The DSC250 cordless re-bar cutter is an 18V tool that can be used on steel rods of between 10mm and 25mm. It has a diamond blade rather than an abrasive disc to avoid sparking during operation.

Officially launched in June, the DSC102ZJ is a threaded rod cutter that can be used with Makita’s 18V or 14.V batteries. This specialist tool is designed for applications such as work on air conditioning installations and services that are suspended from threaded bars. Using other equipment such as a hacksaw or angle grinder could damage the thread,

The DLS600Z is another recent mitre saw addition.

but the DSC102ZJ uses blades that have a threaded surface to avoid the need for remedial work. The standard jaws are of M10 size, but M8 and M6 options are available.

Makita says the cordless DHR400 rotary demolition hammer offers the same performance as a mains equivalent.

The DRT50RMJX2 router is a very compact 18V machine that can be used with a trimmer base, a tilt base or a plunge base. Also new, and showing the power available from the latest Lithium-ion batteries, the DHR400ZKU twin 18V SDS-Max rotary demolition hammer is claimed to offer the same performance as the equivalent mains tool, the HR4013C. It can bore a 40mm hole into concrete and offers 8.0 Joules of impact energy. It incorporates Makita’s AVT Anti- Vibration Technology system to give a quoted HAV level of 5.0m/s2


and it can be used in tandem with the AWS wireless system for simultaneous operation with a dust extraction unit.
