Brushless Cordless 7" Paddle Switch Cut-Off/Angle Grinder with Electric Brake

Makita, a pioneer in brushless motor technology and battery innovation, combines both in the 18V X2 LXT (36V) Lithium-Ion Brushless 7" Paddle Switch/Angle Grinder with Electric Brake. It's powered by two 18V Lithium-Ion batteries for 36V power and performance, and has an electronically-controlled BL Brushless motor that matches torque and RPM to the application. Makita 18V X2 means freedom from the cord, even for demanding applications like grinding and cut-off applications that often call for a corded grinder. Best of all, users can remain in one battery platform, using the same fast-charging 18V batteries on the XAG12PT as they use across the Makita 18V LXT cordless tool system.
