August 17, 2021, La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc., manufacturer of high-quality professional tools and accessories, has launched the Rebar Tying Stand-Up Extension Handle (191M28-8). The extension handle connects to the 18V LXT® Rebar Tying Tool (XRT01, sold separately) and enables contractors to tie rebar from a standing position.
“The rebar tying application just got a whole lot simpler,” said David Fernandez, product manager, metalworking & concrete products, Makita U.S.A. “The 18-volt LXT Rebar Tying Tool simplifies the rebar tying process, which means increased productivity and labor savings. Now, the new extension handle further simplifies any close-to-ground tying applications by allowing contractors to tie rebar in concrete deck work without having to bend down to reach the application.”
