Makita 18V LXT® Lithium‑Ion Brushless Cordless 10″ Top Handle Chain Saw Kit (5.0Ah)

There is a 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 LXT® Brushless 10” Top Handle Chain Saw (model XCU06T). With zero emissions, lower noise, and considerably less maintenance the XCU06T is a welcome solution for cutting and trimming applications, and the compact top-handle design makes it ideal for the professional tree care industry.

Powered by one 18V LXT® battery for maximum power, speed, and run-time, the XCU06T uses the strongly preferred 18V battery platform and comes with two 18V LXT® batteries in the kit. And with the efficient Makita outer rotor brushless motor with the direct drive system, users get high power efficiency that is equivalent to a gas chain saw.

The XCU06T has a variable speed trigger and high chain speed (0-4,720 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, and no air filter or muffler to clean. And there’s no need to drain the fuel for storage. Simply load the 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion battery, and the saw is ready to use. Convenience features include adjustable automatic chain lubrication, a built-in lock-off lever to help prevent the chain from accidentally engaging, 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.
