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 Top Handle Chain Saw, Tool Only (model XCU08Z). With zero emissions, lower noise and considerably less maintenance than gas-powered chain saws, the XCU08Z 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 (sold separately) for maximum power, speed and run-time, the XCU08Z is easy to start by simply loading the 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Batteries and powering on. The XCU08Z has a variable speed trigger and high chain speed (0-3,940 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.

Q:What are the advantages of a top handel chain saw?
by|Apr 7, 2023
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  You can operate the saw one handed with ease

by|Apr 8, 2023

    A:  Thank you for your question on the XCU08Z top handle chain saw. The primary difference between a top-handle chainsaw and other saws is the movement of the rear handle to the top of the chainsaw, which allows operation with one hand when needed.

      A:  Thank you for your question. Model XCU08Z is a 36v tool. By it's 36v nature, it can provide more power than a 18v chainsaw. The run time is determined by the amp hour rating on the batter. For more information, you can call Makita at 1-800-462-5482, option 3, Mon -Fri 8 am to 7:45 pm.

              The close together position of the handles decreases your control of the saw. The chain has a tendency to derail and when it does the drive teeth are mushroomed requiring grinding the drive teeth down to their original thickness with a Dremmel tool before they will again slide freely in the bar groove.

              Plenty of power & good ergonomics. It does how thru batteries a little quicker than I hope so keep a spare pair ready if you are doing an extended job.

                    Saw works great for trimming limbs and cutting small logs to length. I'm using 6Ah batteries and I have plenty of run time for the jobs I am doing. I previously purchased the single-battery version of this saw and returned it - am much happier with the 36V version. My only complaint is that the chain must be frequently tightened. If it slips off, it can get nicked and no longer travels freely in the bar. Highly recommend the saw.
