The Makita DUC256PT2 battery top handled chainsaw kit includes 2x 5Ah 18V LXT batteries and a DC18RD twin fast charger. Supplied with a 25cm bar and chain suitable for super quick branch and trunk cutting, making it ideal for professional arborists operating in the landscape environment. With a highly efficient 36v brushless motor that is powered by 2 x 18V LXT batteries that can offer around 500 cuts in 50mm cedar wood with 5Ah batteries, this chainsaw is a real petrol alternative. Features include a variable speed trigger with a maximum chain speed of 20m/s, LED battery capacity lights and a torque boost mode that provides extra power when cutting thick or hard branches.

The DUC256Z is well balanced, lightweight and comes with a hanging D ring that is suitable for rope attachment when working at height and is fitted with a chain brake that stops chain movement almost instantly when operated.
