Makita U.S.A., Inc. has introduced its new 18V LXT Brushless 6,000 RPM Autofeed Screwdriver.
According to Makita, the Autofeed Screwdriver delivers superior fastening speed to handle a variety of materials and applications.
“The Autofeed Screwdriver is a great addition to the lineup of fastening tools in the LXT® system,” said Rudy Jansen, residential construction product manager, Makita U.S.A., Inc. “The Autofeed Screwdriver can handle a variety of drywall, decking, and framing applications faster, allowing the user to increase productivity with less fatigue.”
The Autofeed Screwdriver uses a Makita-built brushless motor to achieve a maximum fastening speed of 6,000 RPM and can be used in a variety of work environments. It can drive up to 2,250 screws with Push Drive Technology on a single charge of an 18V LXT 5.0Ah Battery.
Push Drive enables the user to operate the tool but only has the motor running when the fastener engages for longer run times and reduced noise.
Switching from a work environment that requires different materials to be installed is achievable with the Autofeed Screwdriver as it can accept screws ranging from 1” to 2-3/16”.
The depth that the fastener is installed can be adjusted using a one-touch wheel that allows the fasten to either sit at the surface of the material or below depending on the application.
Engineered for continuous use, the Autofeed Screwdriver is both compact and ergonomic at only 15-5/8" long and weighs only 4.9 lbs. (with battery) for reduced operator fatigue.
The handle is designed with the user in mind with a comfortable rubberized grip and as well as a lock-on button for continuous use.
