The Makita UH6570 is a 550-watt hedge trimmer. Thanks to the handle's clever design, it's suitable for both left- and right-handed people. Thanks to the 28-millimeter blade distance and 65-centimeter blade length, you can easily trim larger hedges with branches of up to 18 millimeters thick. The 3,200 cutting motions per minute ensure that you'll finish your work quickly. Safety has also been thought of for this model. The safety clutch prevents the machine from sticking and the electric brake ensures that the blades stop quickly once you release the 2-handed switch. The Makita UH6570 also comes with a blade protection cover, for safe storage.
