ITS Expert Says

The DHR242 is a compact yet capable SDS+ drill that features a fully brushless motor for more efficient power transfer, longer runtime from your batteries, and a greatly improved overall tool life!

This SDS+ drill is an upgrade from the DHR171 because it can do all 3-Modes (Drilling, Hammer Drilling and Hammer Only (Chiselling).

This body only unit is perfect if you're building up a range of Makita cordless power tools on the LXT platform and already have batteries!

Product Description

The Makita cordless DHR242Z SDS+ rotary hammer drill comes with 3 mode function: Rotary only, Rotary Hammer and Chisel action (hammer only).

The power generated from this efficient brushless motor causes the DHR242Z to drill as fast or faster than the 24V cordless combination hammer model into concrete for higher productivity and reduces energy loss by 30%.

Producing an impressive 2.0J impact power, 4700bpm, 950rpm no load speed, drilling up to max in concrete 24mm, max in steel 13mm & max drilling in wood 27mm.

Features include a one touch slide chuck for SDS+ bits and an easy grip ergonomic handle producing maximum power thrust and providing a sure and comfortable grip in any operation in any position.

The tool body is separated into the upper and lower housings where the houses are joined with vibration absorbing cushion rubbers. Unique rubber joint construction protects the battery terminals from vibration minimising breakage or battery failures.


Features we love

    Brushless Motor

    Brushless Motors use Magnets to assist with rotation rather than carbon brushes. The use of magnets is far more efficient and doesn't create the same heat and friction that carbon brushes do, this is because there are no touching or wearing parts. Therefore brushless motors transfer more of the energy from the battery into the job at hand. Therefore your benefits of brushless motors are:

    1. No brushes to replace
    2. Increased battery runtime
    3. Small increase in power/speed
    4. Smaller and lighter tools
    5. Longer overall life of your tools
