Introducing the Makita DUH523Z 18V LXT 520mm Hedge Trimmer Bare Unit, a tool designed with the needs of trade professionals and home DIY users in mind. This hedge trimmer is equipped with a removable blade that can be easily replaced without disassembling the housing, making it a practical choice for those who value efficiency and convenience.

The DUH523Z features a rubberized soft grip handle, designed to provide a comfortable and secure grip, enhancing your control and reducing fatigue during extended use.

This feature significantly reduces user fatigue and enhances comfort during operation.

Additionally, the DUH523Z is equipped with a battery capacity warning lamp that blinks red when the battery is nearly flat, providing a clear indication of when it's time to recharge.

Lightweight and durable.. great bit of kit for the garden. Cuts through new elderflower shoots up to about 20mm and just flies through the privet...

Powerful hedge trimmer Really good value

Maen, 30/03/2023

Cuts really well! Reasonably lightweight and cleans up easily. My only gripe is the plastic blade guard which is obviously prone to twisting and becoming misshapen and proving difficult to put back on after use.

Gary B, 28/03/2023

Usefully little tool

Daniel Hunt, 26/03/2023

I have been upgrading various tools to Makita LXT and this was on offer and looked a no-brainer deal from FFX. This is a fantastic upgrade from an older Ryobi cordless. I used a 5ah battery which makes it slighly unbalanced (3ah would be perfect), but cuts with ease and is as good as an electric trimmer. Only used so far on a short 8m leylandii hedge as a test, but looks like it will have plenty of run time. I'm well pleased with the purchase.

Andy Pearson, 18/03/2023

This I bought for my grandson so he didn't have to keep borrowing mine and he is well pleased with it

Mr Rigby, 02/01/2023

Light & easy to handle - can’t comment on blade durability yet - lasts OK with 5AH batteries

Powerful enough, nice and sharp light to handle and no cables to cut through! and as I have loads of other Makita tools, didn't need to purchase a battery

Wayne Farmer, 24/03/2021

Excellent product, service and delivery.

Mrs Lynne Edge, 31/12/2020

Good quick service

John Nealon, 24/12/2020

I found it ideal for light use around the ( Budlea , Box etc ) yet to try it on heavier growth . Seems robust but then l've only used it twice so far

Mr Simon Baker, 04/11/2020

After an evening of research this was the product I opted for. FFX had it at the cheapest price and delivery was free and next working day. So far it has out performed my expectations.

David Mason, 26/08/2020

Bought this to replace a Black and Decker corded trimmer. Am really pleased with the cutting power and the ease of use. Would recommend.
