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 765.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This saw works really well. It is lightweight and easy to operate with either hand since you can ... This saw works really well. It is lightweight and easy to operate with either hand since you can easily see where the blade contacts the wood from either side. I wondered if it would have enough power but it really cuts fast and clean. Also I doesn't seem to be as loud, when cutting, as my big corded circular saw. I got it in a kit with a battery and charger. The battery that came with it and the batteries from my other Makita LXT star tools all work interchangeably without problems or modifications. Its already been knocked off the bench on to the ground (outside) a few times and has not suffered any damage not even a crack. Along with this saw, there is a 20yr old 12V Makita drill driver in the attached image that still works! That's even after being dropped on the concrete from 8ft up several times. No, it is not compatible with the LXT star tools.

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.

Still worked great after years of abuse, but I dropped the impact off a ladder and broke the casing. No other drill/impact kit can compete with Makita. They last, the batteries are great, and the power amazing.
