18V LXT® Lithium‑Ion Brushless Cordless 1/3 Sheet Finishing Sander, AWS® Capable, Tool Only

  • SPEED : Three speed settings (4,000/8,000/12,000 OPM) engineered for faster material removal
  • COMFORT : Ergonomically designed body and grip for increased operator comfort
  • INNOVATION : Motor and battery location reduces fluttering and helps achieve an evenly finished surface
  • PERFORMANCE : 1/16" orbit action engineered for faster sanding and swirl-free finish
  • INCLUDES : Tool only (battery and charger not included)

The Makita 18V LXT® Brushless Cordless 1/3 Sheet Finishing Sander offers all the power and control of a corded version but without the cord. It offers a 1/16” orbiting action with faster sanding that is engineered for a swirl-free finish. There are three-speed settings at 4,000, 8,0000, and 12,000 Orbits Per Minute (OPM) that can be selected through a convenient one-touch speed control, while the battery and motor locations are engineered to reduce flutter for a more evenly finished surface. It can be connected to the Makita Auto-Start Wireless System (AWS) utilizing Bluetooth for wireless start/stop communication between the sander and an optional dust extractor (sold separately).

It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V LXT® System, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries. Makita® 18V LXT® 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 a 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.

  • AWS®
  • Makita takes another step toward a truly cordless job site with Auto-Start Wireless System. AWS® uses Bluetooth® technology for wireless power-on and power-off communication between the equipped tool and dust extractor. AWS® is intelligent communication that eliminates cords and excessive noise since the dust extractor runs only when trigger-activated by an AWS® tool. When the trigger is released, the dust extractor powers-down. The Makita AWS® dust extractor (XCV08Z) is powered by two 18V LXT® batteries for maximum performance, and users benefit with an expanding AWS® system that includes cordless tools for concrete, metal and woodworking.

  • LXT® Lithium-Ion
