PRESS RELEASE: Makita Launch LXT 18V and 14.4V 10MM Staplers
- Single shot or bump-fire operation
- Adjustable driving depth
- Anti-dry-fire safety system
Makita has introduced two new 10mm battery powered staplers, which replace existing models, offering a host of advanced technical features. The new Makita DST112 is powered by the Makita 18v Lithium-Ion battery whilst the DST111 model is a 14.4v version which will deliver 5,000 shots from the 3.0Ah battery whereas the 18v 3.0Ah version generates 6000 shots. Both new staplers have magazine capacity for 150 staples of 10mm width, either 7mm or 10mm depth and 0.5mm x 0.7mm wire size.
These new compact, lightweight Makita cordless staplers have selectable firing modes which offer the choice between bump firing and trigger sequential control. The anti-dry- fire safety mechanism requires the nose tip to be pressured against the material for firing to take place when the trigger is pressed. A trigger lock must always be applied when the machine is put down. The magazine is moulded from plastic to reduce the overall machine weight and has a viewing window to check remaining staple stock. The staplers have LED job light, belt-hook and soft grip ergonomically designed handle. Both staplers are available as body only options.
A new range of high quality staples is available in the Makita accessory range.
