Product Overview

Landscapers are demanding more cordless alternatives to corded and gas-powered outdoor power equipment. Makita is meeting demand with an expanding line-up of cordless OPE, including the 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Brushless String Trimmer (model XRU08Z, tool only). With zero emissions, lower noise, and considerably less maintenance, the 18V X2 cordless string trimmer is a welcome solution for landscapers. It’s compatible with Makita’s fast-charging 18V LXT® batteries, and features an efficient Makita BL™ brushless motor for longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life.

The XRU08Z has an adjustable speed dial (5,000/6,000 RPM) and delivers up to 37 minutes of continuous run time under load on the high setting (44 minutes on low). The telescoping curved shaft easily adjusts from 60-1/2" to 64-1/2" in length, with a compact cutting head for precise trimming and edging.
