The DUR364LZ line trimmer uses the brushless motor for increased power and longer run time. It will run up to 6,000rpm and has a maximum 350mm cutting diameter. The unit has a soft-grip D-handle and electronic two-speed control with Eco-mode. Weight is just 4.5kg, vibration rating 2.5m/s2 and noise output 81dB(A).

Developed as the most powerful cordless blower available, the DUB362Z LXT blower runs up to 21,500rpm, produces a maximum air volume of 4.4m3/min with a maximum air speed of 53m/s.

An advantage on the blower sees air volume and speed adjusted through six settings with variable control by the trigger to achieve consistency. The unit also has a telescopic nozzle. Weight is 4.5kg, vibration rating 2.5m/s2 and maximum noise 79.1dB(A).
