Makita cordless tools are engineered for industrial applications, and for added protection during the most demanding jobs Makita created STAR Protection Computer Controls™. STAR is communications technology that monitors conditions during use, allowing the tool and battery to exchange data to protect against overloading, overdischarging and overheating. If STAR detects conditions that threaten to overload, overdischarge or overheat the tool or battery, the tool will automatically stop. At that time the user can either restart the tool, change or charge the battery, and put the tool back to work. When you slide a Makita 18V LXT® battery with the STAR symbol onto a Makita tool that has either the STAR symbol or a yellow terminal, you are benefitting from STAR Protection Computer Controls™.
The Makita 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless 10 oz. Caulk and Adhesive Gun (model XGC01T1) is a versatile, powerful and lightweight solution for any contractor dispensing large amounts of caulk and adhesives.
It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion series, 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.
The XGC01T1 delivers 1,100 lbs. of dispensing force for even the highest viscosity adhesives and sealants. It features a 5-speed dial (0-66 IPM) and variable speed trigger that optimizes flow rate and allows for dispensing up to 2.5X faster than other cordless caulking guns.
It has a compact design at 15-7/8” with less weight (only 5.1 lbs. with 18V LXT® battery). Convenience features include a 360° rotatable cartridge holder for increased comfort and ease-of-use when dispensing, as well as a built-in L.E.D. light that illuminates the work area for improved visibility. It also features an Overload Indicator Light that notifies the operator when the tool is nearly overloaded to minimize breakage of the sealant cartridge.
