Makita XGT 40V 30″ Single-Sided Hedge Trimmer

The Makita XGT® 40V max Brushless 30″ Single-Sided Hedge Trimmer (GHU05) is a high-performance solution for fast and efficient trimming. It delivers the power of a 22.7cc gas-equivalent hedge trimmer and up to 13% more torque for cutting thick branches, but with lower noise, less maintenance, zero emissions, and no pull starts. It delivers up to 6 hours of run time on a single charge of a 40V max XGT® 4.0Ah battery.

For efficient cutting, the 30″ dual-action single-sided shear blade has bevel-tipped curved 3-sided teeth that easily catch and hold branches for clean cuts with reduced friction. In addition, it has a full-length debris shield for efficient clipping collection and clean-up.

XGT® is a system of equipment, tools, batteries, and chargers utilizing 40v max lithium-ion batteries. XGT® is engineered to deliver high power to take on high-demand applications, allowing users to completely transition to a cordless job site. XGT is equipped with advanced brushless motor engineering, intelligent digital communication, and superior durability features to outpower, outsmart and outlast the rest.

There are 2 feature models of the GHU05 30″ Single‑Sided Hedge Trimmer. The choice is with or without battery and charger. Options for the Makita GTP01 are:

  1. GHU05Z: Tool only
  2. GHU05M1: Tool, 40V max XGT® Lithium-Ion 4.0Ah battery and rapid charger
