New From Makita: Connector Series String Trimmer

The Connector Series is a line of power equipment that utilizes an external battery connection, moving batteries from the unit to a battery backpack (sold separately). A cable connects the unit to the battery backpack. This shift in battery weight from the unit to the backpack provides improved balance and longer run time. Paired with the LXT and LXT X2 portable backpack power supply (PDC01, sold separately), a user will gain twice the run time for any LXT X2 product. 

The first item in the series is the 36V brushless string trimmer, CRU03Z. With a 17 in. cutting swath, the CRU03Z provides increased productivity. Its efficient Makita BL brushless motor delivers power equivalent to a 30cc gas string trimmer, longer run time, and more power and speed. The steel drive shaft provides less vibration and longer equipment life, with three speed options (4,000/4,600/6,000 RPM). The automatic torque drive technology mode automatically shifts speeds to extend run time or add power. The reverse rotation function allows the user to quickly clear trimmer head of entangled grass and weeds.

The trimmer features Makita’s extreme protection technology (XPT)—a protective seal inside the tool and is engineered for improved operation in harsh conditions by channeling water and dust from key internal components. It also is IPX4 weather-resistant construction for durability and long life.
