Automatic Speed Change™ is technology that adjusts speed and torque for optimal performance, even in the most demanding applications. During operation, if the tool is put under heavy load, Automatically Speed Change™ detects the added demand and applies more torque and speed to finish the job. Makita cordless tools with Automatic Speed Change™ are engineered to deliver corded performance, without the cord.
Makita has delivered a cordless and cutting solution for rebar and steel rod with the 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless Steel Rod Flush Cutter (model XCS02T1). The XCS02T1 will cut up to #8 Rebar or 1” threaded rod up to 1/8” flush to the surface. It's powered by a Makita brushless motor for longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life. For increased durability, the XCS02T1 is equipped with Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™) for improved dust and water resistance for operation in harsh conditions. It is an ideal solution for work away from a power source or in remote locations.
It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion system, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries. 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.
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 on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
