Makita tools

Makita has added three new tools to the 10.8v CXT range in which the compact size of these high performance tools is reportedly proving valuable for confined space operations.

The PT354 CXT pin nailer can fire five alternative lengths of 23 gauge (0.6mm) nails. The magazine will hold 100 pieces of either 15, 18, 25, 30 or 35mm long nails. Key features included in this compact and lightweight 2kg nailer include depth adjustment, anti-dry-fire mechanism, high visibility nose tip, low rebound mechanism for easier long pin nailing, trigger lock and LED job light.  The PT354 is available as a body only machine.

The CP100D CXT multi-cutter has an automatic self-sharpening rotary blade that reportedly runs up to 300rpm and has a 6mm cutting capacity. The multi-cutter is said to be suitable for cutting a range of materials including: carpet, cardboard, vinyl and lino flooring, artificial grass, roofing felt, fibre-glass rendering mesh, damp-proof course, weed control membrane, tarpaulin, pallet strapping, various plastics and more.  The reportedly ergonomic soft-grip handle gives very accurate machine control and the steel base plate slides smoothly over the material. The CP100D CXT multi-cutter is available as body only or comes complete with a 4.0Ah battery, charger and tool bag.

The CF100D CXT portable, 180mm fan has three speed settings, giving a maximum air speed of 180 m/min in the highest setting, then 150 m/min and 120 m/min in the medium and low settings respectively, with corresponding run times when powered by the Makita 4.0Ah 10.8v Li-ion battery of 275 mins, 380 mins and 630 mins. The fan head can be adjusted up and down, and to left and right. This unit has a wall-hanging hook, tripod mounting and wall mounting fitting.  An AC adaptor is included to enable mains operation. This fan is available as a body only model.
