Perfect trimmer for the job
I got this with a Makita string trimmer deal and its perfect! Plenty of power for the job, lightweight, and I don't have to grab an extension cord and constantly change outlets and hope it doesn't fall in the pool. This is so convenient I'm sad I didn't get one sooner. I'm purchasing the blower next!

Not A Bad Little Trimmer
This is a Good Little Trimer. It will not cut thick branches. But for trimming Ive, Box wood and Ornamental grass It dose a good job. I have had a gas powered trimmer before and was not expecting it to be any thing like it. Got the Makita batteries so this was a good fit for me. I spent 20 or 30 min. getting use to it in the yard. and it dose a good job. Have a lot of ivy covered walls and it was grate for that. If you need cut anything as big as a pencil, on regular bases, you may wont to look at the it big brother that take 2 batt.

Lightweight but lack of power.
If you need to something light and easy to use around the house then this serve the purpose. Bought this because I have other Makita tools and figure I can use the same battery. A full charge battery last pretty close to advertise (75 mins). However, it lack power to cut anything 1/2 inch or bigger. To cut anything 1/2 in or bigger, you have to move slowly to allow the blade to chip off little by little. If you move to fast, the branch just cause the blade to stop completely.

Cordless is so much more convenient
Trimming was such a chore when using the corded hedge trimmer and the safety factor of possible cutting the cord when it got into the way. Almost enjoy trimming now.

It' a hedge trimmer it trims hedges. I have a few other tools with the batteries and chargers so the bare tool works out well.

Works Very Well
I wanted to migrate away from gas powered lawn tools and this hedge trimmer has worked very well. It let's me take advantage of my investment in other Makita 18V tools by using the same batteries. I haven't used it extensively, so I'm not sure about battery life, but I did use one of the 3amp batteries to trim the front flower bed shrubs with no problem. The blades seem very sharp.
