Product Overview

The 18-Volt X2 LXT Lithium-Ion (36-Volt) Cordless 7-1/4 in. circular saw (model XSH01X) is the world's first cordless 7-1/4 in. circular saw powered by two 18-Volt batteries. The XSH01X provides the performance of a corded saw without leaving the strongly-preferred 18-Volt platform. It's part of Makita's expanding 18-Volt LXT series, the world's largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18-Volt Lithium-Ion battery. The Makita 18-Volt LXT battery has the fastest charge time in its category, so it spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger. The Makita built motor delivers 4,800 RPM for fast cutting and ripping. In performance testing the XSH01X/Z made 250 cuts in 2x4 lumber per charge, which is up to 2.5 times more cuts per charge than the Makita 18-Volt Cordless 6-1/2 in. Circular Saw, model BSS611Z. With a 7-1/4 in. blade the XSH01X/Z has a cutting capacity of 2-5/8 in. at 90 Degree . In side-by-side testing the XSH01X/Z exhibited corded power and speed, cross-cutting a 2X10 in only 1.5 seconds and matching the cutting time of the Makita 5007F corded circular saw.

Answer: 
You need any Makita LXT battery with a star logo on the top. Pretty much any one 2.0 AH or larger, with the only exception being older 3.0 AH. They will work, but won't be able to put out full power or run time, as they lack the proper electronics to communicate with the tool. Bottom line, look for the star on the battery!

On this model, the blade is positioned on the right side. On Makita's 6 1/2 " model, it's positioned on the left side. Why the difference ?

Answer: 
It's a standard 7 1/4" circular saw, so the blade is on the right, like most electric saws. It's a matter of international preference. A few brands, including Makita, have sold left-blade 7 1/4" saws, with poor sales results. People say they want a left-blade saw, but rarely buy them when they're available. Makes no sense, but manufacturers will make what people will buy in the long run

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Everything I hoped it would be I'm a commercial finish carpenter and I'm pretty demanding on a circular saw. I was worried that a cordless saw wouldn't have the power to cut the materials I need. I saw the dual battery system and decided to give it a try and it delivered. This saw has done everything I have wanted it to do and done it well . If your looking for a saw that is portable and has the power to get the job done I highly recommend the Makita 36 volt 7/14 cordless circular saw. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool. The saw uses 2 - 18v batteries so it is a little heavier than the construction grade cordless I had stolen but a little lighter than the worm drive plug in saw I have. The motor will cut through studs, plywood and white-wood, bogs just a bit when it encounters a knot. I have not yet used it on a long enough job to run the batteries down. August 2, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great idea.. But very comber some with right side blade This saw has plenty of power! I love the way it cuts. I bought this so that my guys could rip down Masonite and lap siding to 3 1/2" without having to grab a corded saw and start up the generator. That's when I ran into the first problem with the saw. With the makita rip fence you cannot rip 3 1/2". In the real world when most contractors buy worm drive saws with the blade on the left it just doesn't make the cut for me. Or any other of my 15 guy crew. After a few days of this saw on the job not one of my guys would touch it. April 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Power, performance and portability encapsulated in a single tool This isn’t my first cordless saw but first ever that takes two 18v batteries to run. This saw truly delivers power, performance and portability encapsulated in a single tool. I am absolutely amazed with its capability. I have always experienced power trade off with cordless tools but this tool is a whole different story, zero power loss what so ever. Putting together a wooden ramp and a shed base, this saw cut tons of 2X4s and 2X6s on a single charge. In fact, batteries still had some juice left when I was done. Beveled or straight, it was right on the dot and gave me perfect cuts. For longer cuts, I found on board clamping screw extremely helpful while using it with rip fence. The mechanism to insert the guide is very simple. My other saws never had electric brake so I didn’t even know what a cool feature that it. Its electric brake stops the blade in half a second and I find it very convenient during quick stops and starts. It looks very stylish, and with two batteries installed it does not feel heavy on the arms. Talking about safety, the trigger lock, electric brake, overload and overheat protection features certainly adds peace of mind for me. Be mindful that battery overheat protection will work only with the batteries that have a Star sign in the back. Tiny slot to store hex key is handy and now I never have to look for the key to replace the blade. The charger I use for the batteries charges within 30 minutes but since you will charge one battery at a time, your total charge time will be 1 hour apx. These Makita 18v batteries are compatible with all other 18v Makita tools; it’s an investment worth every penny that allows me to buy just bare tools. I carry the saw, batteries and charger in Makita's contractor bag. The bag looks cool and offers ample storage for everything. All in all, this is the best cordless saw I have ever owned. Highly recommended for DIYers and professionals of all trades. April 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful and cordless Lots of power in a cordless package. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of some other saws, but it was built for power, not to be pretty. Using two batteries (36v) will prevent it from binding up like other 18v cordless saws, but it does make it a it heavier. One other thing to note - you'll need to be comfortable making cuts with your left hand as that is the orientation of the tool. Overall, I prefer this saw over my 18v cordless, and it does just as good a job as my corded saw without the wire getting in the way! May 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beyond Impressed I was a little skeptical when I first heard about this saw. A Home Depot rep was saying it was incredible after seeing it at a training. Claimed it cut like an electric Makita. Being a Makita user, I was willing to give it a try, because dragging a power cord around is a pain when I'm all over the job site. When I got it home and tested it out, I was BLOWN AWAY! It does cut closer to the speed and power of an electric than any other cordless saw I've ever seen or used. Plus, it uses the same 18V batteries I've been using for years. Another subcontractor on a job was raving about their new 18V brushless 7 1/4" saw and how great it was and how fast it cut, blah blah blah. After hearing him go on and on for a day, I showed him this.Cuts faster, bogs down less, and gets WAYYYY more cuts per charge (plus charges in half the time-per battery). Since he tried this one out, he hasn't said a word- especially when he found out it was LESS money than his (the red one) The only disadvantage is that it weighs a little more--but still less than my electric sidewinder. Another thing that blew me away was Makita's claims of 250 cuts per charge (in a 2x4). I was skeptical of this, too. We were done a little early on a Friday and had a bunch of scrap wood laying around (and time to kill), so I charged up some 3.0 AH batteries to put the claim to the test. I gave up after 290 cuts, and the saw was still going. This was non-stop cutting too, so I imagine it could have been even better with real-world use making a few cuts, then cooling down. Plus, now Makita has 4.0 and 5.0 AH batteries. I can't imagine how many cuts they would do. I've never been let down by my Makita tools and batteries. Take care of them, and they'll give you years of trouble-free use. This saw continues my experience of being blown away by what Makita can do. Kep your yellow, red, and orange tools. I'll keep Makita and spend my time on the job, not in the tool repair shop!- April 20, 2015
