The new and eagerly awaited Makita DBN600ZJ 18V LXT finishing nailer is setting new standards in nailing technology. Engineered for 16 gauge finishing nails, from 25 to 60mm in length, this nailer is particularly suitable for second fix construction site installations such as applying skirtings, architraves and doorways, and electrical fixtures and plumbing connections, which require a neat, professional visual appearance.
Powered by a single 18V Makita Lithium-Ion battery the powerful motor will deliver up to 800 shots on a fully charged 4.0Ah battery. The magazine has the capacity to carry 110 nails and when empty the machine weighs a comfortable 3.4kg. A conveniently designed window allows for easy checking of the remaining quantity of nails.
Operator accuracy and firing efficiency are the keys to the new Makita finishing nailer. The easy-to-see slim tip nose is not shielded from view and the driving depth is easily adjusted by dial, while tool-less nail jam clearing adds speed and efficiency and reduces downtime. The anti-dry firing mechanism ensures that a nail is in the ready position; if the magazine is empty or the nails are not positioned correctly the nailer will not operate saving battery life and enhancing safety. The ergonomically designed grip, LED job light and belt clip ensures operator comfort and convenience, together with low vibration and sound level.
This new tool can be used in either bump-fire mode – where the nose is bumped against the target material to activate it – or in sequential mode where the tip is placed on the target and the trigger pulled. Mode selection is by rocker switch and a bumper ensures that the workpiece is fully protected from scratches and damage.
Recoil has been substantially reduced in this new Makita nailer allowing better tool control in rapid applications. It also reduces the effort required from the operator to control the nailer when constantly repositioning the tool for the next shot.
The Makita DBN600ZJ cordless, gas-less nailer ensures low running costs while downtime during low temperatures and cold weather working will be a thing of the past. It is supplied as a body only machine in a rugged, sturdy and protective Makpac case.
