All Makita outdoor power products are designed with Makita's core values of reliability, power and efficiency whilst utilising the best advances in technology. All product areas have been researched and developed by Makita to the highest standards for the needs of the professional user.
The Makita UH5580 has a powerful 700 watt electric motor with easy change carbon brushes and heavy duty gearbox. The 55cm double sided, dual action blades make hedge trimming easy and fast cutting on both the upward and downward sweep. Generous tooth gap allow for branches up to a maximum diameter of 21mm to be cut with ease.
Safety is paramount with all Makita power products and the UH5580 features an electronic blade brake so the blades stop the instant the power is cut and triple safety switching, the unique 3 way rear handle can be held in 3 positions, each with a safety power switch together with a second switch on the front handle. The machine will only work if the rear and front handle are held simultaneously, release one handle and the blades stop instantly. The handles also feature rubber soft grip handles for greater grip.
