Makita’s first ever introduction of a cordless rebar tying tool is now available allowing fast and efficient application of rebar tie wire and eliminates manual action. The new DTR180ZK Rebar Tying tool is powered by a brushless motor, for extended runtime and increased power, and is compatible with both 14.4V and 18V Makita Lithium-Ion batteries.
Weighing 2.6kg, with the battery, the DTR180ZK is designed to achieve the fastest method of applying rebar ties quickly and consistently and automatically delivers double loop ties for a range of construction applications such as building concrete foundations. It can be operated by a single-hand operation, in single or continuous action, allowing the other hand to remain free to adjust the position of the rebars. This tool can be used with D10, D13 and D16 rebar in varying combinations of two, three and four pieces of rebars.
The traditional method of rebar tying is by hand with a metal hook, which is fine for small areas, however, for larger construction sites the DTR180ZK will prove to be economical as it will save time and manpower while achieving maximum consistency of application.
With a maximum power output of 340w, this tying tool can be used in continuous action mode for the most efficient tying. The applicator can tie rebars simply by pushing the contact arm against the rebars when the trigger is continuously pulled. According to the condition of tying material, the tying strength can be adjusted in six stages. Using a 5.0Ah Li-Ion battery, up to 120 ties of 0.8mm diameter annealed wire can be delivered.
The DTR180ZK does not produce heat or sparks and therefore overcomes the need for operators to hold a GC07 Hot-work permit together with all the safety logistics this entails. This is required for any operation involving open flames or producing heat and/or sparks. Hot works include brazing, torch cutting, grinding, soldering and welding.
This body-only machine features a handle with soft grip, on-tool storage of hex wrench, and has low sound and vibration for increased user comfort and safety. The tie wire reel, available from Makita’s accessory range, is easily replaced by opening the reel cover.
The new Makita Brushless Rebar Tying tool complements the range of battery-operated rebar cutters, as well as the steel rod cutter, and is supplied in a robust carry case.
