      Comments about Factory Reconditioned Makita BSS611Z-R 18V Cordless LXT Lithium-Ion 6-1/2-in Circular Saw (Tool Only):

      I have endlessly used and abused this little saw since I got it. Framing, masonry, heavy timber, anything under 2 1/4" depth of cut. I had always believed that these tools were only a last resort machine, between the Li- Ion batteries and Makita's engineering, my corded saws (7 1/4" direct and worm drive, 16" beam saw) only come out of the car on big jobs and big timber. For training people how to safely use a circular saw this saw is perfect. If you haven't tried a cordless saw in a few years, borrow this tool, then buy one.

        I use this saw just about every (work) day, it has an impressive run time with the LXT batteries. The compact design helps get in to tight spaces, and the light weight make it easy to use all day.

          I have Milwaukee and craftsman cordless saws and they don't hold a candle to the Makita, Some of this may be due to milwaukees poor battery design but I built a 35 amp dc transformer to power it and it still wouldn't cut. The craftsman can't cut 4" in 1/2" plywood before stalling out even with the lithium battery system. The Makita cuts like a corded saw. I hate wasting money on tools that don't work. Any body want my craftsman or Milwaukee tools? I still use my 30 year old Milwaukee corded tools because they were built right and in America. Can't say that about the new tools. I now am looking to complete my tool box with all the Makita cordless line. They're expensive but worth it. I got what I paid for finally!

            Comments about Factory Reconditioned Makita BSS611Z-R 18V Cordless LXT Lithium-Ion 6-1/2-in Circular Saw (Tool Only):

            Contrary to other reviews, you cannot attach the BL 1815 battery unless you make unauthorized alterations to the battery. It takes the BL 1830 or BL 1840 to provide enough "juice" to power this tool. There are now 6.5in blades available to perform thin-kerf and fine cuts in plywood veneer, etc that make a cordless saw all the more appealing.

              I bought this saw because of its light weight and left sided blade. It will rip the length of a pine 2x4 with little difficulty. The angle and depth adjustments are simple and allow for accurate cutting. There is a depth scale on the blade guard which is quite convenient for setting the depth of cut. It's much more convenient than hauling out the extension cord and is powerful enough for most cutting.

              New Vs. Reconditioned

              Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.

              • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
              • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
              • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee;
                New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.

              Warranty Information

              Makita Standard Warranty

              The Makita Standard Warranty applies to both new and factory-reconditioned Makita tools. Every Makita tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. If you are not satisfied with any Makita tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide a replacement or refund. Each Makita tool is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of ONE YEAR from the date of original purchase. Should any trouble develop during this one-year period, return the COMPLETE tool, freight prepaid, to one of Makita's Factory or Authorized Service Centers.

              If inspection shows the trouble is caused by defective workmanship or material, Makita will repair (or at its option, replace without charge).

              This Warranty does not apply where:
              • Repairs have been made or attempted by others
              • Repairs are required because of normal wear and tear
              • The tool has been abused, misused or improperly maintained
              • Alterations have been made to the tool
              In no event shall Makita be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages from the sale or use of the product. This disclaimer applies to both during and after the term of this warranty. Makita disclaims liability for any implied warranties, including implied warranties of "merchantability" and "fitness" for a specific purpose, after the one-year term of this warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
