Two new heated base layers have been added to Makita’s range of job site apparel. Powered either with Makita’s 18V LXT battery or the 12Vmax CXT battery, the new garments have been designed to help professionals stay warm when working in cold, harsh job site conditions.
The garments feature four dedicated heat zones (front waist, both forearms and back) for wide heat distribution and three heat settings to adjust to changing weather conditions. Makita says the new garments can provide continuous heat for up to 33 hours (when used on the low setting with the BL1860B 6Ah LXT battery – sold separately).
Both base layers are made from elasticated fabric to allow unrestricted movement, are machine washable and have a simple switch on/off button that is accessible at the front. The DCX200 is a pullover style shirt with a round neck, while the slip on DCX201 features a half zip with a stand-up collar.
The new long-sleeved base layers can be powered by Makita’s 18V LXT or 12Vmax CXT batteries which can be placed in a battery holder attached to the waist belt.
Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita UK commented: “Our heated base layers are perfect for anyone who works in cold conditions – whether outdoors or indoors. The four heat zones cover the front waist, top centre of the back and both forearms, providing effective and welcome warmth that will enable users to more comfortably carry out their work, all year round.”
