Makita XRU04Z 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless String Trimmer, Tool Only

Landscapers are demanding more cordless alternatives to corded and gas-powered outdoor power equipment, and Makita delivered with the 18V LXT    lithium-ion brushless string trimmer (model XRU04Z, tool only). With zero emissions, lower noise, and considerably less maintenance, as well as category-leading battery charge time and unmatched breadth-of-line, this 18V cordless trimmer is a welcome solution for landscapers. Makita    s efficient BL     brushless motor is electronically controlled to optimize battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per 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 XRU04Z 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. It    s part of Makita    s expanding 18V lithium-ion series, the world    s largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18V lithium-ion slide-style battery. Makita 18V lithium-ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger. Efficient BL     brushless motor is electronically controlled to optimize battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per charge The BL     brushless motor eliminates carbon brushes, enabling the BL     motor to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life Easy-loading bump and feed trimmer head for increased user convenience Reverse rotation system allows operator to quickly clear trimmer head of entangled grass and weeds Overheat warning system turns on indicator light and is engineered to automatically stop motor
