With zero emissions, lower noise and reduced maintenance, the 18V X2 (36V) LXT Cordless Lawn Mower is a welcome solution for efficient grass cutting.

The mower offers ease-of-use features including quick height adjustments, a 1.7 bushel capacity grass collector, and folding handles for compact storage. The Lawn Mower features Makita Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™).

Makita 18V batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created Star Protection Computer Controls™. Star Protection is communication technology that allows the Star Protection-equipped tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita 18V LXT and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
