Three functions, one machine: Metabo presents a cordless tapper with additional drill/driver function.
The cordless multi-talented GB 18 LTX BL Q I is the first battery-powered tapper with drill/driver function on the market. With this tool, Metabo offers metalworking professionals a compact and powerful solution for various applications.
The world's first multi-talented cordless tapper with additional drill and driver function will be launched, enabling the Nuertingen power tool manufacturer to extend its wide range of cordless tools. With the new GB 18 LTX BL Q I tapper, professionals from both industry and metal trades can drill, drive and cut threads with only one machine.
Metabo thus unites three functions in one machine, without any compromise. The cordless tapper; a member of the powerful LTX class, drills holes efficiently up to 13 mm in diameter into metal, and after a quick tool change, cuts accurate female threads. The patented tapping chuck has a square shaft for M8 to M12 size taps which prevents the taps from slipping and damaging the tool or workpiece. Craftsmen can however also clamp smaller taps into the special drill chuck, as well as straight shank drill bits of 1.5 to 13 mm diameter.
