    • Description

      The 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless String Trimmer (XRU02Z, tool only) is a versatile solution for landscape cutting and trimming, but without gasoline or a cord. It's part of Makita's expanding 18-Volt LXT series, the world's largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18-Volt Lithium-Ion battery. The Makita 18-Volt LXT battery has the fastest charge time in its category, so the battery spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger. The XRU02Z delivers 7,800 RPM and up to 45 minutes of run time on a single charge of the 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion 3.0 Ah battery (sold separately). It has several advantages over gas powered trimmers: the XRU02Z has zero emissions and reduced maintenance, with no need for gas or oil. For users, the tool is always ready to use: simply load a fully-charged 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion battery and get to work. Versatility features include a telescoping shaft to adjust the length of the tool, a 180° rotating head with 5 adjustable positions, an adjustable loop handle and more. It weighs only 6.4 lbs. with battery (sold separately).

      So, let's start with pro's and con's Pro's - Comfortable, It is very light and easy to switch from hand to hand for long stretches. - Efficient, it'll run 20+ minutes on a less-than-full 3.0ah battery, longer than it takes to charge said battery, so there's really no downtime beyond switching batteries. - Ergonomic, It's comfortable to use, and easy to alter the shaft length or head angle. - Battery powered, not having to deal with gas or extension cords is a huge benefit. Con's - Power, it handles tall thin stalks, but any kind of dense or lush clumps of grass will bog it down. You can deal with them, but it will take half a dozen careful/slow passes, or else the motor just bogs down. - Line, the .08 line is just weak, it frays, and you can run through a spool pretty quickly. - Capacity, in addition to the low power, it only cuts a 10" diameter on a pass, and you can't really even do that on thick grass. Even a small yard can take 2-3x longer than it would take with a traditional model. Ultimately this is pretty clearly built for subdivisions with perfectly flat, herbicided or weeded lawns. It's just more trouble than it's worth for an average yard with dips and weed clumps.. I will be returning mine and finding something bigger.

      Pros Easy to Store, Easy to Use, Light Weight Cons low power, small cutting radius
