Makita 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless String Trimmer Kit, with one battery (4.0Ah)
Landscapers are seeking more cordless alternatives to corded and gas-powered outdoor power equipment, and Makita is meeting demand with an expanding line of cordless OPE. The 18V LXT® Brushless String Trimmer (model XRU04M1) is a cordless trimming solution with zero emissions, lower noise and considerably less maintenance, as well as category-leading battery charge time and unmatched breadth-of-line. The XRU04M1 is a kit and includes one fast-charging 18V LXT Lithium-Ion 4.0Ah batteries and an efficient Rapid Optimum Charger. The XRU04M1 is powered by an efficient Makita BL™ brushless motor, which is engineered for up to 50% longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life 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. It also features Makita Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™), a protective seal inside the tool 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 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries. 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. 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.
