Product Overview

Makita, a pioneer in brushless motor technology and battery innovation, combines both in the 18V X2 (36V) LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw Kit (XSH06PT). It's powered by two 18V LXT Lithium-Ion batteries for maximum performance and has an electronically controlled BL Brushless motor that matches torque and RPM to the application. Makita 18V 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 one battery platform, using the same fast-charging 18V batteries with the XSH06PT as they use across the expansive Makita 18V 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 two 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. The saw has a die-cast magnesium base and blade guard with die-cast magnesium base, blade guard and blade cover, which combines durability with less weight (only 10.5 lbs. with batteries).
  • Powered by 2 LXT batteries, X2 LXT technology delivers more power, speed and run time without the hassles of a cord
  • Makita built electronically controlled BL motor delivers 6,000 RPM for maximum performance and 50% longer run time per charge
  • BL brushless motor eliminates carbon brushes, enabling the BL motor to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life
  • Automatic speed change technology adjusts cutting speed and torque during cut for optimum performance
  • X2 LXT technology delivers up to 610 crosscuts per charge in 2x4 SPF lumber and up to 320 crosscuts per charge in 2x10 SPF lumber using two 5.0Ah batteries
  • Large 2-5/8 cutting capacity at 90
  • Electric brake for maximum productivity

Yes, I tried a 2ah battery, but likely won't last too long. These batteries also worked in my drill.

No did not come with rafter hook. Would be great if they recommended to purchase one when I purchased saw and where to purchase it at.

It is not available locally howeverf it can be ordered. If I order one will it come with the extra 2 batteries in addition to the 2 that come with it?

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!

There are so many great features to this 18-volt lithium-ion cordless circ. saw from Makita, I don't know where to start. But here goes. I'm not a construction pro -- I'm a female homeowner who loves D-I-Y projects, and a lefthander, which often effects my power tool choice. I've been making the switch over to all cordless tools for the past few years, and when I saw this Makita was available, I jumped at the chance to try it out. First off, I appreciate that Makita is putting an emphasis on making their tools compact and lighter in weight, and yet still making lasting power a priority. I had no problems operating any of the adjustment levers on the saw, and found the markings & labeling easy-to-read and handy. It took less than a minute to change out the blade, the task made faster & easier with the on-board allen wrench. Depth-of-cut was super easy to set, as was angle of cuts. After an initial charge, the powerful LXT batteries lasted throughout my testing, and still have plenty of charge -- very impressive, given the batteries aren't all that big. Makita's added a handy battery indicator so you can keep tabs on remaining charge. As a leftie, I had no problems operating this saw and still being able to watch my cut -- something righties always take for granted, but a definite issue for lefthanders with some tool brands. The weight & blance were good, and I didn't experience any hand or arm fatigue. The only issue I had with this Makita saw: a machine screw used for attaching the dust nozzle was missing, and vendor never sent a replacement -- something that shouldn't happen with a tool in this price range (hint hint, Makita). But I was able to find a suitable replacement at home, so it didn't impact my overall rating. An excellent, well-built circular saw with more than ample cordless power... I highly recommend this offering from Makita.

The usual Makita quality...
This circular is powerful, smooth, and accurate. This is my second Makita circular saw. I got it in a kit special with the rapid dual charger, and 4 batteries. It comes with a big soft case, and a dust port. The saw has excellent controls. There is an LED that turns on when you squeeze the trigger. It illuminates the work area and this is visible even from the left side. There is a power indicator for the 2 batteries on the top of the saw body to check the status of the batteries, because the ones on the batteries are not visible when installed in the saw. The shoe, guard and sliding cover are magnesium. There is a selector with presets at 22.5, 45 and 56 degree bevels. There is a set screw in the shoe to adjust the 90 degree position. The only minor issue I found is a small amount of play in the shoe hinge at the front. I minimized this with a thin washer between the parts. This saw cuts through 2 by 4s like butter. Great saw!

This is a great circular saw. Even with dual 18v Li-on batteries it isn't too heavy to wield with one arm. Plenty of power and it lasts on my worksite for a couple of days without the need to recharge. The cut is smooth and it is very easy to change the angle and depth. I've had it less than a month. Be sure to add this item during your purchase to get the extra free batteries (July 2020) - https://www.homedepot.com/p/Makita-18-Volt-LXT-Lithium-Ion-High-Capacity-Battery-Pack-5-0Ah-with-LED-Charge-Level-Indicator-2-Pack-BL1850B-2/206609332

This makita saw is a substantial cordless saw. I also have a milwaukee saw which is much lighter but it only has one battery vs this saw that takes two. The kit comes with a bag and a two battery charger. The charger is pretty big but has to be to fit both batteries. I thought it was comfortable to hold and its easy to see the blade when making a cut.

I liked this saw enough to add another battery tech to my current platform. As far as cordless tools go, I have A LOT of them, and they are of the same red brand so I can share batteries and chargers between them. However I've never been that impressed with a cordless circular saw until I used this one. Even though I now have another type of battery to deal with and charger to lug around, I think it's worth it. This saw is every bit as powerful as my corded sidewinder. It can't quite match my Mag 77, but not many things can. I really like that the motor adjusts speed and torque application based on what I'm cutting and feed rate. This makes it very smooth and predictable. I also really like the electric brake so I don't need to wait for the saw to spin down to drop it, and the XPT tech means I can finish those last couple of cuts in the rain without worrying about damaging the saw. The charger provided in the kit actually charges both batteries at once; not one at a time like many other dual chargers do. The soft case is a welcomed addition over blow molded plastic and I will actually use it. Another thing I really like is the arbor nut. It takes a standard wrench like other circular saws, but also has a key. Makita included a hex wrench stored securely in the body of the saw instead of the wrench that goes in the foot of the saw and gets lost like all my other saws. Very well designed and honestly this is going to make me consider more Makita tools when looking for future cordless additions
