Loan tools

There will come a time when your tool will need service or maintenance, in that event Melbourne Packaging supplies can dispatch a technician to repair you tool onsite, or if the repair may take awhile and requires repair at out warehouse we can loan you a tool. Most international strapping companies don’t offer this service, its one of the many advantages in buying through a privately owned Australian company.

High Quality battery strapping tool design

The XST-450 uses a unique design, using a high precision DC motor with analog control, the motor accelerates and decelerates with gradual force. This reduces strain on the motor and the tools internal components. Our motors last over 100,000 straps. Our motor is also hard bolted to the frame of the tool. For this reason despite over hundreds of tools sold the XST-450 has never had a motor spin itself out inside the casing or its soldering break to the motors terminals. Both common issues with many other designs.
