Product Overview

The Makita 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 5-3/8 in. Trim Circular Saw combines cordless cutting power with less weight in a compact size. The XSS03Z (tool only) has a Makita built high torque motor and a 2 in. maximum cutting capacity, making it ideal for woodworkers and finish carpenters. It's part of Makita's expanding 18-Volt Lithium-Ion series, the world's largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18-Volt Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. Makita 18-Volt Lithium-Ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger. For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created 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. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita 18-Volt LXT and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.

Will the tool use the 1.5ah Lithium Ion battery, made by Makita? I attached an image of the batteries I already have. Without knowing if this tool uses this battery, I can't comfortably make this purchase so an answer would be greatly appreciated. The letters, "LXT" aren't written anywhere on the battery...

Answer: 
The 18V Compact Lithium-Ion 1.5Ah battery is not compatible with high amp-draw tools like cordless circular saws. Makita created the 18-Volt Compact Lithium-Ion category with the fast-charging 1.5Ah Battery (BL1815), which is built for more compact tools for drilling, driving, and fastening as well as accessories. For best performance, high amp-draw tools like saws, grinders, rotary hammers and more are Read More

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use Saw This saw is small and light, easy to use in challenging situations. I used it to trim the outside edge of a binding wooden gate without having to remove the gate. September 21, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by using batteries This is an exceptional little saw. Does exactly as its description claims, BUT, when it comes to the rechargable lith/ion batt. Cartrige it wouldnt work! I had to (w/dremmel)modify one side of each battery slide because it prevents its use! Lame! If i already have many batts i certainly dont want purchase just one for this application! If modifying them didnt work i certainly would have returned it. Unhappily and certainly highly irritated. Lame battery prob. Makita, if every tool requires non- interchangable batteries, they become cost prohibitive for me. Except for this, its an excellent saw. December 20, 2015
