Product Overview

Details

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 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless String Trimmer (model XRU11M1). With zero emissions, lower noise, and considerably less maintenance, the 18V X2 cordless string trimmer is a welcome solution for landscapers. It features an efficient Makita BL brushless motor for longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life. The kit includes an efficient Rapid Optimum Charger and an 18V LXT 4.0Ah battery which reaches a full charge in only 40 minutes – the fastest charge-time in the category – for less downtime and increased productivity. The efficient brushless motor delivers up to 6,000 RPM for faster cutting. The XRU11Z is equipped with Automatic Torque Drive Technology, which automatically shifts from 4,000-6,000 RPM depending on the density of the application. There are three speed options (4,000/5,000/6,000 RPM), allowing users to match the speed to the application. On the high setting, users will get up to 30 minutes under load while using an 18V LXT 4.0Ah battery. Additional features include a full 11-3/4 in. cutting swath, an easy-loading bump-and-feed trimmer head, and reverse rotation that allows users to quickly clear the head of entangled grass and weeds. The XRU11Z accepts industry standard M8x1.25 LH spindles. The XRU11M1 features Makita Extreme Protection Technology (XPT). XPT is a protective seal inside the tool, and is 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 system, the world’s largest cordless tool system 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.

Cemetery
Weed eater took a little over 3 batteries to do cemetery. About an hour and 15 minutes to do. Never thought it would last that long, respect.

A very nice lightweight Trimmer, lasts plenty long, but could use a little higher rpm for thicker weeds.
Well, the title says it all. This is a great lightweight trimmer! The battery lasts pretty long and I love the fold down stopper to save line when doing near trees and hard surfaces. A little more strength for thicker weeds would be nice, I'm guessing a 36v would be better suited for that, Overall, a great weed eater for the money, and it works well for a homeowner.

Great Deal on a Great Trimmer
I picked this up about two weeks ago on sale and I couldn't be happier. My gas trimmer was getting harder and harder to start so I decided I would give this a try. Seriously, I wish I had bought years ago, this is so much easier and lighter to use. I love that I don't need to find a gas can, just grab a battery and go. Cannot wait to add more Makita tools!

Very nice trimmer
I am quite happy with the trimmer. I purchased this as a package with the free hedge trimmer. That was my motivation for purchase. It made the price for 2 tools, battery and charger a good deal. I have many other Makita tools and batteries, So this is an addition to me. But since it comes as a kit you don't have to own other tools. I really appreciate just being able to pull the trigger to start and stop the tool. No vibration unlike gas power. And so quite. It is professional design with the long straight shaft . Keeping the yard clippings a bit further from your legs. I like having speed control right at your finger tips. I find that useful. Plenty of power to cut grass and normal weed growth. This trimmer has exceeded my expectations . And it is on the 18 volt platform.

Great household weed trimmer
I could have gotten the 36v one but for just doing my own yard the 18v one is more than capable. I really like it
