Landscapers and contractors are demanding more cordless alternatives to corded and gas-powered outdoor power equipment. Makita is meeting demand with an expanding line of cordless OPE, including the Makita 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Hedge Trimmer (model XHU02Z, tool only, batteries and charger sold separately). With zero emissions, lower noise, and considerably less maintenance, the XHU02Z is a welcome solution for trimming applications.

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 120 minutes on the low setting on a single charge using an 18V LXT 4.0Ah battery (sold separately). Cordless technology also means lower noise, and at only 87 dB(A) the XHU02Z is 25% quieter than other cordless hedge trimmers.

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.


  • 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
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.
ProsIt's lightweight and don't have to maintain a gas powered engine.
ConsWould have given it 5 stars but don't like the thumb button to push, before you can pull the trigger.
