Nice saw! Reliable, versatile, and powerful.
Nice saw! This lightweight cordless circular saw packs a punch with its 18V LXT Lithium-Ion battery. Perfect for quickly cutting through various materials, making it ideal for DIY projects or professional use. The 6-1/2 inch blade is just right for most cutting tasks, and the LED light illuminates the workpiece in dimly lit areas. The tool is easy to handle and maneuver, making precise cuts a breeze. Overall, a must-have for anyone looking for a reliable, versatile, and powerful cutting tool.

    Great Batteries that Last a Long Time
    I am impressed with how long these 5ah batteries last. If you only have these two you will be able to charge one full before the other ones needs charging.

      Great Somewhat Compact Grinder
      Good grinder paired up with a 5ah battery, not too heavy but wished it had a slightly slanted handle for longer periods.

          gutless
          tried to router out a window but kept shutting off or going super slow and burning the bit. it's appears to be well built with a lot more aluminum and steel instead of plastic. but zero power.

            I love it!
            This Makita oscillating multi-tool is a beast! I went through 2 DeWalt OMT’s prior to this, both within 6 months. The 2nd one died the first day I used it. I liked the trigger on the DeWalt, the Makita is a simple on/off switch, with variable speed selector. But I got used to it within the first day. Actually have come to prefer it - it offers better control. It was worth the switch over - this Makita is 3 times the tool the DeWalt ever was! 3x bulkier and heavier (which I like and prefer), 3x the precision, and 3x more powerful! Feels like I could use this OMT as a hammer, it’s so solid. Hope Makita continues to build all their products heavy duty, as with this tool. It cuts through the side of a house like butter (stucco, plywood, wire, and all). Just love it!! Can’t recommend it enough!

              BATTERY CAUGHT FIRE AND EXPLODED
              DO NOT BUY.. I REPEAT, DO NOT BUY. Had my mother not been home, our entire home would have burned down. The battery was left to charge for the day and our dog started barking when the battery was catching fire. I feel like this should be a lawsuit but want to protect others from having this happen to them. I repeat.. this is really dangerous. My mom threw it outside while it was on fire and a few minutes later it exploded. Had it exploded while she was moving it, it could have really caused serious injuries.

                Good Kit at a Decent Price Point
                Bought this compact combo, which included an extra 2AH Battery. Was looking hard at the Big Red M tool line, but based on more than a few negative comments on the Red Hammer Drill I decided to go with Makita, Besides, I would rather have a Japanese tool over a China tool any day. Both the drill and the impact are very powerful. I like the advanced battery charger system with a chip in the battery and a CPU in the charger to enable a precision charge that optimizes battery charge and health. I like both tools fell solid and run great. I only have a couple of gripes after two days of steady use. First, the light on the tool is located just above the trigger and aims up at the bit. Only problem is that since the light is below the bit, you don’t actually get any light where you need it. The light is very bright, which tends to magnify the darkness of the shadow on top of the bit where you are looking trying to see the screw. The attached pic demonstrates the shadow effect, although this was taken in a well lit garage so the effect is not as pronounced in the photo, but I think you can get the idea. It’s tough to see anything of the top of the bit or screw in darker areas. Makita needs to adopt the three light setup around the face of the tool. Last gripe has to do with the fwd/rev selector switch, which is a standard type switch that you push from right to left for forward and vice versa for reverse. The switch is like butter, which normally would be a good thing. As long as you are running the drill in forward the switch is fine, but I find when I have the drill in reverse the selector switch rides right where my trigger finger wants to ride and with that buttery selector switch, there is a tendency to inadvertantly move the switch to the netural positon or to the forward position as you manipulate the tool. This is a great set for the money, but if I did a lot of work in dark areas the light would be a deal breaker for me, you just can’t see anything without addtional light on the work. If you work in well lit areas or only occasionally work in dark areas it will be fine. The selector switch is something that I will get used to in time. These two gripes warrant the 4 star rating.

                  Combine this multi tool with a 5Amp Battery and it will not let you down! HIGHLY recommend and will absolutely buy again if mine ever breaks. I use this daily for work, cutting subfloor, drywall, and other miscellaneous things for work and I always know I can count on my multi-tool. Easy to use. Easy to understand. Has six different power modes set in the side- super easy to learn. I love it.

                  Purchased this xrj01z saw over the traditional xrj04x. Removed it from the box and installed a Diablo bimetal 6inch blade for cutting wood and nails. Started cutting through an old floor joist and the blade guide broke. Home Depot was gracious and allowed me to return it and upgrade to the xrj04x. The xrj01z, in my experience, is more of a light duty tool. This would be good for cutting PVC and other light application materials. I own several (6) makita tools and this is the only one I've ever had an issue with. The xrj04x is running like a champ on the demo. I have not lost faith in Makita, but this was not a good tool for moderate to heavy use applications YEMV.

                      XT333X1 - True Review
                      This was purchased during the 2018 Black Friday Deal and it came with x4 BL1850 batteries (separate packaging) I have been using this kit for over a year now and it has standed to everything I could have expected. Pros: Durability, Brushless, Power, Quite, Lightweight, different options of batteries Cons: Only a single bay charger - obviously this is a stretch for the price but being that this comes with x6 batteries but only 1 charger port makes swapping out batteries more important and having to take breaks to charge the batteries is a little annoying. XDT13Z This is the workhorse for me doing any driving and screwing things in. It has multiple speed and is the most important tool in the bag XPH12Z This does wonders with out stopping. Ive cut up to 4" holes with this thing with ease. XSH03Z - This cut wood and plywood with ease, I have not cut anything else using this saw so I cannot review it on other matierals but could not image that having another blade would make much of a difference. DC18RC Only bad part is it comes with a single bay charger. I would recommend this to anyone that is interested in a Makita kit. This is a brushless line at a brushed price.

                        Let me say that I have many Makita Products and not a single one ever let me down. This saw was the first Makita product I returned because the saw is way under powered. I bought the saw because i needed a saw without cable and small enough to get in tide spaces to cut nails on pallets. I put a 5 amp battery on the saw from my Makita circular saw and the battery was good but the saw even if I used a high quality blade never made it to the nails in the pallets. The saw also gets really hot to a point were I was not able to hold it anymore. If you cut some PVC pipe or copper pipes this saw will fit you but not if you try to take some wood apart. You will need a cable driven saw or the larger battery Makita Reciprocating saw.

                          Got these on clearance. Perfect size and run time. They are the same size as the 3.0Ah ones but with a longer run time. Note: They will not work with older Makita tools that don't have the star on the battery receiver or yellow receiver and don't support the safety features of the newer batteries. Check the notches. Will not work with the bigger notch.

                          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.

                          Lightweight with no sacrifice of power. Long lasting battery, the kind of tool that makes me want to switch all of my battery operated tools to Makita. Excellent product at a low price point. Perfect for tight spaces!

                          terrible customer service and awful tool.
                          Purchased this sawzall with a brushless kit about a year and a half ago. Few days ago the sawzall blade holder just fell off while cutting some 1 by 1 wood. both set screws just snapped off. Not the quality I'd expect from Makita which I have been using for 15 years. Called customer service and they told.me without a receipt I'm just out of luck. I'll just switch to Milwaukee.

                            I had the 2.0ah that came with the drill which did great. But these are amazing. I have yet to have a project that I have ran these 5ah to even half. I wish I would have bought them a long time ago. I love the push bottom power indicator. The 5ah are only 1/2 longer than the 2ah batteries and the weight difference is minimal.
