Power tool manufacturer Makita has expanded its range of LXT cordless tools with the launch of the DPB183Z and DPB184Z Brushless Portable Band Saws.
Compact and lightweight (the DPB183Z weighs just 3.3kg and the DPB184Z weighs 3.6kg), the saws are easy to manoeuvre around tight working spaces. Angled specifically for comfort, the DPB183Z and DPB184Z’s ergonomic handle design has been engineered to ensure ease of use in both horizontal and vertical operation, making these machines incredibly versatile. For stable and secure cutting, both machines include durable, lightweight aluminium housings, with an optional grip handle for even greater control.
Both benefit from variable speed control, which allows operators to select the ideal cutting speed for each application simply by adjusting the dial. Constant speed control also provides stable and secure cutting, as the blade speed is maintained.
The twin LED job light with pre-glow function aids operators to accurately position the blade on the cutting line, for a straight, accurate cut. This is also ensured by the adjustable blade tracking, that can be repositioned simply by turning the screw located on the tools’ housing with the hex wrench provided.
The DPB183Z can cut round pipe up to Ø66mm and square pipe up to 66x66mm, and the DPB184Z can cut round pipe up to Ø51mm and square pipe up to 51x51mm. The adjustable stopper plate means that both models can safely cut various sized materials and can easily cut close to walls and ceilings.
