haha, this is awesome! If I ran Makita tools, I’d be greatly tempted!

I know for sure Tools Plus is a legit company. They are the ones I bought my PM3520b from and some of the employees chipped in to help pay it.

If a camper of hunter had that I am sure they would be happy

I love coffee and if I didn’t have access to mine at home I might consider it!

Using their highest amp hour battery, you can fix one 10 oz cup in 7 minutes (3 minutes if plugged into 120 vac outlet) That’s 10 oz on 1 “fully charged” battery. I like coffee but, not THAT much. I’ll bring a thermos to the job or a real coffee maker. :)

Now lets see if they can make an 18v shop-site microwave/radio combo to go with it. Oh yeah and add that goofy tilted head light to it too. Who uses that thing anyway?

They should make it more like those heavy-duty worksite radios.

Since we are going little off of the deep end, how about a 24 volt jacuzzi?

The coffee pot’s not even the weirdest 18V Makita offering. Meet the Makita 18V folding bicycle.
