MAKITA HP332 CXT 10.8V COMBI-DRILL - SPEC, FEATURES, BENEFITS - SHOP HERE

MAKITA HP332 COMBI DRILL




With a battery footprint that's smaller than a credit card, and a total weight of just over a kilo, the HP332 is the sort of combi-drill you can carry with you all day every day, and not even notice it's there. Until you need to use it, that is, at which point you'll have an ultra-compact tool that's ideal for drilling into masonry for fixings, or punching holes into wood with an auger bit up to 28mm in diameter.

The compact size and weight is due to the brushless motor, giving you longer runtimes, more power and a longer service life than ever before.

The 20 screw driving torque settings take full advantage of the two levels of torque available: 35Nm hard and 21Nm soft. This give you all the control you need over your screwdriving applications.

It's available with the new fast charger (fully charge one of the supplied 2Ah CXT batteries in just 30 minutes) or body-only, ready for you to slot a CXT battery in.

MAKITA JV101 CXT 10.8V CORDLESS JIGSAW - SPEC, FEATURES, BENEFITS - SHOP HERE

MAKITA JV101 JIGSAW



Via the 3-stage pendulum action, plus straight cutting, this compact jigsaw will give you 65mm cutting capacity into wood or 2mm into steel and 4mm into aluminium.

The motor moves the blade at 2900 strokes per minute, variable of course, providing a stroke length of 18mm. The base plate us been upgraded from the older 10.8v jigsaw to a tougher, rigid aluminium construction which will bevel to 45 left and right. We also find a blower function and finger guard at the front of the saw.

Using the relevant adaptor, you can hook the JV101 up to a dust extractor for clean cutting. It's supplied as a body-only unit, or you can pick it up with two 2Ah CXT batteries, the fast charger, a jigsaw blade and a side fence.

MAKITA DF032 CXT 10.8V DRILL DRIVER - SPEC, FEATURES AND BENEFITS - SHOP HERE

MAKITA DF031 DRILL DRIVER



This is a brushless direct drive tool, with a hex chuck instead of the common 10mm keyless version. As a result, this is a ridiculously compact drill driver, barely wider than your fist.

However, it still packs plenty of punch via the two speed gear box and brushless motor, giving you 21Nn soft and 35Nm hard torque, available over 20 torque settings. The variable speed trigger provides up to 1500rpm, allowing you to drill holes up to 28mm into wood and 10mm into steel.

Again, this is the sort of tool thanks to it's ultra-compact size and feather weight that you can carry on your belt all day, and the supplied fast charger and two 2Ah CXT 10.8v batteries means it'll handle all the jobs you through at it with virutally no down-time.

MAN THATS HANDY on Tue, 26 Jul 2016 18:25:51 +0100 (Likes: 0 / Dislikes: 0

I have quite a few Makita tools and they are great.The cordless jigsaw is very cool, it stops you cutting the cord, which I have done a few times. I also have a Makita circular saw that I have been cutting with for 7 years and it is still going strong. Being a professional handyman I use these tools a lot and you can't fault Makita's quality. They make very good tools.
