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™.
Punch holes in ¼” metal in under 5 seconds with the 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless 5/16" Hole Puncher Kit (XPP01T1K). The XPP01T1K allows hole punching with complete cordless mobility. It can punch up to 180 20MM (25/32”) diameter holes in 15/64” thick steel with a 5.0Ah 18V LXT Battery. The punch stop mechanism automatically retracts the die once a punch is complete to quickly continue operation. For select applications, hole punching just became fast and effortless!
The ergonomic grip handle rotates 360°, allowing for optimal positioning in a variety of spaces. It features a rubberized soft grip for increased comfort on the job and a convenient side handle for additional support.
The XPP01T1K is ideal for fabrication, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, mechanical and many more applications.
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 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® Lithium-Ion Batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
