The Makita DUH523RT 18v LXT Cordless Hedge Trimmer kit includes 1 x 5Ah 18v LXT battery and DC18RC fast charger. It features a 520mm double-sided stain-free shear blade with a surface of glittering silver, obtained by non-electrolyzed nickel plating that produces a high anti-abrasion surface for long life. This makes it user replaceable without the need to disassemble the housing.

The rubberised soft grip provides a comfortable and sure grip and the anti-vibration structure has 5 cushions that absorb the vibration from the blade and crank. A battery indicator on the handle flashes red when power is getting low and is solid red when battery power is exhausted.

    Great trimmer easy to use, light and quiet, battery has lasted for 2 days doing bits of trimming. Does not cut really big stuff , but its spec does not not say that it would. Getting a spare battery as a promotional deal , 50 pounds off really.

    Great product, price and 5*service again from Radmore & Tucker. Trimmer itself is quiet and efficient and works great. Shame it’s not brushless but apart from that can’t fault it.

  3. Nicholas Gillard (verified owner)

    Quality hedge trimmer (it is a Makita), and excellent service from R & T including the tip off that purchasing this item included eligibility for a free offer item from Makita – I filled out the forms on line at Makita and qualified for a free leaf blower. Many thanks

  4. Nigel (verified owner)

    Good price and very fast delivery from R&T. The free battery from Makita is a bonus. I already own numerous 18 v Makita power tools and decided to buy the hedgetrimmer when my petrol trimmer expired. Very impressed with the battery trimmer which compares well with the petrol version and far less hassle!
