Will the Makita BS610Z allow the use of a Makita BL1815 battery?

Asked by: Anonymous
No, the BSS610Z (18V LXT 6-1/2" Circular Saw) cannot be used with an 18V Compact Lithium-Ion battery, part #BL1815. These 18V Compact batteries were specifically designed only to power our 18V Compact tool line-up. The BSS610Z requires the use of an 18V LXT 3.0Ah battery, part #BL1830 / sku #607887, which charges in only 30 minutes and will fit 40+ 18V LXT cordless tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Cordless Saw The Makita 18V Lithium Ion 6 1/2" saw is an excellent little saw. It is lite and powerful, and has replaced my heavier Porter Cable Mag423. I use it to cut large stock into manageable sizes before running throug my table saw and other power tools. Great saw!.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent I purchase a lot of Makita power tools and love them all but this one seems to lack a little power! I was cutting some 1x6's and it got slowed down fast! Nice saw, but I expected more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Appears rugged and well designed Just received it and of course, had to play with it. Well balanced and powerful. Feels and cuts better than my other cordless and corded saws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent saw for DIY-ers Bought this saw because doing house repairs. Works great. It is very compact, lightweight, and easy to use. I recommend this highly to anyone looking for a cordless circular saw. I knew this going in, but be warned that battery must be purchased separately unless you buy the "kit".
