Makita U.S.A., Inc., is expanding its cordless outdoor power equipment offering with the launch of the  the new 18V LXT Brushless Cordless 20” Articulating Pole Hedge Trimmer (XNU01) and 18V LXT Brushless Cordless 24” Pole Hedge Trimmer (XNU02). These hedge trimmers are a welcome solution for professional hedge trimming because there are zero emissions, lower noise, reduced maintenance, and no pull starts. 

“The addition of the XNU01 and XNU02 shafted hedge trimmers allows Makita to offer a complete gas-replacement portfolio to convert a commercial landscaper’s handheld equipment to cordless,” asserts Romique Talton, Senior Product Manager – Outdoor Power Equipment and Accessories.

20” Articulating Pole Hedge Trimmer (XNU01)

The XNU01 is ideal for efficient trimming of overhead and low-lying hedges. The 20” dual-action double-sided shear blade provides optimal performance. An articulating blade provides six angle settings for 115-degrees of working range.

The BL Brushless Motor delivers up to 4,400 SPM for faster cutting. It has three speed options (2,000/3,600/4,400). Users can enjoy 80 minutes of run time with a fully charged 18V LXT 5.0Ah Battery.

Makita’s 18V LXT Brushless Cordless 20” Articulating Pole Hedge Trimmer is available as a bare tool (XNU01Z) and kit (XNU01T).

24” Pole Hedge Trimmer (XNU02)

Also ideal for efficient trimming of overhead and low-lying hedges, the 18V LXT Brushless Cordless 24” Pole Hedge Trimmer offers 75 minutes of run time using a fully charged 18V LXT 5.0Ah Battery. The XNU02 weighs less than gas models and features a 24” dual-action double-sided shear blade. It has three speed options (2,000/3,600/4,400) and a BL™ Brushless Motor that delivers up to 4,400 SPM for faster cutting.

Both trimmers feature a commercial-duty gear case engineered for improved durability in daily professional use, as well as the following technologies. 

Star Protection Computer Controls

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 Lithium-Ion Batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
