Makita XML02Z 18V X2 (36V) LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 17 Lawn Mower, Tool Only

There is increasing demand for more alternatives to gas-powered outdoor power equipment. Makita is meeting demand with an expanding line of cordless OPE that includes the 18V X2 LXT Lithium-Ion (36V) 17" Lawn Mower. With zero emissions, lower noise and none of the maintenance associated with gas power equipment, the 18V X2 (36V) Cordless Lawn Mower is a welcome solution for efficient grass cutting. It's powered by two 18V LXT batteries (batteries and charger sold separately) for maximum power and run time, but without leaving the 18V battery platform. The Makita-built motor delivers 3,600 RPM, and the Mower offers ease-of-use features including quick height adjustments, a 13 gallon capacity grass collector, and a full 17" cutting width. Using two 18V LXT 5.0Ah batteries, the Lawn Mower delivers up to 30 minutes of run time. The Lawn Mower features Makita Extreme Protection Technology (XPT). XPT is a protective seal inside the tool, and is engineered for improved operation in harsh conditions by channeling water and dust from key internal components.

Used it to mow around camper. It assembled easily and did an excellent job. The grass catcher fills quickly. I need to prop chute open so I can mow without it. I don't care about clippings. I was impressed. I only used it once but I have had good luck with Makita products.

Love this thing. I was using a Brill push mover for a small 1/4 acre lot lawn for many years. Finally got fed up with it catching on twigs or skidding over the grass if it was the least bit wet. For a long time this was only available in Europe, and I toyed with the idea of buying from Amazon.co.uk, but at last they brought it here. Fully adjustable, metal cutting blade, takes 2 high-capacity LXT Makita 5Ah cells (or go the cheaper route and get Sun Power 3rd-party cells - maybe not as high quality as the original BL-1850B-2 Makitas, but they are half the price and are still solid cells.) Run time on the 2 Sun Powers for me is about 40 minutes, which is plenty of time for my two lawns. I can also bag & compost the grass, it's relatively quiet (still sounds like a mower though), no fumes, no gas leaks. Light enough to hang on the garage wall. Stops instantly when you let go of the safety bar. The housing and wheels are plastic - seems a little sketchy - but everything is built as solidly as any other Makita tool, so I'm not worried about durability. For small lawns, this is perfect. Plus, I can swap the cells into any of my other LXT tools. May have to get a 2-cell charger now...

The Mower showed up and after about 30 minutes of reading the instructions and assembling the mower I was out mowing my little lawn in the back yard! Simple to use, easy to assemble, plenty of power for a normal urban lawn. I used my batteries from my drill & impact driver, mowed the lawn and put the batteries back in the other tools with plenty of pwer left! The batteries I used are 4amp ones and worked well.

I had a B&D cordless mower for about 10 years but it was hard to get the batteries in and out. I have lots of Makita cordless tools including pretty much the entire outdoor set (blower, trimmer, edger, etc.) so the mower was the last piece. I got it since I love the others so much and the mower is equally as good. Love the flexibility and its very sturdy. Not cheaply made.

With two 5 amp hour batteries this thing does great. We have the Makita trimmer blower and now lawn mower. Two of these batteries can get through one mowing session front and back lawn, complete trimmer use front and back, and blower front and back and still have two bars to spare.

Love how clean and smooth this machine runs! No gas smell, no risk of accidentally running over the cord of an electric lawn mower and runs quieter than other mowers. Great product!

I'm very impressed with this mower. I bought it because I've never regretted a Makita tool purchase and I now include this one. If like me you're not at all impressed with the cordless mower brands being pushed on us at the big box stores, I highly recommend taking a serious look at this Makita. Hopefully Amazon will soon offer the Makita mower package deal (includes 2x5ah batteries, dual charger and free grinder) available elsewhere for $449.

I never write reviews so I thought I would write one because this tool is awesome. I never would dream that it would cut my front and back lawn with not only one battery charge but I was able to do the weed whacking and blowing afterwards. 25 amp batteries do my front and back lawn perfectly and they're still more than half of charge left when I'm done. No gas no Mess really fast and lightweight. I recommend if you are a Makita user.

Runs a long time on one charge. Good unit just don't hit any rocks! Blade is light duty.

Pretty light weight and compact for storage. 5A batteries were enough for front yard, so had to re-charge to finish back yard.
