Item #
80% of 100

Makita's XOB01Z Cordless 5'' Random Orbit Sander delivers smooth sanding, a raft of convenient features and up to 40 minutes of run time on a single charge (battery sold separately). Its three speed settings are easily accessible with the one-touch electronic control switch. The large 1/8'' random orbit action promotes efficient sanding, fast material removal, and a swirl-free finish, while the pad brake reduces free-spin for improved finish, and a control system regulates the pad speed at start-up. Star Protection technology lets the sander exchange data with the battery to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating. Excellent ergonomics and comfortable grips round out this already excellent orbital sander.


  • Three speed settings (7,000/9,500/11,000 OPM) allow you to tailor the pad speed to your application
  • Up to 65 minutes (low speed) and 32 minutes (high speed) of run time on a single charge
  • Large 1/8'' random orbit action for fast sanding and swirl-free finish
  • One-touch electronic speed control switch toggles between fast, medium and low settings
  • Ergonomically designed body and grip for operator comfort
  • Pad brake engineered for reduced free-spin and improved overall finish
  • Pad control system for controlled pad speed upon start-up
  • Efficient through-pad dust collection for a cleaner work environment
  • Dust-sealed switch and bearing for longer tool life
  • Uses 5'' diameter (8-hole) hook-and-loop abrasive paper
  • Oversized sealed-ball bearing construction for longer tool life
  • Equipped with Star Protection Computer Controls™ to protect against overloading, over-discharging and over-heating
  • Compatible with Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries with a Star symbol (battery and charger sold separately)

18 V Mikita products are excellent quality
Plug in the battery and go. Almost dustless, fast working and quiet. Plenty of power and battery life.

I love this sander.
I have 8 other sander and this is my go to sander for detail work. I'm a cabinet maker would recommend to anyone, especially if you have Makita's 18 volt tools. I've had mine for two years with no problems.

need to get CORDLESS!!
Glenn M on Aug 27, 2019
does this work with the regular rechargeable makita lithium battery and if so where does it attach?
harry l on Aug 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. In the Tech Details it lists Battery: 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion as the battery used. I have several Makita tools and they all share this same battery. I was confused about where the battery attaches as well before I ordered it (new and better pictures needed for the web site). The battery slips on behind the motor. Great little sander. I highly recommend it. I love Makita tools.
