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. This promotional sku also includes and comes with a bonus BL1850B-2 18V LXT Lithium-Ion 5.0Ah Battery, 2/pk.

    Answer This Question

    A:  the best I saw was $400 for this plus 2 free tools. I think the hammer drill was replaced on newer model with a more compact one with a shorter handle that fits into the bag. The new driver with more torque and features too.

      A:  These are good batteries and quality tools. I don't know what the asking price is.

          Q:How long do these batteries last before having to replace. I can't tell if my trimmer is dying or the batteries are no good anymore. The trimmer will randomly drop speed and pick back up speed. Never used to do this.

            A:  Thank you for your question. There are many variables to consider when putting a precise number of years of use on our batteries like proper storage, elements, proper handling, and usage. Please follow the owner’s manual and we expect you to get several years of usage. Batteries are warranted for up to 3 years from the date of purchase and the tool as well. If the battery fails within that timeline, we will simply replace it as we do not repair batteries. We recommend you contact your local Service Center. You can find the local Factory Authorized Service Center by calling 1-(800)4-MAKITA, or at the “Service Center” link at www.makitatools.com.

                Great Batteries that Last a Long Time
                I am impressed with how long these 5ah batteries last. If you only have these two you will be able to charge one full before the other ones needs charging.

                  Got these on clearance. Perfect size and run time. They are the same size as the 3.0Ah ones but with a longer run time. Note: They will not work with older Makita tools that don't have the star on the battery receiver or yellow receiver and don't support the safety features of the newer batteries. Check the notches. Will not work with the bigger notch.

                  I had the 2.0ah that came with the drill which did great. But these are amazing. I have yet to have a project that I have ran these 5ah to even half. I wish I would have bought them a long time ago. I love the push bottom power indicator. The 5ah are only 1/2 longer than the 2ah batteries and the weight difference is minimal.

                  Battery worked well for me, I used this for my x2 tracksaw. Not enough to drain the battery so I can not attest to how long they will last for. Also with the rapid charger they charge in 45minutes which is greater

                  I needed to buy new batteries to complete a deck project after my last original 3.0Ah battery died (after 12-13 years), and swapping around the one 4.0Ah battery I had really slowed things down ("Are you done with the battery yet? OK. Throw it over to me.") The fuel gauge is pretty nice after all the years of not knowing how close you were to a dead battery. And the capacity is pretty amazing. I used the packs for hours of screwing or drilling into pressure-treated lumber, and rarely got to half power. The only thing that challenged the batteries was the circular saw; cutting through a very wet, pressure-treated 2x12, cutting stair stringers. 12 feet took 3 batteries (almost with 2).

                  Long lasting battery. Used it to power a random orbital sander for 30 minutes, almost continuously. Still had 2 bars. Plugged it in the reciprocating saw to remove a door. Still showed 2 bars. They also last a while on the circular saw. With (2) 3Ah, (1) 4Ah, (2) 5Ah batteries & two chargers, I have enough batteries for all day, powering drill, impact driver, recip saw, circular saw, RO sander, and grinder. The battery level indicator is handy, but Makita should put them on the same side as the release button. As it is, when you plug the battery in, you can't check the battery level without first removing it.
