A NEW SYSTEM OF EQUIPMENT & TOOLS
XGT® is a new 40V | 80V max system of cordless equipment and tools. XGT® outpowers, outsmarts, and outlasts the rest. Through Makita’s innovative engineering, the technology within XGT® will lead to creating the equipment and tools of the future.

GET A COMPLETELY CORDLESS JOBSITE
The LXT® System handles most applications, but for high-demand applications that use corded, gas or air, the XGT System delivers higher-powered solutions. With 40V max and 80V max XGT® Products, pros can fully experience a battery-powered job site.

RARE EARTH MAGNETS & PURE COPPER WIRE
Rare earth magnets of the highest quality are engineered within the brushless motors to maximize power and performance.
Makita® XGT Products feature purpose-built brushless motors with more copper windings for increased power output.

BUILT-IN MICROCHIPS & DIGITAL COMMUNICATION
Built-in microchips in both tool and battery allow for real-time digital communication, actively monitoring heat, overload, and over-discharge.
Digital communication between XGT Tools and Batteries through enhanced digital communication technology optimize performance to deliver up to 2X longer sustained power during demanding applications.

IMPACT ABSORBENT STRUCTURE & WATER AND DUST RESISTANCE
Durable outer casing and cell holder create space within the battery to absorb impact.
Water and dust-resistant triple layer structure and an enhanced terminal structure are engineered to protect against water and dust for any job site condition.

MULTI-LAYER SURFACE CONTACTS & RAPID OPTIMUM CHARGING SYSTEM
Multi-layer surface contacts within tool and battery are designed to take on high current demands.
XGT Charger and Dual Cooling Fans digitally communicates before and during the charging process, evaluating battery condition to deliver a consistent fast charge. It even charges 18V LXT Batteries with an adapter.
