About This Product

The 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless String Trimmer (XRU02Z, tool only) is a versatile solution for landscape cutting and trimming, but without gasoline or a cord. It's part of Makita's expanding 18-Volt LXT series, the world's largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18-Volt Lithium-Ion battery. The Makita 18-Volt LXT battery has the fastest charge time in its category, so the battery spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger. The XRU02Z delivers 7,800 RPM and up to 45 minutes of run time on a single charge of the 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion 3.0 Ah battery (sold separately). It has several advantages over gas powered trimmers: the XRU02Z has zero emissions and reduced maintenance, with no need for gas or oil. For users, the tool is always ready to use: simply load a fully-charged 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion battery and get to work. Versatility features include a telescoping shaft to adjust the length of the tool, a 180° rotating head with 5 adjustable positions, an adjustable loop handle and more. It weighs only 6.4 lbs. with battery (sold separately).

              by|Aug 27, 2022

                A:  My drill also has 18v, 4ah, but the weed eater uses 18v, 5ah . I've used the drill battery, but it drains fast. The battery for the weed eater is twice the size of the drill battery. Are Makita LXT and compact batteries interchangeable? All new Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries are engineered with Star Protection and are fully compatible with Makita 18V LXT® and Compact Lithium-Ion tools that also carry the Star symbol.Jul 17, 2014

                  Really nice product. String is a little thin so it wears out quickly. Great for standard yard grass.

                  The trimmer does a great job. Better than using a gas trimmer.

                  I wanted to like it..
                  I got this yesterday. Just packed it up to return after using it on my yard. It's fine if you have light/dry grass and don't need super precision... in other words, it's for old lady style weed eating. The line is terrible and needs to be adjusted constantly. Had to re-string it after it fell apart. Total hassle. Hate it.
                  by
                    Easy to use. Did what a gas weed eater just without the pollution, and the struggles of cranking up every two to three weeks.

                    I bought as a present for my Husband. He liked the lighter weight than his gas weed eater. I wouldn't use the gas one but this one I could use. Like the easy start too.

                    Light yet powerful enough to do the job of trimming the grass around the sprinkler heads and fence. Much better than trying to use a small trimmer
