About this deal

Auto-Start Wireless System (AWS) - connects to compatible dust extractors with Bluetooth. The dust extractor automatically runs while the switch is on The most impressive feature of this tool is that the sandpaper also rotates with the head, which eliminates a lot of the gouges that can be found in a standard orbital sander. Most random orbital sanders have a dust extractor that helps collect dust particles and eliminate drywall dust. Belt Sanders Clint’s career has covered nearly the entire realm of audio and video production. After graduating at the top of his class with an Associates Degree in Recording Engineering, he began working for the famed Soundelux studios in 1994, one of the largest post-production companies specializing in audio for feature films & television. Working on a myriad of feature films, Clint honed his skills as a dialogue editor, foley editor, and sound designer. Years later, he moved into the expanding area of video editing, where he served as the company’s senior AVID video editor for three years.

Rapid Optimum Charger communicates with the battery's built-in chip throughout the charging process to optimize battery life by actively controlling current, voltage and temperature Extreme Protection Technology (XPT) is engineered for improved dust and water resistance for operation in harsh conditions

Working for such clients as Universal Pictures, Hollywood Pictures, Paramount Home Entertainment, NASA, Universal Studios, Planet Hollywood, SEGA, NASCAR, and others, Clint DeBoer dealt extensively with client management as well as film & video editing, color correction, and digital video & MPEG compression. He also carries several THX certifications (Technician I and II, THX Video), and is ISF Level II Certified. CAPACITY : Adjustable extension pipe collapses for confined spaces and extends for reaching high areas Optional Extension Handle (part no. 199937-7) allows an additional 22-3/4" longer reach for high walls and ceilings Overload sensor is designed to alert when excessive load is applied and protect from damage due to overheat Adjustable extension pipe collapses for sanding in confined spaces and extends up to 16-1/2" for reaching high walls and ceilings

Like an orbital sander, this power tool uses a sanding pad to polish drywall, but instead of a square sanding head, random orbital sanders have a circular sanding disc. Auto-start Wireless System (AWS®) which utilizes Bluetooth® technology for wireless power-on/off communication between tool and dust extractor Direct drive brushless motor positioned at the sanding head for increased sanding efficiency and reduced maintenance Whether its drywall or plaster, you want to leave the finished walls looking as good and as smooth as possible. Patches, joins, and nail marks all need to be taken care of before and the wall must be perfect before any paint can be applied. As you’d expect, Makita seems to have designed the head with plenty of swivel and flexibility for getting to ceilings and walls from virtually any position. There’s also a removable dust brush that reveals easy glide roller wheels for flush-to-wall edge sanding. That’s a feature we’ve appreciated seeing on products like the Flex Giraffe GE 7and the Festool Planex drywall sander.The BIG issue is the extraction capability. We have the corded/cordless Makita XCV13Z dust extractor (we plug it into the wall). We also tried our traditional shop-vac. In both cases dust was still puffing out everywhere. There are better corded units that get almost all of the airborne dust. This unit does not. You will still need to do some major cleanup after sanding. I would say it only trapped about 30% of the airborne dust and none of the stuff that is heavy and falls to the ground. The brushless motor eliminates carbon brushes, enabling the motor to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life In terms of weight, the Makita XLS01 does very well, measuring just 10.7 lbs. on the scale with battery. For comparison:

Two position rubberized soft grip handles provide increased comfort and easier maneuverability of sander

Equipped with round brush for more efficient dust extraction (DSL800 model has a straight brush on one side for sanding right up to edges) This model is also a part of the Auto-Start Wireless System (AWS) range, which can connect to compatible dust extractors with Bluetooth using the supplied Bluetooth adaptor. The dust extractor automatically runs while the tool is switch is on, and turns off when tool is off. This maximises the battery life of both products. Equipped with Star Protection Computer Controls™ to protect against overloading, over-discharging and over-heating
