Has anyone got a 18v LXT Makita multi tool and is it any good?
Got the brushless one and it works a treat...my only gripe is that it comes with a small hex key to change blades which fits into the base near the battery compartment and it falls out and is easily lost. Usually get a good deal on compatible blades from Saxton
I'm happy with mine
As above the Allen key falls out
It's loud but they all are.
got the keyless one. its great but the lock snapped shortly after i got it, sent to makita and sent back in a day so cant complain
I have one. Best tool in the box. However it did break under warrenty and the motor and board got replaced. It is loud but most are. Only flaw is that the allan key release could be easily rounded off.
I have a dewalt with the quick release system. I like it.
I have the brushless makita one. Its a god send
I have Makita 18v LXT quick release type - excellent tool, brilliant for use 2nd fixing.
Just a word of advice that I learnt recently, when you're cutting DON'T just force the blade against whatever you're cutting - you must move the blade from side-to-side. Your blades last longer, less burning and less frustration!
I have the the quick release Makita it is the best thing since sliced bread. I love it had it about a year now and it has done some work in that time. It comes out every working day. The quick release is excellent no fafing with allen keys any more. Recommend it to any tradesman.
Being a cheapskate I brought an Euraber quick release one(240v), I have sent it to hell and back and it still comes back for more, every other bit of my kit is Makita though. I dont think I could have treated this thing harder.
