MAKITA FINISHING SANDER NAMED A "BEST NEW PRODUCT" FOR 2008

Professional Builder magazine picks Makita BO4556K

The Makita BO4556K Finishing Sander has been named one of Professional Builder magazine\'s "100 Best New Products" of 2008.

The 100 Best New Products Award was created to recognize innovations, highlighting manufacturers that are investing in research and development. The products are judged in 10 different categories including exteriors, interiors, windows and doors.  Announced annually, these awards are chosen by Professional Builder editors based on: 
  • Technological Advances
  • Significant Product Improvement
  • New Product Lines
  • Increased Product Lines
  • Nationwide Availability
 The Makita BO4556K Finishing Sander features an ergonomically designed rubberized palm that fits like a glove with even pressure and easy control. These comfort features are combined with a 2 AMP motor that produces 14,000 OPM for fast and smooth sanding. In addition, the precision engineered all-ball-bearing construction significantly reduces vibration and noise.  It is ideal for wood workers and finish carpenters who require a best-in-class sander.
