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. These dust extractors are part of this system, using the same batteries that work in Makita 18V LXT Power Tools. 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, the cordless metal shears feature 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.
 
Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™)
For added durability, the shears are equipped with Extreme Protection Technology (XPT). XPT is a protective seal inside the tool engineered for improved water resistance by channeling water and dust from the tool’s key internal components. The XPT-equipped metal shears are engineered for improved operation in harsh job site conditions.
