MAKITA LAUNCHES NEW LXT® BRUSHLESS 9” POWER CUTTER

The 18V X2 (36V) LXT® Brushless 9” Power Cutter has a maximum cutting depth of 3-1/2”

La Mirada, CA -- Makita U.S.A., Inc., manufacturer of high-quality professional power tools and accessories, is pleased to announce the 18V X2 (36V) LXT® Brushless 9” Power Cutter. It has the power to cut through concrete, masonry, and metal materials with all the benefits and convenience of cordless operation. The power cutter is available as both a bare tool (XEC01Z) and a kit (XEC01PT1).

The XEC01 has a maximum cutting depth of 3-1/2”, which allows for single-pass cuts in many common materials, including standard residential 4” concrete slabs (actual 3-1/2”), common 3-1/2” paver/blocks, 3” SCH40 pipe (3-1/2” OD), and 3” conduit (3-1/2” OD). It is an ideal cordless solution for masons, roofers, plumbers, remodelers, general contractors, landscape and hardscape workers, metal fabricators, commercial framers, pipe fitters, vehicle mechanics, firefighters, and more.
 
Cordless Convenience
The benefits of a cordless power cutter over a gas power cutter include no oil/gas mixing, no emissions, no pull starts, no engine maintenance, and lighter weight. This means reduced operator fatigue for use on vertical walls, as well as instant starts and cost savings. With zero emissions it can be used indoors and in tight spaces.
 
18V LXT® System
The Makita® LXT Cordless System, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries, provides users with the most advanced, durable, and dependable 18V products. Four key components work together to create the LXT Advantage: fast-charging LXT Batteries, a Rapid Optimum Charger, industry-leading brushless motors, and Star Protection Computer Controls
 
Technologically Advanced
Active Feedback-sensing Technology (AFT®) turns the motor off if rotation of the wheel is suddenly forced to stop. An electric brake stops the wheel in 4 seconds or less allowing for faster re-positioning. And Makita's Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™) is designed to improve a tool’s operation in harsh conditions by channeling water and dust from key internal components.
 
For improved performance and extended battery life, the XEC01 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, over-discharging and overheating. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
 
Additional Features
An integrated water delivery system continuously feeds water for OSHA Table 1 Compliance in concrete cutting applications. Water flow is controlled with an adjustment knob. 
 
The belt-drive design provides smoother operation with lower vibration. The XEC01 has a purpose-built BL™ Brushless Motor, which eliminates carbon brushes and enables the motor to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life. The brushless motor delivers 6,600 RPM.
 
Other features of the cordless power cutter include a built-in L.E.D. light, large spindle lock button for easier wheel changes, rubberized front handle for comfort, a lock-off power switch and soft start, integrated overload indicator, L.E.D. battery charge indicator, and protective battery compartment.
 
The Right Accessories
Makita offers two key accessories optimized for use with the cordless XEC01. The 9” Premium Diamond Blade (E-02973) is ideal for cutting masonry materials and delivers up to 60% more cuts per charge and 10% faster cutting than standard blades. The Premium Cut-Off Wheel (E-03012) is engineered for metal cutting and is optimized for up to 60% more cuts per charge and up to 60% faster cutting than standard cut-off wheels.
