The Makita 10.8v CXT tool range has grown with the TD111D impact driver and ST113DZ CXT stapler.
The new Makita TD111D impact driver with Brushless motor delivers 135Nm of tightening torque and weighs just 1.1kgs with an overall length of only 135mm from chuck to back of body. The new impact driver will deliver up to 3,900 impacts per minute in high-mode with capacity to drive home an M14 bolt. This compact 1.1kg machine features the latest A-mode impact operation, which drives the fixture slowly to begin with until the thread tightening reacts when the full power is switched on to drive the fastening home. This mode eliminates screw cam-out and cross threading which causes the fixing to fail. In addition, the TD111D has the variable speed trigger, electric brake, soft grip handle and LED job light. The TD111D is available with charger and two 2.0Ah batteries in a Makpac connector case, or as a body only machine for those operators with sufficient 10.8v batteries.
The new Makita ST113DZ CXT stapler will carry 150 staples 10mm wide of either 7mm or 10mm length. This compact and lightweight stapler can be used in either sequential trigger mode or as a bump fire machine where the striker must hit the material for the staple to be ejected. The anti-dry-fire feature means that if no staples are in the machine it will not ‘fire’ which indicates to the operator that the stapling action has not taken place. The magazine is plastic to reduce weight and there is a window enabling a visual check on the number of staples remaining in the magazine as well as a trigger lock, LED job light and belt hook. It is only available as body only.
Heated clothing has also joined the range. The new Makita CJ102D heated jacket, with 2-way zipper, is available in four sizes from medium to XXL, and has three heat zones across the chest and back, and three heat settings which are indicated with three LEDs on the left chest pocket of the coat. The lightweight Li-Ion battery is carried in a back pocket and the battery holder is removable allowing hand washing of the coat. A USB port on the battery holder enables charging of mobile devices, ‘phones and MP3 players, and the sleeves can be un-zipped on warmer days. The new Makita CV101DZ is the vest version of the heated jacket with just two heat zones but identical performance. Both garments have three pockets and run times of 4, 7.5 and 14 hours on the high, medium or low temperature settings.
