Over at pretty much every Makita retailer right now, they look to have a Father’s Day 2021 deal combo – this 18V 8-tool cordless power tool combo kit for $399, model XT801X1.

We’ve seen this particular combo kit “special buy” before – it appeared for the 2019 winter holiday shopping season and again around Black Friday 2020.

Here’s what this Makita “special buy” combo comes with:

  • Drill/driver (XFD10Z)
  • Impact driver (XDT11Z)
  • Circular saw (6-1/2″, XSS02Z)
  • Compact reciprocating saw (XRJ01Z)
  • 5″ random orbit sander (XOB01Z)
  • 3/8″ sub-compact impact wrench (XWT12ZB)
  • Blower (DUB182Z)
  • LED flashlight (DML815)
  • Rapid charger
  • 2x 3.0Ah batteries
  • Tool bag

While not any of their “latest and greatest” tools, and the batteries are Makita’s lowest capacity 10-cell battery packs, I’d say this is a very good value.

The brushless subcompact impact wrench is a nice addition, and the cordless sander and blower also look to be worthwhile additions.

If you consider that $299 is the typical price point for 4- or 5-tool cordless power tool combo kits, at least promo-priced configurations, you get quite a bit here for just $100 more.

I think that this is going to be one of the better value DIYer starter tool kits, apprentice starter kits, or value-minded Pro combo kits of the Father’s Day 2021 deals season.

Price: $399

Makita XT614SX1 18V Cordless Power Tool Combo Kit

 

Right now, Acme Tools also has a 6pc Makita 18V cordless combo kit, XT614X1, for $299.

It’s similar to the 8pc combo, but with a cordless vac instead of a blower, and without the sander or impact wrench, and you also get a slower charger. But, you save $100 if you don’t need the extras of the 8-tool combo kit. There might be other subtle differences, but I think these are it.

Price: $299
