Makita celebrates 50 years of UK trading with special anniversary promotion

To celebrate a half century in the UK market, leading power tool manufacturer Makita has launched a special 50th anniversary promotion, offering end users the opportunity to claim free products with the purchase of selected items from its range.

With the purchase of either the DHP482JX14 18V LXT combi drill kit, or DHP484TJX9, or DHP485TJX8, end users can select either a free ADP05 USB adaptor to power mobile devices via their Makita LXT batteries or Makita’s 18V LXT DML186 LED torch.

Alternatively, purchasing one of the two-piece combo kits with 18V combi drill and jigsaw – either the DLX2202TJ1 or DLX2134TJ – gives the opportunity to choose between a free DMR110 DAB+ site radio or a free BL1850B 18V LXT 5.0Ah battery.

Makita has also included a free B-53811 100-piece drill and screwdriver bit set in the promotional offer, which can be redeemed with the purchase of the DHP453F001 18V LXT combi drill or the DHP485T001 brushless combi drill.

Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita UK, said: “This has been a very exciting year in celebrating 50 years of successful operation in the UK. To thank our customers, we're delighted to offer a fantastic choice of free products and we've even included some of our most popular LXT products in the promotion.”

Makita’s redemption offer runs until 31 March 2023. Customers who've purchased any of the qualifying models from an authorised dealer must register their purchase online within 28 days of making the purchase to claim their free product.
