The Makita XHU02Z 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Hedge Trimmer combines power, capacity and less vibration with the convenience of cordless operation.

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.

The XHU02Z has a Makita-built motor that delivers 1,350 SPM and a 22 in. blade for increased cutting capacity. The XHU02Z will run up to 75 minutes on a single charge using the 18V LXT 3.0Ah Lithium-Ion battery for increased convenience and versatility. Cordless technology also means less noise, and at only 87 dB(A) the XHU02Z is 25% quieter than other cordless hedge trimmers.

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.

Features:

  • Rubberized soft grip provides increased comfort on the job
  • Quick blade changes; no need to disassemble the housing
  • Electric brake for increased productivity
  • 3-year warranty on tool
  • Battery and charger sold separately
  • Equipped with Star Protection Computer Controls to protect against overloading, over-discharging and over-heating
  • Rapid Optimum Charger communicates with the battery's built-in chip throughout the charging process to optimize battery life by actively controlling current, voltage and temperature (battery and charger sold separately)
  • Rapid Optimum Charger has a built-in fan to cool the battery for faster, more efficient charging (battery and charger sold separately)
  • Makita technology delivers category-leading charge time so the battery spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger (battery and charger sold separately)
  • Compatible with Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries with a Star symbol (battery sold separately)
  • Only use genuine Makita batteries and chargers

Great for light trimmimg XHU027
By dave scelza from Oregon on October 1, 2015
I recently sold an Echo gas powered trimmer that I had for 2 years. The Echo was just overkill, as I only used it about once a month, so I sold it for this lighter unit. And am not disappointed. I already owned a Makita drill set and liked the performance from its 18 volt motor and batteries. It does a good job on most of my shrubby (count at 75). If I come across branches that are larger than 3/16", I use a manual loper, then continue on with the Makita. No problem.
Pros:
It's lightweight and don't have to maintain a gas powered engine.
Cons:
Would have given it 5 stars but don't like the thumb button to push, before you can pull the trigger.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
