Kit and Tools Tuesdays - Makita launch two and six-piece combo tool kits

Tuesday 25 November 2014

Makita Combo kits offer multiple tool packages sold as a single kit, which represent exceptional value for money and provide the tradesman with a useful combination of tools. The two latest Combo kits also offer a variety of battery options from the Makita 18V Lithium-ion range including 3.0Ah, 4.0AH and the latest, long-running 5.0Ah batteries.

The new Makita DLX2040 two-tool Combo kit features the new DHP481 two-speed combi drill that will run up to 2,100rpm and deliver 31,500 impacts per minute to punch a 16mm bit through masonry. The brushless motor will give extended run time and generates up to 115Nm of fastening torque. This new Makita combi drill has a 20mm shorter body than its predecessor making it even more compact for confined spaces.

Similarly the Makita DTD129 18V impact driver has both the brushless motor giving increased run time and compact design. Generating up to 160Nm of torque and up to 3,200 impacts per minute, this 6mm hex drive tool is ideal for heavy duty site installation operations.

The new Makita DLX2040 high torque brushless twin-pack kit is delivered complete with DC18RC fast-charger in a robust MacPac case. The RMJ version of the kit includes two 4.0Ah batteries while the RTJ version comes with two 5.0Ah batteries for the longest possible operating run time.

The new Makita six-piece Combo kit, DLX6017, includes a jigsaw, rotary hammer drill, combi drill, circular saw, impact driver, torch, fast charger and three 3.0Ah Lithium-ion batteries. This complete workshop set is supplied in a rugged carry case and offers a substantial saving over the individual tool purchase prices.

The Makita DJV180 jigsaw has a 26mm stroke length and will cut up to 135mm timber. The DHR202 rotary hammer generates 2.0 joules of impact energy and can punch a 20mm hole in concrete while the DHP453 2-speed combi will drill 13mm in masonry, run up to 1,300rpm and generate up to 19,500 blows per minute. The DSS611 circular saw drives a 165mm diameter blade which will cut to 57mm at 90°. The DTD146 impact driver generates 160Nm of torque and up to 3,200 impacts per minute. The powerful BML185 torch is included in this very useful Makita DLX6017 six-tool set.
