18V LXT® Lithium‑Ion Cordless Compact Band Saw
The Makita 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless Portable Band Saw (model XBP03Z, tool only) delivers cordless metal cutting power to the jobsite.
The XBP03Z has a Makita-built high torque motor and a compact design with less weight for a range of cutting applications in a variety of metal materials. The XBP03Z is engineered for a range of metal-cutting tasks, ideal for any electrical, HVAC, installation, metal building, metal fabrication, plumbing, and any pro contractor who requires a best-in-class engineered cordless portable band saw.
The XBP03Z features a Makita-built high torque motor 630 ft./min. blade speed for faster cutting and a 2-1/2" cutting capacity is ideal for cutting conduit, Unistrut®, all thread, channel, corrugated, pipe, sheet metal, square tubing, and more. The adjustable foot protects material and provides positive support for more accurate cuts.
The XBP03Z weighs just 9 lbs. (with battery, sold separately) with a more compact design at 18-3/4” long and an ergonomic shape that fits like a glove for reduced operator fatigue. The XBP03Z is also equipped with a built in L.E.D. light that illuminates the work area for more efficient work, as well as rubber bumpers and a removable hook.
It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion system, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style 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.
