Quality all the way in materials and engineering. The only yard multitool I researched without any negative reviews. Im sure this would have lasted me years had it accepted other brand tools. Makita uses a female spindle receptor for attachments which doesnt take standard square shaped pegs. the poles dont even fit together, so unfortunately this will be returned. Makita Attachments are another 200$+ each, so this tool is really only for the established professional as a set of tools would be a grand.
I purchased my mm4 makita 4 stroke, sept 17 2020 and although I am sure this product will preform well mostly because it has a medal shaft rather than other similar weed eaters that use a wire shaft which is a lot my probable to bog down easier in thicker weeds. Also I'm sure will preform better than the 2 stroke weed eater motors with more power and less starting issues. I do have 1 issue and thats how the title description is presented. Picture of product is small and looks complete with a head on it if your not looking closely and the wording in title is not well written to use words so the consumer would know it DOES NOT COME WITH ANY HEAD and ultimately won't work untill an additional attachment is purchased and that includes the basic weed eating head you might think should come with it from the start. I missed a work job due to this. I hope this helps anyone thats about to buy.
Fired up on the first pull. It is very quiet compared to 2-cycle trimmers and I love no longer having to mix gas/oil. The shoulder strap greatly reduces the strain on the lower back. Be sure to pick up some oil as it does not include any in the box (SAE 10W-30 oil of API Classification, Class SF or higher (4-stroke engine for automobile)). This particular brand got top reviews across the internet. I would highly recommend.

I was upset with myself for thinking I was getting a weed eater for way over 300 dollars. When it got here it was just the shaft and motor and we had to order the weed eater extension separate. It was worded kind of tricky. hopefully the next person will realize they have to order the weed eater attachment separate just like the other attachments. It works good, my husband has arthritis bad so we were hoping for a 10 lb item but with the attachment its much more than that.He has to get use to not hitting the kill switch. He has also flooded it a few times.
