The 40V max XGT® Brushless 6-1/2” Circular Saw Kit (GSH05M1) provides cordless convenience while taking on high-demand applications. The Makita-built brushless motor delivers up to 5,200 RPM for high-speed cutting performance. The 6-1/2” Circular Saw can deliver up to 290 cuts per charge in 2x10 SPF lumber on a fully charged 40V max XGT® 4.0Ah battery.

The GSH05M1 features a 2-1/4" cutting capacity at 90° and 1-5/8" at 45°, with a 0-50° bevel capacity with positive stops at 22.5°, 45°, and 50°. The saw features electric brake for maximum productivity. It features a die-cast magnesium base, blade guard, and blade cover provide a lightweight design; weighs only 7.9 lbs. with 4.0Ah battery

Convenience features include a L.E.D. light with preglow and afterglow illuminates the work area, and a retractable extra wide tool hook that secures the tool when not in use. The GSH05 features a compact and ergonomic design at only 11-3/4" long without battery.

The saw is also equipped with Makita's Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™), is a series of integrated seals designed to improve a tool’s operation in harsh conditions by channeling water and dust from key internal components.

The GSH05 features the Auto-Start Wireless System (AWS®), which uses Bluetooth® technology for wireless power-on and power-off communication between the equipped tool and dust extractor. Once connected via AWS, the AWS-equipped dust extractor will automatically power on or off when the AWS-equipped cordless tool starts or stops, running only when the tool is in use. This increases productivity on a single charge and reduces continuous noise at the job or work site.

XGT® is a system of equipment, tools, batteries and chargers utilizing 40v max lithium-ion batteries. XGT® is engineered to deliver high power to take on high-demand applications, allowing users to completely transition to a cordless job site. XGT® is equipped with advanced brushless motor engineering, intelligent digital communication, and superior durability features to outpower, outsmart and outlast the rest.

  • AWS®
  • Makita takes another step toward a truly cordless job site with Auto-Start Wireless System. AWS® uses Bluetooth® technology for wireless power-on and power-off communication between the equipped tool and dust extractor. AWS® is intelligent communication that eliminates cords and excessive noise since the dust extractor runs only when trigger-activated by an AWS® tool. When the trigger is released, the dust extractor powers-down. The Makita AWS® dust extractor (XCV08Z) is powered by two 18V LXT® batteries for maximum performance, and users benefit with an expanding AWS® system that includes cordless tools for concrete, metal and woodworking.

  • Magnesium
  • Framers and carpenters need cutting solutions with power and performance -- not extra weight. Makita circular saws with Magnesium components are engineered for less weight with superior balance and durability. Magnesium circular saws deliver consistent performance with less weight for cutting sheet and dimensional lumber.

  • XPT™ Extreme Protection Technology
