Makita has introduced two new 10mm battery powered staplers, replacing existing models.
First up is the new Makita DST112, powered by the Makita 18v Lithium-Ion battery (3.0Ah) which generates 6,000 shots.
The Makita DST111 is a 14.4v version which will deliver 5,000 shots from the 3.0Ah battery.
Both new staplers have magazine capacity for 150 staples of 10mm width, either 7mm or 10mm depth and 0.5mm x 0.7mm wire size. These new compact, lightweight Makita cordless staplers have selectable firing modes which offer the choice between bump firing and trigger sequential control. The anti-dry- fire safety mechanism requires the nose tip to be pressured against the material for firing to take place when the trigger is pressed. A trigger lock must always be applied when the machine is put down.
The magazine is moulded from plastic to reduce the overall machine weight and has a viewing window to check remaining staple stock. The staplers have LED job light, belt-hook and soft grip ergonomically designed handle. Both staplers are available as body only options.
A new range of high quality staples is available in the Makita accessory range.
