NEW MAKITA CUT-OUT TOOL DELIVERS THE POWER & PERFORMANCE FOR DRYWALL CONTRACTORS TO UNPLUG THE CORD

New XOC01M with 4.0Ah battery delivers category-leading run time

18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless Cut-Out Tool Kit (XOC01M)

La Mirada, CA – Makita® has released a new 18V cordless solution for drywall contractors with the 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cut-Out Tool (XOC01M). The XOC01M is powered by the Makita 18V 4.0Ah battery for longer run time and the fastest charge time in the category, and is engineered to deliver the power and performance of a corded cut-out tool — without the hassles of a cord.

Makita 18V LXT: No Limits
“Drywall contractors have high productivity standards, and the new 18V LXT® cut-out tool is a cordless solution that they’ve been waiting for,” said Mario Lopez, Product Manager, Cordless Products, Makita USA. “The XOC01M is engineered to deliver the power and speed to get the job done faster, with run time that will let drywall contractors unplug the cord.”
 
The new XOC01M is part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion series, which offers 80+ tools and is the world’s largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.
 
More Work on a Single Charge
The 18V LXT® Cut-Out Tool has the performance and run time to keep up with the high productivity standards of drywall contractors.
 
“In internal testing, the XOC01M made up to 100 cuts into 1/2” drywall on a single charge of the 18V 4.0Ah battery,” said Lopez. “That’s enough cutting for up to 100 single gang boxes, giving drywall contractors the performance that no other cordless cut-out tool in the industry can match.”
 
Speed, Convenience and Comfort
The XOC01M is powered by a Makita-built motor that delivers 30,000 RPM for fast drywall cutting. The slide switch with lock-on and slim body design are engineered for user comfort. It accepts both 1/8” and 1/4” bits, and for added convenience the on-board bit change capability eliminates the need for a wrench. The vent slots direct air and debris away from the operator.
 
Star Protection Computer Controls™
For improved tool performance and extended battery life, the XOC01M features Star Protection Computer Controls™. Star Protection is communication technology that allows the Star Protection-equipped tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, overdischarging and overheating. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita 18V LXT® and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
 
New Cordless Solutions for Drywall Contractors
The XOC01M is part of new game-changing innovation for drywall contractors that also includes the new 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Drywall Screwdriver (XSF03M). Both tools are also available in a new 2-piece combo kit, model XT255M.
