounds maintenance models.

There are XGT blowers,hedge trimmers, brush cutters, linetrimmers and split shaft multifunction tools. The range also includes 40VMax and 80VMax tools for hard landscaping tasks including circular and mitre saws, impact drivers, brad nailers and earth augers.

XGT is Makita’s most powerful cordless offering to date and provides users with the high levels of performance needed for professional use, without compromising on battery run time or charge time.

The XGT 40VMax and 80VMax machines can easily match the performance of the equivalent petrol products without the noise, emissions or challenges of storing, transporting and handling fuel.

Makita has engineered its XGT batteries for rapid charging to significantly reduce downtime and improve productivity. A 2.5Ah XGT battery will charge in just 28 minutes and a 4.0Ah battery in just 45 minutes.

To optimise run times further, the machines feature Makita’s innovative ‘BL’ brushless motor technology.

With no brushes within the motor to generate friction, there is less energy lost through heat, resulting in improved efficiency and longer run times.

This also reduces on-going maintenance costs as there is minimal wear on the motor components.

Makita’s XGT tools are also built to last. That is why XGT batteries have been built for durability with a secure connection mechanism that prevents accidental detachment and a heavy duty, shock absorbing outer casing and cell holder that protects from accidental heavy impacts.

The battery is also IPX4 rated with a triple layer waterproofing, which means it is splash and shower proof – ideal for outdoor garden and grounds maintenance work.

Finally, until 30th September 2022, customers can claim a free XGT product when purchasing qualifying XGT machines (models supplied with two 2.5Ah batteries and a charger).

Users can simply register their purchase online within the qualifying period to receive either the MR002GZ01 Bluetooth Job Site Radio (compatible with LXT, XGT and CXT batteries), MP001GZ XGT 40VMax Inflator or ML003G XGT 40VMax Worklight.
