The 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 5 in. Random Orbit Sander (model XOB01T) delivers increased efficiency and mobility to woodworkers. The XOB01T features 3 speed settings, superior ergonomics and up to 40-minutes of run time on a single charge. Match the speed to the application with 3 speed settings (7,000/9,500/11,000 OPM), which are easily changed with a 1-touch electronic control switch. The large 1/8 in. random orbit action is engineered for efficient sanding, fast material removal, and a swirl-free finish. The pad brake reduces free-spin for improved overall finish, and a control system regulates pad speed at start-up. The XOB01T uses quick-change 5 in. (8-hole) hook-and-loop abrasive paper for increased versatility. 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 18-Volt LXT and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
  • 3 speed settings (7,000/9,500/11,000 OPM) engineered for faster material removal
  • Up to 65 minutes (low speed) and 32-minutes (high speed) of run time on a single charge
  • 18-Volt LXT lithium-ion 5.0Ah battery BL1850B provides up to 65% more run time per charge
  • Large 1/8 in. random orbit action engineered for faster sanding and swirl-free finish
  • 1-touch electronic speed control switch provides fast, medium and low settings
  • Ergonomically designed body and grip for increased operator comfort
  • Pad brake engineered for reduced free-spin and improved overall finish
  • Pad control system for controlled pad speed upon start-up
  • Efficient through-the-pad dust collection system for a cleaner work environment
  • Dust-sealed switch and bearing for longer tool life
  • Uses quick-change 5 in. (8-hole) hook-and-loop abrasive paper
  • Oversized sealed-ball bearing construction for longer tool life
  • Equipped with star protection computer controls to protect against overloading, over-discharging and over-heating
  • 18-Volt LXT lithium-ion 5.0Ah battery BL1850B, features an integrated LED battery charge level indicator
  • 18-Volt LXT lithium-ion 5.0Ah battery BL1850B reaches a full charge in 45-minutes or less
  • 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
  • Rapid optimum charger has a built-in fan to cool the battery for faster, more efficient charging
  • Makita technology delivers category-leading charge time, so the battery spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger

Questions & Answers

what type of sanding disks are recommended for the 18-volt LXT cordless sander?

what type of sanding disks are recommended for the 18-volt LXT cordless sander?
Asked by: Dave
Any 5 inch loop backed sanding disk works. The holes in the paper disk will either assist or take away from the dust collection ability to function. There are a variety of manufacturers producing disk that will fit. Choose your paper for the job not for the brand name

Will this sander work with older 18v Li-ion lithium ion batteries ?

Will this sander work with older 18v Li-ion lithium ion batteries ?
Asked by: Peter
Depending on how old and the style of your battery . My batteries are 3-5 years old and they fit. However it highly recommend getting the largest one available to ensure longer use times. Otherwise you’ll be changing and charging batteries constantly. Plus added weight of the 40 amp battery removes arm fatigue and allows for even sanding

18-Volt 5.0Ah LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 5 in. Random Orbit Sander Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this because I have four 5 ah batteries from my Makita track saw (a special where they i... I bought this because I have four 5 ah batteries from my Makita track saw (a special where they included two extra batteries). I already have corded sanders that I'm happy with but thought I'd give this sander a try as the price was reasonable. So, onto my impressions. The great: -My 5 ah batteries can run this all day long. I've never had this run out of battery power during use. Since I have four of these batteries I'll just swap them out just in case it might run low but in my usage I've never had to swap due to low battery. The good: -Ergonomics. Easy to hold, well balanced. -Sound levels are on the quieter side. The neutral: -Power not up to corded versions. However, it's good enough to function for medium removal with 80 to 120 grit paper and works great for higher grit finishing work. The bad: -Dust collection is lacking. During operation I'll see dust leaking out from where the bag connects with the sander. Overall, this is not that big of a deal for me as I bought a big 42" Home Depot drum fan to cool my hot and humid garage and that blows any small wood dust away from me during a working session. Bottom line: I find myself grabbing this over my two corded Bosch sanders for most small sanding jobs. It's quicker and easier to use and has enough power to get most jobs done. If I have a big surface I go for my big 6" Bosch corded. It also can fit into the rotation as the sander that keeps the 120-220 grit paper on it so each sander can have a unique job. If like me and you have a surplus of Makita batteries then this is a great use for them.

This doesn't have the power of a corded sander, nor did I expect it to, but it's surprisingly capable and fantastic for small and/or outdoor jobs where it would be a real PITA to drag out a long extension cord. A good example is shown in the photo, sanding a dry rot repair patch on my eves.

Get the largest battery for this if you want to use it for more than 10 minutes! With the large battery, this is a fantastic tool! Variable speed, dust bag, powerful sanding. I have the corded version and prefer this one hands down! The added weight of the large battery gives way for even pressure sanding without arm fatigue! I’m a contractor: this was purchased for a rehab project of 5 large bay windows with poorly painted copper roofing . The sander removed layers of paint paint beautifully without damage to Copper! Also provided excellent prep on the wood frames section of the windows. The finished product looks like new construction without all the tough hand sanding! It’s a Very versatile tool and no cord made ladder work a breeze and much safer! I wish I had this tool sooner!
