What is the advantage of this Makita XSR01Z 18V X2 LXT Lithium-Ion 36V Brushless Cordless Rear Handle 7-1 4 Circular Saw?
Makita, a pioneer in brushless motor technology and battery innovation, combines both in the 18V X2 LXT 36V Lithium-Ion Brushless Rear Handle 7-1 4 Circular Saw XSR01Z, tool only, batteries and charger sold separately . It s powered by two 18V LXT Lithium-Ion batteries for maximum performance, and has an electronically-controlled BL Brushless motor that matches torque and RPM to the application. Makita 18V X2 means freedom from the cord, even for demanding applications like cutting sheet and dimensional lumber that traditionally called for a corded saw. Best of all, users can remain in one battery platform, using the same fast-charging 18V batteries with the XSR01Z as they use across the expansive Makita 18V LXT cordless tool series. The XSR01Z has a long list of features for efficient cutting without the cord. Users of leading corded saws will appreciate the blade-left rear-handle design. The electronically-controlled brushless motor delivers a full 5,100 RPM for efficient cutting. In internal testing, the XSR01Z made up to 558 cross-cuts per charge in 2×4 SPF lumber using two fully-charged 5.0Ah batteries. Added features include a large 2-9 16 cutting capacity at 90 degrees that will cut 3X lumber in a single pass, and an electric brake for maximum productivity. The saw has a die-cast magnesium base and blade guard with die-cast aluminum blade cover and motor housing, which combines durability with less weight only 12.4 lbs. with batteries, sold separately . It s part of Makita s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion system, the world s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries. Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger. For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created Star Protection Computer Controls. Star Protection is communication technology that allows the Star Protection-equipped tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita 18V LXT and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
Customer reviewsA welcome change from a worm drive
I m a contractor and this thing so far is up to the professional requirements of a jobsite. It s noticeably lighter than a corded magnesium worm drive, but not so light that it can t push through material. Seems like the perfect balance. A rear handle saw needs to have some weight, but doing a lot of repetitive work with a standard corded saw can be hard on the arms and wrists, so it s nice to shed a few pounds with this thing.
