This 520mm hedge trimmer by Makita has a user-friendly design, with rubber mouldings, ergonomic battery placement, and has reduced vibration thanks to the motor floating on a cushioned mount.
This means you have more comfort, and you can use it for longer periods without needing a break..
The large top handle means you can cut at any angle without much fuss or contortion..
This makes it the ideal pick for both gardening professionals who will be using these tools all day, and homeowners who may put off small jobs until they become big jobs.
The long-reach 520mm blade is user replaceable, and powerful enough to cut branches that are as thick as 12mm, making it super value for a battery operated tool.
It has a high speed capacity, hitting a whopping 1350 strokes per minute.
When it comes to noise, battery powered is the only way to go if you want a cordless hedge trimmer that won't annoy the neighbours.
