Makita adds two new job site radios to its accessories range

Makita UK has expanded its accessories range with the addition of two new radios – the DMR301 and MR007G. Perfect job site companions, as well as delivering outstanding output, they've also been designed to withstand tough conditions. Even better still, the DMR301 can be used to charge Makita’s LXT and CXT batteries for added on site efficiency.

DMR301 Bluetooth DAB/DAB+ job site radio
Compatible with both LXT and CXT batteries, this is the first job site radio in Makita’s line-up to offer battery charging, when powered by mains using an AC adaptor. Thanks to its dual power functionality, professionals can use the same LXT or CXT batteries to power their tools and accessories on site, as well as keeping batteries charged across the working day to maximise efficiency. The DMR301 can also wirelessly connect to mobile devices via Bluetooth - within a 10m range - and features two USB output ports for charging mobile phones. To ensure it can withstand tough job site conditions, the DMR301 is dust- and shower- proof (IP64 rated) and includes elastomer bumpers and metal pipes for added durability. The swivel mount, soft bend antenna, also minimises breakage and/or loss. When powered using a 6.0Ah 18V LXT battery, it's capable of delivering 25 hours' entertainment, and for those looking to unwind at the end of the working day, the DMR301 is even equipped with a built-in bottle opener.


MR007GZ02 DAB/DAB+ job site radio
Just in time for Christmas, the MR007G DAB/DAB+ radio is now available in a special edition red finish. The MR007G is compatible with Makita’s LXT, XGT and CXT batteries and can also be mains powered using an AC adaptor jack. Due to its IP65 rating, meaning it's dust- and shower-proof, this radio is ideal for use on construction sites and also includes elastomer bumpers. The MR007G can be wirelessly linked to mobile devices via Bluetooth - within a 10m radius - and includes a USB port for charging mobile devices on site.

Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita, said: “We're dedicated to offering tradespeople a wide range of products that make working on site easier, safer and with these new products, more enjoyable. Customer feedback is at the heart of our product development and the new radios are testament to this – the battery charge option using our radios is in high demand and we're delighted to now offer this functionality with the DMR301.

“Spanning power tools, garden machinery products and a huge selection of accessories, the Makita range has something for everyone. With our cordless products, professionals can now change between tools and tasks, as well as tools and accessories, effortlessly.”
