  • Zero Emissions and Reduced Maintenance; No Need for Gas or Oil
  • Bump and feed trimmer head for convenience
  • Shop the String Trimmers
Landscapers are demanding more cordless alternatives to gas-powered outdoor power equipment. Makita is meeting demand with an expanding system of cordless OPE, including the 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Curved Shaft String Trimmer (model XRU13Z, tool only, batteries and charger sold separately). With zero emissions, lower noise, and considerably less maintenance, this cordless string trimmer is a welcome solution for landscapers. Its compatible with Makita's fast-charging 18-Volt LXT batteries, and features an efficient Makita BL brushless motor for longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life. The efficient brushless motor delivers up to 6,000 RPM for faster cutting. The XRU13Z is equipped with Automatic Speed Change technology which automatically shifts from 4,000-6,000 RPM adjusting the speed and torque depending on density of application. There are also 3 speed options in manual mode (4,000/5,000/6,000 RPM), allowing users to match the speed to the application. Users will get up to 38-minutes of run time on high setting and 103-minutes on low setting under load using an 18-Volt LXT 5.0Ah battery (sold separately). Additional features include a full 11-3/4 cutting swath, an easy-loading bump-and-feed trimmer head, and reverse rotation that allows users to quickly clear the head of entangled grass and weeds. The trimmer accepts industry standard M8x1.25 LH spindles.
  • Automatic speed change technology automatically adjusts cutting speed (4,000-6,000 RPM) and torque depending on density of application
  • Manual operation mode features 3-speed options (low: 4,000 RPM, medium: 5,000 RPM, high: 6,000 RPM) allowing the operator to match speed to application
  • Telescoping curved shaft adjusts (59-1/2 in. - 63-1/2 in. L) for convenient operation in tight places
  • Delivers up to 38-minutes of run time on high setting and 103-minutes on low setting under load using 18-Volt LXT 5.0Ah battery BL1850B (battery not included)
  • 11-3/4 in. cutting swath for user convenience
  • Utilizes industry standard M8 x 1.25 RH spindle for added convenience
  • Easy-loading bump and feed trimmer head for increased user convenience
  • Bump and feed trimmer head rotates clockwise to help direct grass clippings away from operator
  • Reverse rotation system allows operator to quickly clear trimmer head of entangled grass and weeds
  • Weighs only 7.4 lbs. with battery (battery not included) for reduced operator fatigue
  • Efficient BL brushless motor is electronically controlled to optimize battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per charge
  • Overheat warning system turns on indicator light and is engineered to automatically stop motor
  • Extreme protection technology (XPT) is engineered for improved dust and water resistance for operation in harsh conditions
  • Equipped with star protection computer controls to protect against overloading, over-discharging and over-heating
  • Rapid optimum charger communicates with the battery's built-in chip throughout the charging process to optimize the battery life by actively controlling current, voltage and temperature (battery and charger not included)
  • Rapid optimum charger has a built-in fan to cool the battery for faster, more efficient charging (battery and charger not included)
  • Makita technology delivers category-leading charge time, so the battery spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger (battery not included)

18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Curved Shaft String Trimmer (Tool-Only) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.

I run it at slow speed and it is enough to cut through anything. Designed to use very little string. Get the double string like this one is, not the single string. Very, very light weight 10# max. I hurt my back a long time ago in football and the gas powered trimmers just throw my back out, this does not do that. I am looking to buy other tools also! Got two drills that are the best ever!!!! Only negative is the head sometimes comes unscrewed, you need to check it every time which is a good practice anyways. Have had this about a month and it meets and exceeds my expectations! Great job on this Makita!!!! Moonpie

The features like auto off are not intrusive and help prolong battery life. The guard is easy to use or stow out of the way. The light weight of the tool and ergonomic design are a win.

It is easy to assemble and worked flawlessly. It has plenty of power and I get several uses out of a single charge on a 2 hour rated battery.
