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 40V max XGT® Brushless Cordless 18" Chain Saw. With zero emissions, lower noise, and considerably less maintenance, the GCU06 is a welcome solution for cutting and trimming applications.

It’s powered by one 40V max XGT® battery for maximum power, speed, and run-time. With the efficient Makita® brushless motor, users get high power efficiency that is equivalent to a 42cc gas chain saw. It can deliver up to 40 cuts in 12” diameter cedar with the included 40V max XGT® 5.0Ah battery. The digital communication within XGT® optimizes performance to provide up to 2X longer sustained power under heavy-load applications

It features a variable speed trigger and a high chain speed (0-5,020 FPM) for improved cutting performance and is equipped with Active Feedback-Sensing Technology (AFT®) which electronically turns off the motor if the rotation of the attachment is suddenly forced to stop.

Convenience features include tool-less chain adjustment for convenient operation and maintenance, adjustable automatic chain lubrication with a large oil reservoir, and a large oil filling port with a view window that allows the operator to easily add and check the bar oil level. It also features a rubberized soft grip top handle that is engineered for the user to easily apply more even cutting pressure.

It has a built-in L.E.D. on/off switch with auto power-off function which automatically shuts the saw off when an operation is delayed for extended battery life. Included with the saw itself are an 18" sprocket nose guide bar and 3/8" low profile pitch, .050”-gauge chain. It features Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™) engineered for improved dust and water resistance.

XGT® is a system of equipment, tools, batteries, and chargers utilizing 40v max lithium-ion batteries. XGT® is engineered to deliver high power to take on high-demand applications, allowing users to completely transition to a cordless job site. XGT® is equipped with advanced brushless motor engineering, intelligent digital communication, and superior durability features to outpower, outsmart and outlast the rest.
