Landscapers and contractors are demanding more cordless alternatives to gas-powered outdoor power equipment. Makita is meeting demand with an expanding line of cordless OPE that includes the 18-Volt X2 LXT Lithium-Ion (36-Volt) Brushless Cordless Couple Shaft Power Head. With zero emissions, lower noise and maximum versatility, the Power Head is a welcome solution for a range of trimming and cutting applications. It’s powered by two 18-Volt LXT batteries (sold separately) for maximum performance and run time without the hassles of gas and without leaving the 18-Volt battery platform. The Power Head is compatible with a variety of optional couple shaft attachments, with a lever style lock system for quick tool-less installation and replacement. It can be used with multiple attachments for trimming, edging, cultivating and brush cutting (sold separately). Note that kit XUX01ZM5 includes string trimmer attachment. 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. Electronic controls efficiently use battery energy to match the changing demands of the application for increased power and speed when needed. With no carbon brushes, the Makita BL Brushless motor runs cooler and more efficiently for longer life.

I've had two gas trimmers in the past the first was junk the second was hard to start. Decided after being so exhausted starting a gas trimmer I should get a battery trimmer, I have a few Makita 36 volt tools, I have the batteries all I need is the tool. I'm happy with all the Makita products and this trimmer is perfect, a very quality made product. I look forward to using it.

At first I had trouble keeping the head on but that was because I used hand tightening rather than with the attachment tool. That is a must.An amazing trimmer! I could say more.

Too many of us review these when they use it once.... battery life is excellent. Handling is very good, but Mikita now apparently sends a storage bag (pretty worthless but nicely made) rather than a shoulder strap!
