Makita USA Inc. has announced the release of the company’s first ever 36-volt cordless tool, the 36V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 1-inch Rotary Hammer Kit, model BHR261. The new BHR261 was engineered to deliver the speed and power of a corded 1-inch SDS-Plus rotary hammer, with the added flexibility of cordless operation.
The BHR261 has a Makita-built motor that delivers up to 1,200 rpm and up to 4,800 bpm for speed and power. It has three modes of operation: rotation only, hammering with rotation, and hammering only. The built-in torque limiter ensures stable torque control. In addition, the one-touch sliding chuck enables easy bit changes and the built-in LED illuminates the drilling surface for improved visibility.
The hard-hitting BHR261 has enhanced durability features, so the tool beats up the work surface, not the tool or the tool user. It has an ergonomically designed vibrationabsorbing handle and a large two-finger trigger for reduced operator fatigue.
