Makita’s XCU03Z 18V X2 LXT® (36V) Cordless/Brushless Chainsaw (tool only) gives you the convenience of an electric chain saw without the cumbersome cord. Enjoy zero emissions, low noise, and considerably less maintenance while cutting and trimming trees and brush. The chain saw is powered by two 18V LXT® batteries (sold separately) for 36V power and run time, but without leaving the 18V battery platform. And with Makita’s brushless motor with direct drive, users get high power efficiency that is equivalent to a gas chain saw. The XCU03Z has a 14'' guide bar and a Makita-built motor with variable speed from 0 to 3,940 FPM and very little noise (only 100dB(A)). It has zero emissions and reduced maintenance: 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 (sold separately), and the saw is ready to use. Convenience features include ''tool-free'' chain adjustments, a front hand guard engineered to actuate the chain brake when engaged, an electric brake for maximum productivity, and more. Star Protection technology lets equipped tools and batteries monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating. Compatible with Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside (batteries and charger sold separately).

I have several Makita 36volt and love everyone of them. 67 years old and tired of try to start my big gas saw just to cut a limb.
