The Makita UH6580 is a powerful electric hedge trimmer with 670 watts of power. It has a blade length of 65cm and a blade spacing of 28mm, so you can easily cut large hedges with branches of up to 21 millimeters thick. You can easily use the hedge trimmer in any desired position, thanks to the 3-fold rear handle that also makes the trimmer suitable for left-handed people. This hedge trimmer won't come up short when it comes to safety either. The nose piece prevents kickback and protects the blades, while the mechanical brake ensures that the blade stops within 0.2 seconds. Finally, the cable guide of the UH6580 ensures that the cable remains out of range of the blades.
