La Mirada, CA – Makita has released a new 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Brushless Hammer Driver-Drill, model XPH06. The new Hammer Driver-Drill delivers 35% more drilling, driving and fastening speed than the previous model, with a minimal increase in size and weight for a superior power-to-weight ratio.
18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Hammer Driver-Drill Kit (model XPH06).
The new XPH06 is engineered with Makita LXT® Brushless Motor Technology, optimized to deliver up to 50% longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life. It’s the latest addition to Makita’s expanding 18V LXT® Series, the world’s largest 18V lithium-ion cordless tool line-up* with over 70 tools powered by one 18V LXT® battery that reaches a full charge in only 30 minutes.
New Addition to Deep Line-Up of Driver-Drills
"Makita offers a deep line-up of 18 volt driver-drills, including compact models with less weight and a fast-charging compact battery, brushless models engineered for longer run time, and high-torque driver-drills for the most demanding applications," said Mario Lopez, Product Manager, Cordless Products, Makita USA. "The new XPH06 delivers over 500 inch-pounds of torque and longer run time for a wide range of applications. And at just under four pounds it has an excellent power-to-weight ratio, so contractors get a total solution."
Makita BL™ Brushless Motor Technology
The XPH06 is powered by Makita’s efficient BL™ Brushless motor, which is electronically controlled to optimize battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per charge than similar non-brushless tools. Electronic controls efficiently use battery energy to match torque and RPM to the changing demands of the application for increased power and speed when needed. And since there are no carbon brushes, the BL™ Brushless motor runs cooler and more efficiently for longer life.
Power, Performance and Durability in a Compact Size
The efficient BL™ Brushless Motor delivers 530 in.lbs. of Max Torque, with 16 clutch settings, a variable 2-speed all-metal transmission (0-400/0-1,550 RPM), and hammer and drill modes to cover a wide range of applications. The XPH06 also has an excellent power-to-weight ratio, with a compact size at 7-7/8" long and only 3.9 lbs. (with battery).
XPT for Added Durability in Harsh Conditions
For added durability, the XPH06 features Makita Extreme Protection Technology (XPT). XPT is a protective seal inside the tool engineered for improved water resistance by channeling water and dust from the tool’s key internal components. The XPT-equipped XPH06 is engineered for improved operation in harsh jobsite conditions. Ease-of-use features include a ½" keyless chuck for quick and easy bit changes. It also has a built-in L.E.D. light that helps illuminate the work surface, and a rubberized grip for improved comfort.
Versatile Design for a Range of Applications
The XPH06's percussive hammer and driver-drill capabilities are engineered for the pro that wants more features. The XPH06 will handle a range of drilling and driving tasks into wood, masonry and steel. It's ideal for any pro contractor who requires a cordless hammer driver-drill with a combination of torque and speed in a compact size.
The XPH06 is available in a kit (includes two 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Batteries and an ENERGY STAR® qualified Rapid Optimum Charger) and as a tool-only. It is also available in a two-piece combo kit, model XT248, which includes the 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Brushless Impact Driver, model XDT08Z.
