Makita introduces interchangeable anvils with new cordless ratchet

Makita’s new cordless ratchet features a first for the brand, interchangeable 3/8 inch and 1/4 inch anvils for versatility.

Designed to loosen nuts and take nuts off bolts, the 12V max CXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Square Drive Ratchet Kit (RW01R1) includes the ratchet, 12V max CXT Lithium-Ion 2.0Ah Battery, 12V max CXT Lithium-Ion Charger and two anvils. It’s part of the expanding 12V max CXT series, combining performance with superior ergonomics in a compact size.

The Makita-built motor delivers 35 ft. lbs. of maximum torque and can be used manually when the motor is not engaged. With a lightweight, ergonomic design, the low profile shape provides improved handling in tight spaces and for overhead applications, according to the brand.

For longer run times, 12V max CXT cordless tools are also compatible with the 12V max CXT Lithium-Ion 4.0Ah battery (BL1041B, sold separately). 12V max CXT Lithium-Ion Batteries are engineered with a Battery Protection Circuit that protects against overloading, over-discharging and over-heating.

Makita recently won a Leader in Sustainability award for its cordless tool battery recycling programme.
