      Q:What is the difference between the 4Ah and the 5Ah battery? Can the XNU01 hedge use either one? Thanks.
      by|Mar 31, 2023
      3 Answers
      Answer This Question

      A:  It has to do with battery life. 4Ah gives 4 amp hours of power; 5 gives 5 amps. The 5 amp battery has a longer life, but in this tool a 4Ah will last a long time. I have some old (10 years old) 3 amp batteries and they still last a long time as this tool doesn't draw massive power (unlike my chain saws and blowers which need much more frequent battery changes).

        A:  The larger the number the longer the battery life.  This will use either.  The 4 is adequate for most homes.

          A:  Thank you for your question on the XNU01Z hedge trimmer. This tool can use the following batteries. BL1830,BL1830B, BL1840B, BL1850B, BL1860B. The difference between the batteries is in the Amp hours.

              well made, quality tool.
              Being heavily invested in the lxt 18v and 36v Makita tool line, I invested in the Makita articulatingvpole hedge trimmer. This is one fantastic, well built tool. Blades are well machined and construction of the tool is superb.

                Having grown awfully tired of hand-trimming all my shrubs and small trees every summer, I finally shopped around and decided to get this wonderful Pole Hedge Trimmer. It cut my trimming time down to a fraction of what I used to do. I’m an octogenarian, and I no longer want to climb a ladder to get to tall shrubs up over my head. This did a fabulous job. I had read on some reviews of other pole trimmers that older people have a hard time with the weight of some, but I never found this to be an issue with this top-notch piece of equipment. I’m very happy with it. Next I’ll trim the barberry bushes with the sharp jaggers and keep well away from it to do the job.

                I am a professional Landscape maintenance provider and I am working my way into the realm of electric power equipment. I already have Makita 18V hand tools and so I expanded to some landscape tools. The tool is light and sturdy with a professional grade blade and I have done many hedges of various sizes and textures and it has performed excellently so far! On the number 2 setting of the three it has I can hedge for a few hours with a 5.0 battery! Hedges with tight growth needs the 3rd setting. Time for some more of these LXT tools!

                Makita hedge clipper
                Needed to trim a very large juniper hedge with branches up to 3/4” in diameter. This worked perfectly, on the big branches it would just saw through them. The size is of the clipper, is a little hard to control, but it gets the job done. I would definitely buy it again.

                Great piece of equipment, that is functional and works as expected. My only complaint is that after pay this much money it should include a shoulder harness.
