New compact 18v drill driver and combi drill with brushless motors

Two new 18v Brushless motor LXT drills, the DDF483 13mm drill driver and the DHP483 combi drill, have been lauched by Makita.  Both new products are notable for their very compact size: the drill driver has an overall body length of just 162mm and the combi drill has a very neat 176mm overall length. Both are ideally suited for tight space installation work, such as kitchen and bathroom installations.

The new Makita DDF483 drill driver will run up to 1,700rpm in High mode and 500rpm in Low mode and with 20 torque settings and drill mode, this tool generates 40Nm of tightening torque in High mode and 23Nm in Low mode.  It is capable of drilling 13mm in steel and 36mm in wood. The new Makita DHP483 combi drill will generate up to 25,500ipm (impacts per minute) in High mode and 7,500ipm in low mode and is capable of punching a 13mm hole in masonry and steel, and 36mm in wood.

These two new Makita 18v tools are powered by the innovative Brushless motor which generates less friction and heat, delivering maximum machine performance and longevity. Both offer 20 torque settings plus drill mode which is selected by the single sleeve keyless chuck; have 2-speed mechanical gear train for rugged reliability; an electric brake; twin LED job light; ergonomically designed soft-grip handle and convenient belt hook.

The power and compact design of these two new Makita tools will prove popular with many tradesmen and both products are supplied in body only form in rugged MAKPAC cases.
