Makita XGT 40V 15″ String Trimmer Kit

Makita XGT® Outdoor Power Equipment delivers gas-like performance demanded by professional landscapers. The 40V max XGT® Brushless 15” String Trimmer (GRU01M1) delivers the power needed to get the job done. With zero emissions, lower noise and maximum versatility, the power head provides a cordless solution for heavy trimming applications.

A variable speed trigger controls cutting speed with three speed options (3,500, 5,300, 6,500 RPM), allowing users to match power and speed to the changing demands of the application. Automatic Torque Drive Technology mode automatically shifts speed to extend run time or add power as needed. A reverse rotation function allows the operator to quickly clear the trimmer head of entangled grass and weeds, and the Rapid Load Bump and Feed Trimmer Head loads a new line in seconds with 3 easy steps. An adjustable loop handle provides comfort.

XGT is a system of equipment, tools, batteries and chargers utilizing 40v max lithium-ion batteries. XGT is engineered to deliver high power to take on high-demand applications, allowing users to completely transition to a cordless job site. XGT is equipped with advanced brushless motor engineering, intelligent digital communication, and superior durability features to outpower, outsmart and outlast the rest.
