Makita XCU03PT1 Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Chain Saw Kit with 4 Batteries, 18V/14″

Landscapers and contractors are demanding more cordless alternatives to corded and gas-powered outdoor power equipment. Makita is meeting demand with an expanding line of cordless OPE, including the 18V X2 LXT (36V) Brushless Chain Saw Kit (model XCU03PT1). With zero emissions, lower noise, and considerably less maintenance, the Chain Saw is a welcome solution for cutting and trimming applications. It’s powered by two 18V LXT batteries for 36V power and run time, but without leaving the strongly-preferred 18V battery platform. And with the efficient Makita outer rotor brushless motor with direct drive system, users get high power efficiency that is equivalent to a gas chain saw. The Chain Saw has a 14″ guide bar and the Makita-built motor with variable speed delivers 0-3,940 FPM for increased cutting speed, but with less noise (only 100dB(A)). It has zero emissions and reduced maintenance: there’s no engine oil to change, no spark plug to replace, and no air filter or muffler to clean. And there’s no need to drain the fuel for storage. Simply pick it up, load two 18V LXT Lithium-Ion batteries, and the saw is ready to use. Convenience features include a “tool-less” chain adjustments, a front hand guard engineered to actuate chain brake when engaged, an electric brake for maximum productivity, and more. Model XCU03PT1 is a kit and includes the Chain Saw, four fast-charging 18V LXT Lithium-Ion 5.0Ah batteries and an efficient 18V Dual Port Rapid Optimum Charger.

Product Features

  • Makita-built outer rotor BL Brushless motor direct-drive system provides high power efficiency Equivalent to a 32cc gas chain saw

    First Makita tool I have ever returned…safety and productivity design defect. This is the first Makita tool I have ever returned (XCU03). I have many, many Makita 18v tools at my home and my ranch, including two of the prior cordless chainsaws (XCU02, which is actually one of my favorite Makita tools). The problem, as others have noted, is the “power” switch. This seemingly redundant power switch is a bit strange, as the prior XCU02 (like nearly all my Makita tools) has no redundant “power” switch. You simply inset batteries and pull the trigger…
