Makita makes an impact with new XGT machine

19 February 2021

POWER TOOL manufacturer, Makita, has expanded its XGT 40VMax line up with a new brushless impact wrench. The TW004G is a powerful machine that can deliver up to 4000 impacts per minute.

Powered by Makita’s 40VMax XGT technology, the TW004G (which follows on from the TW001G) is a  versatile machine that reliably delivers the power needed to tackle mid-range torque applications with a maximum fastening torque of 350Nm and nut busting torque of 630Nm. The TW004G also has a half inch Square Drive (C-ring), making it suitable for automotive applications.

Operators can choose from four power settings and six application modes, so the output can be easily adjusted depending on the task. The TW004G features a forward and reverse mode for tightening and loosening nuts effortlessly. To improve user safety, it includes an electric brake and Makita’s Auto-Stop system to make fastening and unfastening bolts safer. The constant speed control function ensures smooth operation. 

Kevin Brannigan, marketing manager at Makita, explains more: “The new TW004G impact wrench benefits from our 40VMax XGT technology, that provides operators with high output, tough design and fast charge times – to maximise user productivity and keep the machine working at optimum efficiency for longer. Powered by a brushless motor, the TW004G is also incredibly durable. As there are no moving parts within the motor causing friction, wear and tear and ongoing maintenance costs are minimised. No friction also means that no energy is lost through heat production – which increases run times and reduces the need to regularly stop to replace or recharge the batteries.”

The TW004G benefits from a compact design that makes it suitable for use in tight and awkward spaces. It is also lighter, reducing user fatigue and improving productivity. The in-built LED job light ensures clear visibility (and improved safety) when the machine is in use.
