Makita Doubles Up On Batteries For Outdoor Tools With 36 Volts Of Yard-Clearing Power

Edit:ShenZhen Dingkangda Technoloy Co., Ltd      Date:Aug 04, 2016

Makita's approach to powering its outdoor tools is by utilizing two of its 18V X2 LXT lithium-ion batteries for 36 volts of power. There's no need to leave their 18V platform just because you're moving to outdoor tools.


Most power tool manufacturers that produce cordless outdoor power equipment have opted to place those tools on a high voltage battery platform since blowers and string trimmers draw a lot of power. That means you need to have another charger and another set of batteries to go along with the 18V batteries that power your cordless drills, circular saw, and impact driver. 


Makita's solution lets homeowners and DIYers use their existing 18V LXT batteries to power their outdoor tools. Less batteries to charge equals less hassle.

Makita builds pro tools and expect their outdoor power equipment to perform at a commercial level. Their 18V X2 (36V) String Trimmer model XRU07Z and 18V X2 (36V) Blower model XBU02Z both combine an efficient brushless motor with the extended run time of two 18V (36V) batteries

The new Makita string trimmer will run up to 60 minutes on a single charge of two Makita 18V LXT Lithium-Ion 5.0Ah batteries. It can also run with two 18V 2.0Ah, 3.0Ah, or 4.0Ah batteries. It features a full 13-3/4-inch diameter of cutting swath. For more versatility, the trimmer has two speed options (5,000 and 6,500 RPM), weighs 9.9 pounds with batteries, and has a 3-stage LED battery fuel indicator.


The Makita blower is a powerhouse that delivers up to 120 MPH air velocity and 473 CFM air volume. It has a variable speed control trigger and offers 29 minutes of run time at 15,800 RPM using two 18V 5.0Ah batteries (sold separately). Like the string trimmer, it can also run on two 18V 2.0Ah, 3.0Ah, or 4.0Ah batteries. The lock-on button helps with finger fatigue and a telescoping nozzle can direct air over a broad or targeted area.


If you've already invested in the broad Makita 18V LXT battery platform—which powers more than 100 tools—then these two tools are a no-brainer.
