Makita Cordless 12-inch Top Handle Chain Saw XCU10

Makita Cordless 12-inch Top Handle Chain Saw XCU10

The new compact battery-powered chain saw has a Makita-built outer rotor brushless motor direct-drive system that the company says will provide power equivalent to a 22cc gas chain saw. Using one 4.0Ah battery, the XCU10 can make up to 150 cuts in 2×2 cedar. For additional power, the Torque Boost Mode helps the chainsaw cut through thick and hard branches. A captured guide bar nut and lateral chain tensioning offer convenient operation and maintenance.

Users can automatically adjust chain lubrication with a large oil reservoir. A large oil filling port with view window allows the user to easily add and check bar oil level. The 3/8” LP, 0.43” sprocket nose guide bar and chain provide precise cutting. The chain saws also feature Makita’s Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™)., which is a series of integrated seals engineered to channel away dust and water for increased durability. The XCU10 operates at a lower noise level, providing user comfort and preventing a disruption for neighbors or nearby businesses. The compact top-handle design makes it ideal for the professional tree care industry.

Powered by one 18V LXT® Battery, the chain saw is easy to start. For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created Star Protection Computer Controls™ that allow the tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita 18V LXT® and Compact Lithium-Ion Batteries with the star symbol on the battery, indicating Star Protection inside. The chain saw has a built-in L.E.D. on/off switch with an auto power-off function that automatically shuts the saw off after 60 seconds for extended battery life. It has a rubberized soft grip top handle and comes with a 3-year limited warranty, a 12″ guide bar (3/8” LP pitch at 0.043” gauge, item E-00066), a 12″ saw chain (E-02440), a bumper spike (199068-2) and a universal 13mm x 16mm wrench (782023-7). The chain Speed is 4,720 FPM and the net weight without battery is 5.4 lbs. (6.7 lbs. with an 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion battery).
