can I change the blade on this product and cut wood too?

Asked by: Anonymous
Thank you for your question regarding this Makita product. To answer your question, the Makita BCS550Z is a 5-3/8" metal cutting saw. The BCS550Z was specifically engineered and designed for metal cutting applications such as mild steel and aluminum. It should not be used to cut wood, even with a wood blade. If you are looking for a cordless circular saw to cut wood, Makita offers three options. Makita BSS610Z and BSS611Z are 6-1/2" circular saws designed for cutting wood such as a 2" x 6". If you plan on using the circular saw for more finish work, Makita offers a smaller 5-3/8" circular trim saw for cutting wood. All three models are part of the Makita family of 45+ tools that all run on the 18V LXT Lithium-Ion battery

does the metal cutting saw come in any combo packages

I want to buy the metal cutting saw (18V) and the 4 1/2" 18V grinder/cut off wheel. Is it possible these might come in a combo
Asked by: cmcjwn
The only combo kit the Makita Metal Cutting Saw (BCS550) comes in is the 15-Tool Kit (LXT1500.) However, it is available as a “Bare Tool” (Model BCS550Z), battery and charger not included, but you may use your Makita 3.0 Ah Battery (BL1830) and Charger (DC18RC or DC18RA). The Makita 4-1/2 in. Cut-Off/Angle Grinder (BGA452) is available in a variety of kits: 15-Tool Kit (LXT1500), 12-Tool Kit (LXT1200), 9-Tool Kit (LXT902), 7-Tool Kit (LXT702) and 6-Tool Kit (LXT601). However, this tool is also available as a “Bare Tool” (Model BGA452Z.)
