New lawn mower offers efficient grass cutting without the hassles of gas.

Cut up to 7,300 sq. ft. of grass on a single charge with the XML03 when using two 18V LXT 5.0Ah batteries.

 April 19, 2019, La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc., manufacturer of high-quality professional tools, outdoor power equipment, and accessories, announces the launch of a new cordless lawn mower. The 18V X2 (36V) LXT® Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 18” Lawn Mower (XML03) offers increased cutting capacity, added durability, and longer run times than previous models.

LXT Cordless Lawn Mower Enhancements
Cut up to 7,300 square feet of grass on a single charge with the XML03 when using two 18V 5.0Ah batteries. The XML03 runs on two LXT batteries for 36V performance and run-time, eliminating the hassles of gas and providing an instant start. The exclusive Makita-designed BL™ Brushless Motor delivers 2,500 – 3,300 RPM for faster cutting.
The lawn mower features a durable steel deck and folding handles that make the lawn mower compact for easy storage and transportation. The grass catcher bag holds up to 16 gallons and a mulching plug offers versatility. With the mulching plug attachment in place and the grass catcher bag removed, cut grass will return to the lawn. A single lever gives the user control over cutting height with a quick adjustment of 10 cutting heights (13/16” – 2-5/16”). Reduce noise with the Quiet Mode setting, which provides constant speed control at 2,500 RPM and, thus, lower noise.
It’s part of an expanding range of Makita® Cordless Outdoor Power Equipment that includes blowers, string trimmers, chain saws, hedge trimmers, a versatile couple shaft system, and more. Makita® Cordless Outdoor Power Equipment gives users maximum performance. Without the hassles of gas, Makita® Cordless Outdoor Power Equipment provides instant starts, lower noise, reduced maintenance, and zero emissions.  
18V LXT System
The Makita® LXT Cordless System, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries, takes a user from power tools to outdoor power equipment to get the job done. Makita® 18V LXT Batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.   
Technology that Protects Battery and Lawn Mower
For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created Star Protection Computer Controls™. Star Protection is communication technology that allows the Star Protection-equipped tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita® 18V LXT and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol indicating Star Protection inside.
Another technical feature is Makita’s Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™). XPT is a series of integrated seals engineered to channel away dust and water for increased durability. Wherever the job takes you, Makita® products equipped with XPT are engineered for increased durability and longer tool life.
The mower is available in a kit that includes four 18V LXT Lithium-Ion 5.0Ah batteries, Rapid Optimum Charger, and mulching plug attachment or as a “tool only” model with only the mulching plug attachment (batteries and charger sold separately).
