Makita extends outdoor maintenance range

Published: 27 July 2017

Four new machines have been introduced to Makita's range of outdoor maintenance and grounds care equipment with the latest 4-stroke MM4 engine technology at the heart of two of them.


The power and performance of the MM4 engine, which Makita said delivers more horsepower, torque and reliability, is coupled with low running costs, noise and vibrations and reduced fuel consumption.

The 18v UM603D Grass Shear G-Series is fast and powerful and available with a hedge trimmer attachment that has a tool-less blade change. The shear has a double blade action; a cutting width of 160mm and 3-stage cutting height adjustment from 15–25mm for really fine trimming such as topiary. With an ergonomically designed soft grip handle and light in weight at 1.5kg, low noise emissions will keep neighbours happy.  

This model is compatible only with a Makita G-Series battery and available as a body only option with hedge trimmer attachment. The other three new machines are a 4-stroke MM4 back-pack blower; 4-stroke MM4 line trimmer with spring-assisted recoil starter; and 4-stroke mulching lawn mower which cuts close to walls.

The Makita range of outdoor maintenance and grounds care tools continues to expand with tools and innovative systems that are designed for professional users and keen gardeners everywhere.
