MAKITA EXPANDS 18V LXT SUB-COMPACT CLASS WITH NEW CIRCULAR SAW

18V LXT Sub-Compact Saw combines 12V handling with 18V run time and compatibility

18V LXT® Sub-Compact Brushless 6-1/2” Circular Saw Kit (model XSH04RB)

La Mirada, CA – Makita® is expanding the new class in cordless tools with the 18V LXT® Sub-Compact Brushless 6-1/2” Circular Saw. The new XSH04 gives contractors a compact circular saw with the size and handling of a 12-volt tool, but with the run time and compatibility of 18 volt. It is ideal for a full range of cutting applications. 

World’s Largest 18V System
The new Sub-Compact saw is part of Makita LXT. With over 200 solutions in 2018, LXT is the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18-volt lithium-ion slide-style batteries.
 
More Performance, More Compact
The Sub-Compact 6-1/2” Circular Saw has a compact and ergonomic design at only 10-5/8” and 6.4 lbs. (with 18V LXT Compact 2.0Ah battery). The compact size combined with the Makita-built brushless motor delivers up to 5,000 RPM and a superior power-to-weight ratio. The saw is equipped with Makita’s Automatic Speed Change™ technology, which adjusts cutting speed and torque under load for optimum cutting performance. The efficient brushless motor is electronically controlled to provide up to 50% longer run time than non-brushless motors, and in run-time testing the XSH04 made up to 174 cross cuts in 2x10 SPF lumber on a single charge of the 18V LXT 5.0Ah battery (sold separately). Users can use Makita 18V LXT batteries including the compact 2.0Ah (BL1820B), as well as the 3.0Ah (BL1830B), 4.0Ah (BL1840B), 5.0Ah (BL1850B) or 6.0Ah (BL1860B), all sold separately.
 
Additional Features
Added convenience features include dual L.E.D. lights, electric brake, built-in tether notch (tether sold separately), and Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™) for improved dust and water resistance in harsh job site conditions. The dust extracting attachment directs material away from the user, and also allows connection to a vacuum (sold separately) for improved dust collection. The saw is available in a kit that includes a Rapid Optimum Charger and two 18V LXT 2.0Ah batteries (XSH04RB), and as a “tool only” (XSH04ZB, batteries and charger sold separately).
 
Star Protection Computer Controls™
The XSH04 and over 150 LXT cordless solutions feature 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. Makita lithium-ion tools, batteries and chargers are backed by a 3-year limited warranty.
