Power tool manufacturer Makita has expanded its outdoor power equipment range with a selection of new XGT 40VMax machines including the UR002G 40VMax Brushless Brush Cutter and UH004G, UH005G, UH006G and UH007G 40VMax Brushless Hedge Trimmers.
The UR002G Brush Cutter includes three speed settings and can deliver output up to 6,500rpm for maximum productivity. Makita’s innovative Automatic Torque Drive Technology (ADT) works to change the cutting speed according to the load conditions, so users can trust that the machine is always working at its optimum. What’s more, the UR002G has Active Feedback Sensing Technology (AFT) that shuts down the tool if the rotation speed suddenly slows to prevent kickback and protect the user. For ease of use, the UR002G features a reverse switch to easily remove any material that gets stuck in the blade.
The UR002G is also compatible with Makita’s PDC01 and PDC1200 backpack batteries, so users can extend machine run time and reduce downtime to maximise time on site. The UR002G is also compatible with a selection of nylon heads and blades depending on the task.
The new UH004G and UH005G Hedge Trimmers deliver a no-load speed of up to 5,000rpm and feature an asymmetric, double sided, curved, sharp-edged blade for easy trimming. The curved teeth reduce friction resistance to suppress energy loss and extend run time. What’s more, the inclined tooth edge enables the blade to easily catch, firmly hold and sharply cut twigs or thin branches up to 23.5mm for maximum efficiency. Completing the new hedge trimmer collection, the UH006G and UH007G have been designed for trimming overgrown hedges and thick branches thanks to the non- curved, sharp-edged blade. These machines can cut thicker branches up to 25mm in diameter and are ideal for rough cutting.
