Makita DUH551Z Twin 18v LXT Cordless 550mm Hedge Trimmer Body Only
The Makita DUH551 is a cordless hedge trimmer powered by 2x Makita 18v lithium-ion batteries giving the equivalent power of a 36v machine. It comes with a 550mm blade and a blade cover. The trimmer blade is a double-sided blade and its capable of up to 1,800 strokes per minute. It can cut up to 18mm diameter branches. It has five alternative handle positions and variable speed control which gives extra control - set the speed to low for trimming young leaves or a higher setting for more dense wood trimming. Because it is battery operated the noise level of this machine is very low. It features a battery capacity warning light that tells you when power level is low. When different battery capacities are used, this trimmer will stop when the battery with less capacity is empty. The battery capacity warning lamp will give warning of when the trimmer will stop.
The Makita twin 18v battery concept offers an expanding range of machines that utilise the established 18v lithium-ion battery capacity to deliver high power 36v performance whilst offering an economic purchase solution for existing Makita tool owners.
