Unboxing and putting together and testing the Makita XCU03PTX1 18V X2 (36V) LXT 5.0 Ah Cordless Lithium-Ion Chain Saw Kit & Angle Grinder Combo Kit

Purchase Link:

Makita-built Outer Rotor BL Brushless Motor direct-drive system provides high power efficiency equivalent to gas chain saw
Variable speed trigger and high chain speed (0-3,940 FPM) for improved cutting performance

This product was sent to me to do and honest review. That’s exactly what I do. I have not been paid in anyway.


Chase says:

Chain looks too loose

John Bailey says:

I have the makita saw its ok for small stuff.

stefantrethan says:

Even if you are just cutting toothpicks, please tighten that chain!
if you pull it away at the bottom (with the battery removed!) and let go it should just about return snug against the bar.

Can’t go wrong with makita and Milwaukee

Daniel f says:

mowerking ED mowing and vacuum cleaners says:

DarkshadowESE says:

The line spool sucks it moves when trying to cut the line I would not recommend.

Lawn Commander says:

Good looking stuff

Would you sharpen blades with this grinder? If so, would you post another video of that? 🙂 A saw and grinder, are kind of like a drill motor…tools nearly any swinging dick needs in the box, and can benefit from. Got a ton of nut, cherry, and sourwood trees here in the south, that the silkworms took out last year. If she’ll cut lumber, she’ll go thru the little trees just fine. Another great video, grind that trailer… 🙂

Chase says:

I’m not a fan of that grinder guard covering half of the bottom of the wheel seems like it would get in the way. Chainsaw dosent seem to be built sturdy but of course that’s just from what I can see and I haven’t used it. You don’t need ear protection for a battery operated chainsaw, but you may have sensitive ears.

24revealer says:

I lent my electric chainsaw to my mom and sister. They apparently poured gasoline into the place where the oil should go and it ran out. Can’t lend your tools to anyone…

RMH & Son Landscaping says:

For me that does not look efficient because every time u stop it u have to turn it on mine is a safety and then run and it is a battry

A Rural Vermonter - Qqjmcb 182 says:

sweet. I’m becoming more and more of a fan of battery equipment. Just a couple of years ago they were awful, not anymore though!

Chase says:

Hey spencer just a quick tip for when you don’t have your tool for changing the grinder wheel, if you just tighten the nut that holds the disc in place with your fingers, you can grab the grinding, or cutting whee and turn it with you hand, my ryobi and dewalt do that I figured your would, also I’m sure you know but on the chainsaw don’t tighten the chain too tight.

hunter colyer says:

Did u guys get snow last night then it melted today?

William B says:

You buy it or did they send it to you?

R&R Out Door Services Of Michigan says:

First. Do you plan on getting a new truck this year?

Lavallee Turf Care says:

Nice. I’m always a bit skeptical of battery powered tools like chainsaws, trimmers..etc

J's Crazy Cutz, LLC says:

I would love that combo.

Ob Fuscated says:

Get some 80-grit flap discs and that grinder will be awesome for sharpening mower blades. I haven’t used my bench grinder(s) in a couple of years. You’ll like flap discs bettern than those cheap “rocks” since flap discs polish as they cut and don’t gouge the surface. A pack of cutting discs make them a great weapon for removing rusty hardware.

tom519az says:

Get the sanding wheel for the trailer work the grinding wheel is over kill and a PIA..

Rufus LC says:

You might want to buy a respirator for use with that grinder because all of the metal dust and rusty crap gets in your lungs and it is toxic!
