Posted by Neil Bruce - August 14, 2009
Metabo Power Tools are renowned for their quality power tools and they've recently extended the range of cordless lithium ion machines
The range includes 14.4 volt LT drill/driver, combi drill and impact driver, LTX drill driver and combi drill, 18 volt LT drill/driver, combi drill and impact driver, LTX drill driver and combi drill. They plan to add more tools later including reciprocating saw, circular saw and 24 volt SDS plus hammer.
Whats special about this new LT and LTX range?
Batteries - the batteries have electronic protection which unlike other battery protection actually monitors the individual cells condition and status while working and charging. This means that whenever needed the battery cells are always 100% fit for the job and will work together to get the job done. The lithium ion batteries also feature discharge and overcharge protection as well as overheat and overload shut down.
Electronic switch - The rubber coated switch featuring soft start, variable speed and quick stop. These features and the improved technolgies behind them help towards extending the life of the machine.
Impuls switch - Impuls function with flashing LED status display. Metabos unique impuls function (boost puls switch) provides short bursts of bosst torque through the drill bit. This makes finishing off difficult screws, extracting difficult screws or starting off holes in polished surfaces far quicker and easier than you'd normally expect.
New Motors Concept - With increased performance and reduced size and improvements in motor cooling and motor overload (burn out) protection these new machines are sure to last much longer than their predecessors.
LT Class Motors - Improved power density enabling more compact size. Optimised ventilation which allows for lower temperatures so lengthens the life span. Improved cooling for longer periods of use.
LTX Class Motors - 4-pole motor for enhanced precision and durability. Stronger magnets improve torque and power. Up to 75% more efficiency. 4 carbon brushes instead of 2 give increased torque output.
Ergonomic Design and Housing - Modern design improving balance and grip. New gear speed selection switch positioned to enable single handed use. All metal gear box (no plastic parts). New clutch reduces machine length. Slide on batteries.
The LT range are suited for medium duty professional applications such as woodworking, interior construction and installation. The weight of the machines is low.
The LTX range are suited for heavier duty applications in the construction industry but still benefit from being lightweight and compact.
