Landscapers and contractors are demanding more cordless alternatives to corded and gas-powered outdoor power equipment. Makita is meeting the demand with an expanding line of cordless OPE, including the 18-Volt X 2 LXT (36-Volt) Brushless Chain Saw. With zero emissions, lower noise, and considerably less maintenance, the DUC400PT2 is a welcome solution for cutting and trimming applications. It's powered by two 18-Volt LXT batteries for 36-Volt power and run time, but without leaving the strongly-preferred 18-Volt battery platform. And with the efficient Makita outer rotor brushless motor with direct drive system, users get high power efficiency that is equivalent to a gas chain saw. The DUC400PT2 has a 16 inch guide bar, and the Makita-built motor with variable speed delivers 0-3,940 FPM for increased cutting speed but with less noise (only 100dB(A)).
