MAKITA LAUNCHES TWO NEW POLE SAWS WITH EQUIVALENT POWER TO 30CC GAS POLE SAWS

The 36V (18V X2) LXT Brushless 10" Pole Saws offer faster cutting speeds to handle commercial-duty applications.

The 36V (18V X2) LXT® Brushless 10” Pole Saws (XAU01 and XAU02) offer faster cutting speeds and power equivalent to 30cc gas pole saws to handle commercial-duty applications.

March 16, 2021, La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc., the innovation leader in cordless outdoor power equipment and power tools, has announced two new cordless pole saws with power equivalent to 30cc gas pole saws. The 36V (18V X2) LXT® Brushless Cordless 10” Pole Saw (XAU01) and Telescoping Pole Saw (XAU02) offer faster cutting speed, without the hassles of gas.
 
Speed and Run Time
Both pole saws get up to 140 cuts in 4x4 cedar with two LXT 5.0Ah Batteries. They have a 20% faster cutting speed than a 31.4cc gas engine pole saw. Torque boost mode helps power through thick or hard branches.
 
Design
The XAU01 has a fixed shaft that is 8-feet in length, ideal for pruning branches. The XAU02 has a telescoping shaft that adjusts in length from 9-feet to 13-feet. This provides access to hard-to-reach branches.
 
Features
Other features include a branch hook to pull trimmed branches from trees, lateral chain tensioning with single stud for efficient chain retention, captured bar nut, soft front grip, and a translucent bar oil tank with large opening for easy refilling.  
 
Technology
Both poles saws have Extreme Protection Technology (XPT). XPT is a protective seal inside the tool, engineered for improved operation in harsh conditions by channeling water and dust from key internal components.
18V LXT® System
The LXT System, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries, takes a user from power tools to outdoor power equipment to get the job done. Makita® 18V LXT Batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.  
 
Benefits of Cordless Outdoor Power Equipment
Makita LXT Cordless Power Equipment eliminates the hassles of gas with zero emissions, lower noise, and reduced maintenance. The pole saws operate at a lower noise level, providing user comfort and preventing a disruption for neighbors or nearby businesses. With no need for gas or oil, the pole saws require reduced maintenance and have zero emissions.
