Makita’s DGA456ZJ cord­less lithium-ion 115 mm an­gle grinder is just as ca­pa­ble as a mains-pow­ered grinder with the added ad­van­tage of be­ing brush­less and cord­less. It de­liv­ers an im­pres­sive 8 500 r/min from the brush­less DC mo­tor. The DGA456ZJ fea­tures a slide-type on-off switch with lock-on ca­pa­bil­ity, plus two im­por­tant safety fea­tures – an anti-restart func­tion and elec­tronic brake (kick-back user pro­tec­tion) that shuts the grinder down if the ro­ta­tion speed sud­denly slows down. Fit­ted with a bat­tery gauge, it tells you at a glance the amount of charge the bat­tery has left. This model is com­pat­i­ble with the Makita 5,0 Ah, 4,0 Ah, 3,0 Ah and 1,5 Ah 18 V lithium-ion bat­ter­ies.

Mean­while, Makita’s new ADP050 cord­less USB adap­tor can charge two Usb-com­pat­i­ble elec­tronic de­vices, or sup­ply power to a smart­phone or tablet from a charged Makita 18 V lithium-ion bat­tery.

Both items are sold sep­a­rately, as are the bat­ter­ies and the fast charger.

ton­neauk­ing ® is known for its in­no­va­tive prod­ucts, and its hard and soft tri-fold™ cov­ers are no ex­cep­tion. They’re sim­ple to use and should out­live the life of your bakkie.

Both types of cov­ers are lock­able, easy to fit and re­move (no tools or drilling re­quired) and use only top-qual­ity ma­te­ri­als.

Another prod­uct of ton­neauk­ing ® is the ton­neauseal, the only dust kit in South Africa that seals your en­tire bin and re­quires no drilling to fit. It comes in DIY kit form with ev­ery­thing you re­quire to do the in­stal­la­tion.

The spacecage, mean­while, is de­signed for those who are tired of hav­ing things rolling around in the bin, like school cases, gro­ceries and camp­ing equip­ment, and the prod­uct can ex­tend to give you more bin space.
