I am usually a big fan of Makita garden machinery, but this is a poorly designed and poorly made machine. The first one I had developed a loose cutting head after less than 10 uses and then stopped working. It was sent back to Makita, who got it working again, but did not remedy the loose head. After a further two returns - which each time left me without a machine for 2-3 weeks - they still hadn't fixed the loose head, which by this time was moving during use and had to be held up with string. I provided a video of the fault and they wanted it back to look at a fourth time, but I lost my temper and demanded a replacement. Apart from this issue, the machine switches itself off as soon as you let go of the trigger, which is incredibly annoyin, as you have to keep pressing the power button. Makita say this is a safety feature but can't explain how it makes it safer. Overall, this is a terrible tool, which is a shame, because it is a nice size and weight, is surprisingly powerful and is really nice to use apart from the powering down issue.

An excellent hedge trimmer, not least due to the light weight and good balance compared to a petrol model. Did just over 2 years of professional use before needing replacement, and then the old one only needs a new motor! Recommended.

Ian Andrews, 03/10/2023

Superb bit of kit. Used a 6ah battery and last an ages.

Customer, 06/08/2023

Works well, light and manageable. But expensive compared to other similar products. If I didnt already have a Makita battery and charger for another tool I would have bought a cheaper alternative.

Simon Squance, 02/08/2023

I was extremely surprised at how good these trimmers are . Even after reading such good reviews they still surpassed my expectations

Mr Ian Tomline, 30/07/2023

The Makita hedge cutter is an easy to use cordless machine, I use it with a 5 amp battery and have been surprised as to how long it will cut for with a no 2 setting. It helps to keep the blades clear and lubricated wd40 or similar. It’s a great machine and I would recommend it

M Shoesmith, 06/07/2023

This is excellent, makes trimming hedges less of a chore. Would highly recommend this trimmer and wish I bought it sooner.

Customer, 06/07/2023

Great feel and balance, straightforward to operate. Manageable weight, efficient cut. Auto power off is quite keen/quick

Kevin Thomas, 06/07/2023

Great bit of Makita kit. Very sharp teeth on the blade and cut thru hedges well. Negatives: the safety switch is a pain and has to be reactivated to make it work far too often. It is quite heavy but at least it has a robust construction.

Jimmy, 05/07/2023

Good tool. Nice to be able to reach without ladders. Thanks

Richard roe, 28/06/2023

Great piece of kit & being brush less is just what I wanted, very few have this feature.

CP, 23/05/2023

Excellent product, only thing that lets it down is the safety timer switch .

Philip Wilson, 04/11/2022

Was going for the 461 but out of stock, so paid the extra 100 and went for this. Glad I did excellent battery life 5amp battery lasts ages. It cuts really well and not too heavy. Typical Makita quality. Fox were quick with free delivery to Northern Ireland

Another fine makita product.... Once again makita hit the nail on the head... Good range and move able head make this a well suited tool

Keith , 22/05/2022

Good machine, decent power

stephanie hanratty, 04/02/2022

I have a large collection of Makita 18v Gardening tools and used to 36v DUX60 multitool with hedge trimmer attachment for a few years but wanted something lighter for light pruning jobs. This tool ticks all the boxes, great runtime with a 5ah battery, very lightweight and well balanced, wished I had bought it sooner.

Anthony Fiore, 07/11/2021

A strongly built peace of kit does the job well

Thomas Pearce, 28/10/2021

Reasonable well balanced. Angle of cutting is very useful. Great and quite precise cutter for our Laylandi hedge.

Dave, 05/08/2021

Great machine

Mark Beckmann, 26/07/2021

Product excellent and a great price from FFX, however a weeks delay on receiving product. Advert detailed weeks delivery it took 2 weeks, however FFX did offer compensation of £10.00 very welcomed but a bit slim on offer. FFX did not shy away from problem and they did delivery product as soon as was available, which FFX worked to resolve.

Trevor Mitchell, 24/07/2021

I used the pole hedge trimmer on a tall tree to cut branches back and I was very pleased with the product as cuts through easily and price was very good and prompt delivery a well made product I am giving it 5 stars

Mr Tony James, 13/07/2021

powerful easy to use unit. has reduced time cutting my many hedges considerably.

Michael Vause, 05/07/2021

I chose Makita as I already have the battery charger and 2 5 amp hour 18v batteries for my other cordless tools . I usually use the medium-speed setting for most applications , I reckon I got at least 3 hours from one charge. It’s very easy to handle and I really like the way it folds in half for transportation and storage. As with all Makita tools it’s a quality bit of kit.

Customer Earth Works, 24/06/2021

Super quiet... Work really well. Thanks

Davina, 15/06/2021

The quality of this item looks really good. It looks a lot more robust that the Stihl HLA56 which is the other model I was considering buying. Really quiet in use.

Mr L, 19/03/2021

Good machine for trimming high hedge
