#1 - Overmoulded Grips for Great Ergonomics

All power tools should be easy on the hand. And Triton has made sure it's designed its tools around the simple but effective principles of good ergonomics.

Hence the rubberised overmoulded grip which aids in handling the tools, particulary in tight or awkward spaces.

#2 - Samsung Lithium-Ion Battery Cells

The efficiency of any cordless tools lies squarely in the quality of the battery. Of course, the T12 range feature lithium-ion batteries which output 12v and are made using Samsung's power cells. The supplied charger benefits from intelligent charging, which is all about making sure the batteries live long and healthy lives while powering the tool!

#3 - Powerful Mabuchi Motors

The next factor that determines how well a power tool will perform is the motor. Triton only uses Mabuchi RS550 motors in the T12 range. This motor is compact but durable, and they're famous for being smooth operators, drawing evenly from the battery to help you get the most runtime throughout the day.

#4 - Sintered Steel All-Metal Gears

Again, durability is the key factor here, and the T12 range benefits from gears that have been precision engineered for durability and - ulimately - reliability. The act of sintering the steel used in the construction of the gears means a resistance to high temperature and slow deformation rate. Ideal for ensuring the long-life of the tools.

#5 - The Range Has The Tools You Need

In our overview of the T12 range, you'll see that it includes:

  • T12DD - this drill driver is ideal for all drilling and screwdriving applications. Featuring a 10mm / 3⁄8" removable single sleeve keyless chuck for quick bit changes, the T12DD delivers 20Nm of torque in a compact and lightweight design for continuous work in confined areas. Available also in the T12TP Twin Pack. Watch our video demo here
  • T12ID - available as part of the T12TP, it's equipped with a 6mm / " hex bit holder for quick bit changes, the T12ID Cordless Impact Driver provides extra power and force with 80Nm of sustained torque, making it perfect for fastening, tightening and driving applications.

On top of that, and to complete your kit, the T12FL swivel head torch is available. Each of these tools comes with two 1.5Ah 12v batteries, a fast charger and a carry case (apart from the torch which is body-only). Additionally, an optional extra 3Ah 12v battery is available.

We reckon Triton's T12 range is well worth considering for when you upgrade or add to your compact power tool kit, but let us know what you think - plus any questions you may have - in the comments section below.
