Makita GCU05M1 40V max XGT Brushless Lithium-Ion 16 in. Cordless Chain Saw Kit (4.0Ah)


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 16 in. Chain Saw (GCU05M1). With zero emissions, lower noise, and considerably less maintenance, the GCU05M1 is a welcome solution for cutting and trimming applications. It’s powered by one 40V XGT 5 Ah Battery for power and long run time, and with the efficient Makita-built brushless motor users get high power efficiency that is equivalent to a 42cc gas chain saw. The GCU05M1 has a 16 in. Guide bar and Makita-built motor with a variable-speed trigger that delivers 0 - 5020 FPM for increased cutting speed. It has zero emissions and reduced maintenance: there's no engine oil to change, no spark plug to replace, and no air filter or muffler to clean. And there's no need to drain the fuel for storage. Convenience features include lateral chain tensioning with dual stud for efficient chain retention, captured bar nuts, adjustable automatic chain lubrication with large oil reservoir, and a built-in L.E.D. on/off switch with auto power-off function which automatically shuts the saw off when operation is delayed for extended battery life. XGT is a system of equipment, tools, batteries, and chargers utilizing 40V MAX Lithium-Ion batteries. XGT is engineered to deliver high power to take on high-demand applications, allowing users to completely transition to a cordless job site. XGT is equipped with advanced brushless motor engineering, intelligent digital communication, and superior durability features to outpower, outsmart and outlast the rest.

Makita Standard Warranty

The Makita Standard Warranty applies to both new and factory-reconditioned Makita tools. Every Makita tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. If you are not satisfied with any Makita tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide a replacement or refund. Each Makita tool is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of ONE YEAR from the date of original purchase. Should any trouble develop during this one-year period, return the COMPLETE tool, freight prepaid, to one of Makita's Factory or Authorized Service Centers.

Each NEW Makita Lithium‐Ion Power Tool, Battery and Charger is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of THREE YEARS from the date of original purchase

If inspection shows the trouble is caused by defective workmanship or material, Makita will repair (or at its option, replace without charge).

This Warranty does not apply where:
  • Repairs have been made or attempted by others
  • Repairs are required because of normal wear and tear
  • The tool has been abused, misused or improperly maintained
  • Alterations have been made to the tool
In no event shall Makita be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages from the sale or use of the product. This disclaimer applies to both during and after the term of this warranty. Makita disclaims liability for any implied warranties, including implied warranties of "merchantability" and "fitness" for a specific purpose, after the one-year term of this warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
