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).

Really nice product. String is a little thin so it wears out quickly. Great for standard yard grass.

A little overpowered compared to other brands I've tried for wireless trimmers. Worked well though, and if you have their batteries and drill it's worth to keep with the same line. Easy to put together.
