Makita Industrial Power Tools Drive Performance in Off-Road
Makita Industrial Power Tools continue to be power tool of choice for the top teams in professional off-road racing. From Perris to Crandon to Baja, the best off-road race teams demand Makita to keep their engines running and their trucks in one piece on the most punishing courses in racing.
Makita was the first power tool company to engineer 18 volt Cordless Power Tools with Lithium-Ion Battery Technology. Three years after its launch there are 35 cordless solutions in the Makita 18V LXT Series, offering off-road teams a full range of drilling, driving, fastening, grinding, and cutting power tools that will work off one battery. Makita LXT allows teams to effectively “cut the cord” of air power tools and go cordless for everything from turning lug nuts and working on race engines to cutting fiberglass and tightening shocks.
As the Traxxas TORC Series rumbles on, drivers are searching for an edge as they take on the whoops and jumps on punishing courses from Bark River to Las Vegas. Walk the pits at a TORC race, and it’s clear that many of the racers who end up on the podium demand the industrial power and performance of Makita.
Racers and race teams who rely on Makita include:
- Rick Huseman, Monster Energy/Traxxas/Toyota Racing
- Johnny Greaves, Monster Energy/BFG Tires/Toyota/Potawatomi Racing
- Curt LeDuc, Rockstar Energy/Makita Power Tools Team LeDuc Racing
MacCachren, Rockstar Energy Racing
- Travis Coyne, Pro Comp Racing
Makita Industrial Power Tools a Perfect Fit for Racing Makita is no stranger to the fast-paced action of professional racing. In addition to off-road, Makita is the power tool of choice for top teams in motocross, supercross, superbike, ATV, KART, side-by-side, and even snocross.
