The biscuit or plate joiner category of the hand-held power tool world has been pretty sleepy over the past few years. But Makita has introduced a new model that, while not revolutionary, adds some nice, user-friendly features.
The PJ7000 packs plenty of power in its 5.6-amp motor, yet the motor has a relatively small circumference making it comfortable to grip, even for smaller hands. The top handle is comfortable as well. Combined, these holding features provide solid control and less user fatigue. And at just 5.5 pounds, it’s relatively lightweight – about 20 percent less than most competitor models.
