We let contractors try out the new 18V X2 LXT® Lithium-Ion (36V) 7-1/4" Circular Saw -- check out the new video (above) and see what they had to say.
New 7-1/4" Industry Standard
The new XSH01X/Z is the world’s first cordless 7-1/4" circular saw powered by two 18V batteries, providing the performance of a corded saw without leaving the strongly-preferred 18V platform. The XSH01 delivers longer runtime (up to 250 cuts in 2x4 lumber per charge**), more capacity (2-5/8" at 90 degrees), fast cutting (cross-cuts a 2x10 in only 1.5 seconds), and less weight (only 10.1 lbs., with batteries).
**For much more on the new 7-1/4" Industry Standard, go to the new Makita 18V X2 micro-site.
The new XSH01 gives contractors the cutting performance of a corded saw, without leaving the 18V LXT® platform.
