Makita adds DCX200 & DCX201 heated base layer shirts to its job site apparel range

In addition to powering the expanding line-up of cordless tools and accessories, Makita has introduced two new heated base layers to its job site apparel range. Powered either with Makita’s 18V LXT or the 12Vmax CXT battery, professionals can stay warm when working in cold, harsh job site conditions with the new DCX200 and DCX201 heated base layer shirts.

With four dedicated heat zones – front waist, both forearms and back – for optimum heat distribution and three heat settings to adjust to changing weather conditions, these new garments can provide continuous heat for up to 33 hours - when used on the low setting with the BL1860B 6Ah LXT battery, which is sold separately.


Both base layers are made from elasticated fabric to allow unrestricted movement, are machine washable and have a simple switch on/off button that's easily accessible at the front. The key difference between the two products is the style – the DCX200 is a simple pullover style shirt with a round neck, while the slip on DCX201 features a half zip with stand-up collar.

The new long-sleeved base layers can be powered by Makita’s 18V LXT or 12Vmax CXT batteries, which can be placed in a battery holder attached to the waist belt.

Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita UK, commented: “Our heated base layers are perfect for anyone who works in cold conditions – whether outdoors or indoors. The four heat zones cover the front waist, top centre of the back and both forearms, providing effective and welcome warmth that will allow users to carry out their work more comfortably, all year round.”


The unisex DCX200 and DCX201 heated base layer shirts are available in a range of sizes, from XS to 3XL and join a growing line-up of heated jackets and vests from Makita, which are ideal for the colder months.
