Makita's new 18V LXT lithium-ion die grinder

Makita’s  line-up of 18V LXT Lithium-Ion tools now includes over 40 cordless solutions. The new 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless ¼ inch Die Grinder (model LXDG01) combines speed and portability in a compact size for a range of metalworking applications. 

The new LXDG01 is powered by a Makita-built motor that delivers 25,000 RPM for faster grinding. The compact design with barrel grip weighs only 4.4 lbs., and the stepped neck makes it ideal for working in tight spaces. The slide switch has a lock-on for operator convenience, with vent slots designed to direct exhaust air away from the user. The LXDG01 also features a solid aluminum housing for added durability.

The LXDG01 includes a built-in L.E.D. protection circuit with over-torque to protect the motor. In addition, the L.E.D. light flashes red when it is time to recharge the battery.
