Makita XPK02Z 18V LXT Lithium‑Ion Brushless Cordless Planer
The 18V LXT® Brushless Cordless 3-1/4” Planer, AWS™ Capable, Tool Only (XPK02Z) is engineered for door and window installers, finish carpenters, deck installers, remodelers, and general contractors seeking a brushless cordless planer.
The planer delivers 12,000 RPM for fast stock removal. It will plane up to 3-1/4” wide and 1/8” deep in a single pass. A Makita-built brushless motor eliminates carbon brushes, enabling the motor to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life. A 2-blade cutter head and double-edge carbide blades for added performance and a smooth finish.
Other features include a spring-loaded stand to elevate the base and protect the blades and work piece and a click-depth adjustment knob has an easy-to-read scale with settings from 0” to 7/64” for precise depth adjustment. In addition, the precision-machined aluminum base is engineered for increased planning accuracy and offers three chamfering groove options. Chip ejection can be directed to either side of the tool for convenience. The blade setting system is engineered for fast blade installation, with an electric brake for maximum productivity.
The Makita® LXT Cordless System, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries, takes a user from power tools to outdoor power equipment to get the job done. Makita 18V LXT Batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.
Auto-Start Wireless System (AWS™) uses Bluetooth® technology for wireless power-on and power-off communication between the equipped tool and dust extractor. Once connected via AWS, the AWS-equipped dust extractor will automatically power on or off when the AWS-equipped cordless tool starts or stops, running only when the tool is in use. This increases productivity on a single charge and reduces continuous noise at the job or work site. AWS is activated with an AWS Wireless Transmitter (198901-5, sold separately).
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 Lithium-Ion Batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
