MAKITA DELIVERS WORLD'S FIRST 7-1/4" CIRCULAR SAW POWERED BY TWO 18V BATTERIES

New XSH01X/Z delivers the cutting performance of a corded saw

18V X2 LXT Lithium-Ion (36V) Cordless 7-1/4" Circular Saw Kit (model XSH01X)

La Mirada, CA – Makita has delivered a new industry standard with the 18V X2 LXT® Lithium-Ion (36V) Cordless 7-1/4” Circular Saw. 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.

It’s the latest addition to Makita’s expanding 18V LXT® Series, the world’s largest 18V lithium-ion cordless tool line-up* with over 70 tools powered by the 18V LXT® battery that reaches a full charge in only 30 minutes.

A New Industry Standard
“For years, contractors have made it clear that cordless circular saws fall short on run time, power and capacity,” said Mario Lopez, Product Manager, Cordless, Makita USA. “Until now, no one has ever been able to deliver a cordless circular saw with a 7-1/4” blade within the 18V platform that gets the end user closer to corded saw cutting power. Today, the Makita 18V X2 LXT® 7-1/4” Circular Saw is the new industry standard in cordless circular saws.”

Longer Run Time
The Makita-built motor delivers 4,800 RPM for fast cutting and ripping. In performance testing the XSH01X/Z made 250 cuts in 2x4 lumber per charge**, which is up to 2.5 times more cuts per charge than the Makita 18V Cordless 6-1/2” Circular Saw, model BSS611Z.

More Capacity
With a 7-1/4” blade the XSH01X/Z has a cutting capacity of 2-5/8” at 90 degrees, which is more than the Makita 5007F, a market-leading corded circular saw with 2-1/2” cutting capacity.

Fast Cutting
In side-by-side testing the XSH01X/Z exhibited corded power and speed, cross-cutting a 2x10 in only 1.5 seconds and matching the cutting time of the corded 5007F.

More Features, Less Weight
Model XSH01X/Z has a reinforced magnesium base for added durability and weighs only 10.1 lbs. (with batteries). The saw includes two L.E.D. indicators that monitor battery charge status and temperature. Additional features include an on-board blade wrench for added convenience, an electric brake for maximum productivity, rubberized soft grip handles for increased comfort, and a built-in dust blower engineered to clear the line-of-cut for improved visibility.

Model XSH01X is a kit and includes the saw, two 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion batteries, the ENERGY STAR® qualified Rapid Optimum Charger, a 7-1/4" 24T Ultra-Coated Framing Blade, Saw Guide, and Contractor Bag. Model XSH01Z is a bare tool (tool only). For more on the new industry standard in cordless circular saws, go to the new Makita 18V X2 microsite.
