The Makita 18V X2 (36V) LXT Brushless 9” Power Cutter cuts through metal and masonry with the convenience of cordless. The XEC01PT1 has a maximum cutting depth of 3-1/2” and can cut through standard residential concrete slab in a single pass. Besides concrete, it has the power to cut through I-beams, steel pipe (3”), rebar (3/4” -#6), metal stud (14” wide) and more.

The benefits of a cordless power cutter over a gas power cutter include no oil/gas mixing, no emissions, no pull starts, no engine maintenance, and lighter weight. For users this means reduced operator fatigue, instant starts, cost savings, and the ability to use the power cutter indoors, in tight spaces, and high elevations. For rental businesses this means lower maintenance, and no engine failure due to improper fuel mixing.

For dust management, the XEC01 includes an integrated water delivery system for continuous water-feed, which is OSHA Table 1 Compliance in concrete cutting applications. Water flow is controlled with an adjustment knob.

Added features include a belt-drive design for smoother operation with lower vibration. The XEC01PT1 has a purpose-built BL Brushless Motor, which eliminates carbon brushes and enables the motor to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life. The brushless motor delivers 6,600 RPM. Active Feedback-Sensing Technology (AFT) turns the motor off if rotation of the wheel is suddenly forced to stop. An electric brake stops the wheel in 4 seconds or less allowing for faster re-positioning. And Makita's Extreme Protection Technology (XPT) is designed to improve a tool’s operation in harsh conditions by channeling water and dust from key internal components.

It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V LXT System, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries. Makita 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.
