Makita adds die grinder to its LXT cordless line

Makita's LXT Series Die Grinder kit.

The latest addition to Makita's LXT Series of lithium-ion-powered tools is the new cordless die grinder.

“With 25,000 RPM and 18 volts of lithium-ion power, it is another trade solution for pros working in plumbing, automotive, service and maintenance," said Ethan Haughawout, Makita product manager, cordless tools.

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.

Since its introduction on Oct. 3, 2005, Makita’s LXT Series featuring 18V lithium-ion battery technology has been providing the professional end-user with more work solutions. Nearly six years later, there are more than 40 trade solutions in the LXT Series.
