Kit offers two drills in one

Makita USA Inc. released its new 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Hammer Driver- Drill Kit, model BHP452. The BHP452 can be used as a driver-drill or a hammer-drill.

The Makita-built four-pole maximum torque motor delivers 450 inch-pounds of efficient torque in a compact size. At 4.2 pounds and with an ergonomic shape, the BHP452 is designed for reduced operator fatigue. The BHP452 is also equipped with an LED light that illuminates the work area. The Shift-Lock drive system sleeve quickly shifts from “hammer drill” to “driver” mode.

A related tool, the new BHP452HW is unique in both design and performance. The Makita-built motor delivers 450 inch pounds of torque in a compact design weighing only 3.6 pounds, the best power-to-weight ratio of any compact hammer driver-drill on the market. The BHP452HW has a variable two-speed motor, delivering 400 rpm and 6,000 blows per minute in low speed, and 1,500 rpm and 22,500 blows per minute in high speed.

The BHP452HW Compact Hammer Driver-Drill is powered by a Makitabuilt four-pole motor design, which generates more efficient power in a compact size.
