Makita produces motors that are efficient, but also very durable. The raw materials used to create motor components are of the highest quality and they have made some rather significant advances in motor design. These raw materials are made from premium grade steel and 97% pure copper wire.
This means that the motors have a superior current flow and therefore, more power. In addition, the quality control is quite impressive. There are a total of 19 different checks on just the motor alone, including those for surge durability, electrical resistance, and mechanical efficiency. A three minute final test run while under power ensures the best performance possible. You can rest assured that you’re getting a tool that has been carefully made and well-tested.

History of Makita Tools
The history of Makita is quite interesting. Founded in Nagoya, Japan in 1915, Makita was originally a repair shop. The first electric tool the company made was a portable electric planer. Makita is actually credited with the first cordless power drill in 1978. I bought my first Makita cordless in 1979 and what a transformation it made to my productivity. The success of this and other tools lead to the opening of factories in the United States, Canada, and China.
Today, the Makita Company focuses on innovative products, including many superior woodworking tools such as saws, routers, and planers. With plants now in Japan, Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany, the company continues to grow.
