Some misinformation here. As others have said, Maktec is long gone so this old stock. Might not be a bad thing, so long as Makita have stock of the batteries to replace them if these are duffers. Maktec was re-branded MT a few years back. They're old-tech Makita mainline tools, i.e. what was blue Makita a few years ago, re-branded and possibly with a few cost-savings thrown in. They're still marketed to pro's (albeit ones who may not use said tool day-in, day-out), and still backed by Makita's 3 year pro-use warranty. They're not strictly DIY tools and absolutely not the equivalent of green Bosch. Sometimes the cost difference between the main line and MT version is minimal, in which case it makes sense to go for the lastest version (main line), but in a lot of cases the difference can be significant (1/4" router at half the price, for example). Either way they're still generally much better value than the equivalently priced offerings from DIY brands.


Maktec are Makitas offerings to the DIY market. A bit like Bosch green compared to the blue professional range. Problem is the price is not a lot different to professional tools when they come on special offer at tool outlets.

Makita DUB361Z Twin 18v (36v) Li-Ion LXT Blower (Body Only) @ Amazon - £61.99

Best price ever. I have it and love it. You will need 2 batteries and a charger minimum, this is body only. I would recommend 4 batteries and the double charger.

If u like to wash your own car, these are great for drying them


That is not even a joke dude.


I bet this blows well. 8)


No batteries or charger... That blows. Oh hang on a minute... It won't.


You should try one. vacs will clear a 15cm x 15cm area when you squeeze the trigger, this will clear a 150cm x 150cm area for the same trigger pull. You can clear patios and driveways in seconds....

Not the most practical or attractive colour though. You can get these black and white editions in the UK. In Japan they also do all black, and black and green and black and pink. Seen metallic Makita green too - for a UK made special edition.


It's an LXT - so compatible battery - but a pretty old/basic model Probably better off with a DHP482 or similar I do actually like the case though - seems more like what they provide in Japan. The Makpacs aren't very space efficient. However the one used for the DHP482 kit above is the type 2 makpac, so a reasonable size - not too over sized.


It is LXT but has the non-fast charger... good deal though!


This is a DHP453 so is LXT. The letters after the model show the package (ie which batteries are included).


It's weird seeing a trade drill with "accessories" I don't know about this particular item but making has been pushing crappy chinese products for high prices abusing their brand reputation

Definitely hold off and pay a bit more for LXT if you can - the range of tools is superb e.g hedge trimmer for £50 as a bare tool. You can buy 1.5 and 2Ah batteries in LXT reasonably cheap - they won't drive all the tools like the circular saw but on drills and impact drivers they last ages and make to tool lighter to use.


That model seems to be a kit for a drill and an impact driver?


This or dewalt 2059?


This is a terrible deal. Smallest possible batteries and low torque


I bought this drill in homebase at Christmas for £75. My mate wanted it, not heard anything feedback on it, so I'm assuming if wasn't to impressed with it

Thanks mate


I think it's fair to say you won't get anything better for the money, or anywhere near it. I think you'd struggle to even get a crappy no-brand one at this price. I've got the blue version (at nearly three times the price) and I can't see much difference to be honest- it looks the same, same specs, etc. It's a good size as well- to my mind there's no point having a 1/4" router that's a big as a 1/2".


Just picked my one up Still have 30 days to return can someone suggest if this is a good buy


I went to change a cutter once without unplugging it, and somehow knocked the power button. That's something you only do once :o


Exactly. Ive been working wood my whole life and don't blink using most machines but routers and spindle moulders scare the sheet out of me. Most cutting tools sever, routers just mangle stuff. Its not getting sown back on

This new 10.8v Makita range is not compact enough to differentiate itself from their 18v stuff, the Bosch pro 12v system is much better designed (or Milwaukee) and way more compact with good range of batteries, a perfect compliment to more powerful but heavier kit.


I wonder who got the power pack.


So not compatible with the LX stuff?

True enough. Wera is much more expensive than other brands


I have both and wera are superior, but generally more expensive.


Thanks for your advice. Makita power tools are excellent so I think their bit set might be the same. I love my Wera set as well


I've got a small Makita bit set, it's nothing special I've also got several £5 chinese sets just like this and I use them all the time - simply because they are all over the house and less hassle than fetching my proper tool kit. Consider doing the same but replacing PZ1 and PZ2 with bits from Dewalt or Milwaukee, you probably won't use the other bits enough to start damaging them.

Not a bad price but both tools are at the lower end of the range. To buy this kit separately would be an extra £50 so as a starter set it's a good buy.

utter junk. spend the money on decent quality bits and rather than buying this tat and then being left with a box of strange bits you’ll never use once the common pieces have melted away


Agree with the other comments here, these Makita kits are very poor. Keep it in the garage with my Bosch and Erbauer kits and the Makita rusted very quickly while the other brands are fine.


It’s also cheaper at Amazon. Cold. Makita P-44046 Drill and Bit Set, 216 pc.


I’d echo the previous comments. This is garbage with a good name attached. Just look at the “generic” tape measure! £10 worth of tools with £40 worth of brand name.


I got the smaller set, it’s not a bad set, all the steel bits have snapped or blunted same with the masonary bits. The wood bits have seemed ok, screwdriver bits are ok to. As long as you don’t expect fantastic quality from them then there ok.

Makita DUH523Z Cordless LXT Lithium-Ion Hedge Trimmer (Body Only), 18 V, 52 cm £52.99 @ Amazon (Prime Exclusive)

Body Only - so you'll need a battery and charger. Good for those that have the kit already. Cheapest its been according to 3 camels.

The battery and charger will cost as much again. Its not such a bargain unless you have those already.


Superb. Got a charger and battery i was thinking of selling but perhaps worth keeping and buying this trimmer? Anyone got first hand experience of this? Does the AH of the battery, effect its performance and/or run time significantly?


I was looking at this for £75 thanks for the post


Click on other sellers. Amazon still have it at £52.99. Out of stock at the moment but they supply once back in stock. (y)

You're not actually supposed to cut more than a third of the height off the grass at a time anyway, it weaks the grass. Dont do a second pass wait a couple of days.


Not genuine Makita, dont know what they're going to be like...


My parents have a smaller Bosch than yours and the lawn is around the same size and it can be done with one battery.


You can get, if you don't already have the batteries from around £25 each 18v 4.0 ah batteries from amazon too. Link below. Don't forget you need a charger too.

Fastfix confirmed basically what you said, Additionally makita direct confirmed everything was as should and date/serials all check out.


It's plausible- they could be metric in Japan rather than the imperial UK ones. I know they do both 1/2" and 12mm routers, depending on the market (though that's probably just a different collet). But the metric counterpart of 1/4" tends to be 6mm (rather than the direct equivalent of 6.35mm), which would mean a 1/4" bit wouldn't fit at all, rather than having play. So I don't know. Definitely worth looking into though before you take the plunge.


It's probably split from a pack. I wouldn't worry about it, it's fairly common practice. I've had drills and batteries arrive the same way from other sellers, they're just taking a kit and selling all the components separately.


Yes that’s my point I have emailed and asked. Over the past two months I bought the jigsaw,orbit sander and hoover all of which Came in its own box with Makita paper work. So I am A little sceptical about what I received!


Ah right! Yeah mine come like that too. I’ve never bought a bare unit before so wasn’t sure how they came. Didn’t seem quite how it should from manufacture though !!
