Makita GCU06T1

Makita adds new XGT cordless tools and equipment

Makita continues its expansion of the 40V and 80V max XGT System with the announcement of new products including a new lawn mower and brushless chainsaws. XGT gives users one system, from core handheld tools like drills and impact drivers to equipment-grad products including high-capacity saws, rotary hammers ad power cutters.

40V max XGT Brushless Chainsaws (GCU04, GCU05, GCU06)

All three models feature a Makita-built brushless motor that delivers the power of a 42cc gas model, with chain speeds at 5,020 FPM. The GCU04 and GCU06 feature an 18” bar while the GCU05 features a 16’ bar. They also have long run time: Models GCU04 and GCU06 deliver up to 40 cuts in 12” cedar on a single charge of a 40V max 5.0Ah battery.

40V max XGT Brushless 21″ Self-Propelled Commercial Lawn Mower (GML01)

Makita GML01Z

The high torque Makita-built brushless motor delivers gas performance for efficient grass cutting, but with lower noise, less maintenance and zero emissions. The battery bay holds two 40V max batteries, and automatically switches to the second battery when the first is depleted. This provides extended run time: It can cut up to 1-1/5 acre on a single charge when running two 40V XGT 8.0Ah batteries.
