MAKITA INTRODUCES NEW 18V LXT BRUSHLESS CORDLESS 5"/6" DUAL ACTION RANDOM ORBIT POLISHER FOR AUTOMOTIVE APPLICATIONS

Cut the cord for cordless polishing freedom with the new 18V LXT Brushless Cordless 5”/6” Dual Action Random Orbit Polisher.

July 23, 2019, La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc., manufacturer of innovative cordless tools and accessories, is launching a random orbit polisher optimized for cordless performance. Ideal for automobiles and boats, the new 18V LXT® Brushless Cordless 5”/6” Dual Action Random Orbit Polisher (XOP02) assists with repairing oxidation, removing overspray, blending finishes, removing adhesive, and much more.

 
Cordless Polishing Freedom

This random orbit polisher is an ideal solution for a variety of polishing applications where mobility is important. The cordless design eliminates the hassle of cord management and accidental marring of delicate surfaces. The polisher has a 7/32” (5.5 mm) orbit diameter that provides a swirl-free finish.

The polisher offers two actions: random orbit with forced rotation or random orbit with free rotation. Dual power mode provides high power for correcting and low power for extended run time during polishing applications.

The variable speed control dial has five speed settings so users are able to set the speed and action to the application. The dial is conveniently located for easy adjustment. Constant speed control automatically applies additional power to the motor to maintain speed under load. A soft start is designed to suppress start-up reaction for smooth start-ups and longer gear life.

Other features include rubberized tool rest positions over gear housing and battery to help protect delicate surfaces, an ergonomically designed knob handle which provides precision and control in a variety of applications, and wire mesh air vent intake covers to prevent pad fibers from entering the motor.

 
18V LXT® System

Makita® LXT Cordless System, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries, takes a user from power tools to outdoor power equipment to get the job done. Makita 18V LXT Batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.

 
Star Protection Computer Controls

For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created 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, over-discharging and overheating. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita® 18V LXT® and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol indicating Star Protection inside.

 
Brushless Motor

The BL™ Brushless Motor eliminates carbon brushes, enabling the motor to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life. Anti-restart protection is engineered to prevent motor start-up when the battery is inserted with power switch locked-on.

Foam pads are sold separately. For more information on Makita® Products, please visit makitatools.com
