Makita XPS01PTJ 18V X2 Brushless Lithium-Ion 6-1/2 in. Cordless Plunge Circular Saw Kit (5 Ah)


The Makita 18V X2 (36V) LXT Brushless 6-1/2 in. Plunge Circular Saw Kit delivers precise and more accurate cutting when combined with an optional guide rail system (sold separately). The saw and rail system work together to produce accurate cuts with minimal tear-out. The saw combines a powerful Makita-built brushless motor powered by two 18V LXT batteries with Automatic Speed Change Technology, which adjusts cutting speed and torque during the cut for optimum performance. The Saw has a variable speed control dial (2,500 – 6,300 RPM), with soft start and an electric brake for added convenience. It has a large 2-3/16 in. cutting capacity at 90 degrees, with a bevel capability of -1 to 48 degrees and positive stops at 22.5 and 45 degrees. When used with a rail system the Plunge Circular Saw is a more portable option to a table saw for select applications, and is ideal for use on the job site or in a workshop. The kit includes two 18V LXT 5.0 Ah batteries, and each reach a full charge in only 45 minutes on the efficient Rapid Optimum Charger – the fastest charge-time in the category – for less downtime and increased productivity. For added convenience, the batteries feature an integrated LED battery charge level indicator.
