V LXT® Lithium‑Ion Cordless 1/4″ Die Grinder Kit (5.0Ah)


The Makita 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless ¼” Die Grinder (model XDG01T) delivers speed and portability in a compact size. It is engineered for a range of metalworking surface-prep applications including grinding, smoothing and cutting. The kit includes two fast-charging 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion 5.0Ah batteries and an efficient Rapid Optimum Charger.

The XDG01T features a Makita-built motor with 25,000 RPM for faster grinding. The compact design with barrel grip weighs only 4.4 lbs. (with battery), and the stepped-neck design 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 XDG01 also features a solid aluminum housing for added durability.

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

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® and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.

GD0801C  1/4″ SJS™ Paddle Switch Die Grinder


Makita’s ¼” SJS™ Paddle Switch Die Grinder (model GD0801C) combines a powerful 6.6 AMP motor with motor and gear protection features for longer-lasting grinding performance. The GD0801C features a large flush-mount paddle switch for increased convenience.

The GD0801C is equipped with SJS™ technology, an innovative mechanical clutch system that allows the drive shaft to slip if the wheel suddenly catches or binds. SJS™ is engineered to help protect the gears and motor, and extend grinder life.

The GD0801C is powered by a 6.6 AMP motor that delivers 7,000 – 28,000 RPM with soft start for smooth start-ups. The electronic speed control maintains constant speed under load, and a variable speed control dial allows the user to match the speed to the application. Consistent with other models in Makita’s expanding grinder line-up, the GD0801C features labyrinth construction, a series of channels engineered to capture dust and debris and prevent contaminants from penetrating the gear box and front armature bearing for longer tool life. In addition, the protective zig-zag varnish seals the motor and bearings from dust and debris by creating a barrier under rotation
