    Makita petrol pole hedge trimmer? 17th May 19 at 9:44 PM
    My battery powered pole trimmer is getting tedious to use and I am helping elderly friends with more hedge than the battery one can manage, as well as my own hedges.

    I quite fancy a petrol pole trimmer, especially the 4 stroke Makita series. However, the manual says branch diameter of 7mm, various adverts mention 21.5mm. I am guessing it will cleanly cut 7mm or chew through a branch of 21.5mm...

    Any thoughts on the capabilities of these Makita trimmers?
