owners’ reviews

Denis, 56 years old, Kiev region:

“For the price that the manufacturer asks for this model, I think it is a great electric saw. I do not know and have not met any better analogues yet. The power is 2 kW, which in itself speaks in favor of this tool.

Of the pluses that particularly won me over after I started using it: the absence of strong noise when working, while chainsaws make a wild noise, and the impact on the owner’s hearing is noticeably more harmful.

Japanese Makita quality

For almost a century, the Japanese company Makita has proven itself in the global market. Electric tools, generators and garden equipment of this manufacturer are popular among professionals and amateurs who prefer reliability, high efficiency and maximum comfort in work.

Developed by the influx of Chinese goods of dubious quality in the 1990s, many are still cautiously curious about the country of manufacture of this or that Makita power tool model and, upon hearing the word “China”, go home in the hope of finding something similar with the label “made in…” somewhere else. And in vain. The fact is that Makita factories are now scattered around the world in Japan, Germany, Romania, Austria, the United Kingdom, America, Brazil and China. Production is distributed in such a way that certain models are produced only at certain plants. China now has established production of cordless drills, screwdrivers, angle grinders, other grinders, certain models of reciprocating saws, rotary hammers, etc.

For example, it makes no sense to look for a Makita HR2450 rotary hammer in Germany or the UK. This tool comes off the assembly line only from one of two Chinese factories, as evidenced by the letter “Y” or “K” at the end of the serial number on the nameplate of the tool itself (packaging and some accessories may be from different manufacturers).

Disclosure of this information demonstrates once again Makita’s transparent economic policy and its responsibility for quality. All new technologies are developed in Japan, the motherland of the brand, improved at the plant in Okazaki, and only after that they are introduced into production under the watchful eye of qualified specialists from other companies, including Chinese ones.

Quality standards are the same for all Makita products, regardless of where the manufacturer is located. All factories are certified to ISO 9000:2000 for customer satisfaction.

The quality of Chinese Makita, if it is not a cheap knockoff, is on par with that of Japanese, English or, for example, German. And in order to rule out fakes, it is enough to use the services of an official Makita dealer. For example, the services of MakitaPro.

The Makita UC 4030 A electric chainsaw is controlled by convenient and clear buttons and levers. Thanks to its design features, this model is easy to wait on. The use of sealed ball bearings and a special gear lubrication system ensures longer saw life without specialized maintenance.

The saw has an automatic chain lubrication system (built-in oil tank capacity of 0.14 l), which extends the life of the saw head and the tool as a whole. The lubrication level can be checked visually through a large inspection window.

Installation of the saw (bar and chain) is easy due to the “accessibility” of the drive sprocket. Chain tensioning is carried out without the use of an auxiliary tool.

To improve the safety of the UC4030A chain saw, the developers of this model have introduced an inertia chain brake that protects the user from accidental injury due to “kickback”. This system provides a split-second stop – before the “thrown” tool can even “catch up” and cause injury. To protect the mains against overload and prevent premature wear of the mechanism, the Makita UC4030A electric chainsaw has an electronic starting current limiting system.
