Makita launches 18v brushless rotary hammer

Adding to its range of cordless tools, Makita has launched its DHR182ZJ 18v brushless rotary hammer LXT. Benefiting from a brushless motor and patented battery technology, the tool is said to benefit from ‘excellent run times and extended life’.

Powered by a single 18V lithium-ion battery, the new rotary hammer benefits from three operating modes – rotary only (RO), hammer only (HO) and rotation with hammer (RH) to suit a range of high performance demands. This heavy-duty tool also comes with a variable speed trigger, constant speed control, and forward and reverse rotation.

The DHR182ZJ also comes equipped with Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT), an ergonomic soft grip and Makita’s new Auto-Start Wireless System (AWS) – which connects to compatible dust extractors via Bluetooth, ensuring the tool minimises the hazards of vibration and dust, and meets construction site regulations.

The machine can also be fitted with the DX05 dust extraction attachment, which is recommended for use when conventional dust extractors are not available.
