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 18V LXT® Brushless Chain Saw Kit (model XCU11SM1). With zero emissions, lower noise, and considerably less maintenance, the XCU11 is a welcome solution for cutting and trimming applications. It’s powered by one 18V LXT® battery, the same fast-charging battery that powers the full range of products in the expanding LXT® System. The efficient Makita brushless motor allows users to get high power efficiency that is equivalent to a gas chain saw, performing up to 73 cuts in 4×4 cedar with one 18V LXT® 4.0Ah battery. The XCU11 has a 14” guide bar and the Makita-built motor with variable speed delivers 0- 1,520 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 an 18V LXT® battery, and the saw is ready to use. Convenience features include “tool-less” chain adjustments, a front hand guard engineered to actuate chain brake when engaged, an electric brake for maximum productivity, and more. Convenience features include a large oil filling port with a viewing window that allows the operator to easily add and check the bar oil level, a rubberized soft grip top handle that is engineered for the user to more easily apply even cutting pressure, and a compact body with rear handle design for easy maneuverability. 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.
