Makita open 2021 STAFDA Trade Show with 15 new cordless power tools

Makita opened the 2021 STAFDA Trade Show with over 15 new cordless tool and power equipment releases, as well as new high‐capacity batteries. These solutions give users more options to replace products powered by cords and gas.

The 15+ new releases include a new battery‐powered 14 inch power cutter, the latest addition to the 40V | 80V XGT® System. New releases also include additions to the 18V LXT® System which now offers 275+ products and is the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V batteries. Makita is also showing a new ConnectX™ backpack power supply with most powerful battery ever offered by Makita, as well as compatible products including a new 21” lawn mower.

Mario Lopez, director of product development, Makita U.S.A., Inc said: “Cordless innovation has taken so many job site applications to battery powered, but for years there have been those select applications at the top of the demand scale that still require cords, gasoline or compressed air.”

“Makita continues to break down cordless boundaries with advances in battery and motor technology that provide more power, longer run time and unmatched convenience and compatibility, like our new XGT® 14‐inch power cutter. This is just one example, and Makita is here at STAFDA to bring our vision of a cordless future to life with real innovation that will make life better for professional users.”

The new ConnectX™ backpack power supply is most powerful battery ever offered by Makita and is ideal for all‐day work when used with compatible products including mowers, trimmers, and blowers. It has easy compatibility with Makita ConnectX™ products, as well as Makita 40V max XGT® and 36V (18V X2) LXT® products when used with an adaptor. It features IPX4 rated weather‐resistant construction. The ConnectX™ backpack power supply is available from November 2021.
