Adding to its impressive range of cordless tools, Makita has launched its DHR182ZJ 18v Brushless Rotary Hammer LXT. Benefiting from a brushless motor and patented battery technology, the tool benefits from excellent run times and extended life.

Powered by a single 18V lithium-ion battery, the new rotary hammer benefits from three operating modes – Rotary only (RO), Hammer only (HO) and Rotation with Hammer (RH) to suit a range of high performance demands. This heavy duty tool also comes with a variable speed trigger, constant speed control, and forward and reverse rotation.

The DHR182ZJ also comes equipped with anti-vibration technology (AVTTM), an ergonomic soft grip and Makita’s new Auto-Start Wireless System (AWS) – which connects to compatible dust extractors via Bluetooth, ensuring the tool minimises the hazards of vibration and dust, and meets construction site regulations.

The machine can also be fitted with the DX05 dust extraction attachment, which is recommended for use when conventional dust extractors are not available.

“The latest addition to our range of rotary hammers, the DHR182ZJ 18v LXT Brushless Rotary Hammer is supplied as a body only model in a Makpac Connector Case that will allow construction workers to work on a range of applications with excellent run times,” says Matthew Chilton, Product Manager for Tools at Makita.

“It is also the latest in our brushless motor offering; extended run-time and power, the smaller motor has also allowed us to manufacture this tool to be compact and lightweight, making it more comfortable to operate when used for extended periods of time. Our patented battery technology also allows the tool, battery and charger to communicate intelligently, ensuring protection of all elements and extending the tools life cycle.”
