MAKITA'S NEW 7.2V LITHIUM-ION COMBINES IMPACT DRIVER FUNCTION WITH ULTRA-COMPACT CORDLESS SCREWDRIVER DESIGN

February 28, 2007La Mirada, Calif. – Makita U.S.A., Inc., manufacturer of high quality industrial power tools and accessories, is proud to announce the release of its new 7.2V Lithium-Ion Cordless Impact Driver Kit, model TD020DSEW. The new tool combines the ultra-compact design of a cordless screwdriver with the function of an impact driver.
 
The TD020DSEW can drive tek screws into up to 16 gauge sheet metal, drill a 3/8” hole into hardwood, and drive a 1/4” screw with a nut setter bit. This versatile power, combined with the compact design, dual position handle, and powerful Makita impact mechanism makes this tool perfect for automotive, installation, repair, and fabrication trades.
 
The TD020DSEW Impact Driver is powered by a Makita-built motor design with dual steel ball bearings, and delivers 177 in. lbs. of max torque with 3,000 impacts-per-minute in an ultra-compact design. With its durable hinge design, the driver can be used in straight or pistol grip positions. The built-in L.E.D. work light is operated by a separate switch on the opposite side of the rocker, and provides illumination for more accurate work. The switch drive lock prevents active discharge in the case when not in use, and allows the tool to be a screwdriver in lock
mode.  
 
“Makita has been the market leader in cordless impact drivers since their US release in 1988,” said Brent Withey, Marketing Brand Manager.  “With the TD020DSEW, we used our expertise to create an impact driver in an ultra-compact design.”
 
Model TD020DSEW is a kit that includes (2) Super Compact 7.2V Lithium-Ion batteries, (1) 7.2V Battery Charger, a drill and driver accessory bit set, and tool bag.
