Questions & Answers

I understand it can be used for cross-cutting. Can it also be used for "ripping" wood, etc.?

I understand it can be used for cross-cutting. Can it also be used for "ripping" wood, etc.?
Asked by: EJ
A little wimpy for ripping except maybe light cedar such as fence boards.

Does it cut metal ?

Steel master lock bike chain. I lost my keys.
Asked by: Mel
Maybe if you can find an appropriate blade. I think the Milwaukee model would be a better choice but cutting depth is about 60% of the Makita.

Makita 12-Volt MAX CXT Lithium-Ion 3-3/8 in. Cordless Circular Saw (Tool-Only) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have to say I'm a dewalt fan. But I needed a battery operated saw that was PRECISE. I've owned ... I have to say I'm a dewalt fan. But I needed a battery operated saw that was PRECISE. I've owned it for a year and It's gotten me out of so many jams. Long battery life. I didn't use a battery for almost 6 months and it was still fully charged. Very impressive. today I couldn't get a counter top made of wood off the base. So I dialed this into the exact thickness of the wood and made several passes. And it worked. Fantastic product!!!! Goes through 1" wood like butter. Great for sawing through plywood since putting a huge chunk on a table say is hard to do with one person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased this tool for trim work and have found it... Purchased this tool for trim work and have found it be a great little saw. It is a light duty tool to be sure, but it makes accurate cuts, is easy to maneuver and works better than I expected with more power. Have ripped plywood with it (1/2”), cut off fence panels and cut 5/4 decking boards.
