Among the growing number of tool-reviewing blog sites, ToolsInAction.com stands out with coverage of a wide range of tools for the pro -- including outdoor power equipment. Recently, Tools In Action tried out the Makita 18V X2 LXT Lithium-Ion (36V) Cordless Chain Saw, model HCU02ZX2. The HCU02ZX2 is powered by two 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion batteries for 36V power and run time. With a 12" guide bar and chain speed of 1,650 feet per minute (FPM), the new HCU02ZX2 Chain Saw is engineered for demanding cutting applications, but without the noise, emissions, and maintenance of a gas powered model.
Tools In Action tried out the HCU02ZX2, and also had an arborist at Bode Tree Care in Barrington, IL, run the saw. And it was thumbs-up across the board, with the closing comment: "I think Makita hit a home run with this saw."
