Can I use the batteries I already have?

I have a pair of Makita 1834 18v 2.6 Ah Ni-MH batteries and charger for a cordless driver. Can I use these in this trimmer?
Asked by: Nettie
No, the Makita 18-Volt 2.6 Ah Ni-MH battery is a pod style battery, and it is not compatible with Makita 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion tools, including the 22 in. 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Hedge Trimmer (XHU02Z) you mentioned. Makita 18-Volt Lithium-Ion tools require Makita 18-Volt Lithium-Ion slide style batteries, which include the following: 18V Compact 2.0Ah (BL1820); 18V LXT 3.0Ah (BL1830); 18V LXT 4.0Ah (BL1840); 18V LXT 5.0Ah (BL1850).

I have a Makita 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Combo Kit (2-Tool) Model # LXT211. Can I use the batteries and charger that I already own?

The batteries are Makita 18V 3 Ah instead of 4 Ah.
Asked by: Doug
Yes, the Makita 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Battery 3.0 AH (BL1830) will work with both your Makita 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Combo Kit (XT211) and the Makita 22 in. 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Hedge Trimmer (XHU02Z).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sounds weak but does the job! I have quite the collection of Makita products from drills to die grinders and I feel they do a good job of replicating chorded tools power for a shorter time. When I first powered the hedge trimmer up I was really concerned that it wouldn't cut through anything, but it has cut everything I have put in front of it so far and the fact that you can just grab it and go is very nice! So far I have been pleasantly surprised with these trimmers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1 battery lasted for ever... I had a major trimming project to complete. I was going to trim the road that leads up to my driveway which is about 1.5 miles long. So I started out at one end with my brand new Makita cordless hedger and about 4 batteries. About 4 hours later after finishing up the complete road I only used 1 battery for the entire project. Actually that battery could have still provided power to do more work. The hedger not only cut every small item that I asked but even the occasional 1/2 stick that go in the way. I'm very happy with my purchase and thought at the start I should have purchased the 36 volt model but I'm very happy with the 18 volt unit. I would strongly recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! As powerful as gas, but no fumes or mess. I live on an acre and use this hedge trimmer every weekend to maintain the hedges around my home and the neighborhood median shrubs. I also own my own outdoor power equipment company. I received this as a gift and wasn't sure about the power of 18V lawn equipment, but let me tell you, there is no lack of power here! WOW!! I use a 3.0 Ah battery because that is all I need. I have a 5.0 Ah battery too because I have a slew of Makita 18V hand tools. Makita makes the best batteries and chargers, hands down. I use the Makita 18V hand vacuum too. I love that I only need one type of battery to power ALL my tools and equipment!!! Next I am buying the battery powered chainsaw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase I have been really impressed with this product it is built well and is not overweight, it cuts well and battery life is excellent! I highly recommend this hedge trimmer and it works with all the star series 18v products the 4.0-5.0 batteries are recommended, though the 3.0 amp battery works it performs better with the higher amperage batteries.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value This trimmer is great for the home owner with a moderate amount of trimming to do. Wish it was a little more powerful, but it's adequate considering the moderate price.
