XGT System for High Demand Applications


The XGT System is the next generation of technology, engineered to achieve the optimum power required for heavier load applications without sacrificing run time. These high-powered products are the one-battery solution to handle the most demanding jobs and environments.


80Vmax (40V max X2)
Two batteries mean more power! Makita-built brushless motors, along with two 40V max XGT Batteries, deliver the power and performance required for heavy-load applications. By using two 40V max XGT Batteries, you get 80V of power within one system. The increased power and performance allow XGT Cordless Equipment and Tools to rival corded tools and gas equipment.
