Makita tools are a regular feature in a handyman or handywoman's tool belt. The LCT line of tools are a series of cordless drills, whereas the LXT line of tools is a wider range of tools.
All products in the Makita LCT series of tools are cordless drill combination kits. Take the LCT203, for example, which features a 1/4 inch hex shank cordless drill or the LCT200 S, which features a 1/2 inch cordless driver drill. The drills in the LCT line all include lithium ion rechargeable battery kids and chargers.
The LXT series of tools takes the lithium ion battery technology from the LCT series and applies it to a wider range of home repair solutions. The LXT batteries are an average of 40 per cent lighter than similar lithium ion batteries and use fewer cells to achieve the same voltage rating.
Whereas the LCT series refers specifically to drills, the LXT branches out. Although it includes cordless drills, it also includes blowers, shearers, rotary hammers, drivers, angle grinders and many other cordless products. Makita products are available from most home improvement stores.
