Makita have decided that smaller is better with their latest combo kit, the Makita LCT209W. Featuring a 12v drill/driver and a separate impact driver in a small package. Impact drivers are becoming more common in today’s tool kits and understandable so. With their high torque ratings and compact size they make light work of driving long screws into place.
Just released in July 2012 the Makita LCT209W 12 volt cordless drill kit is available from Amazon.com for under $150. This is a good price considering you are getting two power tools, batteries, charger and a hard storage case.
Perfect for professional cabinet makers who need to operate in tight spaces but still have a tool with high torque capacity and light weight precision.
