But wait! There's more!
If you've used only electric or even cheap gas trimmers, you're in for a treat. The Makita is like a string chain saw. I'm not sure it's even possible to bog it down. If you have enough gas and trimmer line, you can probably take down an oak tree.
Since it uses a four-cycle engine, you don't have to mix oil into your gas--which means you're not burning that noxious oil-gas mix that you remember from two-cycle engines. All you do with the Makita is fill it with gas and trim everything. And it's FUN. You'll wind up looking for things to trim.
Here's some stuff you'll want to have around to use this serious piece of machinery:
Safety glasses (inexpensive clear shooting glasses are fine)
Hearing protection (this trimmer is relatively quiet, but this is still a good idea)
Gloves (to reduce hand tingling and also to help you grab branches and rocks to toss out of the way)
Tanaka 32308 No Brainer Quick Load Cutting Head for Straight Shaft String Trimmers (every trimmer in the world should come with this head)
You can get by without any of the things above except for the gas can and safety glasses. This is a powerful machine, and it _will_ fling things in your face. :)
i love it better than the stihl 2-stroke trimmer i used to own.
i use the metal blade in reverse for weeds so i never have to deal with the plastic string. i've actually had to turn the throttle down because it is just too powerful; (it also saves gas and doesn't explode rocks if you hit them).
there are some tools that just sing when yo use them, this is one of them. i've found myself using it more and more often, even on things i could easily do by hand; it is just so sweet to use.
the trigger is nice and large, for two fingers, so your index finger doesn't get tired. (this is standard on most pro-grade trimmers.)
the 4-stroke engine is so nice and easy to start. just add new unleaded gas, NO OIL NEEDED! then prime it, choke it, crank it and go. it starts up right away, every time. the 2-stroke engines, where you add oil, 30:1 for example, exhaust some of the fuel when the piston compresses inside the engine, leaving a dirty, polluting machine that is not the healthiest thing to be breathing and certainly isn't very green. the 4-stroke is a more powerful engine and there's no hassle mixing, just add gas and go.
makita has put a lot of quality into this tool and also has some very powerful chainsaws that equally compete with husqvarna and stihl.
i truly love this tool, you will too.
