The Makita XCU04PT1 36V (18V X2) LXT Brushless 16" Chain Saw Kit is a good choice for people who are already familiar with the Makita rechargeable Li-Ion system. It is lightweight compared to some of its industrial peers. The chain adjuster is different from what some customers may be used to, but it works well and doesn't require an extra tool to adjust the chain. The batteries take a while to charge, but the charger is efficient and has a built-in fan to cool the batteries. The saw comes with a USB-A port on the charger, which can be useful for charging other devices. Customers have noted that the saw is powerful and efficient, with a roller tip bar that reduces friction and allows for more power to be used for cutting wood. Overall, the Makita XCU04PT1 is a reliable and efficient chainsaw that is suitable for a variety of tasks.
