Designed for high production tapping, operators can now increase their productivity 10-fold! Champion’s new XLT Tapper tool will allow you to tap over 10 times faster than hand tapping in steel and aluminum. These units are in stock now and ready to make your big tapping jobs more cost efficient.

Engineered for heavy duty use on-site or in the shop. Popular applications include, architectural glass and metal work, steel fabrication, fleet maintenance, railway repair, elevator maintenance, door and hardware fabrication/installation.

The tool is incredibly easy to use with its built-in safety clutch, consistent speed control, and automatic reversing action. It’s even got a pivoting tap collet for trouble-free tap alignment, significantly reducing tap breakage. The adjustable depth-stop controls the threading depth to assure you aren’t doing more than you have to conserving precious time.

Hole capacity in steel is listed up to 9/16” and Aluminum up to 5/8”. The powerful 450 watt motor only weighs in at 6 pounds and allows use all day long without the wear and tear.

Western States does have demo units available to try. Give us a call and we’ll be happy to let you take one for a spin!
