Product Overview

The 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless String Trimmer (XRU02Z, tool only) is a versatile solution for landscape cutting and trimming, but without gasoline or a cord. It's part of Makita's expanding 18-Volt LXT series, the world's largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18-Volt Lithium-Ion battery. The Makita 18-Volt LXT battery has the fastest charge time in its category, so the battery spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger. The XRU02Z delivers 7,800 RPM and up to 45 minutes of run time on a single charge of the 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion 3.0 Ah battery (sold separately). It has several advantages over gas powered trimmers: the XRU02Z has zero emissions and reduced maintenance, with no need for gas or oil. For users, the tool is always ready to use: simply load a fully-charged 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion battery and get to work. Versatility features include a telescoping shaft to adjust the length of the tool, a 180° rotating head with 5 adjustable positions, an adjustable loop handle and more. It weighs only 6.4 lbs. with battery (sold separately).

18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Electric Cordless String Trimmer (Tool Only) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I purchased this machine because my gas powered trimmer was in the shop and I felt this would mak... I purchased this machine because my gas powered trimmer was in the shop and I felt this would make a nice backup. After all I have several Makita battery tools so no need to purchase batteries or charger. Unfortunately both trimmers were ready for pickup the same time. When I got the Makita I also looked for string available and was disappointed to find not much to nothing available in string variations. I assembled the Makita quickly and with ease and tried it out around my fountain. The quiet operation was unusual but not a bad thing and the machine operated very well and with ease. The string is a disappointment. Why didn't they simply engineer this thing to accept the heavier commercial quality strings that come in various styles for better cutting? It took this machine a lot more time to cut the little grass as compared to my 4 stroke gas. The main difference down at the weed itself was simple the type of string. Makita needs to man up and design for the better string. If you are accustomed to skinny string and taking a long time to get it done then you might enjoy it. I was torn between returning it or hang it up for next time I need a backup.

It came with all the parts intact, easy to assemble, and came with extra string. It has plenty of power for my small yard and my 6 year old batteries still have long staying power. Love Makita products...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only for lightweight applications such as a lawn. Well designed and easy to use but the .065 line... Only for lightweight applications such as a lawn. Well designed and easy to use but the .065 line is just too wimpy when faced with tough Bermuda Grass, a common problem in the Sonoran Desert.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functionality The equipment works well and consider it a good addition for the home garden duties. Ideal is the one type of batteries, Accu, serves so many tools. I hope, not to stop development, that Makita, maintains the design of the batterie and not comes up with a new connection , so the collection of tools does not need to get replaced. The supplied cord could be a little stronger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for my needs. Bought this to replace a Troy Bilt. Got Tired of messing around with gas powered trimmer and had the batteries already from my drill set. Like that I just have to Slap in a battery and I'm good to go. This is perfect for my small yard, have trimmed the yard 3 times now without recharging. No complaints here.
