I just received my Makita X2 trimmer today (not the Couple Shaft version) used it for about an hour and I absolutely love it, or at least I did until I read your post. I had no idea about the Couple Shaft system! I easily would have paid more for that instead. But I've already sunk a few hundred on this bundle (4 batteries) and since I've used it I doubt I can return it now. Why is the grass always greener on the other side? I wish I waited just a couple more days before pulling the trigger, then I would've been more informed.
I never do this but here you go. Please watch Nadal's response a few days ago to the question...

LOL, thanks. I will continue to enjoy my current trimmer. Besides, this version may have less issues since it's just one solid piece.

Not sure about the Makita line, but Milwaukee also changed to a "Qik-Lock" system with swappable attachments. The problem? Each attachment piece (weed trimmer, hedge trimmer, edger) is atleast the price of the previous entire tool. And tool only (or attachment only in this case) deals are really rare.

Good deal on yard tools if you are already into the Makita eco-system.

Thanks for sharing!
I don't think you need to have been "in" or need to have a plan to be "in" the Makita eco-system for this to be a great deal. I guess I'm "in" the Milwaukee system, but this is a much better deal than anything I can get from Milwaukee recently. I don't think we need to lock ourselves in to 1 brand, unless you really don't want to manage two different chargers.

Great! I'm completly in the Makita ecosystem. Already have a couple batteries and a charger, but another can't hurt.

Been waiting to pull the trigger on a battery powered trimmer. Tired of the 2-cycle hassle.

This is a good deal without the battery and it's great with it! I bought a house with hedges (never had them before) and this tool does a great job and battery lasts forever.

While I normally prefer Amazon, keep in mind that eBay has the broadly targeted 13% eBay Bucks offer (for purchases via the app - 8% for website purchases) active at the moment if you're eligible for that. Comes out to $23.27 back in eBay Bucks.

I wish this were about any other tool than a Hedge Trimmer. How often do you have to trim hedges?
I generally trim the shrubs and hedges 3-6 times each year and when I do it saves a bunch of time to not have to drag out a 50' extension cord. If I see a few branches start to get unruly it takes less than 10 mins to grab a cordless trimmer and zip right trough them. And when it's time to do the whole thing mine will last the whole job and then some.

I can't speak to the longevity of this 4.0 battery on this model as I have an EGO cordless hedge trimmer, but my string trimmer and blower are X2 Makita models and I enjoy using both lines of tools.

Personally I don't care for interchangeable head systems. They have more parts, which means more stuff that can go wrong, and the tools are a little bigger and heavier than dedicated tools. Also, you can't use more than one tool at the same time unless you invest in a second shaft. Plus, the different attachments are ridiculously expensive (cost as much as a whole tool, but you are only getting one half of it).

Bottom line, these systems are great if space is at a premium (like in the back of a landscaping company's truck). But for the average home owner, especially if a spouse or kid is helping with the yard work, you are probably better off buying dedicated tools. Just my $.02

You and TimJ7203 make fine points. However, I still wonder how much of a difference the higher speed would make, 9700rpm vs 6500rpm. It would shorten the runtime per charge.
So far I'm happy with the performance of my 6500rpm trimmer.

Looks like it's $160 on ebay now... Think I can contact the seller and get that $20 back?
