POPULAR MECHANICS LIKES THE POWER, PERFORMANCE & COMPACT SIZE OF MAKITA 18V X2 CHAIN SAW

New HCU02ZX2 chain saw is powered by two 18V Lithium-Ion batteries for 36V power and run-time

A writer at Popular Mechanics magazine was facing four piles of tree and branch debris, so he picked up the new Makita 18V X2 LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless 12" Chain Saw (HCU02ZX2). Powered by two fully-charged 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion batteries, he was able to work steadily for a full 90 minutes. The result: one big mess was reduced to small stacks of logs and branches, "ready to be bundled." 

Popular Mechanics liked combination of power, less noise, and ease of use -- all with convenience of cordless.

The PM writer liked the combination of power, less noise, and ease of use -- all with convenience of cordless. The HCU02ZX2 is powered by two 18V LXT Lithium-Ion batteries for 36V power and run time, without leaving the 18V platform. The cordless saw produces less noise than gas-powered chain saws, yet it delivers plenty of chain speed (up to 1,650 FPM). The writer also remarked on the low weight, as well as the "tool-less" chain-tensioning device that provides maximum convenience. Go here to read the entire review.
