Makita has introduced the18V LXT Brushless Impact Driver.
The DTD171 18V LXT Brushless Impact Driver delivers high-end performance in a compact and lightweight package. Suitable for use across a number of high-intensity tasks, the new tool has a max tightening torque of 180Nm, meaning it ranks as the company’s most powerful cordless impact driver. The tool has been fitted with an ergonomic soft grip and number of highly functional features.
It features an electronic four-stage impact power selection, as well as four separate assist modes. These assist modes have been specifically tailored for use on particular tasks, such as a T-mode for thin metal plates and a bolt mode. With a quick mode switching function, the tool can shift from one task to another without having to interrupt work, helping tradespeople to progress jobs at a far faster rate.
The functionality is further improved with the addition of a variable speed trigger, which allows tradespeople to exert more or less power as they desire. Additional features, such as one-touch bit installation and twin LED job lights help tradespeople to work without interruption and make working in areas of poor visibility far easier.
As with all of Makita’s products the tool comes with a three-year warranty if you register online.
