Answer: 
The difference is the 610 has L.E.D. lights to light your work and an engine brake to stop the blade. Two very nice features.

Answer: 
The BSS610 includes an L.E.D. light, has an electric brake, and a built-in dust blower to keep the line of cut free of debris. The BSS611 does not include these features. In terms of specifications, (RPM, cutting capacity, arbor, blade diameter, no load speed, max. cutting depth, length) the tools are the exact same.

Answer: 
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.

Hi Rancher, I contacted Makita to get you an answer. Makita stated their circular saws run with Lithium batteries.
There is not a model circular saw, for your battery pack.

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
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 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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!. September 20, 2009
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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". January 18, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Use only Use only 3amp Batt. with all 18V LXT tools [ note ] Smaller batts. will burn up quikly or possable fire risk with lithium-Ion But power to wieght ratio can not be beat in the 18V Makita tools I recommend for PRO'S and advaneced do-it-your-selfers November 21, 2007
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 4, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This saw is lightweight and powerful. It gets the job done! This saw is a pleasure to use. The 6-1/2 " blade works well cutting through 3/4" plywood. A great purchase! November 8, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 14, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good buy Bought this saw to extend my portable toolkits of the XLT series. Battary fits, very solid and powerful. Very happy with my choice. January 3, 2012
