MAKITA ANNOUNCES NEW 18V LXT WALL/FLOOR SCANNER

The DWD181 provides best-in-class accuracy for detecting objects up to 7" deep

The 18V LXT® Wall/Floor Scanner detects objects up to 7” deep in a variety of base materials.

November 17, 2020, La Mirada, CA – Makita USA, Inc., manufacturer of high-quality professional tools and accessories, is proud to announce the introduction of the 18V LXT® Wall/Floor Scanner (DWD181ZJ / DWD181R1J). The scanner detects objects in concrete and masonry surface to assist in finding a location for cutting, drilling, or coring.
 
It is ideal for MEP, HVAC, drywall, ceiling, and general contractors, as well as glaziers, elevator installers, and millwork carpenters. The scanner is capable of detecting a variety of embedded objects including metals, wood, plastic, and shielded electrical wire up to 7” deep.
 
The purpose of surface scanners is object localization, the ability to locate any embedded objects in base material. Base materials include concrete, block, drywall, and wood. Object localization shows where not to drill or cut, thereby avoiding compromising the purpose of the embedded object. The DWD181 is a highly versatile multi-material and multi-surface scanner.
 
The scanner provides best-in-class accuracy, with a detection accuracy of +/- 3/16”. The user interface displays center, edge position, and relative width and depth of embedded objects. The Multi-Detection Mode allows for scanning in up to three parallel surface positions, ideal for detecting objects running diagonally or detection affirmation.
 
The laser guide allows for straight travel across the scanned surface and a vertical center position for increased accuracy. The scanner also features a large 4” illuminated color display for improved clarity and L.E.D. light.
 
The DWD181 is durable, with a rubberized over-mold for increased durability. It is dust and water-resistant with an IP54-rating. It also features Makita’s exclusive Extreme Protection Technology (XPT) for improved dust and water resistance in harsh conditions.
 
With one 18V LXT 2.0Ah Battery (BL1820B), the scanner gets up to 9 hours of continuous run time. When using a 18V LXT 6.0Ah Battery (BL1860B), the scanner gets up to 28 hours of continuous run time.
