Makita XRU15Z 18-Volt X2 (36-Volt) LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless String Trimmer (Tool Only)
Landscapers are demanding more cordless alternatives to gas-powered outdoor power equipment. Makita is meeting demand with an expanding line-up of cordless OPE, including the 18-Volt X2 (36-Volt) LXT Brushless Cordless String Trimmer, Tool Only (model XRU15Z). With zero emissions, lower noise and considerably less maintenance than gas-powered string trimmers, the 18-Volt X2 (36-Volt) LXT Cordless String Trimmer is a welcome solution for landscapers. It’s powered by 2 fast-charging 18-Volt LXT Batteries (sold separately) for maximum power and run time, but without leaving the strongly-preferred 18-Volt battery platform.
Electronic controls efficiently use battery energy to match the changing demands of the application for increased power and speed when needed. In addition, the string trimmer rotates in the same counter-clockwise direction as professional-grade trimmers, and uses industry standard spindles (M10x1.25 LH) for added convenience. With the efficient Makita BL brushless motor, the trimmer delivers longer run time, more power and speed, and longer tool life. 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 non-brushless tools. The XRU15Z features a Makita-built Outer Rotor Brushless Motor with direct drive which provides high power and increased torque.
