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.

The edger worked great. It was the first time I’ve edged my beds and it looked so much better. It will take a few more times to get it perfect. I used it with the cordless power head and it had the power and battery life to do the job.
This edger is heavy duty and solid. It is very easy to attach and use. Even my initial use on my overgrown sidewalk was a breeze. It ripped right through the overgrowth without slowing down. I use it on the sidewalk and driveway with ease now. I purchased it this year and used it all summer and it just glides straight down edge without any effort. I do my neighbors sidewalk also since it works so well, it takes so little time and looks fantastic. It does not rip up a wide hole along sidewalk like using a grass trimmer sideways does, it cuts a small straight edge right along the sidewalk. This Makita edger beat my expectations.
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.

It's a great product, solid, works well. The adjustment in the wheel is easy to get to, but it's hard to figure out if the position of moving it up or down is getting it to a consistent height because the front part is a slider that would need to run close to the edge. An edging attachment with two wheels would solve that.
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.
