In the early eighties ECA customers were “Wowed!” when our Reps would visit them on site and demonstrate the new Makita 7.2v Nickel Cadmium battery drill driver (6010D)
Site work would stop and our Reps would be surrounded by tradesmen who were fascinated by the performance of this magic new tool!
Carpenters especially abandoned their Stanley Yankee Pump screwdrivers and enthusiastically bought in to Makita , the first UK supplier of battery drills for Tradesmen.
Roll on 35 years to 2005 and Makita again revolutionised the now established battery tool market ! They introduced their new slide on ,light weight Lithium Iron battery system.
The difference in battery performance was astounding ! Drill drivers were now lasting all week on one fast charge! Even high wattage circular saws and grinders were now matching mains performance and giving a days work on one charge !
For a while they were ahead of the market and many ECA trade customers bought and have happily settled on the Makita 18v system as their main platform.
Makita’s early start in the market place and enthusiastic product development means they now have over 100 different portable power tools in the popular 18v range. Once you have a charger and some batteries , you may be able to buy any one of these 100 super efficient tools as a bare unit and expand your kit to suit your specific tasks.
