CONTRACTOR GIVES HIGH MARKS TO MAKITA 18V LXT® MITER SAW

Chicago carpenter likes LXSL01's convenience, portability, and fast-charging battery

The Makita 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless 7-1/2" Dual Slide Compound Miter Saw (LXSL01) is ideal for room-to-room applications. So Tools of the Trade asked Manor Services, a Chicago-area carpenter-contractor, to try out.

Manor Services focuses on window and door installations and doesn't always need the capacity and power of a 10" or 12" miter saw, so they were eager to try out the more compact LXSL01. They gave it high marks for the combination of capacity and compact size, as well as for accuracy and ease of adjustment. They remarked on the fast-charging battery (only 30 minutes) and noted the fan feature in the ENERGY STAR® qualified Rapid Optimum Charger, which channels air through the battery to facilitate a faster charge. They liked the LXSL01 for applications that demand convenience and portability.

The versatile LXSL01 will cut a two-by-twelve at 90 degrees and a two-by-eight at 45 degrees yet it weighs only 27.5 pounds, making it jobsite portable which is ideal for room-to-room applications. It's a portable and precision cutting solution to remodelers, floor contractors, cabinet installers, case and base installers, and more. The LXSL01 is part of Makita's expanding line-up of 18V LXT® line-up, with 60+ tools powered by one fast-charging 18V Lithium-Ion battery.

The compact size of the LXSL01 makes it ideal for room-to-room applications. Manor Services gave it high marks for convenience and portability.

The contractor noted the fast charge time of the 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion battery, which reaches a full charge in only 30 minutes and powers 60+ tools in the expanding LXT® line-up.
