Makita power tools are often recovered from store returns, reconditioned at the factory and sent out once again to be sold at a discounted price. Not only does this assist the manufacturer in losing less money in the return, but it also offers a new, or almost new, product to the consumer. If trying to avoid reconditioned tools, check product labels. Stores in the United States are required to mark reconditioned items are reconditioned or repaired.
