Makita adds cordless screwdriver to its LXT range

LEADING power tool manufacturer Makita UK has introduced the DFR551 18V LXT Brushless Auto Feed Screwdriver to its leading LXT platform. Powered by Makita’s innovative 18V LXT battery platform, the DFR551 delivers on both output and ease of use, helping to maximise on site efficiency.

With extreme speed and precision, the DFR551 is ideal for repetitive fixing tasks and rapid screw driving tasks. Trigger activated for easy use and complete control, it offers a no load speed of up to 6,000rpm and the screw feeding mechanism has been designed to reduce screw fall and ensure durability. 

With no power lead restricting movement, operators have maximum flexibility to use the DFR551 anywhere on site. The DFR551 also features Makita’s brushless motor which means that, as there are no brushes in the motor causing friction, no energy is lost through heat production. As a result, battery run time is extended – reducing the need to regularly stop to recharge or replace batteries and improving onsite productivity.

In addition, the DFR551 features Push Drive Technology. This means that the motor only rotates at full speed when the screw is pressed against the workpiece, further reducing power consumption and extending battery run time. This feature also minimises noise, which is safer for the user.

This lightweight machine has been ergonomically designed and features a rubberised soft grip handle for maximum comfort, even when used over extended periods of time. The DFR551 has also been designed to make reversing and replacing the bit effortless.

Finally, the DFR551 comes with a belt clip so users can keep it close at hand wherever they are on site.

Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita, said: “With our LXT battery platform at its core, the DFR551 18V LXT Brushless Auto Feed Screwdriver offers the output needed to tackle any task with ease, as well as the safety and improved usability benefits of cordless. With over 270 products in Makita’s LXT range, professionals can easily switch LXT batteries between power tools, outdoor power equipment and accessories depending on the task at hand.”
