The Makita DUC302Z cord­less 18 V twin bat­tery chain­saw has a cut­ting ca­pac­ity of 300 mm in length and is suit­able for trim­ming branches and prun­ing. Fit­ted with an elec­tric brake for safety, a bat­tery-ca­pac­ity warn­ing lamp and tool-less saw chain/ten­sion ad­just­ment for sim­pli­fied main­te­nance, this is a great ad­di­tion to any tool shed. The DUC302Z is suit­able for home­own­ers and pro­fes­sional users, and this model is com­pat­i­ble with both the 5,0 Ah (45-minute charge time) and 3,0 Ah (22-minute charge time) 18 V lithium-ion bat­ter­ies. The lat­ter are recharge­able and eco-friendly, and pro­vide a longer run time. Bat­ter­ies and charger are sold sep­a­rately.

Go­ing cord­less with a chain­saw is not only en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly but also very user friendly. The noise level is also sub­stan­tially lower than a petrol model, mak­ing the DUC302Z ideal for use in built-up ar­eas.
