What Model Makita Cordless Circular saw uses the Model 193159-1 Batteries?

Asked by: Rancher
The Makita 6-1/2" Circular Saw (5260) is powered by this battery (193159-1). We unfortunately no longer carry this model (5260), but Makita does offer a growing 18V LXT® cordless line-up, with 70+ tools powered by one 18V Lithium-Ion battery (BL1830) that reaches a full charge in only 30 minutes.

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

Asked by: Anonymous
No.you must use the BL1830. The 1815 is too under powered for the needs of this saw. Also the 1815 is only used with the black & white Makita tools. I did a lot of searching regarding this question.

what battery and charger should I order for Makita BSS610Z 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion 6-1/2 in. Circular Saw

Asked by: Anonymous
The battery you will need is the BL1830 LXT. The charger you will need is the DC18RA rapid charger for Li-ion. The also sell a car charger DC18SE. Also if you buy any 18v LXT tool "kit" it will come with 2 batteries and a charger.

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".
