Makita is a trusted brand with professionals, known for quality and durability, and this six-piece kit from Makita has all the tools to get the job done. It’s also the perfect tax time investment, with savings of up to $400 and a chance to redeem a 1/3rd sheet sander, multi-tool or jigsaw if you buy before June 30.
The Makita 6-Piece Combo Kit has some big-ticket items that make your job easier, including a couple of essential tools for tradies and apprentices. It includes:
The Impact Driver has four modes of impact driving so you can optimise for the task at hand, with the T-mode intelligently adjusting RPM when driving tek screws. A staggering 175Nm of max fastening torque comes standard, but you can always opt for the upgrade for more power. The impact driver is a great one for things like batten screws and doorjambs, with a one-touch bit installation and XPT technology that protects against dust and moisture to ensure longevity.
The well-weighted Hammer Driver Drill is compact, making it perfect for use in narrow workspaces. However, this doesn’t mean it doesn’t pack a serious punch – it can drill up to a 152mm hole saw and 50mm auger bit, thanks to a high-powered brushless motor that produces 141Nm peak torque. It has all-metal gear construction and high durability aluminium gear housing, giving you the confidence to get on with the job.
The brushless Angle Grinder has been designed with safety and comfort in mind, with a slide switch making it easier on the hands. An automatic torque drive changes the cutting speed, allowing for an even current and preventing the chance of jamming.
The Circular Saw is a tradie’s favourite and Makita is known for having one of the best on the market. This 165mm version features a magnesium base with 45- and 50-degree bevel cutting capacity, as well as large levers that can be used with gloved hands. The automatic torque drive means it will automatically increase motor torque according to load conditions, with a powerful brushless DC motor providing the juice.
Finally, the Reciprocating Saw offers a 32mm stroke with a cutting capacity of 255mm in wood. The vertical crank mechanism reduces vibration, which the XPT technology protects against dust and moisture. It also features a rafter hanging hook for added convenience when working on a roof.
All these tools need power, which is where the 2 5.0Ah batteries come into play. These batteries will work perfectly with the power tools in the kit, but if you need a little more run-time, you can upgrade to the 6.0Ah battery. (This battery is particularly helpful for the circular saw and grinder.)
The rapid charger means you’ll never have to wait long for some juice – in 45 minutes, the batteries are charged.
If you’re an apprentice getting started, this kit is a great investment. If purchased individually, the tools would cost around $2,000. With the tax time savings, you’ll save $400. The beauty of it is that you can always add to it later – all of the batteries are interchangeable, so you can always upgrade later.
The easiest way to purchase your Makita 6-Piece Combo Kit is through your Bunnings PowerPass account. And if you buy before June 30, you can redeem one of three tools – choose from the 1/3rd sheet sander, multi-tool or jigsaw for a complete starter’s kit.
