Makita has introduced three new drill and bit sets to its accessory range, supplied in moulded trays within type 1 Makpac cases.
The cases include 66 piece, 69 piece and 71 piece sets that carry a variety of HSS drill bits, wood drills, hex shank flats and a comprehensive selection of 25mm and 50mm screw bits, nutsetters, quick change ¼” hex shank and magnetic bit holder.
Other new innovations for the Makpac system include new divider insert trays for storage of hardware, components and accessories. One tray has coloured compartments for quick and easy identification of frequently used items. An open tool box is also available for storing larger frequently used items.
Makita has introduced a two-wheeled folding trolley, the TR000000001, which will carry a variety of Makpac cases, with their contents, to a maximum load of 125kg (recommended limited to 60kg if stairs are to be negotiated). The handle pushes down into the frame and the forward carry base folds up to reduce the trolley to a convenient and compact size which will fit easily into a van or in the workshop. An adjustable webbing strap secures the stacked MAKPAC cases to the trolley while the large diameter ABS moulded wheels allow easy movement even over rough terrain on site. A new 4-wheel deck trolley, the P-83886, is also now available which is ideal to create a movable tool stack for use in the workshop or on smooth floors on site. Lockable wheels keep this trolley stable and it will carry a load of up to 100kg with ease.
Makita’s Makpac storage cases are supplied with many of the 600-plus products available in the portfolio. They can be bought independently and clipped together to make a sturdy and secure travelling pack to carry tools and accessories. These kits are available from Makita’s distributor network now.
