Job Site Radio
16 May 2014
By
, Devon
"During the warranty period the radio would suddenly stop working. Turn off and on again it would work. Four months out of warranty after not using it for a week the radio would not work. Read reviews ansd found this was a common fault. I telephoned Makita and their very helpful coodinator asked me to return the item for a free of charge repair. A new circuit was fitted and the radio was returned the following week. I had to pay to return the radio - this was much cheaper than having to purchase a new one or £85 repair as one review. I will only use Makita power tools. I feel I had to write a review of their service after reading negative reviews"

Great Kit
17 Aug 2013
By
, Sheffield
"Certainly the best sounding radio I've owned or heard on site. And I've been at this for nearly 30yrs. Quite impressive playing time on 18v Makita battery for a DAB radio which are usually notorious at their ability to suck the life out of batteries in the blink of an eye."

"Fantastic radio which has been used on site but also for camping and on our boat, it gives good quality sound and reliable signal even when in isolated places. Battery is easy to install and lasts a good while, all in all very pleased with it."

"Was hard to convince me that it would be worth the money but after 2 days on site with it, I'm fully convinced! Lightweight, rugged and as I've never had a DAB radio before, was amazed at how many station you can get! for middle aged farts like me, its gotta be Absolute 80s!!!
100% recommended!"

"This is a brilliant radio, I had the old version and upgraded to the DAB to get my favourite stations.
The sound quality is far superior, it goes ridiculously loud with no distortion.
I use with the lithium 3.0ah batteries and they easily last a full day at a moderate volume.
Highly recommended!"

"Don't know much about Makita’s and this type of radios but bought it for my boyfriend as a Christmas present! I ordered it through the internet and pick up at the same day from Sydenham branch! Great customer services!!
My boyfriend was over the moon! So I guess - the product is brilliant. He spend the whole Christmas with that radio next to him!!
Girls - go for it if you want some spare time to go shopping!!!!

Fantastic Sound System
27 Dec 2012
By
, Kilmarnock
"Really pleased with this, and the sound is excellent - thought about the basic model, but the DAB sound is fantastic, although a bit fiddly to set up the DAB pre-sets in the first instance. The FM Set-up is straightforward and easy - This is the machine to get for first class sounds on any site."
