Does this take the same batteries as the cordless drill and drivers do?

Asked by Spurg April 28, 2020
5
Answers

Yes*** ***except for non-star batteries. The 1.5ah batteries that came with my Makita drill/driver set do not fit. Make sure the batteries you plan to use have the star symbol. It seems the Makita tools with the yellow connector can use any Makita battery but if it’s a black connector, like this saw, then it has to be a star battery.

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.

(What's this)
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.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
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.

(What's this)
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.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
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.
