Product Overview

Makita, a pioneer in Brushless Motor technology and battery innovation, combines both in the 18-Volt X2 (36V) LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw Kit (XSH06PT). It's powered by two 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion batteries for maximum performance and has an electronically controlled BL Brushless motor that matches torque and RPM to the application. Makita 18-Volt X2 means freedom from the cord, even for demanding applications like cutting sheet and dimensional lumber that traditionally called for a corded saw. Best of all, users can remain in 1 battery platform, using the same fast-charging 18-Volt batteries with the XSH06PT as they use across the expansive Makita 18-Volt LXT cordless tool system. The XSH06PT has a long list of features for efficient cutting without the cord. The electronically controlled Brushless Motor delivers a full 6,000 RPM for efficient cutting, with Automatic Speed Change technology to adjust the cutting speed and torque under load for optimum performance. In internal testing, the XSH06PT made up to 610 crosscuts per charge in 2x4 SPF lumber and up to 320 crosscuts per charge in 2x10 SPF lumber using 2 fully charged 5.0Ah batteries. Added features include a large 2-5/8 in. cutting capacity at 90°, and an electric brake for maximum productivity. This bundle also includes the B-61656, 7-1/4 in. 24T Carbide-Tipped Ultra-Thin Kerf Saw Blade for framing.

Saw was delivered quickly and damage free. Saw does everything I expected. The dual 5.0ah batteries last quite a long time. I built a parts room in the shop with some left over plywood and some 2x3s. On 3 charges.

Took my business to the next level!
For too long, I thought cord-less meant less-power. Let's get something straight... this has HEAPS of power, probably more than you will need. While there was a point in this technology's history where the runtime just could not measure up to its corded brethren, those times are long behind us. Of course, you don't get the unlimited runtime of corded, but do get something even more important; MANEUVERABILITY. It's a larger upfront investment, but it is just that; an investment! You'll be more productive, and that means more happiness! In the long run, you'll be glad you joined the Makita platform. This saw is smooth as all heck. I mean, like butter. 2X and plywood get eaten for breakfast. It's easy to keep straight and to be honest, I hardly use my track guide for ripping anymore unless it needs to be dead-square. A steady hand and the willingness to let the tool do the work will result in a fantastic product. She is square and true and easy to use. The battery placement is perfectly weighted, and while it does have heft, it's balanced and intentional. To address the blade guard issue, it will get stuck if your depth setting is incorrect or your base isn't flush to the material. I've come to accept it's a safety feature. You shouldn't be cutting through 3/4 inch material with a blade depth set to 1 1/2 inches. It isn't safe, and it will result in a poor finished product. As far as runtime, with the included blade, you're going to get improved performance. Even the 24T provides a really smooth finish that will be fine for most applications. I, however, swapped it out for a Diablo 60T Ultra finishing blade because I mostly build cabinets and do custom carpentry. I can't attest to the company's claims of 600 2x4 cuts and 300 2x10 cuts per set of 5aH batteries as I mostly cut 3/4" plywood, but I can work consistently for 10 hours and only use 1 1/2 sets of 5 aH batteries. You'll definitely make it through any typical day of use without running out of juice with 4 5.0 aH batteries. Just do it. Even when it's not on sale, it's completely worth it! You'll regret not doing it sooner once you see the world of opportunity it opens up!

    The Makita 7-1/4" carbide tipped blade is surprisingly thin with the tips measuring slightly less than 1/16"! Usually carbide tips can be as much as an 1/8" or more. I compared this to my diablo framing blade with mostly the same specs - the tips are about double (see pic). This means that there is more stock waste, more sawdust, slower cuts compared to a thinner, faster and less stock waste and sawdust. This blade features eight cut outs for debris and faster rips and cross-cuts. It is made for either corded or cordless saws as well. It has 24 teeth with 5/8" arbor. Max speed is rated at 8,300 rpms. Although faster than a thicker blade, my diablo blades are coated with a non-stick surface. You can achieve this manually with a silicone spray should you be cutting wood that is catching the blade.

    This ultra-thin kerf framing blade by Makita cuts like a hot knife through butter! I tested this blade against other framing blades that I had on hand. The Makita blade cut through effortlessly with no tear out on pine 5/4" decking boards. Besides clean, thin cuts, the other purpose of the thin kerf saw is that it uses less energy, making it ideal for a cordless saw where you are making multiple cuts and would be concerned with how much battery that you are using. With any thin kerf blade you will want to make sure that you don't overheat the blade which can cause it to warp, especially with thicker pieces of wood. For novices, make sure that you know what you will be using a blade for and have several different types on hand. Spend the extra few minutes to switch out blades to use the correct blade for the job. It makes a difference in your final product and the longevity of you blades. I would recommend adding this blade to your collection.

    I installed this blade on my Makita worm drive saw and was able to run through some wood I had on hand. I tested the blade using cross cuts on soft and hardwood of varying thickness. The pine boards were easy to cut with clean edges. The thin plywood needs a blade with more teeth. With the hardwoods, I did go a little slower with my cross cuts. The maple was easier to cut when compared to 1.25” thick walnut. I am not a contractor so I can’t speak to the longevity of the blade or how it would perform being used every day on a job site. Overall, this is a good quality blade that should last the average home owner/Do it yourselfer a long time. I would definitely use this blade for framing purposes and maybe ripping softwood that doesn’t need a super smooth edge.

    The MAKITA 7-1/4 IN. 24T CARBIDE-TIPPED circular saw blade is a great addition to any circular saw or small tablesaw arsenal. The narrow kerf makes resawing cuts more efficient by wasting less material than thicker blades will. This blade also works well for doing things like bent plywood laminates etc. I have had several of these in the past and found the blades to last a long time (years with light to moderate use). As with any thin blade you will want to be conscious of heat management and feed rate, to prevent the blade from warping and ruining the cut. This most recent blade arrived missing a tooth. However that did not seem to impede the function of the blade at all. I'll just have to keep an eye on it to see if any other teeth fall off. My last blade (roughly 5 years old?) Still has all its teeth, so chances are good that this will last me. Overall, I would recommend this blade as a good addition to anyone's shop. It produces a kerf of just a hair over 1/16", is relatively quite, and based on others I have had over the years, lasts a good long while with proper use. For a rough blade (24 tooth) it produces a very smooth cut with minimal tear out.
