Expert review

The Makita DUR189Z is a cordless grass trimmer that uses a rechargeable 18V battery, quite a low voltage compared with many trimmers. However, one of its features is an ‘automatic torque drive’, which is designed to change the cutting speed according to the task. Find out whether this made a difference to its performance by reading our full review.
