MAKITA LAUNCHES NEW BRUSHLESS CORDLESS BAND SAWS

The compact and sub-compact versions are designed for one-handed operation.

The 18V LXT Compact Brushless Cordless Band Saw (XBP04) and 18V LXT Sub-Compact Brushless Cordless Band Saw (XBP05) meet ANSI blade guarding requirements for one-handed operation.

July 14, 2020, La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc. announces two new compact band saws for efficient metal cutting in tight spaces and overhead cutting applications. The Makita® 18V LXT® Compact Brushless Cordless Band Saw (XBP04) and 18V LXT Sub-Compact Brushless Cordless Band Saw (XBP05) meet ANSI blade guarding requirements for one-handed operation, making them ideal for a range of metal-cutting tasks in tight spaces. Cordless band saws are useful in electrical, HVAC, installation, metal building, metal fabrication, and plumbing applications.
 
18V LXT® Compact Brushless Cordless Band Saw (XBP04)
 
The 18V LXT Compact Brushless Cordless Band Saw features a 2-5/8" cutting capacity is ideal for cutting a variety of metal materials, including conduit, Unistrut®, all thread, channel, corrugated, pipe, sheet metal, and square tubing. It has a BL™ Brushless Motor with 630 ft./min. blade speed for faster cutting.
 
The XBP04 has a trigger switch with lock-off feature that requires two actions to power-on the band saw. A catch bar helps eliminate accidental follow through during repetitive cutting. Other features include a built in L.E.D. light that illuminates the work area for more efficient work, rubber bumpers, and a removable hook.
 
18V LXT® Sub-Compact Brushless Cordless Band Saw (XBP05)
 
An even more compact option is the new 18V LXT Sub-Compact Brushless Cordless Band Saw. It is available as a bare tool (XBP05ZB) or kit (XBP05R1B). LXT Sub-Compact Products are engineered to be smaller and lighter than Makita’s premium tools. When jobs require quick and efficient tools, sub-compact products are the solution.
 
The XBP05 measures only 14-3/4” long and weighs just 7.3 lbs. (with battery) for reduced operator fatigue. It can make up to 160 cuts of ¾” EMT with an 18V LXT 2.0Ah Battery and has a 2” x 2” cutting capacity. The sub-compact band saw also features a BL™ Brushless Motor that delivers 0-630 ft./min. variable blade speed for faster, more efficient cutting.
 
Constant speed control automatically applies additional power to the motor to maintain speed under load during challenging jobs. Overload protection is designed to protect the motor from burnout during abnormally high torque situations.
 
The XBP05 is also equipped with a built in L.E.D. light that illuminates the work area for more efficient work, as well as rubber bumpers and a removable hook.
 
18V LXT® System
 
Makita’s LXT Cordless System, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries, takes a user from power tools to outdoor power equipment to get the job done. Makita 18V LXT Batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.
 
Makita created a new class in cordless with 18V LXT Sub-Compact Products. Makita LXT Sub-Compact Products are the most compact and lightest weight in the 18V category, so users get 12V handling with 18V compatibility. Sub-compact tools use the same 18V batteries and chargers that work with over 275+ solutions in the LXT System. Our sub-compact line includes the most compact and lightweight recipocal saw, rotary hammer, drill and impact driver in the 18V lithium-ion cordless tool category.
 
Star Protection Computer Controls
 
For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created Star Protection Computer Controls. Star Protection is communication technology that allows the Star Protection-equipped tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside
