What can I say...it's a Makita!!
Comment:Just another wonderful addition to the world of 18 volt LXT tools. No vibration, cuts are clean and fast, does not bog down with thicker branches, and extremely light. I have around 100 feet of hedge and other ornamental topiaries and It doesn't even need a battery swap. Very pleased with this hedge trimmer. Permanently replaced a ryobi hedge trimmer attachment I have. Bought the Makita blower 18vx2 as well. Extremely happy with that also. Way to go Makita!

Just Pure Makita Quality
Comment:I am a big fan of Makita Tools and this is just one of their great innovations. I operate a Handyman Business so my quality of work depends on solid good tools. Makita with all their line up of different tools makes my world of work much easier. The 18 Volt Hedge Trimmer is such a welcome addition to my personal Makita line up. The trimmer is light, no cord to fuss with and uses the same batteries as my other tools. Great job Makita for putting this tool in your already awesome line up of tools!
