Makita DMR107 Job Site Radio Review

The Makita DMR107 Jobsite Radio comes complete with AC power adaptor and can be charged from your power tool batteries or plug it directly from the mains power outlet. This model is also compatible with Makita 10.8v CXT ‘Slide’ type batteries.

What I like with this model is the way it’s designed for the workplace. It’s equipped with rubber bumpers on all its four corners, so the radio can well cope up with rough handling in the workplace, as well as, the working environment with its sturdy protection frame. DMR107 also has a powerful sound, so no matter the noise in the workplace, I can still hear my favourite tunes.

Makita has truly enhanced their latest jobsite radio models; this one has a twin 76mm speakers and forceful amplifier. I would say that this is the best jobsite radio I have ever seen and tried. I just love its amazing sound quality plus it also has a charger for my Makita power tool batteries. How useful is that? With this feature, I don’t have to be concerned of my tools running out of power in the middle of a task and not being able to charge them. This element is actually a huge advantage, especially for those that work away from the main outlet. I can also charge my Smartphone via USB plug-in. You can also use it to charge your Smartphone through the DC outlet or via USB plug-in. Play music from your phone or USB by connecting the device into the AUX-in ports.
