Really pleased with this trimmer. I am not so reluctant to get out and trim the hedges now. Nice and quiet. Neat cuts. As I already have Makita tools, there's no battery anxiety.

I needed a decent hedge trimmer to cut a fairly tall & wide hawthorn hedge, so did a fair bit of research on "best buy" trimmers before deciding on this one. Very pleased that I did, as it is a joy to use, managing some really thick growth of up to 1/2 inch. The Makita is light enough to allow me to stretch out over the top of the hedge (5 ft wide in places) to reach the bits in the middle. Don't know how good some of the other trimmers are, but well pleased with the Makita DUH523Z

This is nice, light-weight trimmer suitable for thin branches. Although it has a maximum cut diameter of 15 mm, it struggles to cut anything above 10 mm and is only suitable for new growth. The cutting time is more than adequate from a 3.0 Ah battery and the blades are bright nickel plated which reduces resin build-up. Recommended for light work.

Brilliant trimmer. Not heavy but chunters through everything I have thrown at it - privet, leylandi - but fine enough for topiary on my ornamental box hedge. Low rpm but all the better for that as no energy wasted in useless revs and very quiet action.

Very good overall, only slight issue is the weight compared to a corded type and similarly less power than corded. I expected this and have a corded model aswell to tackle other jobs.

This hedge trimmer is great. I used it with a 3ah 18v lxt battery I already had. At first I was a little underwhelmed by the blade speed when I first put the battery in and wasn't sure about using it, but after reading a few more reviews, I found other people had felt the same at first glance. Once I used it, my mind was put to rest instantly. It cut through a variety hedges perfectly with no difficulty, down to the start of the thick branches which is all I needed. I used it for over an hour, on and off the trigger, and it still seemed to have plenty of battery life left in it. I instantly put the battery back on charge and it didn't take long to recharge. With a 5ah battery you could get a bit more "cutting strength" out of it to go through a few of the thicker branches if you really needed to. Without the battery Its weight to be more the back end, more so with the battery added, but it was light enough for me. If you went for the long blade model, this may help balance the weight a bit more. Overall, great product. Just what I expect from Makita.

Machine sounds under powered, but cuts cleanly and without any stress or issues. Value for money as I have two 4.2v battery packs for other Makita tools.

Really pleased with the product up to now. I have fitted my bosch combi table mitre saw and it fits well and has made it much easier to use. The entire product seems very well made as you would expect from makita. The only downside seems to be the plastic wheels may not last too long but we will mostly be carrying it by the undermount handle. I would reccomend this product.
