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 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless String Trimmer (model XRU08Z, tool only). With zero emissions, lower noise and considerably less maintenance, the 18-Volt X2 cordless string trimmer is a welcome solution for landscapers. Itâ€™s compatible with Makitaâ€™s fast-charging 18-Volt 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. Makitaâ€™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. The XRU08Z features Makita Extreme Protection Technology (XPT).
