Makita updates impact driver range  

Makita has introduced a new Impact Driver to its XGT range. The new tool features dual spring technology and enhanced anvil stability for less bit wobble on its new TD002G 40VMax XGT Brushless Impact Driver.  

Powered by a 40VMax XGT Li-Ion battery, the manufacturer says its heavy duty TD002G 40VMax XGT Brushless Impact Driver delivers a maximum fastening torque of 220N/m, a no-load speed of up to 3,700rpm and up to 4,600 impacts per minute. 

The new dual spring mechanism consists of two types of springs with different load capacities to adjust impact power according to the workload whilst helping to reduce recoil and vibration. The company says the design enables more comfortable operation across a wider range of applications, from light-duty screw tightening to heavy-duty metal fastening where the second spring is utilised.  

There is also one-touch bit installation which has been refined to remove resistance when inserting the bit. As such, screwdriver bits can be inserted with one hand without needing to pull back the chuck collar.  

With variable speed control and multiple operation modes; 4-speed power selection plus 6 assist modes (2x T-modes, 1x Wood mode, 3x Bolt modes), the tool can be used across a wide range of applications. The LED lights on the front of the tool head aid visibility for poorly lit conditions.  

Accessories include an eight-piece socket set, six-piece nutsetter set, and 33-piece screw bit set.  

Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita UK commented: “We pride ourselves on making continuous improvements to our range of power tools – this ethos has been central to Makita’s longevity and success over the past 100 years. What may seem like small improvements can make a big difference, and this is certainly the case with the new dual spring system in the TD002G. Users can expect greater comfort thanks to the introduction of a second spring to support heavier duty applications.”
