About This Product

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.

          Great weed eater if you are already into the makita platform, pricey but quality i don't see on others like vibration dampening handle. It also seems to contain flying rocks less then my gas model. I use the edger attachment for my curb areas, definitely better then string trimming those long areas.

          Great product and woth the extra power and heavy string it really cuts through the weeds. It's strange that it comes with the nut for attaching a blade but not the cup and clamp? You need all three to make it work.

          The couple shaft motor is powerful and the 36v battery pack lasted longer than anticipated. I used Makita’s edger then string trimmer attachments to edge and clear about 1000’ of sidewalks and driveway. The string trimmer easily handled thick embedded grass, weeds, and dirt. My older trimmer could not do the job as easily. Once the handle position and shoulder strap are adjusted the couple shaft and attachments are comfortable and easy to operate.

            Man this tool works great! The best part was adding two extensions and a pole saw to get the high branches off the roof and house. Two extensions does take a bit of handling and posture but can be done. Great tool Makita!

                Great weedeater which has a lot of torque. If you have a large yard, buy several batteries and keep them charged, you may need several to finish your job.
