About This Product

XGT Outdoor Power Equipment delivers gas-like performance demanded by professional landscapers. The 40V max XGT Brushless Cordless Couple Shaft Power Head with string trimmer attachment (GUX01ZX1, tool only) delivers the power of a 30cc gas string trimmer. With zero emissions, lower noise and maximum versatility, the power head provides a cordless solution for heavy-load trimming and cutting applications. The power head is compatible with a variety of optional couple shaft attachments. It features a lever-style lock system for quick tool-less installation and attachment replacement. It can be used with multiple attachments for trimming, edging, cultivating, and brush cutting (sold separately). Note that GUX01ZX1 includes a string trimmer attachment. A variable speed trigger controls cutting speed with three speed options (4,200, 6,000, and 7,100 RPM), allowing users to match power and speed to the changing demands of the application. For added durability in harsh job site conditions, Extreme Protection Technology (XPT) is engineered for improved dust and water resistance. The power head also features IPX4-rated weather-resistant construction for added durability.

        Another quality lawn tool
        Once you invest in teal, you might as well roll with it. The power head in this kit does a great job in powering multiple lawn care tools. The string trimmer is just an added bonus. One reviewer mentioned the string not feeding properly? The power head needs to be on "2" and spinning at a certain RPM before it will advance the trimmer line. This is another quality item, and I am very satisfied with this purchase. These 40v XGT tools provide plenty of power in my experience.

          Don't need my gas trimmer anymore!
          I bought this to replace my gas powered Trimmer and wow am I happy. Super powerful and lighter with none of the problems of a gas powered trimmer.
