The Makita range of linetrimmers and brush cutters features cordless, electric and petrol models for every task. Many models feature the latest 4-stroke MM4 engine technology which bristles with design innovations to deliver more horsepower, more torque and more reliability than the same capacity 2-stroke motor whilst at the same time dramatically reducing exhaust emissions, cutting fuel consumption, lowering noise and limiting vibration. Makita’s high-technology 4-stroke MM4 engine is at the heart of the EX2650LH split shaft brush cutter that can be fitted with four useful optional attachments – linetrimmer, cultivator, pole saw and hedgetrimmer. This versatile grounds care machine is ideal for maintenance contractors, major property owners and tool hire operations.
The new Makita DUR187 18v LXT linetrimmer has a 240watt output Brushless motor in the trimmer head, providing capacity to run the head at three selectable speed settings up to 4,000, 5,000 and 6,000rpm. Speed selection is by a button on the control panel in front of the variable speed control trigger which has a lock-off facility.
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. This new Makita cordless linetrimmer features the innovative Automatic Torque Drive Technology, ADT, where the revolutions per minute are automatically increased from between 4,000 and 6,000rpm according to the density of the weeds being cut. This allows for greater and improved energy saving and lower noise levels.
The lightweight design of the new Makita DUR187 linetrimmer gives an operating weight of just 3.4kgs with comfortable shoulder strap, soft grip handle and forward loop handle for maximum machine control. A foldable wire guard protects the forward sector of the 300mm cutting circle against plant and hard object damage. Soft start, electric brake and reverse rotation add to the efficiency of this new Makita linetrimmer, which is only available as a body only model.
The new Makita DUR183 2-piece linetrimmer is ideal for operators who need to transport equipment in smaller vehicles. The 2-section shaft and split-drive shaft simply slot together and are locked with a single action clasp. Slightly heavier than the DUR187 at 4.1kg, this new 2-piece linetrimmer has the same quality attributes with high power output and longer run-time.
