TOOLMONGER: MAKITA 18V CORDLESS SANDER IS "AHEAD OF ITS TIME"

Toolmonger.com goes "hands on" with the 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Random Orbit Sander

18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless 5" Random Orbit Sander (LXOB01).

Sean O'Hara at Toolmonger.com thought he wouldn't like the 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless 5" Random Orbit Sander (LXOB01). That is, until he ran the tool. 

Sean became a fan of the LXOB01 after trying it out on a range of projects, from a dresser rebuild to a set of 8' x 8' Hungarian Shelves. He liked the LXOB01's balance and fit, power, speed settings, run time, battery re-charge time (only 30 minutes), and performance -- all without a cord. Read the entire review here

Corded Performance, Without the Cord
The LXOB01 has three speed settings that are easily changed wtih a one-touch electronic control switch. The large 1/8" random orbit action is engineered for efficient sanding, fast material removal, and a swirl-free finish. It has an ergonomically-designed body and grip that weighs only 3.6 lbs. (with battery). It uses quick-change 5" (8-hole) hook-and-loop abrasive paper for increased versatility.

The run-time, versatility, and superior ergonomics of the LXOB01 make it ideal for carpenters, cabinet makers, furniture builders, refinishers, boat builders, auto detailers, general contractors, and more. It's the latest addition to Makita's 18V LXT® platform, with 60+ tools powered by one fast-charging 18V Lithium-ion battery. For more, go here or watch the video below. 

Toolmonger's hands-on review included a dresser re-build and a shelving project.

The LXOB01 is part of Makita's expanding 18V LXT® Series, with 60+ tools powered by one fast-charging 18V Lithium-Ion battery.
