LA MIRADA, Calif. – Makita has announced the winning of The Home Depot 2018 Innovation Award.

The Home Depot Innovation Award recognizes products that deliver a unique offering in market with value and efficiency across multiple home improvement categories. Makita 18V LXT Sub-Compact was named Overall Winner for giving customers maximum power in a more compact size.

Makita accepted the award at Home Depot's Annual Supplier Partnership Meeting in Atlanta.

With Sub-Compact, Makita combined the handling of a 12-volt tool with the performance and compatibility of an 18 volt tool. Sub-Compact gives users a smaller, lighter tool for work overhead or in tight spaces, but with the broad compatibility of the 18V battery.

Makita's expanding Sub-Compact line includes drills, impact drivers, impact wrenches, reciprocating and circular saws, a rotary hammer and a radio. See
