Reviews
Makita 18V LXT Cordless Hedge Trimmer 1 x 5.0Ah is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for medium to large hedges Good cutters with long lasting battery, nice weight. Had three cuts to our privets now and work perfectly. The manufacturer had an offer of free shears with the product at the time but I was 2 weeks late in submitting my claim and they wouldn’t honour it, which is a shame

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makita Cordless Hedge Trimmer Usual Makita quality. I bought this to replace a petrol hedge trimmer that had got difficult to start and would starve itself of fuel. This is a lot lighter to handle and would definitely recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unhappy The trimmer and battery plus charger appear to operate OK I was disappointed to receive the item on the monday following a supposed attempt at delivery on the saturday scheduled. Also the packaging was damaged and showed that it had previously been opened. I went to the website to complain as there is no email address available, needless to say after more than a week I have had no response from Toolstation. I hope this review will prompt some response from the company. I append a photo of the package as delivered on 22/11/21

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makita hedge trimmer I’ve used it a couple of times and it’s been great, especially for precise work like on box hedging and conifers. The battery lasts a very long time. I own a few Makita tools which guided my purchase on this hedge trimmer and I’m still very impressed with the quality of their kit. Fingers crossed it lasts a few seasons but I certainly do feel reassured given the long warranty. Short term use by me so far: highly recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my best purchases Have a petrol strimmer which has hedge cutting attachment but it’s cumbersome and when tilted is starved of fuel so decided to grab one one of these and was not disappointed. Really light weight and easy to use. Took no time at all to do the job and hardly touched the 5.0 battery. 4 bars left. Highly recommended
