May 18, 2021, La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc., the leader in cordless power tool innovation, has released an 18V LXT® Sub-Compact and 12V max CXT® Brushless 3” Polisher/ 2” Sander (XVP01 and VP01, respectively). These compact polisher/sanders deliver detailed polishing and sanding. They are ideal for precise applications such as spot polishing micro imperfections, polishing narrow spaces, removing rust from metal surfaces, and removing scruff marks or oxidation from plastic surfaces like headlights, taillights, and convertible window screens.

It features rubberized gear housing helps protect delicate surfaces and an angled side handle to prevent unwanted contact with the work surface.
