    XCU02Z 18V X2 (36V) LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 12" Chain Saw

    Found this great little limbing and light bucking saw on OfferUp for $40 lightly used. It's more capable than its size portrays. It's my go-to saw now for camping (it's pretty quiet). A pair of 5.0Ah Batteries last a good while, more than enough to get firewood cut for the duration of the stay.

    That’s great to know! We have Makita cordless kits at work and they are great!

    I just got the Makita 36volt with a 16” bar and I love it. I cut a bunch of small trees and brush and it was awesome. It’s comparable to a 32cc gas saw.

    Still loving this Makita cordless chainsaw. It's seriously good quality. Just keep that chain sharp! I've git four 5.0ah batteries with me every time I use it, so it's very unlikely I will exhaust my batteries. Stihl 2stroke + Motomix can for backup.
