Landscapers are demanding more cordless alternatives to corded and gas-powered outdoor power equipment. Makita is meeting demand with an expanding line-up of cordless ope, including the 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Brushless string trimmer (model XRU08Z, tool only). With zero emissions, lower noise, and considerably less maintenance, the 18V X2 cordless string trimmer is a welcome solution for landscapers. It’s compatible with Makita's fast-charging 18V LXT® batteries, and features an efficient Makita BL™ Brushless Motor for longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life. The XRU08Z has an adjustable speed dial (5,000/6, 000 RPM) and delivers up to 37 minutes of continuous run time under load on the high setting (44 minutes on low). The telescoping curved shaft easily adjusts from 60-1/2 in. to 64-1/2 in. in length, with a compact cutting head for precise trimming and edging. 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 Xenon-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. The XRU08Z features Makita extreme protection technology (XPT™). XPT™ is a protective seal inside the tool, and is engineered for improved operation in harsh conditions by channeling water and dust from key internal components.
