18V LXT® Lithium‑Ion Brushless Cordless Drywall Sander, AWS® Capable
Makita® 18V LXT® Brushless Cordless Drywall Sander (XLS01Z, tool only) delivers increased efficiency and mobility for drywall finishers. The compact and lightweight design make the XLS01 easier to use for extended periods of time.
The XLS01Z delivers up to 35 minutes of run time on a single charge of an 18V 5.0Ah battery (battery sold separately). Users can match the speed to the application with a variable speed control dial (1,000 - 1,800 RPM), and Constant Speed Control automatically provides additional power to the motor to maintain speed under load for consistent performance.
The large highly flexible head is engineered for efficient for increased maneuverability across various wall orientations. The direct-drive BL™ Brushless Motor eliminates carbon brushes, enabling the motor to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life. The adjustable extension pipe collapses for sanding in confined spaces, such as closets, and extends up to 16-1/2” for reaching high walls and ceilings. The dust brush is removable for seamless flush-to-corner edge sanding.
For improved efficiency, it’s equipped with Auto-Start Wireless System technology (AWS®). AWS utilizes Bluetooth® technology for wireless communication between the tool and dust extractor (sold separately). When the trigger of the AWS-equipped XLS01 is engaged, the AWS-equipped dust extractor powers-up. When the trigger is released, the dust extractor powers-down. AWS is intelligent communication that eliminates cords and excessive noise since the dust extractor runs only when the tool is running.
It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V LXT® system, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion 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.
