The DHR264Z is identical to the DHR263Z but features a quick change chuck for non masonry drilling. By pulling back the SDS chuck and turning it ¼ turn it comes away from the main unit leaving a spline attachment, this unit is supplied with a high quality steel keyless chuck which can be fitted with a pull back and ¼ turn in the opposite direction.
By running 2 x 18v batteries in series Makita have managed to get the same power as a 36v machine while managing to keep the flexibility of running all your tools on the 18v Lithium Ion platform and compatible with 1.5Ah, 3Ah, 4Ah and 5Ah 18v batteries.
Featuring a powerful 36v DC motor this machine has enough power to drill holes up to 26mm in concrete 54mm TCT core and 65mm TCT core, a vibration absorbing handle with rubber grip gives excellent control and the balance is what you have come to expect with Makita tools. This is a true 3 function machine with rotary hammer for masonry drilling, rotary only for drilling steel, timber and diamond cores plus hammer only mode for masonry chiselling and a 40 position bit holder allows for the perfect chisel angle to be achieved.
The motor stops automatically when one of the batteries capacity falls below a certain limit and a LED warning light indicates which battery needs replacing/recharging. A LED job light illuminated the work area when the trigger is operated and the after glow feature keeps the light on for around 12 seconds once the trigger has been released.
Other features include a safety clutch to prevent the unit from "snagging" and "XPT" (extreme protection technology) prevents the ingress of dust and water.
