The Makita 18V X2 (36V) LXT Brushless 14" Chainsaw Delivers Improved Cutting Performance
Makita is meeting the demands of landscapers and contractors and expanding their line of cordless outdoor power equipment with this XCU03Z 18V X2 (36V) LXT Brushless 14" Chain Saw. Leave behind the hassle of a gas-powered chainsaw for a cordless, battery powered solution. Get the same power of gas to tackle any cutting and trimming application with the benefits of zero emissions, lower noise, and considerably less maintenance on your tool. This chainsaw is powered by two 18V LXT Lithium-Ion batteries (not included) for 36V power and run time, without leaving the strongly-preferred 18V LXT battery platform. Thanks to the efficient Makita outer rotor brushless motor with direct drive system, you can get high power efficiency that is equivalent to a gas chainsaw. The XCU03Z has a 14" guide bar and the Makita-built motor with variable speed delivers 0-3,940 FPM for increased cutting speed, but with less noise (only 100dB(A)). 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. Convenient features include a "tool-less" chain adjustment, a front hand guard engineered to actuate chain brake when engaged, an electric brake for maximum productivity, and more.
The XCU03Z 18V X2 (36V) LXT Brushless 14" Chain Saw features Makita XPT Extreme Protection Technology for your chainsaw. Engineered for improved operation in harsh conditions, a protective seal is added inside the tool to repel water and dust away from key internal components. It is also IPX4-rated for weather resistant construction and durability so you can work in any conditions. The 18V Lithium-Ion system is the world's largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries. Makita 18V batteries have the fastest charge time 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.
Power and Speed
The Makita-built Outer Rotor BL Brushless Motor direct-drive system provides high power efficiency comparable to that of a gas chainsaw. The variable speed trigger and high chain speed of up to 3,940 FPM are designed for improved cutting performance and efficiency.
Design and Innovation
The XCU03Z Chain Saw features a compact rear handle design that gives improved performance and comfort. Another convenience features is the "tool-less" chain adjustment for easy operation and maintenance of your chainsaw.
LXT Lithium-Ion Battery Platform
The Makita LXT Lithium-Ion battery delivers constant power and longer run time, even in extreme temperatures. The charger communicates with the battery's built-in chip to optimize battery life, controlling current, voltage, and temperature. A built-in fan circulates air through the battery during the charging process to cool the battery for faster charge time.
