Both are ideally suited for tight space installation work, such as kitchen and bathroom installations.
The new Makita DDF483 drill driver will run up to 1,700rpm in high mode and 500rpm in low mode and with 20 torque settings and drill mode, the tool generates 40Nm of tightening torque in High mode and 23Nm in Low mode.

These two new Makita 18v tools are powered by the innovative Brushless motor which generates less friction and heat, delivering maximum machine performance and longevity. Both offer 20 torque settings plus drill mode which is selected by the single sleeve keyless chuck; have 2-speed mechanical gear train for rugged reliability; an electric brake; twin LED job light; ergonomically designed soft-grip handle and convenient belt hook.
Both products are supplied in body only form in rugged MAKPAC cases.
