The advantages of a brushed motor is two major points. Point one the bearings do not wear out and point two is that the tool has a longer run time with more power when compared to a traditional tool. Due to the advantages of brushless technology, Makita is expanding their line of brushless tools by expanding their current offering with a slew of new products.
Makita’s BL Motor
The Makita LXRH011 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 1’ Rotary Hammer Kit is designed with an efficient BL brushless motor. This motor is electronically controlled in order to optimize the battery’s energy use, providing up to a 50% longer run time for each charge. The BL Brushless Motor effectively eliminates carbon brushes, enabling the BL motor with the ability to run smoother, cooler and more efficiently for longer tool life.
Suck It Up
Keeping the mess and inhalation of debris under control while operating the Makita Brushless Rotary Hammer is not a problem, Makita built in a vacuum attachment that is located on the tool itself! It captures concrete dust particles during drilling and is pretty smart, it is activated by the tool itself for the operator.
The vacuum is powered by a separate motor to maintain the tools drilling performance, as well as provide a 2 second delay, in order to capture the remaining concrete dust and debris.
The efficient HEPA filtration system works to capture the fine concrete dust particles.
The Makita 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 1’ Rotary Hammer Kit LXRH011 has been engineered with a compact design and weighs 10.2 pounds total. A variable speed trigger matches the speed of the tool to the application that is being preformed at the time for greater versatility. Additionally, multiple chisel positions have 40 differing positions to align the power tool more suitably. Preventing gear damage is a snap with the Torque Limiting Clutch, this is made to automatically disengage gears if the bit binds.
Sequential Impact Timing provides timed hammering during rotation to minimize overlapping bit impacts resulting in up to 50% faster drilling.
A Quality Battery
The Makita LXRH011 Kit comes ready with the LXT Lithium-Ion battery which works in correlation with the Rapid Optimum Charger and produces a figure of 430% more total lifetime work out of the Makita Brushless Rotary Hammer, all while boasting 3 times more cycles. The LXT Lithium-Ion battery also offers a longer run time and carries a 5 times lower self-discharge, as well as 16 firm holding contact terminals, which offers constant high power. The 30-Minute Rapid Optimum Charger also communicates with the battery’s built-in chip throughout the charging process in order to optimize the battery’s life by actively controlling the current, voltage and temperature running through the rotary hammer. It also has a built-in fan to cool the battery ensuring that this hammer will be ready for the rigors of heavy duty work, for a very long time.
The LXRH011 Makita kit has two 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Batteries, a 30-minute rapid optimum charger, a HEPA vacuum attachment , side handle, a depth gauge, and a contractors bag.
