The Makita DUC305 is a traditional rear handle chainsaw with a 30cm bar and is powered by 2 x 18v batteries linked in series to run a powerful 36v Brushless DC motor which is around 30% more efficient than its brushed counterparts and provides longer run time and is virtually maintenance free.
The DUC305 has a variable speed trigger with a chain speed of 0-20m/s which is almost identical to a petrol chainsaw and constant speed control monitors the load and increases the power to keep the chain speed constant. Safety features include a kickback brake, auto power off which prevents unintentional start up, a battery protection circuit plus a metal spike bumper ensures a firm grip. This unit has a 30cm bar and is supplied with a 3/8" low kickback Oregon chain and chain tensioning is manual using a slotted screwdriver on the sprocket cover.
Other features include a soft grip handle, adjustable automatic chain lubrication with an oil capacity display and captive nuts on the sprocket cover. This unit is compatible with all Makita LXT 18v Li-Ion batteries including mixed Ah combinations but please note the chainsaw will only operate while both batteries have charge.
PLEASE NOTE: If you select a 'Body Only' tool, it does not come with batteries, charger or a case.
