Works great, light weight and easy to handle. This is probably because the motor gets too hot. It also cuts some surprisingly large size logs. I've included photos of what I took down. Time to sharpen it or buy a new chain.

The Makita XCU02PT1 was definitely our favorite Makita Saws. That being said, there are a number of other really great options when it comes to Makita Saws. We have the best of them in this article.

Makita is another top manufacturer of Saws. They make the tool next up on our lineup. Makita's Chainsaws are great as well. It was terrific to test the XCU03PT1. I was very happy using this tool!

This Chainsaw is only $374.99. That is a terrific deal for a high quality Saw like the XCU03PT1 by Makita. The Makita XCU03PT1 is really a sound option. Of you are not sure about our top selection, I'd suggest you choose this Saw.

Apart from the tools we already covered, I would check out the UC4051A by Makita and the 2705X1 by Makita. Both Makita and Makita are considered a couple of the leading manufacturers of premium Saws. Both tools are highly rated also. Real customers gave the Makita an average rating of 4.5/5 stars. You can liken that to the Makita 2705X1 which holds an average rating of 4.1/5 stars.

The UC4051A by Makita comes with several features you might not find on competing Chainsaws. For example "Tool-less" blade and chain adjustments for convenient operation and easy maintenance. The Makita 2705X1 although, is very competitive offering Item may ship in more than one box and may arrive separately plus Powerful 15.0 AMP motor delivers 4,800 RPM.

I would be eager to suggest both of these Makita Saws

It cut through like a knife through warm butter. The clutch mechanism makes it incredibly safe. I am blown away on the performance of this saw. This is our fourth Makita. I can start easily and I'm very happy so far.

Had a 15% off sale on Makita so I got this thing. It's durable plastic, but still plastic. Has always been square to the blade. Packaging was immaculate and intelligently designed. The stand is sturdy and folds easily.

Puts just the right amount of oil on the bar. The chain itself was beginning to wear a bit. Would not be good for cutting cord wood. I used the battery from my Makita weedeater. Oiling, on the other hand, is kind of weird.

Smaller trees and branches that need pruned. But in fairness, there is no other choice. We needed to clear out trees and bush. There are some important limitations. I do have a couple suggestions though.

A simple procedure covered in the manual. But in fairness, there is no other choice. It joins its twin keeping our house warm. This is a well-built Heavy Duty corded chainsaw. I press the button, pull the trigger and it goes.

5 amp battery died and a new replacement 2. When used correctly, it seems pretty unstoppable. This is when I realized I had messed up. Lasts 3 - 4 hrs and have used it 5 times so far. It starts after a pull or two every time.
