  • Weighs Only 6.0 lbs.
  • Tool has a 3-year limited warranty from date of purchase
The Makita 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 5-3/8 in. Trim Circular Saw combines cordless cutting power with less weight in a compact size. The XSS03Z (tool only) has a Makita built high torque motor and a 2 in. maximum cutting capacity, making it ideal for woodworkers and finish carpenters. It's part of Makita's expanding 18-Volt Lithium-Ion series, the world's largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18-Volt Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. Makita 18-Volt Lithium-Ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger. For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created Star Protection Computer Controls. Star Protection is communication technology that allows the Star Protection-equipped tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita 18-Volt LXT and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
  • Makita built motor delivers 3,600 RPM for faster cutting and ripping through wood
  • Weighs only 6.0 lbs. with battery (battery not included) for reduced operator fatigue
  • Built-in dust blower keeps the line of cut free of debris for more accurate cuts
  • Heavy gauge, precision machined base for smooth, accurate cutting and added durability
  • Electric brake for maximum productivity
  • Built-in LED light illuminates the work area
  • Rubberized soft grip handle provides increased comfort on the job
  • Accepts Makita 18-Volt LXT lithium-ion battery for even longer run time
  • Equipped with star protection computer controls to protect against overloading, over-discharging and over-heating
  • Rapid optimum charger communicates with the battery's built-in chip throughout the charging process to optimize battery life by actively controlling current, voltage and temperature (battery and charger sold separately)
  • Rapid optimum charger has a built-in fan to cool the battery for faster, more efficient charging (battery and charger sold separately)
  • Makita technology delivers category-leading charge time, so the battery spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger (battery and charger sold separately)
  • Compatible with Makita 18-Volt lithium-ion batteries with a star symbol (battery sold separately)
  • 3-year warranty
  • Includes: 5-3/8 in. 16 teeth carbide-tipped circular saw blade (A-94904)

Will the tool use the 1.5ah Lithium Ion battery, made by Makita?

Will the tool use the 1.5ah Lithium Ion battery, made by Makita? I attached an image of the batteries I already have. Without knowing if this tool uses this battery, I can't comfortably make this purchase so an answer would be greatly appreciated. The letters, "LXT" aren't written anywhere on the battery...
Asked by: Josh
I would not recommend using that battery. Get at least the 4.0ah Makita battery. It's worth it.

Makita 18-Volt LXT 5-3/8 in. Circular Trim Saw (Tool-Only) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 15.

The only confusing thing is, if the trigger is released during a cut, the brake is activated and the blade stops, to continue cutting the safety release has to be pressed which is a bit cumbersome with one hand. It is makes a nice cut and quiet, no power cord dragging is a real plus.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from using batteries This is an exceptional little saw. Does exactly as its description claims, BUT, when it comes to the rechargable lith/ion batt. Cartrige it wouldnt work! I had to (w/dremmel)modify one side of each battery slide because it prevents its use! Lame! If i already have many batts i certainly dont want purchase just one for this application! If modifying them didnt work i certainly would have returned it. Unhappily and certainly highly irritated. Lame battery prob. Makita, if every tool requires non- interchangable batteries, they become cost prohibitive for me. Except for this, its an excellent saw.
