Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Makita 18V Caulking Gun

When I first heard about cordless caulk guns, my first thought was that they’d be about as useful as a cordless squirt gun. Then again, on a 95 degree Florida summer afternoon, a cordless squirt gun is about the best thing a Dad and his 7 year old twins could have! Likewise, the Makita 18V caulking gun is indispensable for professionals that need to dispense large amounts of caulks or adhesives. These  cordless dispensers are another in the more than 70 tools of the LXT family that all run off of the same Makita 18 volt battery.



Two Makita 18V caulking guns are available – the 10 ounce LXGC011 and the 20 ounce LXGC011B. Aside from dispensing volume, their features are identical. They boast 1100 pounds of dispensing force to deal with even the high viscosity adhesives and sealants. Makita tells us that the dispensing power is now top in this category! A 5 speed dial and variable speed trigger help to deliver up to 66 inches per minute. Built in LED lights illuminate work space where light is an issue. The folks at Makita were even good enough to design an overload indicator to help prevent breakage of the sealant cartridge.
