Makita XHU08Z 18V LXT Lithium‑Ion Brushless Cordless Hedge Trimmer
The Makita 18V LXT® Brushless Cordless 30” Hedge Trimmer (model XHU08Z, tool only) is part of Makita’s wide range of cordless outdoor power equipment. The XHU08Z Hedge Trimmer has a 30″ blade for increased cutting capacity and a 5-position rotating handle for increased comfort when trimming vertically or at an angle. A Makita-built brushless motor delivers 4,400 SPM for faster cutting speed when set on the high speed option.
The cordless XHU08Z has zero emissions and reduced maintenance: there’s no engine oil to change, no spark plug to replace, and no air filter or muffler to clean. And there’s no need to drain the fuel for storage. Simply pickup your XHU08Z, load an 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion battery (sold separately), and the trimmer is ready to use.
The XHU08Z 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.
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.
