Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightest Weight 18-Volt Compact Portable Band Saw Available I have always been intrigued by portable band saws and wondered if I had a use for one. After some research, I decided to obtain the Makita XBP01 Compact Portable Band Saw. What drew me to the XBP01 Band Saw is the compact size and 18-volt platform. After using the band saw for several weeks, I am very impressed with it’s performance. The Makita XBP01 Kit comes with the band saw, 2 ea. 18-volt 3 amp-hour batteries, recharger and contractor bag. The batteries recharge in only 30 minutes. The ergonomics of the band saw are very good, with rubber handles and is evenly balanced. It also has an LED light that illuminates the work space. At only 7.5 lbs (with battery) the XBP01 band saw is designed for one hand use. It has a 2.5 inch cutting capacity, and spins a 32 7/8” blade at 630 ft. per minute. Overall I am very pleased with the Makita XPB01 Band Saw, and now wonder how I could get along without it. The XBP01 is the lightest 18-volt compact portable band saw available. Highly recommended!!
