Makita LXT Brushless Motors Provide Longer Life - Learn Why

Makita's 18 Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Battery sends a surge of electricity through the tool's internal controller to power the Brushless motor. Inside the LXT Brushless motor, current is sent through the windings of the stator to power the rotation of the permanent magnetic rotor. This allows each revolution to run friction-free with maximum efficiency while running much cooler. And there are no carbon brushes to replace. Unlike LXT Brushless, the brushed motor runs with two carbon brushes that will require replacement after extended use And, the brushed motor's magnets are on the outside of the motor while the windings are on the inside, just the opposite of the more efficient LXT Brushless motor. The advantage? Makita LXT Brushless. The result? Longer motor life.
