The Makita 18V LXT Brushless Cordless Drywall Sander (XLS01ZX1) delivers performance and mobility for drywall finishers and construction professionals. This compact and lightweight design enables individuals to use the XLS01ZX1 for extended periods of time.
The tool delivers up to 35 minutes of runtime on a single charge of an 18V 5.0Ah battery (sold separately). Users can match the speed to the application with a variable speed control dial (1,000 to 1,800 rpm). Constant Speed Control automatically provides additional power to the motor to maintain speed under load. The XLS01ZX1 features a round brush design for dust extraction and minimal leakage.
The large flexible head is engineered for maneuverability across various wall orientations. The direct-drive BL Brushless Motor eliminates carbon brushes, enabling the motor to run cool. The adjustable extension pipe collapses for sanding in confined spaces, such as closets, and extends up to 16-1/2 in. for reaching high walls and ceilings. The dust brush is removable for flush-to-corner edge sanding.
This tool is 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.
For tool performance and battery life, Makita created Star Protection Computer Controls. Star Protection is a 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 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.
