18V LXT® Lithium‑Ion Cordless 18 Gauge Straight Shear
The Makita 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless 18 Gauge Straight Shear (model XSJ01T) combines high speed, compact size and less weight.
The XSJ01T has a Makita-built 4-pole motor for faster cutting, yet it weighs just 5.3 lbs. (with battery) for better control in cutting steel and stainless steel sheet metal. The tough double-cut shear design handles up to 18 gauge mild steel and 20 gauge stainless steel for straight or scribe cuts without deforming the material, and the swivel shear head rotates 360 degrees for increased cutting options. The kit includes two 18V LXT® 5.0Ah batteries, and each reach a full charge in only 45 minutes.
It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion series, the world’s largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. 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.
