    This hedge trimmer is very very quiet. The blades are sharp and sturdy. Would highly recommend.

    Used this on a very high hedge growing from my neighbours property. It’s light enough to hold high for long periods and I used with a 3 ah battery with no issues. Really good product as you would expect from Makita.

    Best hedge trimmer to date, bought a gtech didn’t last long at all. the Makita is well made and very quiet. cuts my 6 foot privet hedge like a hot knife through butter. Brilliant!

    Light weight and well balanced, good blade length and wide teeth, saves dragging cable down the garden, very quiet compared to my old cable ones, bare tool but I have batteries from drills and saws. One 5ah battery did both sides of picture, safety switch can be a little tricky untill you get use to it.

    Well balanced

    I decided to get another hedge trimmer after our electric one gave up. I already had a good Makita drill with 2 batteries and after finding the batteries were compatible with the Makita DUH523Z cordless lithium hedge trimmer bought the bare unit.
    It is lightweight and cuts hedges without a problem and can get around an hour of battery life without recharging.
    I would recommend the hedge trimmer highly.

    Very well built and as powerful as mains lead machine, I used trimmer with a 5amp battery and after 3 hours of use I had only used a quarter of battery charge, The only slightly alkward bit is the safety features, to operate there is a trigger to pull, whilst holding in the second hand holding frame, but the alkward bit is also keeping a third button held in whilst in use, I used electrical tape stuck over and wrapped around to just keep button held in.

    Nice little trimmer. Light and easy to use and makes a great addition to my Makita tools

    We are very pleased with this hedge trimmer. For obvious reasons the fact that it runs on a battery it is so much more convenient to use in areas where power is not available for an electric trimmer. We have used it to trim hedges, areas with over hanging tree branches, nettles and nuisance weeds. Our only negative comment would be the fact that it has to be operated with both hands as the start up requires two fingers to press the buttons on one side and the other hand to hold the cut out handle. This operation is for obvious safety which is paramount.

    Professional gardeners will tell you that 18V isn’t enough power for proper hedge cutting, but we have found that this tool is more than powerful enough to chop through hedge and shrub growth up to about 1cm, which is all you really need for maintenance trimming. It is light, quiet, very sharp and so easy to use, and very good value if you already have the batteries and charger from something else.

    Typical Makita. Solid and very well made. Uses very little power and runs for ages, even on my smaller 3Ah battery. The battery puts the weight up a little compared to a similar sized 240v mains trimmer but that is more than offset by not having a trailing lead to get in the way. Much safer, especially when you’re up on steps or a ladder. Much quieter than either of our old mains trimmers (which have now gone to the tip). Good to see that the blade is a user-replaceable part. I would highly recommend.

    Great bit of kit. Perfect for cutting the trails where i ride my bike. Goes through ferns and stingys no problem. 5 amp 18v bat will last for so long. Ive used it for 2 hrs and it only used 1 quarter of the battery.

    I associate makita with building tools and wasn’t sure about them and gardening kit. But as I already have a full suite of pro building tools of theirs including battery and charger for this I gave it a go. I’ve had countless cordless trimmers from “proper” garden suppliers and this is hands down by far the best. Really pleased. The quality is exceptional.

    I have used a petrol cheeseburger for a number of years and I found it was getting to heavy for me,saw this on Amazon and decided to take a chance bought it and I’m delighted with it,just wished I had done it sooner.

  21. RebekahSterling says:

    Bought (a) because its a Makita and (b) because it uses the same Makita batteries so use with my other tools. Made easy work or the privet and Holly hedge and used less than a quarter of the battery power to do so.
    It’s a Makita and it works.

    Have gone all out on the makita range. Added these hedge trimmers. They are good at what they do. Quiet and light weight. No chance of accidentally starting them given the two handed operatio

    Seems slow cutting action but cuts better than my old electric one

    I bought this cutter in preference to a petrol driven cutter than I had been using previously, it’s very light and easy to use and seems to cut well, I have a large hedge which it cut without needing a battery re-charge and battery life is impressive. I’m so pleased with this and am a definite convert to using cordless as an alternative.

    This machine is a lot better than I was expecting, it’s lightweight and easy to handle and a complete bonus that it works with all my cordless batteries (esp as they aren’t Inc with this machine) highly recommend if you have other Makita tools.

    Only down side was having to clear up all the mess I made in seconds of usage

    We love how light it is. No cords to cut through. Great safety features. Definitely recommend it.

    Only issue I found was the slow action of the cutting blades but it wasn’t detrimental.

    Have not used it yet. Appears to be a quality piece of kit. I managed to cut through the cord of my last hedge trimmer. Lucky not to be seriously injured. Being a Makita product I am sure it is going to be excellent. You will need a battery and a charger. Once purchased the world of corded tools can be safely said goodbye to. Buy Makita in the long run you will save money.

    Popped a 4Ah batter on this, used for an hour and the battery meter still showed all bars. Very sharp cutting bar. Very good results. Chalk and cheese compared to the Screfix special it replaced.

    What can you say? it’s a Makita and like all M products it is well engineered and SO MUCH better than anything else on the market. Lightweight, quiet and well balanced so easy to use. Worth buying a spare battery for peace of mind but to be honest I can get the job done on one charge no problem.

    I was concerned it would be underpowered but not so. Happily eats through a privet hedge, not noisy, cant believe I struggled with a horrid mains Bosch hedge trimmer for so many years.

    This is a very nice trimmer , works fine. Lightweight and easy to use. Running on a 4.0Ah battery and lasts ages.

    Excellent Makita quality as ever. Works surprisingly well. Don’t try to cut branches over 1cm with it! Battery life is good enough for most large gardens, such as mine. Easy to handle as it’s very light. Nice long blade.

    Excellent cutters, I have a 3ah battery which lasted 2 hours. These are sharp, lightweight and study. The only gripe is the safety features which means you have to nearly have 3 hands to switch it on! Probably due to EU rules so won’t necessarily blame Makita but 3 actions to turn it one is ridiculous

    Makita hedge trimmer has a high-quality blade which is capable of cutting the hedge and little branch beautifully. You can use an 18v battery to charge the cordless trimmer.

    That’s why I love it.

    Best recommended buy
