The deep­est cut of all – V2

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

This tool also de­liv­ers sig­nif­i­cant sin­gle pass cut­ting ca­pac­ity of 57.5mm. Depend­ing on your choice of ap­pro­pri­ate blade you can cut 50mm round pipe, an­gle, chan­nel, thin me­tal, rod, UNISTRUT and alu­minium with ease in one pass.

Users have also found that this cord­less me­tal cut­ter cuts very cleanly. Com­pare the fin­ished cut to the type of cut you would get from an an­gle grinder or abra­sive cut-off ma­chine and you will find your cut edge re­quires lit­tle or no clean­ing up af­ter cut­ting be­fore weld­ing.

A va­ri­ety of other Makita ad­vanced op­er­at­ing tech­nolo­gies fur­ther en­hance this cut­ter, chief amongst them be­ing Makita’s au­to­matic speed con­trol. This quite lit­er­ally changes the cut­ting mode from high speed light duty ro­ta­tion to high torque heavy duty cut­ting ac­cord­ing to both the load con­di­tions and the ma­te­rial. This en­sures op­ti­mum op­er­a­tion on ev­ery cut and very ma­te­rial, whilst also max­imis­ing blade life.

Other fea­tures are de­signed to en­hance the over­all ex­pe­ri­ence of work­ing with the DCS551.

The twin LED job light with pre-glow and af­ter-glow func­tions are a real boon when you’re work­ing on dark job sites and shady corners. The bat­tery fuel gauge gives you fair warn­ing of pend­ing recharge re­quire­ments.

The elec­tric brake is a great safety fea­ture stop­ping the blade ro­ta­tion fast but gen­tly at the same time. An er­gonom­i­cally de­signed han­dle with soft grip makes it a nice ma­chine to work with, whilst the rub­ber­ized lever makes quick and easy depth ad­just­ment sim­ple.

One other real bonus is Makita’s XPT eX­treme Pro­tec­tion Tech­nol­ogy which makes its tools ideal for use in out­door ap­pli­ca­tions and harsh en­vi­ron­ments where weather and air­borne par­ti­cles are an is­sue. XPT is en­gi­neered for im­proved dust and wa­ter re­sis­tance for op­er­a­tion in tough con­di­tions.
