A 15-piece combo kit from Makita, the thing that every man wants without knowing he wants it.
Okay so we all know just by looking at it we want it, but are these tools all that impressive or is it over-hyped?
A question I sure want answered, so off to the stores I went to try and get my hands on a Makita LXT1500 15-piece Combo Kit and write this “review”. Success.
It is indeed an impressive arsenal of tools just by looking at the variety of 15 different, powerful tools that look like they could build another Titanic all on its own! Okay, not the best example, -moving on. All jokes aside, a DIY power tool combo Kit could be exactly what you need to start your very own small time business, which is something to seriously consider if you see yourself as the ultimate DIY go-to guy. Let’s have a look at you can expect should you decide to purchase this combo from Makita.
When you head over to Amazon where they have it on sale right now, -you’ll notice quite a number of review headers popping up, reading something along the lines of “Awesome”, “Perfect set” and “Lot’s of great stuff”. That pretty much sums it for those of you in a hurry not interested in all the technical specs. It looks promising looking at the real buyer reviews, people who spent $1K+ on a DIY combo kit. You know what they say, the more people pay the more difficult they become to please, -and these buyers seem a happy bunch if you ask me.
