With zero emissions, lower noise, and considerably less maintenance, the 18V LXT® Brushless Cordless String Trimmer, Tool Only (XRU12Z) is a welcome solution for landscapers. The string trimmer is ideal for precision trimming and edging. It features an efficient Makita® BL™ Brushless Motor for longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life. The efficient brushless motor delivers up to 6,000 RPM for faster cutting. The XRU12Z is equipped with Automatic Torque Drive Technology, which automatically shifts to speeds ranging from 4,000 to 6,000 RPM depending on the density of the terrain. There are three speed settings (4,000/5,000/6,000 RPM), allowing users to match the speed to the application. The easy-loading bump-and-feed trimmer head is compatible with .080” or .095” line and offers reverse rotation to quickly clear the head of entangled grass and weeds. The XRU12Z features Makita’s 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 LXT System, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries. Makita® 18V LXT® 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® Lithium-Ion Batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
