Makita expands CXT range with new ratchet wrench

  • 18 Feb 2020

Makita’s new cordless ratchet wrench, the WR100DZ, is a versatile, compact and lightweight tool suitable for use in a wide range of applications.

With a number of innovative features included, this new wrench has been designed to guarantee optimum efficiency and operator productivity.

The WR100DZ utilises Makita’s CXT Compact eXtreme Technology (CXT), making this an ultra-compact and lightweight (1.0kg – 1.2kg) machine, suitable for extended use.

The inclusion of a LED job light means the WR100DZ can light up the project space and aid working in restricted, dark spaces, maximising productivity.

The wrench can be used for a number of applications, including automotive, manufacturing, building, HVAC and fabrication.

For ease of operation, the WR100DZ features a variable speed trigger to easily control the speed and a trigger lock.

This lock prevents the trigger from being accidentally pulled, which also improves operator safety by preventing the tool from being accidentally turned on. 

The locking position also allows for operation as a hand ratchet, when the motor is not engaged, so the operator can run-up the nut using the machine without overtightening and then add that final bit of tension by hand. 

The WR100DZ is supplied with two socket adaptors (6.35mm square drive and 9.5mm square drive), that can be removed to convert the tool into a pass-through ratchet wrench.

This is ideal for tightening 13mm nuts onto long threaded bolts, such as a threaded rod. The WR100DZ also includes a reversing lever, which means the tool can rotate both clockwise and anticlockwise.

Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita, commented: “The WR100DZ has been designed with ease of operation in mind; the inclusion of CXT means its compact, lightweight design improves handling in tight spaces and overhead applications and enables operators to use the tool for extended periods of time with minimal fatigue and with maximum control.”

The WR100DZ is a 12Vmax machine with a no-load speed of 0-800rpm and maximum fastening torque of 47.5Nm. The tool produces vibration of 2.5m/s2 and sound pressure level of 74 dB(A).
