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 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless 29 oz. Caulk and Adhesive Gun (tool only) is a versatile, powerful, and lightweight solution for any contractor dispensing large amounts of caulk and adhesives, including window installers, drywall contractors, fire stop installers, commercial glazers, boat builders, and more.
With 1,100 lbs. of dispensing force, it is ideal for use with the highest viscosity adhesives and sealants, even in cold weather. It features a 5-speed dial with 0-66 Inches Per Minute (IPM), and a variable speed trigger that allows the user to optimize the flow rate according to the application. It has a compact design at 18-7/8”.
Convenience features include a 360° rotatable cartridge holder that fits 29 oz. cartridges, 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.
It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion series, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by an 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.
