By David Kitchenham Friday, 24th February 2023 0 Comments Makita Launch New Mixer and Impact Driver Makita have, for many years, believed in the idea that tools offer society opportunities to build and provide for themselves. They believe that tools give people power, the power to build and invest in a better future. Makita are back with another range of tools for their impressive XGT collection. These include a 40Vmax Brushless Mixer and a 40Vmax Brushless Impact Driver. The stats are impressive, and Makita seem to be offering another fantastic option for users. Here is everything we know about the new additions: 40VMax UT001G XGT Brushless Mixer This is the first mixer to join the XGT battery platform and it comes with a 220mm diameter blade with a M8 thread. Specifically, the UT001G is equipped with Soft Start as a safety feature to minimise load from the rotation being transferred to the operator and to reduce the risk of materials being thrown up when mixing. In addition, it benefits from a two-speed mechanical gearbox to offer 0-500rpm in low-speed mode for mixing high viscous materials like concrete, and 0-920rpm in high-speed mode for mixing medium viscous materials such as mortar, plaster and paint. Other key features include the anti-restart function, constant speed control, lock-on/lock-off function, and battery and switch covers, all of which contribute to creating a safe and robust power tool. For additional comfort, the UT001G has a double D-shaped handle with ergonomic soft grip, allowing the user to operate the tool with less fatigue. The machine has an M12 fitting as standard and comes supplied with an M14 adaptor, allowing a wider range of mixing blades to be fitted. It seems like it will be a versatile machine capable of handling most issues. 40VMax TD003G XGT Brushless Impact Driver This impressive power tool delivers up to 4,100 Impacts per minute, 210Nm Max Fastening Torque and a no-load speed of 3,700rpm – making this new product the company’s most powerful cordless impact driver yet. With 4-speed settings, theTD003G is packed with safety features, including constant speed control for consistent, smooth operation, an anti-restart function to minimise start up shock, overload protection, and an electric break. Additionally, it benefits from a trigger lock function, a reverse switch, as well as an LED job light with pre-glow and afterglow functions. Lightweight, comfortable and equipped with Assist-mode as well as a one-click tool-less collet so that impact bits can be inserted straight into the machine without having to pull back the chuck sleeve, this impact driver is designed for heavy duty power and is a must-have for professionals looking for a highly efficient power tool.
