Does this saw accept 5 amp batteries?

Asked by: Ryan
This saw will run on any of Makita's star rated batteries. I have used mine with 1.5 amp, 3 amp and 4 amp batteries. Batteries must be star rated and can be indicated by the star symbol on top of the battery. I have added a pic of a 5 amp battery with the star symbol.

18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 6-1/2 in. Lightweight Circular Saw and General Purpose Blade (Tool-Only) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 686.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool and Light weight I already had the makita Li-Ion drill and wanted the circular saw for a long time. I was excited to see they sold the tool only online. I used it for the first time a few days ago and couldn't be happier. It ships with a blade, is easy to adjust, is light weight and is just a joy to use. One thing to note, it does not allow the use of the "compact" 1.5Ah batteries like the drill kit comes with. You MUST use the 3.0Ah battery. The 3 amp battery can also be used on your makita drill however. These tools Rock. The batteries are MUCH lighter and the tools in general are much lighter than other brands. The batteries can go a very long time without really discharging, they charge SUPER fast (15 min/30min depending on battery size) so I have never been in a situation where I couldn't work because I was waiting for batteries to charge. I use my tools all day long so these features where important to me. Absolutely worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astonishingly good little saw I expected little better than the old 18v saws when I bought this, to get myself out of a jamb. This saw has been used in every way imaginable, including cutting grout and masonry with abrasive discs attached, and cutting 2" shoulders in white oak for timber frame tenons. The light and blower of the next step up Makita saw would be nice (I am online to buy that one), but, this saw has performed flawlessly for 17 months. Spindle lock and on- board tool storage make blade changes easy, great power for a cordless tool, and durable. My corded circular saws only come out when I have a specific task for the 16 5/16" Makita or the worm drive with the track attachment, the 7 1/4" saws have the same film of dust on their cases as my corded drills. That said, I have several LXT tools and batteries. This would not be the best saw for someone who only has one or two batteries and limited patience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First impressions on a brand new drill combo kit are that the impact driver and the hammer drill ... First impressions on a brand new drill combo kit are that the impact driver and the hammer drill with the batteries installed are heavy in weight. The drills, charger, and batteries are all made durable - My last Makita impact driver drill is still going strong after 8 years, but the lithium batteries just started going bad after 8 years as an HVAC technician tool. The new impact driver drill is straight forward use and a power house - LOVE IT...... The new hammer drill also has an adjustable collar on the drill head to select a standard full power drill mode, a dial select clutch for screws ( screw gun mode ), and the hammer drill function with all ranges having gobs of power. The new batteries take 45 minutes to fully charge, the led lights on the drills are a nice bright feature, and a standard plastic drill case came with the package. It would have been nice if there was a little more meatiness to the plastic drill case, and an extra little section for bit tips would have been nice as well, but who's complaining - I love these drills.

This combo kit was a Christmas gift for my son, who is a DIY Guru and is very proficient in mechanics, wood working and metal fabrication. He already owns a wide variety of Makita cordless tools, but wanted to migrate over to the brushless line, as well as the 5 amp/hr. batteries, for extended use.

Found out before I picked it up, that my existing 18 volt Makita battery, would not fit in this new tool. Would have been awesome, if it had worked out, but having to spend as much as a new tool, on the new battery and charger, is just ridiculous.

Drill is lightweight and easy to change bits, etc. Love the case and charging unit + combo with Impact Driver. My only complaint is the drill and impact driver seem a little underpowered to me. I wish they had a little more oooomph to drill and get off stubborn hardware.

The torque of the drivers is astonishing.I had to square the circular saw’s plate, but haven’t used it or the multi tool yet.The router is easy to control and it’s nice to have a cordless one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good saw Good enough makita saw that fits my 18v makita tool platform. Could use a tad bit more power. I'm excited to try out the brushless version. It's about double the price but about double the tool as well. Has an led light and hook and the saw blade guard is metal too.
