Makita is not messing around with this super cool innovation in the world of drywall. Giving users, like yourself, the ability to be mobile around the jobsite allows for quicker more efficient work. No more fumbling around the jobsite looking for outlets and tripping over extension cords. Now with the Makita XLS01T you can finish sanding at a record pace saving you time and money. Available now at Ohio Power Tool.
There is just a laundry list of features coming out of the new 18V LXT Lithium-ion Brushless Cordless 9″ Drywall Sander Kit w/ AWS from Makita. Let’s start with the AWS feature as you may be asking yourself what that is. Basically, Makita’s Auto-Start Wireless System (AWS) utilizes Bluetooth technology to communicate between the tool and the dust extractor which is sold separately. But it’s cool, you should totally buy it too, so when you engage the trigger the AWS-equipped dust extractor automatically powers on. This eliminates cords, energy, and excessive noise, so this is an upgrade on the jobsite all the way around.
It’s really something that they packed so much power and efficiency into a cordless tool, but they didn’t let that limit their output. Not only does this kit come with two batteries already, but they will run this tool for up to 35 minutes each. And with the rapid chargers charging at the fastest times in their category you can have a consistent workflow without waiting around on batteries to fully charge. I hope you are starting to see why this thing is a no-brainer to add to your arsenal—I’m not even a drywall guy and I want one.
There are almost too many features to list because this guy is so on point, so above I put together a little graphic illustrating some of the major ones that you can see easily.
- Direct Drive BL Brushless Motor eliminates carbon brushes to run cooler and more efficiently for reduced maintenance resulting in longer life.
- Constant Speed Control automatically applies additional power to the motor to maintain speed under load.
- Soft start suppresses start-up reaction for smooth start-ups guaranteeing a longer gear life.
- At less than 11 lbs. (including battery & the rubberized soft grip) it’s compact, lightweight, and comfortable for ease-of-use on those long days.
- And much, much more.
You can find out everything else that you need to know on Ohio Power Tool’s website when you pre-order this total game-changer to have it shipped to you by the end of the month. Thank me later.
