JULY 21, 2008 – La Mirada, CA   Makita USA, Inc., manufacturer of high quality industrial power tools and accessories, is proud to announce the release of its new 24.5 cc Brush Cutter (model EM4250CA; top-right) and 24.5 cc String Trimmer (model EM4251CA; below right). Both models are powered by a powerful 24.5 cc commercial-duty engine, and are designed with a range of user-friendly features for comfort and ease-of-use. In addition, both models are compliant with the State of California’s rigorous emissions standard.
