Cordless Tools

Makita U.S.A., Inc. has launched the 40V max and 80V max XGT® System, a stand-alone cordless system of equipment and tools. The XGT System delivers over 50 higher-powered cordless product solutions to applications dominated by cords, gas and air.


The XGT System is engineered to outpower, outsmart and outlast the rest, and take the job site completely cordless. It offers 3 power ranges: 40V max and 80V max products achieved by pairing two 40V max XGT Batteries together. By staying within the user-preferred 18V battery form factor, an XGT Battery can power everything from equipment to a handheld drill.


The system utilizes advanced brushless motor engineering with a higher volume of copper windings and highest-quality rare earth magnets for longer run time and longer tool life. The Makita-built brushless motors are equipped with sophisticated electronics that enable more precision settings and power.


XGT is a smart system with digital technology that enables communication between the tool and battery during use, as well as the charger and battery during charging. Digital communication within the system optimizes performance to provide up to 2x longer sustained power under heavy-load applications, and actively monitors and protects against overload, over-discharge and overheating. This real-time communication enables the battery and motor to work together for optimum tool performance. XGT Batteries can reach a full charge in as little as 28 minutes.


The batteries feature an impact-absorbing structure with a durable outer casing and cell holder that creates space within the pack to absorb impact if the battery is dropped. The battery has a triple-layer and enhanced terminal structure engineered to protect against exposure to water and dust. XGT Equipment and Tools feature Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™), a series of integrated seals inside the tool for added protection against dust and moisture.
