Sparks Electrical News

Makita is a well known global brand in over 40 countries and is an innovation leader, providing quality and durable products that are used and trusted by professionals on jobsites throughout the world everyday. Makita’s Lithium-Ion cordless technology has taken the local market by storm over the past number of years. Makita has produced one of the world’s largest ranges of 18 V power tools, and through its continuous research and development is constantly producing innovative new and exciting tools to enhance its range. Makita’s latest offering is the twin battery tools powered by two 18 V LXT batteries, installed in series to supply energy to the powerful 36 V dc motor drive system. The tools offer great versatility, as they utilise an existing 18 V battery and charger system.

Not only do these tools compete head-to-head with their corded counterparts but they are also a significantly more affordable option than having to purchase a 36 V tool and batteries.

Makitas continuous innovation meets customer expectation

Our South African range of both the twin 18 V LXT battery cordless and single 18 V LXT cordless tools is constantly expanding with Makita models that best fit our local market. A number of these tools include the Makita brushless (BL) motor that provides the user with more efficient energy consumption, due to the fact that there is little or no friction, enabling lower amperage for reduced heat production and greatly reduced maintenance costs. Makita’s brushless motor models are stronger, lighter, smaller, smarter and more durable than ever before.

Makita 18 V Twin Battery cordless tools, including the new 230 mm angle grinder, plunge cut saw as well as a circular saw, a mitre saw and a host of models that cater for the outdoor care market. The model that should generate the most interest in the electrical industry is the DHR263ZK Rotary Hammer.

The DHR263ZK Rotary Hammer has a three-mode operation utilising a SDS plus one touch slide chuck – rotation only, rotation plus hammering and hammering only – ensuring easy operation and handling. The built-in LED light with pre-glow and afterglow functions illuminates the workspace for greater accuracy in poor light conditions.

Measuring 350 mm in length, the DHR263ZK has a 26 mm capacity in concrete, 13 mm in steel and 32 mm in wood. It features a no load speed of 0 – 1200 r/min and delivers 0 – 4800 blows per minute. It is equipped with XPT (Extreme Protection Technology) and is supplied in a carry case. Operator comfort and more control during operation have not been overlooked. An ergonomically designed vibration-absorbing handle with sure grip reduces the magnitude of vibration and hand fatigue.

When the remaining battery capacity decreases below a certain limit, the motor automatically stops and a solid red light reminds you to replace the battery. There is one warning lamp for each individual battery.

All of the Twin Battery models are compatible with the Makita LXT 18 V 6.0 Ah (55 min), 5.0 Ah (45 min.), 4.0 Ah (36 min.) and 3.0 Ah (22 min.) batteries. The time in brackets denotes the amount of time required to recharge each battery. There are single and dual battery chargers available, as well as an automotive charger (where recharge time is, for obvious reasons, longer than the times stated above). The 18 V tool range, whether it’s a twin or single battery model, utilises the same 18 V LXT battery and charger platform.

All batteries and the charger are sold separately, as well as accessories unless otherwise stated. Using twin battery cordless technology is a simple and effective way to ensure productivity without compromising on performance, when a power source isn’t available.
