Makita UK has expanded its cordless power tool range with the new 36V LXT Cordless Brushless Pressure Washer. The first of its kind from Makita, the new high Pressure Washer features a 50L storage tank enabling users to tackle dirt and grime anywhere.

Featuring a self-priming function to extract water from an external water source such as a rainwater tank, the new 2x18V (36V) LXT Pressure Washer can be supplied with water not only from a tap, tank or bucket, but features a storage case that doubles up as a 50-litre capacity water tank to create a functional pressure washer without the need for a mains water supply.

Powered by two 18V LXT batteries in series to supply energy to a powerful 36V brushless motor, this cordless pressure washer offers up to 34-minutes run time when used with two 6.0Ah LXT batteries. With two pressure selections, the solution delivers an impressive pump speed of up to 3,450rpm and a maximum water flow of 380L per hour.

Perfect for outdoor stairwells, patios, washing down vehicles, or cleaning off tools at the end of the day. As well as the standard accessories supplied with the DHW080, a wide range of useful accessories are also available (sold separately) such as the curved under-body spray lance, extension pipe set, wash brush and foam nozzle perfect for cleaning vehicles. The rotating brush head accessory is ideal for cleaning smooth surfaces such as glass or garage doors.

Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita UK said: “We are pleased to launch this useful addition to our growing cordless line up, enabling those working outdoors to work flexibly, without the constraint of cables. What’s more, as the DHW080 Pressure Washer can be used without needing to be connected to a tap, users can work with total freedom on site with the power to tackle dirt and grime in places never previously accessible.”
