Product Profile – Makita

With over 100 years’ experience in the power tool market, Makita products are recognised globally for both their performance and quality, beyond this however, Makita’s vision is for societies and global communities to come together and develop for themselves and future generations. By providing the tools, Makita seeks to ensure that nothing seems impossible. And with the new XGT range of cordless, high performance 40V Max tools tooling efficiency has never looked more promising.

The XGT range of cordless, high performance 40V Max tools are accompanied with two models of rotary hammer, a new combination drill and an impact driver which is ideal for heavy duty applications where cordless tools may have previously proved inadequate. All four new products benefit from Makita’s advanced brushless motor technology.

Meet the new range

The HR003G and HR004G 40V Max Brushless Rotary Hammers offer users exceptional performance with speeds up to 980 revolutions per minute (rpm) and up to 5000 blows per minute (bpm) of hammer action. They also feature a variable speed trigger and three function options – rotary hammer, rotary only and hammer only, making these tools versatile and easy to adjust to each task.

The HR004G also comes equipped with a Quick Change Chuck to make switching between drill bits a fast and simplified process. Both machines are equipped with Makita’s Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT) for enhanced operator comfort and safety.

The highly versatile HP001G Combi Drill has been designed to be compact and easy to handle. It has a variable speed trigger and two mechanical gears with a broad range of clutch settings – 41 in gear one and 21 in gear two, simplifying the process to finely adjust the output for the task at hand.

Adding to this – the HP001G has a capacity of 20mm in steel and masonry and 76mm in wood. In high gear it has a speed of 2,600 rpm and delivers up to 39,000 blows per minute when in impact drilling mode. To ensure the safety of the operator, the machine features Makita’s Active Feedback Sensing Technology (AFT) that turns off the motor if the rotation speed suddenly slows. This protects the user from injury if the drill bit jams in the material.

Quick facts

  • When hammer drilling into concrete the HR003G and HR004G have vibration levels of just 7.0m/s2and 6.5m/s2 respectively for increased safe trigger times.
  • To protect users from dust inhalation during operation, the rotary hammers are compatible with the DX12(HR003G) and DX14 (HR004G) dust boxes.
  • Also added to the Makita range, is the powerful TD001G Brushless Impact Driver. It delivers up to 220 newton-metres (Nm) of torque with the choice of four power modes (Max, Hi, Mid and Lo), selected using a simple one touch control, in addition to six assist modes. In the highest power mode, it has a maximum speed of 3,700 rpm and delivers up to 4,400 impacts per minute.
