To kick off the launch of the new Makita 4.0Ah and move through the remaining 3.0Ah kits, Makita is offering a Free BL1840 ($100) with most of their 3.0Ah combo kits. This includes Makita Brushless combo kits like XT248 ($329) which are now available in 4.0Ah kits as well (as XT248M) but doesn’t qualify for this FREE 3rd battery deal. See the MAIL-IN REBATE FORM for full list of qualified combo kits and rules. The offer expires September 30th, 2014 so still plenty of time left to take advantage.
Unfortunately this deal is not available for the Combo Kits which include the new 1,070 in-lbs hammer drill like the XT252M ($399) and XT257M ($379). Those kits will however all automatically come with the BL1840 batteries. The simple way to tell is if the combo kit ends in “M” it will have the 4.0Ah otherwise you can probably assume it is still 3.0Ahr. For any questions on the new Makita cordless tools and/or batteries give the pros at Ohio Power Tool a call 800-242-4424. They will be happy to help you find the right tool for the job.
