There is growing demand for cordless alternatives to gas-powered outdoor power equipment. Makita is meeting demand with an expanding line of cordless OPEN, including the 18-Volt LXT Brushless 10 in. Top Handle Chain Saw (model XCU06Z). with zero emissions, lower noise, and considerably less maintenance, the XCU06Z is a welcome solution for cutting and trimming applications, and the compact top-handle design makes it ideal for the professional tree care industry. Powered by one 18-Volt LXT battery (sold separately) for maximum power, speed and run-time, the XCU06Z uses the strongly-preferred 18-Volt 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 XCU06Z has a variable speed trigger and high chain speed (0-4,720 FPM) for increased cutting speed, with torque boost mode for cutting dense material. 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 load the 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion battery (sold separately), and the saw is ready to use.

Great little saw! It has plenty of power for small to medium jobs. It's very light, so you don't wear out your arm carrying it around. I spent most of a day cutting firewood and trimming brush, and it worked perfectly. The photo shows the mountain of brush that was light work with this saw. It likes batteries, so be sure you have some charged batteries ready. I'd recommend using 3.0 or higher. Luckily, the Makita charger is so fast, I was able to fully charge one battery before the other one ran out. So I could have kept going all day. The package includes a chain, a nice multi-tool for adjustments, a storage bag and a plastic bar/chain cover. The bag only holds the body; the bar will be sticking out. It does NOT come with bar and chain oil (which is essential for use) or a shoulder strap. Please buy the biodegradable oil and protect our environment! It does leak some oil during storage, so don't leave it on your antique oriental rug. All in all, I'm very happy with this saw. It's easy and fun to use!

      Great tools, nice and lightweight and compact. I am able to fit this and some accessories (batteries and scrench) into one of my smaller toolboxes. This loses a star from me because with Cordless tools I want convenience and I am bias towards the tool free tensioners on other chainsaws, but I would have overlooked thhe omission here if this had an onboard storage for the scrench. This does not, so if you forget to grab it, once the chain sags, that's it. This produced nice clean cut a when I used it to chop up some limbs( On the ground). The one handed operation allowed me to hold the limb in one hand and the chainsaw in the other. I was able to rotate it while I cut it, to reduce the binding up. Suggestions: Add an LED, on board storage for a scrench or tool free tensioning system.

      This lightweight chainsaw is a great tool for quick pruning and small limbing jobs. The compact size with the 10” bar makes it easy to maneuver and it has enough power to get through hard or soft woods. As to be expected with an 18v cordless tool, it does not have huge torque so it can’t start the chain in contact with the cutting surface (which is best practice anyway). The bar oil is easy to fill and does not appear to leak with the tool off. Also, the bar lock nut is captive in the side of the housing, making it impossible to drop/lose in real-life use in rough conditions. A conveniently located power button on the main handle prevents accidental startup if the trigger is pulled which has an additional safety switch that is normally depressed by a standard grip of the handle. Bottom line is that this is a handy tool to do basic yard and tree cleanup with nice features and a solid execution.

      The MAKITA 10 inch 18 Volt LXT Lithium-ion brushless cordless top handle chain saw is great for home owners and landscapers! It is truly a must to read the cordless chain saw instruction manual prior to operation. It provides important information about operator safety and how to prolong the life of your MAKITA battery operated chain saw (model XCU06). The 18V LXT Lithium-ion battery and charger starter pack, 5.0 Ah works great. It charges the battery in 45 minutes or less. Note overcharging shortens the battery service life! Press the check button on the battery cartridge to indicate the remaining battery capacity. This chain saw also has a 30 second Torque Boost mode for cutting thick branches or hard branches. Remember Safety First! The proper amount of chain saw blade lubricating oil is 140 ml or 4.7 ounces.

      The Makita 10 in. 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Top Handle Chain Saw (Tool-Only) Model # XCU06Z is a small saw weighing 7.2 lbs. yet powerful enough for cutting and trimming applications. There is a growing demand for cordless tooling and setting aside the gas powered equipment. With Extreme Protection Technology (XPT) engineered to provide dust and water resistance and Star Protection Technology allowing the tool and battery to protect against overloading, and overheating. Makita is a great choice. The XCU06Z has an outer rotor brushless motor with a direct drive system, a variable speed trigger and high chain speed (0-4,720 FPM) for increased cutting performance. Assembly is easy but I suggest you study the instruction manual and have an assistant help with attaching the chain. Makita supports this product with a 3-year limited warranty.

      This is my first battery powered chainsaw. I wasn't expecting this much speed, power and performance out of it. I was surprised. I have four other chainsaws, but none this small, none battery powered. The top handle design appealed to me, especially since I have a few trees to take down this fall. It's lightweight and easy to handle, making it worth its weight in gold while in a tree trimming limbs.The speed and power means you'll get more done quickly. This will make the limbing so much easier. Just to see what it would do, I cut down and cut up a small cherry and a small pine. I cut the cherry into twelve inch sections and the pine into pieces that made it easy to move and handle. I used a 5ah battery and it is down only one bar. This saw is fast. I never expected it to be this good. No fuel to mix, fuel going bad, carbs to clean and tune, a charged 18v LXT battery is all you need. This is so much easier and quieter than what I was using. And no obnoxious fumes to breath. Great saw Makita.

      Great for light work. It does require bigger batteries. No big deal shop online for them much cheaper.

        Lightweight, does the job
        Very light weight, does the job very well. A one-handed affair, and useful for what I need around the yard. Was at the church recently cutting 4-6 inch logs, trimming trees, stayed with me the whole time, an hour or two. Battery quite sufficient.
