For high-demand applications: The XGT 40V 8.0Ah battery from power tool maker Makita.
The Makita 40V max XGT 8.0Ah battery provides higher output power and up to two-times longer run time than its XGT 4.0Ah battery.
Makita U.S.A., Inc., is introducing the 40V max XGT 8.0Ah battery, giving contractors higher output power for high-demand applications. It is fully compatible with all products in the expanding XGT System.
“Makita is excited to announce that the next phase of XGT battery technology is here,” said Erick Cornejo, product marketing manager, drilling and fastening, Makita U.S.A., Inc.
The battery is part of XGT, an expanding system of 40V and 80V max cordless equipment and tools, said the company. XGT gives users one system, from core handheld tools like drills and impact drivers to equipment-grade products including high-capacity saws, rotary hammers, and power cutters.
“Last year Makita launched the XGT platform to reach the next level of power, and today we are introducing our new 40-volt max eight amp-hour battery. This new battery will give users the next level of run-time needed for higher output power tools and equipment,” said Cornejo.
The 8.0Ah battery is engineered for higher output power, said the firm. For increased efficiency, it reaches a full charge in only 76 minutes or less on the XGT rapid optimum charger, said Makita.
The battery features an impact-resistant outer case, said the tool maker, along with a shock-absorbing inner liner, an enhanced cooling system engineered to maximize battery life, and rigid rails with impact-resistant construction to secure the battery to the tool during high-demand applications.
