Makita UK has expanded its XGT 40VMax range of garden machinery with the launch of the UA004 Telescopic Pole Saw, UC002, UC003 and UC006 Top-Handle Chainsaws, and UC011, UC014, UC015 and UC016 Rear-Handle Chainsaws.

Thanks to its telescopic, tool-less shaft design, users of the UA004 XGT 40VMax (300mm) Telescopic Pole Saw can seamlessly adjustthe pole length from 2.5m up to 3.8m, allowing optimum reach and efficiency. With 1.5kW of max output power comparable to a 35cc petrol pole saw, the brushless motor can deliver chain speeds of 20 m/s for fast, smooth cutting.

The UC002, UC003, UC006 XGT 40VMax (250/300mm) top-handle chainsaws deliver an impressive 1.4kW of max output with a brushless motor, these cordless chainsaws each enjoy comparable power to a 30cc 2-stroke chainsaw. Professionals can rely on these machines for longer runtimes and efficient working. Weighing only 4.2kg (without batteries), these cordless chainsaws all feature a large oil reservoir with an adjustable chain oiling mechanism, and anti-fall captive bar nuts to minimise loss when adjusting chain tension.

The UC011, UC014, UC015, UC016 XGT 40VMax (300/350/400mm) rear-handle chainsaws tackle any application on the ground. These rear-handled chainsaws, with bar lengths of 300, 350 or 400mm, also benefit from Makita’s 40VMax Li-Ion battery power, generating a max output of 1.6kW – 45% higher compared to the original DUC353 LXT model. Such impressive power provides chain speeds up to 25.5m/s, providing fast and effective cutting, vital for tackling thicker branches.

Featuring a tool-less change and tension adjustment of the saw chain, as well as an adjustable automatic chain lubrication, these cordless machines are a perfect companion for those needing to work on a range of different applications with both speed and efficiency. For optimal handling and leverage, the ergonomic soft grip and metal spike bumper ensure users can maximise their productivity.

Mark Earles (Business Development Manager – OPE) at Makita said: “These latest additions are testament to our continued focus on providing professionals with equipment that improves productivity and efficiency. We are proud to extend our powerful 40VMax XGT portfolio to offer the power comparable to petrol alternatives – with zero emissions.”
