The Makita Electric Hedge Trimmer is better than any other I've used. The blades are further apart allowing better trimming for larger than usual bush branches, The blade is longer in length so easier to reach behind the bushes without standing on your
head. This trimmer is awesome.
My only complaint which has nothing to do with the trimmer itself was this item was sent to me from the store in a beat up, torn up box that was taped back together. I had thoughts this was the used store model. The original packaging was the thinner cardboard
like you see if you were to pick this item up in the store off the shelf. I had my doubts that I was going to accept this item. Everything seemed fine but I was quite upset that this wasn't packaged in a heavier box from the store. That was my only reason
