Makita XCU04Z 18V X2 (36V) LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless 16 in. Chainsaw, (Tool Only)

Details
Landscapers and contractors are demanding more cordless alternatives to corded and gas-powered outdoor power equipment. Makita is meeting demand with an expanding line of cordless OPE, including the 18V X2 LXT (36V) Brushless 18 in. Chain Saw (tool only). With zero emissions, lower noise, and considerably less maintenance, the Brushless Cordless 16 in. Chain Saw is a welcome solution for cutting and trimming applications. It’s powered by two 18V LXT batteries (sold separately) for maximum power, speed and run-time, but without leaving the strongly-preferred 18V battery platform. And with the efficient Makita outer rotor brushless motor with direct drive system, users get high power efficiency that is equivalent to a gas chain saw.
The Brushless Cordless 16 in. Chain Saw has a 16 in. guide bar and the Makita-built Outer Rotor BL Brushless Motor direct drive system motor with variable speed delivers 0-3,940 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. Simply pick it up, load two 18V LXT Lithium-Ion batteries, and the saw is ready to use. Convenience features include a "tool-less" chain adjustments, a front hand guard engineered to actuate chain brake when engaged, an electric brake for maximum productivity, and more.
It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion system, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries. Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger. For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created Star Protection Computer Controls. Star Protection is communication technology that allows the Star Protection-equipped tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita 18V LXT and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.

Awesome cordless chainsaw!
I've been waiting for a good deal on one of these. This is the best price I've seen on a 16" Makita. I didn't need any batteries or a charger, so I just bought the tool. It cuts with ease as the chain is very sharp! Also, it is very lightweight, so I'd imagine I'll be using it a lot on my 10 wooded acres.

Great tool for any rural home owner to use on small projects.
I am in my mid 70's, live on one acre in a rural area with several trees and love small outdoor projects. Put the tool to work right away and was very pleased with how powerful and how well it cuts as a light weight tool. It's so nice not to worry about fuel engines starting. I just keep the batteries charged for the next project. Chain adjustments are simple and easy plus great safety features.
