Hey all you Makita fans this is a great piece of kit to add to you collection.
And if you regretter it you get and extra 2 years warranty too, making it 3 years for free.

Great to have just as a quick and easy touch up around the edges.

The info from the site.

  • Compatible with 1.5, 3.0, 4.0 and 5.0Ah Lithium-Ion batteries NB old style batteries.
  • The spool end is reinforced with a metal cap for increased wear resistance
  • Adjustable loop-handle can be adjusted according to user's height and working posture
  • Bump and Feed cord feeding system (Single-cord cutting)
  • Shaft length adjustable up to 180mm


Bought one last year @£ 67 and it went back to around £90, so the prices dose move, never been below this price though

Cheap enough but doesn't take the LXT batteries which is a bummer.

Edit: I should fact checked before making this statement, just saw the part about runs on old batteries!

Thanks @Rembos for correcting me.

I take it back! In which case I'll give it hot.
Would you recommend it? Been on the lookout but not sure whether to go for Makita cordless or find a reasonably priced petrol for a little more heavy duty work.

Better off with the petrol if you'll be doing harder graft

Only single line as opppsed to double line at the cutting head. Swapped my cheap petrol strimmer for this as always had problems with starting that. For cutting edges and medium length grass about 6 inches long is great. The main reason I bought this was I own lots if LXT tools. If I didn't own the batteries I would probably have bought the Dewalt one in Screwfix which my mate has but is twice the price of this without batteries. At the end of the day for general garden use and less that £70 I would buy again. Hope this helps

Looking around and if you dont have the batteries it can work out expensive, but generally you dont buy Makita if you have DeWalt etc. unless you get a great offer on a full kit incl battery(s) and charger.
Batteries start for genuine ones, around £30 and the same for a charger. Screwfix only sell 4ah and 5ah.
I have one battery that is not a genuine one (FLAGPOWER 18V 5.0Ah Li-ion Replacement Battery for Makita) as I got the chance to review it at half price and a year on is is still like new performance.

I have one, they are very convenient as don't have to mess with trying to start a petrol engine. You wouldn't want to brushcut a meadow with one - but for the odd bit of strimmimg they are perfect.
Got an different model but Makita.. love it..used for garden and taking to sort out graves.. works great lasts a long time.. heat added.
£66 without a battery and charger.

Are there many benefits over a corded because abranded corded strimmers are about £30? Quite a price difference. A Makita 3ah battery and charger will set you back £60.

Looks hot to me!
There is a little raised piece of plastic on the base of these older models which if you file off,a minutes work,then it takes the new batteries no problem.Not sure about the warranty then but I have been doing this for years with no problems.
I own this and paid a similar price. Very happy with it. I agree that it isn't for heavy use, and similar corded ones can be bought considerably cheaper however I wouldn't consider one after using this cordless one.
Great kit hot. Best kept secret. Better than any beard trimmer in the market. May be even use it for hair cuts.
I wouldn't fancy using this only on my body
