Another good Makita product!
I was somewhat concerned with the single string design of the head, thinking that the dual string heads would do a better job, the single is just fine of our use - general yard trimming. Battery life is significantly better than the previous other brand cordless trimmer we had, but you do need to get closer to the work than with more powerful trimmers. Overall, it does exactly what we hoped, work as designed and last long enough to trim the average 0.25 Acre suburban yard!

Great for small yards
I was in need of a string trimmer, borrowing the neighbors was getting old. I did however learn that I didn't want a corded one. I was looking into a 2 stroke one, after talking it over with the wife, she expressed the concern about being able to start one, and that a electric one might be better for her to use when I go on deployments. I already had a Makita cordless drill/batteries and decided that would be the best way to go. As it turns out I made the right decision, the head is easy to fill with line, and install. The trimmer is very light weight. For the size of my small backyard, this fits the bill perfectly.

wish I would have bought this years ago
after watching my husband mess around attempting to fix our missed-gas Toro (as my yard continued to look shabbier and shabbier) I bought this in secret since he already had the Makita charger. It is so easy to use, light, and effective even he could not argue with my choice. We donated the Toro even after he fixed it.

Very nice
After dealing with the gas trimmers that were a pain, I tried a recommended Black & Decker 20 volt it worked good but battery life was poor, my dad has the same so he purchased an extra battery but the battery life of 2-battery's is still not good enough. I figured with all the 18 volt Makita battery's I have I can get the trimming done. First time using it I had a bigger than normal trim to do. To my amazement it completed the jod & the battery was still strong I love this trimmer low cost works like a champ.

What model battery(s) is needed for this tool. I can't find that information on the website. It should be plainly stated. I know there are different models of 18V Lithium ion batteries.
Richard the Handyman on May 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This tool can use battery models BL1815 and BL1830
Where can I get battery, one is not included. Went to Home Depot and battery and charger was $99
Tony on Apr 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Can be ordered through CPO best to purchase a multi tool combo like Drill, Saw & battery / charger. Great tools & value in the LXT line up I have many & like them all. The battery's work in all the LXT tools. If you want to save more look for sales, specials or recon deals. I gave away all my corded tools because of how happy I am with LXT.

My trimmer bottom plate has broken. This also takes the cutter for the string away. Can I buy the bottom plate for the trimmer?
Thanks.

BEST ANSWER: Your question will be best answered by the manufacturer, who can provide you with the part replacement information. The number to reach the technician is 1-800-462-5482.
Is it available in brushless motor?
A shopper on Dec 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Makita has three brushless motor trimmers available.

1. Model XRU09P2 - will include two batteries and the charger.

2. Model XRU11M1 - will include one battery and charger.

3. Model XRU08Z - will be the Bare Tool item only, no battery or charger.
Does anybody know if a "prewound" spool exists for this? I know the string diameter is 0.065. Winding loose string is a pain!

Thx
