Landscapers and contractors are demanding more cordless alternatives to corded and gas-powered outdoor power equipment. Makita is meeting demand with an expanding line of cordless OPE, including the Makita 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Hedge Trimmer (model XHU02M1). With zero emissions, lower noise, and considerably less maintenance, the XHU02M1 is a welcome solution for trimming applications. The XHU02M1 has a Makita-built motor that delivers 1,350 SPM and a 22 in. blade for increased cutting capacity. The XHU02M1 will run up to 120 minutes on the low setting on a single charge using an 18-Volt LXT 4.0Ah battery. Cordless technology also means lower noise, and at only 87 dB(A) the XHU02Z is 25% quieter than other cordless hedge trimmers. It's part of Makita's expanding 18-Volt Lithium-Ion system, the world's largest cordless tool system powered by 18-Volt Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries. Makita 18-Volt Lithium-Ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.

Bypassing the safety mechanism using electric tape on handle works, but it is a bad idea.

Makita products are designed after numerous hours researching the professional user with a focus on the needs of the pro. Premium commercial grade durability are seen in every aspect of Makita products. Makita’s purpose built motors are also specifically designed for the researched tool application and to work with Makita batteries to deliver both more power and run time. With the XHU02 hedge trimmer, the power and run time achieved on the 18V platform surpasses competitive products that need 40V or 56V. This results in a lightweight, powerful tool that will run longer and is built to last. The XHU02 hedge trimmer in particular is able to deliver up to 1-1/2 hours or run time using an 18V LXT® 4.0Ah battery without sacrificing speed and power at an impressive 2,700 SPM. With a dual, action double-sided steel blade, the user will experience clean, fast cuts.

How much does it weigh with the battery attached?

That is a good question, I have not weighed the hedge trimmer although I am in my early 60's and never experienced any tiredness or muscle soreness.

What size or diameter branch can this accept? 3/8, 1/2, or 5/8"?

Asked by HankTCD October 14, 2019

Answers

I would not cut anything thicker than 3/16" green branches. Dried wood is much harder to cut so smaller diameter on dry wood

Strong light weight. It’s cutting through my redwood shoots that grow crazy. The battery lasted close to 2 hours. Crazy lightweight easy to handle. I was told to go with gas trimmers. This little guy does the trick.

This paired w/ 3ah battery will last about 45 minutes!
So I purchased this Makita hedge trimmer and I paired it with my 3ah battery. On full charge it will probably last about 45 minutes of nonstop work! I have used it for 15-20 minutes so far and it still has 3/4th battery charge left!

This trimmer is awesome! Just as powerful as corded, more than some. I considered the 2 battery model. Not necessary unless you are a professional. I have trimmed big, thick and long hedges. Never ran out of power.

Powerful, relatively quiet, and smooth just like the typical Makita tool. Considering a battery hangs from the handle it's also not terribly heavy and also balanced well. The trigger is a bit cumbersome in the sense it takes you looking the first couple times to see where to line your hands up to engage it. It takes two hands, while it's not as convenient in some ways as my old hedge trimmer it does keep a person from using one hand to run the machine and using the other hand to say hold a branch where an operator may unwillingly cut into their own hand/fingers. I had thought about spending the extra and purchasing the 2x18=36v version but I'm happy with this one. It's lighter and I don't have a lot to trim anyway. I already had 6 other Makita 18v tools so adding this instead of another electric or gas version made sense. I kind of need a longer telescoping and angle adjustable one for the very top of my hedges to keep from using a ladder. Someday if Makita adds that tool I'd buy it. One con could be the scabbard for the blade is a bit of a hassle to put back on.
