Makita CXT 12V Line Trimmer UR100DZ – It’s a 12 Volt String Trimmer !

Makita’s 12V CXT power tool line is the fastest growing 12V line right now and it certainly shows with new tools constantly coming out like their newest outdoor power tool – the Makita CXT 12V Line Trimmer UR100DZ. This is their first 12V string trimmer!

This was spotted over in Australia thanks to Glenn. Great news for those of you in Australia while the rest of us here in the USA have to wait our turn. I do not know when or if we’ll get this here.

Being spotted in AU all the specs are in metric. What we know is the new 12V string trimmer appears to be very light weight coming in at 2.1 kg which translates to 4.62 lbs. I’m guessing this is the weight without battery but either way this tool will be extremely light. Light on weight but not so light on where it counts as it gets a respectable 260mm cutting swatch which translates to 10 inches, that’s not that far behind most of their 18V string trimmers actually so it’s pretty good in my opinion.

It uses 1.6mm line which is 0.062″ when translated which is thinner than traditional line but we’re talking about a 12V string trimmer here. Being a 12V tool I didn’t expect it to have dual line cutting and my guess is correct as it only uses one line to cut. Other features include a telescoping handle, the motor is mounted on the cutting head and a 10,000 RPM no load speed. I didn’t see the mention of variable speed so this will probably be the fixed RPM speed, in other words you’ll only get max speed at all times. Makita doesn’t talk about runtime but they say this is good for homeowners with small to medium yards.

Makita are really starting to take it to Milwaukee in the 12v line. They just keep dropping tools into the market every few weeks.
