Makita continues to expand the inventory of cordless tools designed for the professional grounds maintenance industry, adding new technical features and improving performance.
The new Makita DUR189Z 18v LXT linetrimmer, which replaces the popular DUR184L model, has a 240 watt output Brushless motor providing capacity to run the head at three selected speed settings.
Having the motor at the drive head improves the balance of the machine and eliminates the loss of power through the traditional drive shaft where the motor is at the operator end of the machine.
The DUR189Z linetrimmer has the benefi t of the innovative Automatic Torque Drive Technology (ADT), where the revolutions per minute are automatically increased from between 4,000, 5,000 and 6,000rpm according to the density of the weeds and foliage being cut. This allows for greater and improved energy saving, lower noise levels, optimum operation and user comfort. A speed indicator is conveniently positioned on the control panel.
Makita’s new DUM604Z 18v LXT grass shears will be a favourite too and replaces the hugely popular DUM168 model. Fast, powerful and brilliantly handy, a compatible hedge trimmer attachment is also available that has a tool-less blade change. The shear has a double blade action, a cutting width of 160mm, and a 3-stage cutting height adjustment from 15 – 25mm for really fi ne work. With an ergonomically designed soft grip handle and light in weight at just 1.8kg, including the battery, user comfort is guaranteed while low noise emissions will ensure Sunday morning peace and quiet for family and neighbours. This model is available as a body only.
