The Makita 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless ¼” Compact Die Grinder (model XDG02Z, tool only) delivers speed and portability in a compact size. It is engineered for a range of metalworking surface-prep applications including grinding, smoothing and cutting.
The XDG02Z features a Makita-built motor that delivers 26,000 RPM for faster grinding. The compact design with barrel grip weighs only 3.8 lbs. (with battery), with a short-neck design (only 12-1/8”L with battery) that makes it ideal for working in tight spaces. The slide switch has a lock-on for operator convenience, with vent slots designed to direct exhaust air away from the user. The XDG02Z also features a solid aluminum housing for added durability.
The XDG02Z includes a built-in L.E.D. light that provides overload motor protection warning due to over-torque. In addition, the L.E.D. light flashes red when it is time to recharge the battery. The XDG02Z delivers speed and portability in a compact size, and is ideal for a range of metalworking surface-prep applications.
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.
