Product Overview

Landscapers are demanding more cordless alternatives to gas-powered outdoor power equipment. Makita is meeting demand with an expanding line-up of cordless OPE, including the 18-Volt X2 (36-Volt) LXT Brushless Cordless String Trimmer, Tool Only (model XRU15Z). With zero emissions, lower noise and considerably less maintenance than gas-powered string trimmers, the 18-Volt X2 (36-Volt) LXT Cordless String Trimmer is a welcome solution for landscapers. It's powered by 2 fast-charging 18-Volt LXT Batteries (sold separately) for maximum power and run time, but without leaving the strongly-preferred 18-Volt battery platform. Electronic controls efficiently use battery energy to match the changing demands of the application for increased power and speed when needed. 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. With the efficient Makita BL brushless motor, the trimmer delivers longer run time, more power and speed, and longer tool life. Makita's efficient BL Brushless motor is electronically controlled to optimize battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per battery charge than similar non-brushless tools. The XRU15Z features a Makita-built Outer Rotor Brushless Motor with direct drive which provides high power and increased torque.
  • Up to 1.5-hours of run time with 18-Volt LXT 5.0 Ah batteries (batteries not included)
  • Makita-built outer rotor BL brushless motor direct-drive system provides high power and increased torque
  • Automatic Torque Drive technology mode automatically shifts from 3,500 RPM - 6,500 RPM for extended run time or added power
  • 3-speed options (low: 3,500 RPM, medium: 5,300 RPM, high: 6,500 RPM) for power management
  • 1 in. cutting swath for increased productivity
  • Includes bump and feed trimmer head loaded with 0.080 in. twisted quiet line
  • Steel drive shaft for less vibration and longer life
  • Reverse rotation function allows operator to quickly clear trimmer head of entangled grass and weeds
  • Adjustable loop handle for operator comfort
  • Extreme Protection technology (XPT) is engineered for improved dust and water resistance for operation in harsh job site conditions
  • Equipped with Star Protection computer controls to protect against overloading, over-discharging and over-heating
  • Batteries and charger not included
  • 3-year limited warranty

To me, the best battery powered trimmer out there. I have nothing negative to say about this trimmer. However, I am disappointed that I received my trimmer, battery charger, and two batteries on one week and on the next week they had the same outfit with two extra batteries for a little more money. It will now cost me $200. more for two extra batteries. Not happy about that.

This one really works like a gas trimmer. I even cut black berries with it. It goes thru long grass without a hick-up. The extra batteries keep me going as long as I wish. I had to watch a youtube video to figure out changing the sting but pretty easy.

I was reluctant to go electric from my Stihl. But, this has turned out to be vastly superior - my expectations have truly been exceeded. It's light, incredibly powerful and w/ 4 batteries, you never have to worry about waiting for them to charge.

        Great gas trimmer replacement if you have the batteries
        So I bought this baby last October. it's been a year so I feel certain and comfortable reviewing this. This replaced a 25cc Echo that's at least 12 years old. I'm already on the Makita cordless platform so I had plenty of batteries, keep that in mind. First this sucker has the oomph. it's got plenty of power, specially for a wireless trimmer. Wet grass, tall grass and the occasional vine, it's all game. This little fella delivers. However...A yes, the however, well, first it doesn't like thicker line, anything above .85 and you're pushing it, .105 is practically out of the question. Two, even with the .085 line, in the highest power setting, this thing hogs battery charge. Don't get me wrong, that's where it outperformed my old Echo 25cc but a set of 5ah batteries will give you 30 minutes at best. That's why I said if you have the batteries. In my case no problem, I have two 5ah and four 4ah and that's plenty to keep you working while charging but for someone coming from cero will find it a difficult proposal. Makita original batteries do add up and a some point it becomes a cero sum game, but it you own 18v tools and batteries and are looking to ditch the gas mixing, this baby deserts chance. No attachments tho, just trimming.

            Battery life about what I expected, seems to go forever...
            Battery life about what I expected, seems to go forever on low setting which is enough for light work, normal trimming with every mowing. Cutting heavy grass on a neglected fence line the high setting has plenty of power with the trade off of significantly diminished battery life, I can except that given the benefits of a battery vs 2 stroke oil burner. My only issue is the small cord reel. It holds 9’, I load my husky with 24’. I found this irritating. Looking for a replacement reel, with this upgrade I would have given it 5 stars.

              This trimmer is more, much more powerful than my old gasoline powered one. I am very pleased with it.
