Makita has released the new 18V LXT 6-in. Pruning Saw (XCU14), adding to the expanding line of both XGT and LXT cordless outdoor power equipment. It is an option for light limb cutting and pruning applications.
“The 18 Volt LXT 6-in. Pruning Saw (XCU14) bridges the gap between a traditional manual hand tool like pruners or lopping shears, and something bigger like a top-handle chain saw,” said Tyler Brown, associate product manager for lifestyle and expansion, Makita U.S.A. Inc. “This compact and portable saw combines power and speed with exceptional maneuverability in confined spaces, offering users a versatile tool to get the job done.”
The 6-in. Pruning Saw features a Makita-built brushless motor that delivers cutting performance. It features “tool-free” chain adjustment, as well as a retractable guard for operation and maintenance. The XCU14 can perform up to 140 cuts in 2-in. cedar with one fully charged 18V LXT 2.0Ah battery.
The XCU14 features a soft grip handle that is engineered for the user to apply even cutting pressure. It is lightweight at only 3.7 lbs. with battery.
The new 18V LXT Pruning Saw is part of the LXT System, consisting of cordless tools powered by 18V batteries with 325+ Products in One System. The LXT System includes a range of 18V and 36V mowers, trimmers, blowers, chain saws and more, as well as a range of cordless tools, vacuums, lighting, radios, heated jackets and more – all powered by 18V LXT batteries.
