Product Overview

The Makita 6-1/2 in. Plunge Cut Circular Saw delivers precise and accurate cutting, even close to the wall (11/16 in.) and a splinter-free, mirror finish. Driven by a powerful 12 Amp motor, it has soft start for smooth start-ups and a plunge release lever for comfort. Ergonomically designed, rubberized handles also add to the comfort and give you more control of the saw, too. A large (1-7/16 in.), rear dust port directs debris away from you and easily connects to a vacuum.

Customer Questions & Answers

Does this saw come with the track, or is that an additional purchase?

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.
Asked by: Matty
Thank you for your question. The rail is not included with the Makita SP6000J. Makita model SP6000J1 is the saw with the rail.

Can I use any standard 6.5 saw blade available off the shelf at Home Depot or is the arbor a special size

Asked by: Aaron
The Makita 12 Amp 6-1/2 in. Plunge Circular Saw (SP6000J) has a 20mm arbor. The Home Depot offers a 6-1/2 in. 48-Teeth Carbide Tipped Saw Blade (B-07353) with a 20mm arbor that is compatible with the SP6000J.

Customer Reviews

12 Amp 6-1/2 in. Plunge Circular Saw is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makita Track Saw The only thing that could make this track saw better is to have someone give it to me, Easy to set up, easy to use, track stays put even with no clamping, cuts smooth and clean. It makes cutting large sheets of ply super easy. This is a 5 star tool
