Here’s a look at the Makita Black Friday 2023 tool deals we’ve come across so far.
You can find these tools at Home Depot’s holiday deals center in stores and online, and at independent dealers as well.
There are fewer deals this year, but there’s the potential for new additions later in the season.
The prices are accurate at the time of this posting, and hopefully further discounts are on the way.

I do NOT recommend this deal.
Based on my experiences across the industry, I expect for Makita’s 18V 5Ah battery to have higher performance Li-ion cells than their 6Ah battery.
I would choose Makita’s 5Ah battery over this 6Ah battery 100% of the time, and would recommend the same to others.
Buy a Makita 18V Starter Kit, Get a FREE Tool or Battery – $199 at Home Depot
With this deal, you can get a starter kit with charger and 2x 5Ah batteries, and opt for a free bonus 5Ah battery or cordless power tool.
The free bonus tool options have brushed or brushless motors.
Which do you think is the better deal?
$199 for 3x 5Ah batteries for 15Ah total charge capacity (plus a charger and tool bag)?
This adds to why I don’t recommend Makita’s 6Ah battery 2-pack deal.
Buy a Makita 18V Combo Kit for $399, Get 2 FREE Tools – $399 at Home Depot
Last year’s deal was for a similar combo kit but with 4Ah batteries, and it was bundled with a free bonus battery and 1 choice of free tool, for $339.
I had really hoped Makita would offer an XGT promo this year, where you could get a free tool with a cordless kit or combo kit buy-in, but that didn’t happen.
Buy a Makita XGT Drill and Impact Driver Combo Kit + 1 FREE Battery – $469 at Home Depot
The tools weren’t on display at my local Home Depot store yet, but the deal is live online.
Last year’s deal featured a lower price and came with (2) free bonus batteries.
Buy a Makita XGT Chainsaw Combo Kit + 1 FREE Battery – $599 at Home Depot
Buy a Makita XGT Blower Combo Kit + 1 FREE Battery – $399 at Home Depot
Makita 18V X2 Cordless Rear-Handle Circular Saw + 2 Batteries – $299 at Home Depot
This had been a very regular deal, and it’s usually a pretty good value.
The same deal was $259 last year.
I found this display at my store last year. Hopefully they sell through this year’s inventory, despite the higher price.
Maybe if we wait the price will be discounted from $299, but I doubt it.
Makita 18V Oscillating Multi-Tool – $249 at Home Depot
Makita 18V Sub-Compact Circular Saw – $189 at Home Depot
Makita 18V Sub-Compact Cordless Drill & Impact Kit – $169 at Home Depot
The OMT is labeled as a “special buy” online, and I’m thinking it will be discounted further for Black Friday.
Last year, the OMT was $199, and the circular saw was $139.
Makita 18V 2Ah Battery – $99 at Home Depot
Home Depot has a 2-pack of Milwaukee M18 High Output 3Ah batteries for $99. They have a similar deal for Dewalt, and also a $99 deal on the Dewalt 20V Max compact PowerStack battery.
Makita 18V 8-Tool Cordless Power Tool Combo Kit – $399 at Home Depot
Makita 18V Cordless Stick Vacuum Kit – $129 at Home Depot
Will there be Better Tool Deals for Black Friday?
I sure hope so.
Last year, Makita’s XGT cordless circular saw kit was $429 at Home Depot and other retailers, and you also got (2) free batteries. Right now, it’s $449 with ZERO free batteries.
There also don’t look to be any air tool or air compressor deals this year.
