The 18V LXT Lithium-Ion cordless 10 oz. Caulk and adhesive gun (XGC01Z, tool only) is a versatile, powerful, and lightweight solution for any contractor dispensing large amounts of caulk and adhesives. It’s part of Makita's expanding 18V Lithium-Ion series, the world’s largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. 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. The XGC01Z delivers 1,100 lbs. of dispensing force for even the highest viscosity adhesives and sealants. The XGC01Z features a 5-speed dial with 0 to 66 In. per minute (IPM), and a variable speed trigger that allows the user to optimize the flow rate according to the application. It has a compact design at 15-7/8 in. with less weight (only 5.1 lbs. with 18V LXT battery, sold separately). Convenience features include a 360° rotatable cartridge holder that fits 10 oz. and 300 mL cartridges, as well as a built-in L.E.D. light that illuminates the work area for improved visibility. The XGC01Z also features an overload indicator light that notifies the operator when the tool is nearly overloaded to minimize breakage of the sealant cartridge.
