Details
The Makita 18V LXT Brushless Cordless 30 in. Hedge Trimmer (model XHU08Z, tool only) is part of Makita's wide range of cordless outdoor power equipment. The XHU08Z Hedge Trimmer has a 30 in. blade for increased cutting capacity and a 5-position rotating handle for increased comfort when trimming vertically or at an angle. A Makita-built brushless motor delivers 4,400 SPM for faster cutting speed when set on the high speed option. The cordless XHU08Z has zero emissions and reduced maintenance: there's no engine oil to change, no spark plug to replace, and no air filter or muffler to clean. And there's no need to drain the fuel for storage. Simply pickup your XHU08Z, load an 18V LXT Lithium-Ion battery (sold separately), and the trimmer is ready to use.
Features:
  • 5-position rotating rear handle for increased comfort during vertical and angle trimming
  • 3-speed options (Low: 2,000 SPM, Medium: 3,600 SPM, High: 4,400 SPM) allowing the operator to match speed to application
  • Variable speed trigger for increased operator control
  • Anti-vibration design aids in precision cutting

Awesome piece of equipment! Made short work of a dreaded job.Remarkably quiet, cuts great and easier to keep hedges flat. I used a 4AH battery and never ran out of power. It is a big piece of equipment and does take some effort to use for an extended period of time but that time is cut down significantly. No cords or gas so set up and take down are a breeze. Very happy at this point.

Worth the investment
I made the conversion from 2 cycle to battery powered equipment this year and have been most pleased with the 30" Makita trimmer. Light weight, only used one battery and had plenty of power for normal shrub trimming. I find the five position handle particularly useful as it allows comfortable positioning of the control hand regardless of the trimmer orientation

What's the run time on this thing?
A shopper on Jun 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I'm sure it depends on your choice of cutting speed. I generally found the middle speed setting to work for everything I trimmed. I didn't actually time my work, but it seemed like I got well over an hour using a 5AH battery. Very happy with this tool and also happy I didn't go for the 36 volt version.
