About This Product

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 Kit (model XRU15PT1). 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 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.

Highlights

  • 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 to 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
  • 15 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
  • 3-year limited warranty on tool, battery and charger

          Jury is out
          Jury is still out. Have used it a few times. Not impressed yet. Going from a corded weed eater to this. The freedom is nice. A little on the heavy side. The control for me is an issue, need more practice. Takes me twice as long to edge my small yard. This throws grass everywhere, including yourself. Obviously you shouldn't wear shorts when using this type of equipment but in phx az you take that gamble in the summer. Would be afraid to use this with shorts. Been blasted by my corded one a few times pretty good but using this one, you would be bleeding everytime. You should have safety glasses on anyway while weed eating but definitely needed when using this. Again maybe it is a technique thing i am missing. I've never used a gas one to compare the two. Battery life is fantastic.

          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.

          This thing goes through tall weeds without a problem. A set of 5Ah batteries will run for about an hour while running a mix of medium and the high settings. Works just as well as my old gas powered unit. My only dislike is the small shield, I feel that it could be a bit larger. Other than that, I like it a lot.
