MAKITA EXPANDS NEW 40V MAX AND 80V MAX XGT SYSTEM LINE-UP

New cordless demolition hammer, miter saw, angle grinders, outdoor power equipment, and 5.0Ah battery are additions to the expanding XGT System

New XGT Products launching this month include an 80V max XGT Demolition Hammer (shown), 40V max Blower and String Trimmer, a 40V Miter Saw, and many more.

May 6, 2021, La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc., the leader in cordless power tool innovation, is pleased to announce 10 new products in the 40V max and 80V max XGT® System. The XGT System is a standalone cordless system of equipment and tools designed to handle high-demand applications.
 
The XGT System is engineered to outpower, outsmart, and outlast the rest, and take the job site completely cordless. The XGT System offers two 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, yet expanding the technical capabilities, an XGT Battery can power everything from equipment to a handheld drill.
 
The following XGT Products are launching this month:
 
Construction
80V max (40V X2) XGT Brushless 28 lb. AVT® Demolition Hammer (GMH02) – The GMH02 delivers up to 27.5 Joules (20.2 ft.lbs.) of impact energy for up to 15% faster breaking efficiency than a corded equivalent demolition hammer (Makita model HM1213C). Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT), an internal counterbalance system, reduces vibration for user comfort. This demolition hammer is AWS-capable (transmitter sold separately). Auto-start Wireless System (AWS) allows for wireless power-on/off communication between the tool and a dust extractor. The hammer also features multiple angle settings, soft start, built-in L.E.D. light, constant speed control and a variable speed dial and trigger.
 
40V max XGT Brushless 6” Angle Grinders (GAG07 and GAG08) – These angle grinders deliver the power and performance for heavy-load applications. They both feature Active Feedback-sensing Technology (AFT®), which turns off the motor if rotation of the wheel is suddenly forced to a stop. Both grinders also feature an electric brake. The GAG07 has a slide switch, while the GAG08 has a paddle switch.
 
Residential Construction
40V max XGT Brushless 8-1/2” Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw (GSL02) –The new XGT Miter Saw delivers 4,800 RPMs for faster cutting than corded miter saws. It has a large cutting capacity at 90-degrees and can cut up to 3x12 material in a single pass. It has positive miter stops at 0°, 15°, 22.5°, 31.6°, 45° and 60° left or right. It miters 0-60° left and right and bevels 0-48° left and right.
 
An L.E.D. light casts a shadow of the saw blade onto the material for an exact cutting line. The rail-forward design maximizes workspace when up against a wall. Extension wings adjust quickly for material support. The miter saw is AWS-capable (transmitter sold separately).   
 
Outdoor Power Equipment
40V max XGT Brushless Blower (GBU01) – The new brushless blower offers up to 55% more blowing force than a comparable handheld gas blower (model BHX2500CA). It features a cruise control lever with variable speed trigger and turbo boost mode for heavy debris clean-up. The GBU01 can deliver up to 565 CFM with turbo boost. The blower has an in-line fan design for better balance and ergonomics. The nozzle telescopes and features a downward end point to provide more powerful air flow. The blower can get up to 35 minutes of run time with a 40V max XGT 4.0Ah Battery.  
 
40V max XGT Brushless 15” String Trimmer (GRU01) – The new brushless string trimmer delivers high power equivalent to gas, without the hassles. Automatic Torque Drive automatically shifts from 3,500 to 6,500 RPM. Users can get up to 1 hour of run time with a 40V max XGT 4.0Ah Battery. It features the new Rapid Load Trimmer Head, which loads lines in seconds with three easy steps.
