Once you accept the incredible power and efficiency of Makita’s 18V lithium iron battery and the success of the range and market share of battery power tools sold in the UK on their 18v platform , it’s easy to see why Makita expanded into outdoor Garden Equipment. There is obviously a ready made market operating the 18v and 36 v system amongst Tradesmen who have to “do the garden “! Why not quickly and more quietly start up the hedge trimmer or lawn mower etc.No messing with cables ( and occasionally petrol motors ) Makita have applied their renown design expertise and quality manufacturing techniques to produce a reliable and robust range.
If gardening is pleasurable to you - it may now be a joy !
If it’s a chore - it may become more pleasurable!
