Extra power


Operating time of Makita's 24 V power tools has been increased with extra battery power. The batteries have been upgraded from 3 A/hr to 3.3 A/hr and the tools are supplied with a separate 2 A/hr battery, upgraded from 1.7 A/hr. This gives a total increase of 12 per cent of useable working time.
