Customer reviewsThe Makita 9031 sent by Amazon via UJC Mart is not appropriate for US since it is 100 volts
This is a great tool, except that the one I received from Amazon is a 100 volt tool made for the Japanese market. Also, the manual with it was in Japanese, not English. I called Makita several times for confirmation, talked to UJC Mart, and to a live person at Amazon. Makita very firmly told me to return the tool that listed on the plate 100 volts. They said it would operate, but not properly. I returned it and bought from a US tool company in Minneapolis. That one clearly says 120 volts on the plate, and it had a manual in English. Obviously, these are two different tools.. UJC claimed they had sent out a number of the tools just like mine but had not problem. The Amazon person I talked to said their policy regarding such issues as mine triggered an investigation only if two or more people had the same problem. And mine was the first. So please, other customers, complain The 100 volt tool will likely work for awhile then have problems, according to Makita when I called, but perhaps after the warranty expired. They were highly concerned that the Japanese models were being sold in the US.
