Makita DUH523 18v LXT Cordless Hedge Trimmer 520mm

Battery AH Explained

The best way to describe battery amp hour is that this is effectively the size of your fuel tank, the more amp hours your battery has then the longer the battery will last between charges. More amp hours does not increase the power of a given tool.

Battery Voltage Explained

A tool with a higher voltage than another is a bit like choosing an engine in a car, the higher voltage will generally mean higher power & performance. As with cars though a bigger engine does not always translate to better performance so it is important to compare the specifications of tools at different voltages between different manufacturers.

Customer Questions & Answers

Joseph Devine asked on 12/10/2021

Q : What is the average running time of the battery?

TooledUp answered on 13/10/2021

A : There's no easy answer to this as runtime can vary depending on how hard the machine is working (e.g how tough the hedge is) but note this hedge trimmer can also be used with any Makita 18v LXT battery, and these batteries are available in various sizes. If you're referring to the 5ah battery that is available as a kit option on our website I think this will probably provide at least an hours worth of runtime in most cases.

David Abbott asked on 03/08/2021

Q : Will a makita 18v 3.0ah li-ion work with this model

TooledUp answered on 04/08/2021

A : Hi David, it's compatible with all of Makita's 18v LXT batteries so as long as it's one of them you'd be fine. Makita do have another 18v li-ion battery platform which is called G-series and the batteries are white, but I'm not sure if they do one in 3.0ah. For reference we stock an LXT 3.0ah Makita battery on product code 21020672
