About This Product

Landscapers and contractors are demanding more cordless alternatives to gas-powered outdoor power equipment. Makita is meeting demand with an expanding line of cordless OPE including the 40V max XGT Brushless Cordless 18" Chain Saw. With zero emissions, lower noise, and considerably less maintenance, the GCU06 is a welcome solution for cutting and trimming applications.It's powered by one 40V max XGT battery for maximum power, speed, and run-time. With the efficient Makita brushless motor, users get high power efficiency that is equivalent to a 42cc gas chain saw. It can deliver up to 40 cuts in 12" diameter cedar with the included 40V max XGT 5.0Ah battery. The digital communication within XGT optimizes performance to provide up to 2X longer sustained power under heavy-load applicationsIt features a variable speed trigger and a high chain speed (0-5,020 FPM) for improved cutting performance and is equipped with Active Feedback-Sensing Technology (AFT) which electronically turns off the motor if the rotation of the attachment is suddenly forced to stop.Convenience features include tool-less chain adjustment for convenient operation and maintenance, adjustable automatic chain lubrication with a large oil reservoir, and a large oil filling port with a view window that allows the operator to easily add and check the bar oil level. It also features a rubberized soft grip top handle that is engineered for the user to easily apply more even cutting pressure.

          I love the fact this battery operated saw is even an option. As a smaller wooded lot land owner, there is often need after storms or even just regular upkeep & maintenance with my trees, driveway and trails. This very portable option of a chainsaw is a great thing and not having to tote around cans of gas and dealing with either leaking or water getting into the fuel is a good thing. I do wish my Makita saw had a case for it. Perhaps there is one available for it but it wasn't apparent when I came across this sweet Makita at Home Depot. Owning other great, dependable Makita battery operated helped my decision process, but the larger batteries the chainsaw requires means the owner needs to make a bigger investment in those batteries. At the time I bought it, I was only looking for replacement batteries for my older Makita power tools but after seeing the great "buy this & get this free" deals at home Depot, I jumped right in to larger battery operated chainsaw. The deals were just too great to pass up. The chainsaw is a great beefy addition to my maintenance shed and array of well used tools. Highly recommend it for it's portability as well as it's capability to handle tree cutting right down to trimming. This 18" brushless motor beast is more than enough for my and likely most homeowners needs. The 40 max 4.0Ah battery and 5.0Ah battery along with the rapid charger easily keep things moving along without delay. Highly recommended!

          Used it 1 time so far but the cutting experience seemed the same as my similar sized gas chainsaw. My one concern is the plastic knob that you have to spin to open the cover to get at the chain. If feel like I'm going to need to be careful with it or I will break it.

            Ever wonder why Home Depot only rents out Makita?
            Much higher quality build than Dewalt or Milwaukee but at a higher cost. You do get what you pay for. Milwaukee and Dewalt may be just slightly more powerful but in my opinion that's like comparing a Porsche to a Dodge Demon. I like my power tools to be reliable and feel expensive. Red and Yellow feel like cheap plastic even the way the batteries slide in Makita just ooze quality.

              Very Disappointed. Have 16 in. Milwaukee and DEWALT saws. Both are more powerful than this one. It constantly stalls. The tension adjustment is poor. Did not get the free battery either.
