Makita makes it easier to say goodbye to NiCad batteries
As if longer runtime and lighter weight aren’t good enough reasons to toss your NiCad and NiMh batteries in favor of a Li-ion upgrade, Makita is now offering some free tools to entice buyers to choose their Li-ion cordless tools.
For instance, buy a 6- or 7-piece 18v LXT cordless kit and you mail in a redemption form to receive a free impact driver, hammer-drill/driver, angle grinder, reciprocating saw, 6 1/2-in. circular saw, or blower – all of which are shipped to you as a bare tool (not battery pack/charger) that is compatible with the same battery system and voltage.
This may be a good solution for those buyers who are interested in a 4-piece cordless kit, but they really wish they could get that 5th tool that isn’t included in the standard set.
To see which purchases qualify, and what tools are up for redemption, visit Makitas promo page.
