Three new tools have joined Makita’s high-performance 40Vmax XGT range and all feature their highly efficient brushless motor technology and have been engineered to bring the benefits of cordless technology to high-demand applications. These tools offer the flexibility and improved safety of cordless power without compromising on delivering results for the highest demand tasks and in the toughest environments.
The HR005GZ01 40VMax Brushless Rotary Demolition Hammer offers rotary hammer and hammer-only operating modes and is compatible with SDS-MAX chisels, drill bits up to 40mm and core bits up to 105mm. It also features a variable speed trigger and delivers speeds up to 500 revolutions per minute, as well as up to 2,900 blows per minute of hammer action.
Not only this, but the HR005GZ01 makes its usage easier and safer. It features Active Feedback sensing Technology, which allows for additional protection by shutting itself down if the rotation speed reduces suddenly. Its Anti-Vibration Technology also helps to reduce the levels of tool vibration and extended safe trigger times. As a result, the new Rotary Demolition Hammer has a vibration level of just 5.0m/s² when hammer drilling, making the use of the tool safer but also more comfortable.
The versatile LS002GZ01 40VMax Brushless 219mm Slide Compound Mitre Saw has a 60° set mitre range to both the left and the right, as well as a 48° bevel range in each direction, allowing for ease and accuracy when cutting as required. Large workpieces are not a struggle for the LS002GZ01 either, thanks to Makita’s Deep and Exact Cutting Technology. It also offers improved dust collection when fitted to an extractor, making cutting mess-free and stress-free. Other control features include soft start and constant speed control functions, as well as an electric brake to stop the blade in seconds every time.
The third and final addition to the 40VMax range is the GA038GZ07 Brushless 230mm Angle Grinder. Its 230mm wheel diameter makes it the largest angle grinder in the XGT range and is perfect for the highest demand applications. It is also very simple and comfortable to use thanks to its ergonomic soft grip on the side handle and tool body which can be mounted on either side to suit user preference. Additionally, the wheel cover position can be effortlessly adjusted to suit the user, and requires no tools to do so, which consequently makes working easier and faster.
All three of these new additions to the XGT range offer Makita’s brushless motors and Auto-Start Wireless System (AWS) functionality when fitted with an optional AWS chip. The brushless motor reduces friction and wasted energy to a minimum, consequently maximising performance and extended run-times. The AWS function also allows the tool to connect to compatible dust-extractors via Bluetooth, which means the extractor can run automatically while the tool is in use, allowing for a cleaner and healthier working environment by making dust management simple.
The HR005GZ01 Rotary Demolition Hammer, LS002GZ01 Slide Compound Mitre Saw and GA038GZ07 Angle Grinder are all currently available to purchase as body-only, with options that include batteries and chargers to be launched soon.
