Makita XGT 40V 9′ to 13′ Telescoping Pole Saw, 10″ Bar

Makita XGT 40V 9′ to 13′ Telescoping Pole Saw, 10″ Bar

The 40V max XGT® Brushless 10″ Telescoping Pole Saw easily adjusts from 9-ft. to 13-ft. in length to allow the user to reach higher and trim branches with ease. The Makita-built brushless motor delivers the power of a 35cc gas pole saw to the 10″ bar and chain. The 40V max XGT® delivers up to 150 cuts in 4×4 cedar on a single charge of an XGT® 4.0Ah battery, allowing the user to cut and trim for longer periods of time.

The Pole Saw has convenience features that include a lateral chain tensioner with a single stud for efficient chain retention and a captured bar nut that is retained in the sprocket cover for easier setup and maintenance. There is also a translucent bar oil tank with a large opening that aids in adding oil and keeping the bar properly lubricated.

XGT® is a system of equipment, tools, batteries, and chargers utilizing 40v max lithium-ion batteries. XGT® is engineered to deliver high power to take on high-demand applications, allowing users to completely transition to a cordless job site. XGT is equipped with advanced brushless motor engineering, intelligent digital communication, and superior durability features to outpower, outsmart and outlast the rest.
