The Makita DUR364LZ is powered by two 18v batteries in series to supply the energy to the powerful 36v DC motor, and compatible with any combination of 3Ah, 4Ah or 5Ah batteries (please note the unit will cease to run once either battery has depleted). The brushless motor is more efficient than standard motors giving longer run time per battery cell of around 30% and also requiring less maintenance.
Dual battery indicators display the remaining fuel charge left in each battery and XPT (extreme protection technology) prevents dust, airborne debris and moisture from entering the unit and causing damage. Other features include soft start, variable speed dial, electric brake and electronic current limiter for overload protection.
The unit is lightweight, well balanced and comfortable to use with an ergonomic loop handle design with rubberised grip and a shoulder strap for continuous operation. Noise levels are extremely low, just 89dB(A) making it suitable for use in domestic and public areas and vibration is extremely low making it suitable for extended use.
A reverse switch is handy to untangle weeds and long grass from the head and a nylon head is supplied as standard.
