Makita Cordless Earth Auger
Makita U.S.A., Inc. has announced the new 18V X2 (36V) LXT Cordless Earth Auger (XGD01).
The XGD01 provides high-performance digging of even and consistent holes, making it ideal for landscaping, construction, and soil sampling.
Its hole drilling capacity is 8” wide and 41” deep. The Makita-built brushless motor delivers power of a 36cc gas earth auger. Other benefits compared to a gas auger include no emissions, no oil mixing, no pull starts, reduced maintenance, lower noise levels, and 30% less weight.
The XGD01 offers two speed options: 0-350 RPM and 0-1,400 RPM. It features Automatic Speed Change technology to adjust the drill speed and torque during drilling, reverse switch, torque limiter, and built-in L.E.D. light. Metal-gear housing increases the tool’s durability.
The XGD01 also features Makita’s exclusive Extreme Protection Technology (XPT) for improved dust and water resistance in harsh conditions.
The cordless earth auger is available as a kit (XGD01PT) or tool-only (XGD01Z) and includes auger bit adaptors and a chuck key with convenient on-tool storage. Other accessories such as 4”, 6” and 8” auger drill bits and extension bars are sold separately.
