30 Nov A Whole New Line of Impact Bits
Makita’s new Impact XPS® bits are designed to handle high torque demands, and the company says they last up to 90x longer than standard bits. The machined bit tips fit screws with minimal variance, and the built-in pulse torsion rings distribute force and prevent breakages. The carbon alloy steel blend flexes, too, for a longer lasting bit. The Impact XPS® line is designed for use with high-torque impact drivers, and Makita’s new Insert Bit Holder is ideal for that use. It offers added holding power and is engineered to allow the torsion section of the bit holder to flex under load, taking pressure off the bit tip for increased durability in high torque applications. A new Magnetic Nutsetter is designed to drive hex head nuts and self-tapping screws in a variety of applications. Its hex shank allows for convenient use with high-torque impact drivers and driver-drills, and flat edges at the hex opening provides full contact with flanged hex head screws. A magnet allows for easy one-handed operation. And Makita’s new Impact XPS® Socket Adapter is also designed for use with the new high-torque impact drivers. The chamfered edges of its square drive end allow for easy installation, and a retention ball helps secure the socket. The high-quality steel construction provides increases durability and features a matte nickel surface for corrosion resistance.
