Landscapers want more cordless alternatives to gas-powered outdoor power tools. Makita's cordless OPE lineup is expanding to meet demand, including the 18V X2 (36V) LXT Brushless Cordless String Trimmer Kit (model XRU15PT1). The 18V X2 (36V) LXT Cordless String Trimmer is a welcome solution for landscapers, with zero emissions, lower noise, and significantly less maintenance than gas-powered string trimmers. It's powered by two fast-charging 18V LXT Batteries for maximum power and run time while remaining on the 18V battery platform. When increased power and speed are required, electronic controls efficiently use battery energy to match the changing demands of the application. Furthermore, for added convenience, the string trimmer rotates in the same counter-clockwise direction as professional-grade trimmers and uses industry-standard spindles (M10x1.25 LH). The trimmer has a longer run time, more power and speed, and a longer tool life thanks to the efficient Makita BL brushless motor. Makita's efficient BL Brushless motor is electronically controlled, allowing for up to 50% more run time per battery charge than comparable non-brushless tools. The Makita-built Outer Rotor Brushless Motor with direct drive on the XRU15PT provides high power and increased torque. Makita Extreme Protection Technology is built into the String Trimmer (XPT). An XPT is a protective seal inside the tool that is designed to improve performance in harsh environments by channeling water and dust away from key internal components. It is a component of Makita's 18V LXT 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 class, allowing them to spend more time working and less time charging. Makita developed Star Protection Computer Controls to improve tool performance and battery life. Star Protection is a communication technology that enables the Star Protection-equipped tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor operating conditions to protect against overloading, overcharging, and overheating. The tool can also be powered by Makita 18V LXT and compact Lithium-Ion batteries for added versatility, with the star symbol on the battery indicating star protection inside.
