The 40V max XGT® Brushless Rear Handle 10-1/4” Circular Saw (GSR02Z) provides cordless convenience, while taking on high-demand applications. The Makita-built brushless motor delivers 4,000 RPM for faster cutting than corded. It cuts 4X the material in a single pass with an extra large cutting capacity of 3-3/4”. This saw is ideal for framers, builders, roofers, forming, and more.
The GSR02Z offers 56-degrees bevel capacity with positive stops at 22.5-degrees and 45-degrees and a bevel up to 56-degrees. The saw features an electric brake for maximum productivity and a die-cast magnesium base.
Automatic Torque Drive Technology adjusts cutting speed under load for optimum cutting performance. 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.

XGT® is a new 40V | 80V max system of cordless equipment and tools. XGT outpowers, outsmarts, and outlasts the rest. Through Makita’s innovative engineering, the technology within XGT will lead to creating the equipment and tools of the future [Learn More]
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.
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.
