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).

Answer: 
Yes. Other lithium batteries will work for this trimmer. I have an impact and regular drill. They all use the same battery. One of the pluses with this trimmer.

Answer: 
It's a single wire feed. The bump and feed system works pretty well, although I'm not a great fan of them. Pre-spooled cartridges are just easy to deal with.

Answer: 
The trimmer comes with line already spooled on the cutter head, and comes with spare line. You will have to re-wind the spook yourself after it runs out.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good product Love this weedeater! Perfect for lawn care, lightweight, and more power than I expected. Not for use on really heavy stuff, but excellent for grass and light weeds. gave it 3 stars because the handle was not in the box. I took one off an old electric trimmer and it worked, rather than go thru all that other, if you know what i mean. A good product and I use the batteries already on my makita cordless tools. September 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice It's light, wife able to use. Plenty of power for around my house September 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid addition to the Makita cordless tool family Ever since I purchased a my Makita drill I have been hooked on their cordless products. When my Craftsman trimmer bit the dust after less than 2 years I decided to get the Makita tool. It worked great in trimming around the lawn. The product is relatively lightweight and I liked that Makita threw in some free trimmer cord and even protective eyewear. September 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool! Exceeded my expectations. Tool performs well, and the Makita battery is key to the overall performance. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It's Makita Home depot price was good as amazon and shipping was much faster than amazon. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by better than gas good string trimmer. I like that all i have to do is attach the battery and go. Has plenty of power to edge my lawn and trim around my brick in the flower beds twice before recharging the batteries. 2 of my neighbors have borrowed it and already bought there own August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Like a boss I upgraded to this when my brand new Ryobi weed whacker's battery died. It is more than enough for the average homeowner. If I had not just got a new battery from another Makita tool though, I would say it's a bit too expensive. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makita electric cordless trimmer Very good. I don't use it too much but when I do that thing works great, without struggling with a cord or having to pull a cord, that's awesome!!! July 26, 2016
