Makita is meeting demand with an expanding line-up of cordless OPE, including the 18-Volt X2 (36-Volt) LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless String Trimmer Kit (model XRU09Z, tool only, batteries and charger sold separately). With zero emissions, lower noise and considerably less maintenance, the 18-Volt X2 (36-Volt) LXT cordless string trimmer is a welcome solution for landscapers.

With the efficient Makita BL brushless motor, the trimmer delivers longer run time, more power and speed, and longer tool life. In addition, the string trimmer rotates in the same counter-clockwise direction as professional-grade trimmers, and uses industry standard spindles (M10x1.25 LH) for added convenience.

A little heavy. A strap would have been nice. Doesn't have the power of a gas trimmer but it does a very good job. We'll satisfied. Bump feed works well. 2- 5amp batteries have enough run time to do my whole house and plenty more. Ease of use and performance are worth the price.

Fantastic addition to my widening array of 18 volt tools. Love the product We need 2 items. 1 power pack Use 2-4 18 volt to give customers a plug in for computers or small items that are not supported by the Makita system. Last thing is to get a belt sander and a disc sander
