With it being the gift giving season we have been on the hunt for items that could make for some great presents for different members of the family. Most would agree that the men are the most difficult to buy for and they usually end up with the shirts, socks and ties for lack of better ideas. Perhaps the Makita XT610 LXT Cordless 6 Piece Combo Tool Kit will be a great solution.
If you have a handyman on your Christmas list or a man who would LIKE to be handier but lacks the tools to let him express his inner Bob Vila than Makita has got you covered this holiday season with the Makita XT610 LXT Cordless 6 Piece Combo Tool Kit!
The claim is that this Makita XT610 LXT Cordless 6 Piece Combo Tool Kit has everything you need when it comes to power tools to complete just about every job you have around the house!
The hype is mostly from the fact that Makita is a very respected name in power tools and they have compiled a great set of power tools here that are powered by their new lithium ion batteries that last and last.
The cost of the Makita XT610 LXT Cordless 6 Piece Combo Tool Kit is only $539.99. While that may seem a little high when you compare with other makers and see the great selection that Makita offers it is really a good price. If you were to buy each of these tools separately you would expect to pay a great deal more than this combo price. You can also get the older version of this kit for a significantly lower price as well but the improvements that Makita has made with this kit would then be missing!
Other than making sure that you have one of the batteries charged for use there is very little commitment required for the Makita XT610 LXT Cordless 6 Piece Combo Tool Kit. The commitment might stem for the jobs that you will no longer be able to put off for lack of tools that the spouse may now want you to complete! The soft case included that holds the tools is great for storing them when not in use as well!
We have reviewed a few tool kits in the past but this Makita XT610 LXT Cordless 6 Piece Combo Tool Kit is simply a great gift idea for the home handyman that we could not pass up giving this one some attention at the Christmas season. The combo has a great variable speed Hammer Drill, and very light and easy to use 6.5 inch circular saw (which is fabulous for doing fence boards and the like easily and with added portability due to the cordless nature!) a reciprocating saw that can cut in very tight spaces and can be used for a wide variety of things that a regular saw cannot reach, an Angle Grinder for special jobs that require some grinding, a fantastic and powerful Impact Driver that you find you most likely use the most and a wickedly powerful flashlight that comes in handy when the light is bad or the sun starts to go down and the job is unfinished! All units are powered by the all-new 18 volt Lithium Ion batteries that hold a good charge for hours of work, there are two included so that you always have one on the included charger and one in the unit you are using at the time!
Final Makita XT610 LXT Cordless 6 Piece Combo Tool Kit Review
This Makita XT610 LXT Cordless 6 Piece Combo Tool Kit is absolutely top notch for those who like to DIY. There are more professional kits with a much larger price tag than the Makita kit but they are really un-necessary for most jobs around the home. This unit will outperform anything in the same price range easily. A great Christmas present that will not break the bank and will provide years of useful service! As you can guess we are prepared to give this product a Thumbs Up rating.
Makita has always been a great brand for the DIYer and this kit is no exception. Anyone who finds this under the tree will be incredibly excited…AND have no more excuses for not getting that fence or basement renovation job completed! Sorry guys!
