Love These!
I own a landscaping company and was so excited to try these! 4 months in and weekly use and they're great. Lighter then gas models, performance is almost the same. They've cut 15 sets of hedges and are very effective. Love the blade speed. It helps if you already have Makita 18v battery tools. I have drills, an impact driver, blower, house vacuum. Already had 10 batteries so I only had to buy "tool only"
