The 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless Grass Shear (model XMU02Z, tool only) is a compact and cordless solution for grass trimming and cutting.
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 XMU02Z delivers 1,250 strokes per minute (SPM) and up to 2 hours of run time on a single charge of the 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion 3.0Ah battery (sold separately). It has adjustment features so the height can be matched to the application. Additional comfort and ease-of-use features include a rubberized soft grip handle, "tool-less" blade changing, and a compact size at only 3.6 lbs. (with battery, sold separately).
