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 LXT® 13" Lawn Mower Kit (XML12SM1). With zero emissions, lower noise and none of the maintenance associated with gas power equipment, the 13" Lawn Mower is a welcome solution for efficient grass cutting. It’s powered by one 18V LXT® battery, the same fast-charging battery that powers the full range of products in the expanding LXT® System.
The XML12 has an ergonomic composite deck that weighs less for reduced required push force and easier transport. It features a 13" cutting width for small spaces and a compact 14" deck ideal for detailed landscaping. The grass catcher bag holds up to 0.85 bushels of grass. The Makita-built brushless motor delivers 4,300 RPM for faster cutting and a 2-in-1 design that allows for mulching or bagging.
The XML12 offers convenience features including a single lever that quickly adjusts cutting height from 13/16” to 3”, a rotary blade with a full 13” cutting width, and a grass level indicator that floats when the bag is empty and collapses when the bag is full. It also features a folding handle for easy storage and a rubberized grip for added user comfort.
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.
It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion system, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries. Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.
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 on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.

Makita cordless tools are engineered for industrial applications, and for added protection during the most demanding jobs Makita created STAR Protection Computer Controls™. STAR is communications technology that monitors conditions during use, allowing the tool and battery to exchange data to protect against overloading, overdischarging and overheating. If STAR detects conditions that threaten to overload, overdischarge or overheat the tool or battery, the tool will automatically stop. At that time the user can either restart the tool, change or charge the battery, and put the tool back to work. When you slide a Makita 18V LXT® battery with the STAR symbol onto a Makita tool that has either the STAR symbol or a yellow terminal, you are benefitting from STAR Protection Computer Controls™.
When the job takes your Makita tool into harsh conditions, Makita Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™) provides added protection. XPT™ is a series of integrated seals engineered to channel away dust and water for increased durability. Wherever the job takes you, Makita tools equipped with XPT™ are engineered for increased durability and longer tool life.
