New Makita and Hitachi 18V tools spotted in Japan

Usually new tech is appears outside of the USA and eventually makes its way here. Not always but we can only hope for the best. Over at Japan, home to brands such as Hitachi and Makita, new and unique tools make their debut all the time. Recently spotted were a couple of power tools from Makita, and a new brushless power tool from Hitachi.

Info is scarce at the moment and is all in Japanese. Take a look at the YouTube videos below to get a quick look at these new tools.

Hitachi Brushless 18V angle grinder G18DBVL

No word if these will hit US shores but it is nice to tech advancing. We’ve seen brushless grinders before and its nice to see Hitachi joining the group with their new brushless grinder. Great to see new air compression technology in the form of cordless with the new vacuum pump. Would be awesome to see tech such as this with a new air compressor to power pneumatics sometime in the near future. Keep in mind the vacuum pump is not a compressor to power pneumatic tools.
