I've got the 12" 36v, and it has a retractable metal d-ring that's at the back of the saw. Must be what it's for

Re: Leaf Blower


I dug out the manual and they do call it:

"Carabiner (rope attachment point) is for use of tool hanging. Before using carabiner, pull it out and tie it with a rope".


Mine is the XCU02.
Not 100% certain, but I think I saw somewhere they were changing the design to more match the profile of gas 12" saw.

For which an electric leaf blower will do even after a year of storage Gas is a maybe if it was stored incorrectly.

The electric leaf blowers of today also have every bit as much power as a small hand held gas leaf blower.

Remember when we used corded saws, and corded drills? Times have changed...

Re: Leaf Blower


Never paid attention to it before, but the ring is just that.
When not in use it is halfway in.
When you need it, pull it and comes out enough to clip a rope on it.
Saw will definitely hang pointed down with the rope on it. The ring is all the way in the back next to the batteries.


The new version is the XCU0"3".

Got the Makita today and it works great.
No more noise or gas fumes.
