The Makita UH4570 is a 550-watt hedge trimmer. Thanks to the smart hand grip design, it's suitable for both left-handed and right-handed people. Thanks to the 45-centimeter blade length and the power to cope with up to 18-millimeter branch thickness, you can easily trim small to medium-sized hedges. Meanwhile, the 1,600 cutting motions per minute ensure you'll get through your pruning work smoothly. This model was also designed with safety in mind. The safety slip clutch prevents the machine from getting stuck, while the electric brake ensures the blades will quickly come to a stop when you let go of the 2-handed switch. Other than that, the Makita U4570 comes with a protective blade cover for safe storage.
