A fine finish with Makita


Leading power tool manufacturer, Makita UK has introduced new cordless finishing sanders to its range. Delivering increased efficiency and mobility to woodworkers, the 18V DBO381 and DBO380 Brushless Finishing Sanders join the company’s growing line-up of LXT battery powered, cordless tools. 

Featuring three speed settings (4,000 / 8,000 / 12,000 OPM) to match the speed to the application, both models provide up to 50-minutes of run time on a single 6.0Ah battery. The 18V sanders have been engineered for efficient sanding with an impressive 2mm orbit that removes material quickly for a swirl free, flawless finish.

For improved efficiency and user mobility, the DBO381ZU features Makita’s Auto-start Wireless System (AWS) so that the sander can be paired with a compatible vacuum for on demand dust extraction. Utilising Bluetooth technology, AWS wirelessly powers the extraction unit on and off using the tool trigger. Furthermore, a dust box is provided with the tool as standard, and the extraction port allows for connection to any dust extraction system.

For corner sanding, the front grip is detachable and the tool-less paper clamp fastening system allows for quick paper changes and secure fastening. Constant speed control maintains the operating speed under load, optimising operation and providing the user with an even finish.

Speaking on the new products, Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita UK said: “We are pleased to offer woodworkers more efficient working with our new LXT cordless Finishing Sanders. The tools feature an impressive brushless motor that enables fast material removal and an ergonomic grip for comfortable operation with either one hand, or two hands. The sanders join an expanding range of over 270 LXT tools that offer professionals the flexibility to seamlessly switch between tasks, using just one battery system, with a cordless solution for every type of application.”
