  • The Never Ending Story!


    Makita is renowned the world over for their extensive range of premium power tools. United Tools Toolboss is a proud supplier of Makita power tools, including the 18V DLS713 Mobile Slide Compound Mitre Saw.

    Reviewers have been astounded by the speed and sheer power of this new cordless mobile slide compound mitre saw. And with its compact design and all-metal yet lightweight body, it’s unsurprisingly popular among builders, tradesmen and DIY enthusiasts.

    Its 4-pole slide construction eliminates vibrations, enabling precise, exact cutting. Powered by 18V LXT Lithium-ion batteries and weighing in at just 127 kg, it’s an excellent on-site sawing solution.

    In this short video we put Makita’s revolutionary new DLS713 Mobile Slide Compound Mitre Saw through another of ‘real hardwood tests’. Taking on 90 x 19mm Merbau hardwood, how many cuts will we get on a 5.0 amp battery? An impressive 300 cuts! Click here to see it action!

  • Real Tests are Done in Hardwood!


    The Makita Corporation is known globally for its premium cordless and electric power tool range. United Tools Toolboss is one of Australia’s leading Makita suppliers, including the new DHS680 18V Brushless Cordless Circular Saw.

    Of the many features that make this cordless circular saw stand out from other saws on the market, its revolutionary brushless motor is one of the most outstanding.

    Brushless motors are far more efficient than brushed motors. Combined with its other exceptional features, it’s more powerful and offers greater runtime than other circular saws. The ideal circular saw for builders, home handymen and tradesmen.

    To prove just how efficient it is, we’ve put it to the test in hardwood. Click here to see the new DHS680 18V Brushless Cordless Circular Saw taking on 140 x 45mm kiln dried Blackbutt hardwood.

  • DC18RD Same Time Dual Port Charger

    Makita continues to aid tradesmen and builders with the addition of the DC18RD Same Time Dual Port Charger to their range of power tools and accessories.

    Rapid Charging Time

    This 18 V unit rapidly charges two 3.0 Ah lithium-ion batteries simultaneously in a mere 22 minutes. This time increases to 45 minutes with dual 5.0 Ah batteries.

    The built-in CPU determines the optimal charging method by getting information from each battery’s memory chip. The device also boasts a forced air cooling fan which rapidly transfers heat away from the battery and reduces the overall charging time.

    Extra Product Features

    The LED charging display and full charge alert sound make operating this device simple, quick and convenient. Tradesmen can also charge their smartphones and tablets thanks to the inbuilt 1.5 A output. Finally, the unit is light and compact with a net weight of 1.9 kg and an overall length of 200 mm.

  • The Undisputed Champion!


    Makita has long been known for the quality, durability and performance of their range of power tools. Of course their reputation is well-deserved as can be seen in this video where the team at Makita Australia prove the claim that their 18 V Mobile Hammer Driver Drill is the world’s most powerful tool of its kind.

    The Test

    With some 45 mm thick kiln-dried hardwood secured to a bench top, the team tested the drill’s 5.0 amp battery by seeing how many holes could be drilled consecutively with a 28 mm auger bit before the power eventually ran out.

    The Results

    The drill performed remarkably well with the bit making holes in almost two full planks of hardwood timber. In the end, an impressive 107 holes were drilled before the battery ran out of power. This is hard proof that Makita really produces the highest performing drills on the market.
