The Makita DUR369L twin 18v brushless line trimmer requires 2 x 18v batteries to operate and has been designed to suit the needs of commercial end-users in mind, who are looking for a high powered, quiet and easy to use alternative to a petrol machine, without the compromise on power. It features a loop handle and a steel drive shaft for less vibration and longer life. It has a 3 stage speed control -high, medium and low speed, that can be changed by simply pushing a button on the easy to use LED display.
Other features include a reverse switch that comes in handy when tangled grass clippings can be removed by slow reverse rotation of the cutting tool (automatically stops after three seconds) by pressing a button and pulling the trigger. The ADT (automatic torque drive technology) means the RPM is automatically shifted according to the density of weeds. For commercial users the AFT (active-feedback technology) is a great addition, for example when this machine is being used with a metal blade (optional) if it hits a solid object like a tree stump or fence, the sudden decrease in rpm triggers the brake, stopping kickback occurring.
As standard, it also comes with a maintenance-free carbon brushless motor with electronic control, that ensures a high motor efficiency and significantly less heat. It has counter-clockwise blade rotation -(blade rotation is the same as petrol brush cutters making it comfortable for traditional users).
PLEASE NOTE: If you select a 'Body Only' tool, it does not come with batteries, charger or a case.
