Brushless threaded rod cutter

Published:  06 July, 2018

For the first time MAKITA says it has introduced a machine to the LXT range of cordless tools designed specifically for the cutting of threaded rod. The new DSC102ZJ Threaded Rod Cutter is powered by a brushless motor and is compatible with both 14.4v and 18v Makita Lithium-Ion batteries.

The company says weighing just 3.2kg with the battery, the DSC102ZJ is ideal for overhead applications and features an automatic blade stop mechanism where the movable blades will stop at the full open position allowing the user to quickly resume operation. The threaded blades give a more accurate and burr-free cut allowing for easy nut tightening. The rod guide is adjustable to two positions, depending on the rod size, enabling precise cutting. The highly manoeuvrable DSC102ZJ will perform stable cutting even on the floor.
