Makita rebar tying tool goes cordless

Makita has delivered a cordless tying solution for rebar and steel rod with the 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Rebar Tying Tool Kit (model XRT01TK). The 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Rebar Tying Tool has a tying capacity of up to 5,300 ties of #3 x #3 diameter rebar on a single charge. The tool can tie multiple bars in under one second and can tie up to two #5 diameter bars or four #4 diameter bars.

The Tool features two modes of operation, single or continuous, and a BL Brushless Motor engineered to run cooler and more efficiently for a longer life than standard motors. Users can digitally adjust the tying strength to match various tension strength requirements. The XRT01ZK features an easy-load wire reel design with an automatic locking mechanism built into the protective cover. The tool delivers up to 120 ties of #3 x #3 rebar per wire reel for maximum productivity.

The kit includes the tying tool, two 5.0Ah batteries, a rapid optimum charger, hex wrench, belt clip, and tool bag.

It’s part of Makita’s 18V Lithium-Ion system, a cordless tool system powered by 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries. Makita says its 18V Lithium-Ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, “so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.”
