Makita’s hedgetrimmers are ergonomically designed from our extensive experience and knowledge that a well-balanced tool will feel lighter and allow you to get the job done more quickly with less operator fatigue.
Makita’s range of electric hedgetrimmers include models that are made at the company’s factory in Telford, Shropshire. The range also features cordless models using Lithium-Ion battery technology and petrol models ranging from 22.2cc – 28.3cc.
Makita’s new and rugged long-reach pole hedge trimmer, the EN4950H, features a new gear drive transmission which converts the rotary shaft drive into cutting strokes for the 49cm long blade. This robust gear drive system can handle far greater power loading than the traditional rotating disc assembly, which often proves the Achilles heel of pole trimmers, especially in commercial grounds maintenance operations. The double-sided blade will run up to 2,100 strokes per minute and will cut 21.5mm branches with ease.
This pole trimmer, which has an overall length of 2.55 metres, is powered by the 25.4cc Makita MM4 4-stroke engine that delivers 1.03hp and 1.1Nm of torque. The MM4 engine is providing major fuel economies for landscape contractors with the additional benefits of low noise and clean emissions.
Weighing just 6.9kg the new Makita EN4950H pole hedge trimmer blade can be set at 13 alternative angle positions through a 135° arc from 45° tilt-up angle, to 90° tilt-down angle from the straight shaft horizontal position.
