Product Overview

Makita, a pioneer in Brushless Motor technology and battery innovation, combines both in the 18-Volt X2 LXT (36-Volt) Lithium-Ion Brushless 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw (XSH06Z, tool-only, batteries and charger sold separately). 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 XSH06Z as they use across the expansive Makita 18-Volt LXT cordless tool system. The XSH06Z 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 XSH06Z made up to 600 cross-cuts per charge in 2X4 SPF lumber using 2 fully-charged 5.0 Ah batteries. Added features include a large 2-11/16 in. cutting capacity at 90, and an electric brake for maximum productivity. The saw has a die-cast magnesium base and blade guard with die-cast aluminum blade cover and motor housing. This bundle includes the B-61656, 7-1/4 in. 24T Carbide-Tipped Ultra-Thin Kerf Saw Blade for framing.

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.

The Makita 7-1/4 In. 24T Carbide-Tipped Ultra-Thin Kerf Saw Blade is an excellent saw blade providing fast, clean cuts. The blade fits easily on most 7 1/4 inch saws. The arbor is 5/8 inch in diameter and has a knock-out feature that can convert the round arbor to a diamond shaped arbor if the saw requres that type of opening. Easily cuts and rips. I was surprised how easily it cut through a 2x4 fir stud.

The saw blade is sharp. Of course, you would expect that from any new blade. The first test cut was smooth and returned no vibration. The thin kerf will produce less saw dust, and hopefully more cuts due to less drag on the blade. I've only used it for a few test cuts (don't have a current project to use it on), but it showed no wear after the test.

I am submitting my review of the Makita 7 1/4 " 24T Carbide tipped, ultra thin kerf framing saw blade. I recently acquired a large quantity of pressure treated 2×6's from a deck demolition. I had a few projects that required narrower material, so I decided to rip the 2×6's. I was very happy with the performance of the blade, most of the boards I cut were 16' long . I did not encounter any binding and the cuts were all clean. I was careful to check for any nails or deck screws because I don't think the blade would survive if it were to hit one. I will definitely use this blade again.

Blade is definitely thin. As seen in picture, it's a good 1/3 thinner than my DeWalt Thin Framing Blade. The description online shows that it was designed for the new Cordless Saws, but could be used for Corded Saws as well. I don't have a big Cordless Saw, so I used it in my Corded Saw. After cutting with this blade, it does produce a clean, smooth cut. With my first cut, I encountered a knot at the edge of the 2 x 4 and I could tell the saw blade knew it. However, I cut several other pieces and the blade performed well. It may have been the paint covering the carbide and blade sides causing friction. Thinner blade means thinner carbide tips. I don't know how long this blade will last on a regular saw. I would definitely buy it again if I had a 7 1/4" Cordless Saw. So consider what saw you are using it on when buying.

This ultra thin blade is intended for framing. It looks like it is well made and I had no problems with the construction of the blade. My first cuts were in MDF and this was very smooth and easy. My next project was to rip a SYP 2 x 8. This blade performed poorly. I cut in about 3 inches and got stuck. The wood was twisting and grabbed the blade. I placed a wedge in the kerf and continued to cut and got stuck again. I did this several times and then I gave up. I reinstalled my old blade and finished the cut and ripped several other pieces without any problems. I think the old blade has teeth that are wider than the main blade body, so the blade was not pinched like the Makita. The Makita blade has residue buildup behind the teeth after about a foot of cutting into SYP.

I have the basic 7.25" ryobi cordless 18v miter saw and it works pretty well for very light duty. Cuts trim and molding for around the house remodeling or repair. It will cut larger stuff such as 2 x 4's but finding very thin kerf blades suitable for mitering can be a challenge. Home Depot sells the saw but often has no blades. This Makita framing blade IS thin kerf and says on the blade that it is suitable for miter cuts. It fits the smaller saw and is rated for speed in excess of the tools capability.
