Makita was the first to introduce 18V lithium-ion cordless tools. Today, the LXT System is the world’s largest compatible 18V slide-style battery system with over 275 solutions. Makita’s purpose-built motors, battery technology, and enhanced communications work together to deliver unmatched power, speed, and run time. With solutions for every trade, users get maximum performance and efficiency with the LXT System.
Makita-built brushless motors eliminate carbon brushes and run contact-free, enabling the motor to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life. The electronically controlled brushless motor efficiently uses energy to match torque and speed to the changing demands of the application.
Star Protection Computer Controls™ is communication technology between the tool and battery that exchanges data in real-time to protect against overload, over-discharge and overheating.
The LXT Battery delivers constant power and longer run time, even in extreme temperatures. The charger communicates with the battery’s built-in chip to optimize battery life, controlling current, voltage, and temperature. A built-in fan circulates air through the battery during the charging process to cool the battery for faster charge time.
LXT X2 Products are powered by two 18V LXT Batteries for maximum power, speed, and run time. By using two 18V LXT Batteries, you get 36V of power and all your cordless tools operate within one system. Makita 36V (18V X2) LXT Products deliver the power, speed, and run time to handle a wide range of more demanding applications.
COMPACT & ERGONOMIC
Makita® 18V LXT Sub-Compact Products are Makita’s most compact 18V tools for jobs that require quick and efficient tools. LXT Sub-Compact Products are engineered to be smaller and lighter than Makita’s premium tools, so users get 12V handling with 18V compatibility. All LXT Sub-Compact Products are identified by the distinctive black trade dress.
