18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Electric Cordless String Trimmer (Tool Only) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 70.

Adjusting the trimmer head to different positions is very easy and I have used it to trim edges, which it works well for. It is light-weight and easy to maneuver. The batteries I use are only 1.5 (got 2 with my drill/driver set) and they are sufficient for what I have to trim. The telescoping shaft works well and makes it a little more versatile. My only complaint is that I wish it were a few inches longer. I am 6'3" and I have to stoop slightly to keep the cutter head level. That's not a big deal to me since I am trimming a relatively small area but someone who is taller than me and has back issues might care.

Received the trimmer yesterday, easily assembled it in 10 minutes this morning and took outside immediately to edge lawn. Plenty of power, I used a fresh 4.0Ah 18V Lithium-Ion battery (BL1840B) from another Makita tool and it had more than half a charge left after 30 minutes of use. LOVE that it is cordless. Works about as well as previous corded trimmer, although the bump-feed on this is less convenient than old auto-feed. Also, single-line cutting string took some getting used to, the previous 2-line head was a bit faster. Convenience of working without 75' cord more than outweighs shortcomings.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't Lasr I bought the makita brand because of the quality of their products and also it uses the same batteries as my other cordless tools. It is less than 3 summers old and the motor has locked up. My lot size is 100X150 and I could not trim without recharging the both batteries. I do like their products but thoroughly disappointed with this item. I will not purchase another makita string trimmer.

The only thing is it could use a little more power. It will work great for my property. I wouldn't recommend for commercial use. But, I am glad that I purchased it. Thank you, Ann Lindsley

It certainly has the best power in its class, but for really tall weeds I wish I had gone with the next model up. The run time on this model is very impressive. The only thing I didn't like was Home Depot's shipping. Box arrived open.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little weed wacker It has nowhere near the power of a gas weed wacker but that's exactly what makes it great for small yards, you can get the nookes and crannies and make a little mistake without taking a huge chunk out of your grass
