Makita is meeting demand with another cordless metalworking solution, the new 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless 4-1/2” Paddle Switch Cut-Off/Angle Grinder with Electric Brake Kit, model XAG10M. In addition to the electric brake, which stops the grinding or cut-off wheel in two seconds or less upon release of the switch, the XAG10M includes electronic torque control, a large no lock-on flush-mount paddle switch with two stage lock-off, and an anti-restart function.

  • The new XAG10M features Automatic Speed Change Technology, engineered to adjust speed and torque during grinding or cutting applications for optimum performance, even under heavy load.
  • The efficient BL Brushless motor is electronically controlled to optimize battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per charge than similar non-brushless tools. And since there are no carbon brushes, the BL Brushless motor runs cooler and more efficiently for longer life.
  • Delivers 8,500 RPM for faster grinding, with soft start to suppress start-up reaction for smooth start-ups and longer gear life. The electronic torque control is engineered to turn off the motor if rotation speed suddenly slows or wheel is forced to stop.
  • The grinder is equipped with Extreme Protection Technology (XPT), a protective seal inside the tool engineered for improved dust and moisture resistance by channeling debris away from the tool’s key internal components.
  • The grinder is also equipped with wire mesh intake covers to help prevent debris from entering the motor.
  • Convenience features include a large no lock-on flush-mount paddle switch with two-stage lock-off. In the event that a battery is installed while pulling the paddle switch into the ON position, the anti-restart function prevents the grinder from starting.
  • Rubberized soft grip and a 3-stage L.E.D. gauge to indicate battery charge level.
  • The XAG10M weighs only 5.6 lbs. with battery.
  • Star Protection Computer Controls 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, overdischarging and overheating.
  • The XAG10M can be powered by Makita’s range of 18V LXT Lithium-Ion batteries with the Star symbol on the battery including 2.0Ah, 3.0Ah, 4,0Ah, 5.0Ah, and 6.0Ah.
