New rotary hammer is big on power, small on size

A new rotary hammer drill has been introduced to an increasingly popular 10.8v range of power tools, all of which offer superb machine power performance coupled with compact physical size of the machines.

They are attractive to any professional tradesman working in confined spaces or for prolonged periods of use where a full size machine would prove cumbersome. The new Makita HR166D 10.8v BL rotary hammer drill, which features the sophisticated Makita Brushless motor technology, has the appearance and features of its 18v ‘big brother’ version but is a third smaller in overall dimensions.

This new rotary hammer will run up to 680rpm and generate up to 4,800 impacts per minute.  With 1.1 joules of energy the new HR166D will punch a 16mm hole into concrete; 13mm in wood and 10mm in steel.

The overall body design delivers excellent machine balance with the Brushless motor and driveline positioned directly above the battery, with the rear anti-vibration handle and side-handle providing ideal working control of this powerful but tiny machine. Weighing just 2.0kg with a 4.0Ah battery fitted, this compact and lightweight machine has electric brake, variable speed trigger and a constant speed control, and LED job light.

The SDS-PLUS chuck features the proven Makita one-touch sliding operation.  It has two operating modes selected by the rotary switch on the body. It can operate in rotary-only mode for drilling wood or metal and rotary hammer mode bringing the powerful hammer action into play. This ‘mighty mini’ 10.8v BL rotary hammer CXT will quickly become a popular selection for compact power together with Makita’s proven and robust reliability.

It is supplied complete with two 4.0Ah batteries and charger in a Makpac case, or as a body only unit for those operators with adequate numbers of 10.8v batteries.
