I have really no idea but considering a lot of trimmers are 40-50-60 volts is this thing under powered at 18 volts? My dad loves the 56 volt ego I bought him a couple years ago.

I got this a while back at home depot. String trimmer is perfectly powerful for residential use cleaning up the edges left after mowing. I wouldn't try it for trimming along a ditch or knocking down large patches of grass. Really convenient to grab a battery and go though if you already have Makita. This deal is fantastic. The blower is great too for cleaning up after yards work and not really less powerful than the 36v version. But I wouldn't blow leaves in the fall with it.

I have the trimmer. I've been using it to basically mow all my yards. I refuse to buy a mower and I don't water so I wait till the weeds get to 20" and then get to whacking. A 5amp battery will do about 30x30 and then still have some power left. Very reliable very sturdy and very high quality. I do not regret t having gone Makita when I started buying power tools. I guarantee anyone that my yard is serious stuff, 100% weeds and nasty ones At that. I've had this trimmer for three years.

also: STRONGLY recommend husquavna 1/8 string. expensive but lasts forever so actually cheaper.

Bought this combo 6 weeks ago for around $300, time fit a price adjustment in my purchase.. Use the blower most and love it. Eats batteries though.

Absolutely not, this is not under-powered at all. In fact I am blown away with it. I have at least 14 Makita LXT tools and they are some of the best engineered tools that are at no disadvantage to these new 50, 60 V line of marketing hype tools.

The higher voltage is mostly a marketing scam for the uninformed who just see "bigger is better:

Higher voltage does not equal more power. All else being equal then yes it would however the motor has to become higher resistance to accommodate the higher voltage meaning the amount of power output is going to remain the same.

This was a good find. It beats the $50 off 2 or $100 off 3 special at Home Depot.

Can someone tell me how these compare to the DeWalt 18v tools? I tried a few string trimmers in the store at HD, and I liked how the Makita one felt in my hands. Was really light too.
