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.
