About This Product

There is growing demand for cordless alternatives to gas-powered outdoor power equipment. Makita is meeting demand with an expanding line of cordless OPE, including the 18V X2 LXT (36V) Cordless 14 In. Top Handle Chain Saw Kit (model XCU08PT). With zero emissions, lower noise and considerably less maintenance than gas-powered chain saws, the XCU08PT is a welcome solution for cutting and trimming applications. The compact top-handle design makes it ideal for the professional tree care industry. Powered by two 18V LXT batteries for maximum power, speed and run-time, the XCU08PT is easy to start by simply loading the 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Batteries and powering on. The XCU08PT 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, no air filter or muffler to clean and there's no need to drain the fuel for storage. With the Makita Outer Rotor Brushless Motor with direct-drive system, users get high power efficiency. Other convenience features include adjustable automatic chain lubrication, built-on lock-off lever to help prevent the chain from accidentally engaging, an electric brake for maximum productivity and more.

      A:  It all depends on the size of the wood. I was able to cut 3 mid size trees and still had power. If you are using this for small jobs it's perfect!

            I purchased this to use for some light tree work on property we bought as well as on overlanding trails blocked with trees. I have used it a few times and pleased with its performance and the run time on 2- 5ah batteries.

            Very impressive battery saw.
            Awesome little saw. Plenty of power and high chain speed makes for a clean smooth cut. The battery life was better than I expected for single jobs or trail clearing. It is designed and functions like a proper top handle chainsaw unlike some of the goofy designs of other brands.

            Works well for lightweight to medium pruning. It does perform equally to my Husqvarna 338T or Echo CS-355T for topping larger trees.

            Awesome instrument of chaos
            Must say I’m thoroughly impressed with this tool. The future is in electric and I’m a makita guy so seeing this on Black Friday sale tickled me pink , and they threw in extra 5.0 batteries , say less!! One downside which kind of got me stirred up is that the stock chain that came with the tool was complete sh*t, got dull quick . A replacement chain isn’t available in Home Depot and I needed it today so I bought an off brand that works waaaay better (16in powercare Y56 .043 3/8 ) get it

              Good for occasional use
              The good: It's marketed as having the power of a 30cc saw and I believe that is correct. The saw runs quieter than a gas powered saw. Don't have to pull a rope start. The bad: The saw actually weighs more than a pro grade top handle gas saw. I get less than 10 minutes of actual cutting time on a set of batteries, and it takes 40 min. to charge them up. It costs as much as a pro top handle gas saw. Extra batteries cost a lot. Verdict: Gasoline saws are still a better value.
