    Received the trimmer very quickly. I also ordered the 6AH battery and It works excellent and for a long time. The little reverse button is handy when a something gets jammed. The Battery fits lots of other Makita power tools as well. Very good trimmer and a very good company to buy from.

    This is a fantastic product from Makita. Setting 1 deals with most light foliage. Crank it up to 3 for tough hawthorns or holly. It’s very quiet and is ergonomically designed and balanced to make hard to reach areas cuttable without breaking your back or testing your guns too much. Good company and very Knowledgeable and friendly delivery rep.

    I’ve got a lot of hedge to maintain and I was using an Echo multi tool that was great but getting to be too heavy in my old age. Thought about a Stihl but with charger and batteries it was nearly £500. I’ve already got Makita cordless tools so just had to buy the bare machine. The price and service from Radmore and Tucker was first class and it arrived the following morning. I’ve used the Makita DUN500 hedge trimmer for the best part of four days now and am delighted with it. It’s so much lighter, it runs for a couple of hours on a 4amp hour battery and cuts as well as the petrol Echo.

    Very good product (Makita 18v dun 500 hedge trimmer) at a very competitive price. Delivery was quick and on time. The machine is brilliant to use with no trailing wires etc. I have used this company before and found them to be very good at what they do.

    Brilliant product. Worked great straight out of the box. ( with charges makita battery) Did exactly what I wanted with ease. Slightly heavy when starting to work higher hedges/ branches or perhaps that was because the battery kept going for a long time. I have other makita tools so this complemented my current collection and of course the batteries are fully compatible saving me from incurring additional costs. Ordering was very quick and straightforward and delivery was next working day. Have used Radmore Tucker before and the previous transaction also went smoothly. Will continue buying Makita and will continue buying through Radmore Tucker.

    Bought this Makita DUN500 August 2022, this hedge trimmer was initially out of stock but Radmore & Tucker went the extra mile.

    They called the manufacturer to check when new stocks would be delivered, called me back with an update all on the same day which enabled me to place my order via the web site. I was then updated on the progress of my order. Well done R&T on your service, the lady I spoke to was excellent and was so helpful it was an easy decision to place this order with R&T.

    The hedge trimmer I can’t give you a review on yet other than to say I am a Makita fan and expect my tool will be excellent in use.
