Makita LXOB01


Recommended Posts

Looks like Makita finally released their LXOB01 18V cordless orbital sander in the states. It's an interesting concept and early reviews indicate "surprising runtime". While the $279 kit price is a bit steep for a sander, those already vested in the LXT line may find the $109 bare tool price a risk worth taking. Any thoughts?

I can't really see the use for this as a cordless tool, although I'm sure someone will find a use for it. Makitas 18v multi tool would be much more appropriate as a detail sander for the work that I end up with.

LOL B&D have made some crap over the years and so have Rockwell LOL

Both companies started out with first rate products and then hopped on the "value engineering" bandwagon and ended up poorly. This is what happens when people get greedy.
