The new Makita LXT DBN500 brad nailer is engineered for 18 gauge finishing nails and from 15 to 50mm length. It is particularly suitable for second fix construction site installations such as doorway architraves and skirtings.
Powered by one 18v Lithium-ion battery the motor develops a maximum output of 460watts and will give approximately 1000 shots on a full charge. The magazine has the capacity to carry 110 nails and when empty the machine weighs just 3.5kg.
Operator accuracy and firing efficiency are the keys to the new Makita brad nailer. The easy-to-see slim tip nose is not shielded from view as the front body line is only just ahead of the sight line. Nail depth can be controlled by adjustment without tools and an LED job light illuminates the target point. The anti-dry firing mechanism ensures that a nail is in the ready position or if not positioned correctly the nailer will not operate saving battery life and enhancing safety.
This new Makita nailer can be used in either bump-fire mode, where the nose is bumped against the target to activate it, or in sequential mode where the tip is placed on the target and the trigger pulled. Mode selection is by simple rocker switch. A trigger lock can be used to safeguard the machine at any time.
Recoil has been substantially reduced in this new Makita nailer which provides better tool control for rapid applications; it also reduces the effort required from the operator to control the nailer when constantly repositioning the tool for the next shot.
The Makita DBN500 brad nailer is supplied with safety goggles, nose adaptor, hex wrench and is safely packaged in a type 3 MACPAC connector case.
