The Makita 18V X2 LXT® Hedge Trimmer (model XHU04Z, tool only) is powered by two 18V LXT® batteries (36V), so you get 36V power and run time for corded and gas-powered demands, without leaving the 18V LXT® platform. Batteries and charger are sold separately.
It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion series, the world’s largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. 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.
The XHU04Z Hedge Trimmer has a 25-1/2" blade and the Makita-built motor delivers 1,800 SPM for increased cutting speed, but with less noise (only 86.5 dB(A). The cordless XHU04Z 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 XHU04Z, load two 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion batteries, and the trimmer is ready to use.
Additional features include a two-handed operation switch is engineered to activate the motor only when the switch and top handle are engaged, an electric brake for maximum productivity, and more.
