User reviews for the Makita XHU02M1 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Hedge Trimmer Kit have been mostly positive. Some users have noted that the trimmer has struggled to cut branches thicker than .75 inches in diameter, but performs well on smaller branches. This model is also pricier than most of its competitors; however, for what is included with the purchase (the hedge trimmer, 18V lithium-ion battery, rapid optimum battery charger, and a blade cover), it offers an excellent value.
