    Comments about 18V Cordless LXT Lithium-Ion 6-1/2 in. Circular Saw (Bare Tool):

    Overall - It's a MAKITA! I've used their products with great results. BSS610 Circular Saw is small, light and handy - a great 'go-to' saw for all but most demanding work a DIYer encounters. Addition of LED for the work surface is a plus... BUT, I MUST give it a 'DING' for a very silly and potentially dangerous omission .... A DUST NOZZLE! On more than one occasion, I've had dust particles fly back into my face and eyes - regardless of my position in relation to the dust port. Thank GOD I had safety glasses on!! The omission of such a relatively minor part from Makita boggles the mind... I'd consider this an essential part of a 'bare tool'.... Model #611 - which does not have a LED, includes a dust nozzle!

      Comments about 18V Cordless LXT Lithium-Ion 6-1/2 in. Circular Saw (Bare Tool):

      I was worried this saw might not be powerfull enough for the framing - I was wrong. I love the built in light and ease of adjustments of the saw and use it far more often than my saw with a cord.

          Comments about 18V Cordless LXT Lithium-Ion 6-1/2 in. Circular Saw (Bare Tool):

          I work in construction mostly remodeling Baths and Kitchens... This little saw has handled everything i've thrown at it, which includes continuously stressing the tool to the max almost every day... I'm specifically impressed with the power, durability and ergonomics. So far, its the best cordless saw i've used. I would like to see them replace all the plastic adjustment knobs with metal though, specifically the blade depth knob if nothing else.

          Warranty Information

          Makita LXT Lithium-ion Tool Warranty

          The Makita LXT Lithium-ion Warranty applies to both new and factory-reconditioned Makita tools. Every Makita ® 18V and 14.4V LXT Lithium-Ion Industrial Power Tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. If you are not satisfied with Makita 18V and 14.4V LXT Lithium-Ion tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide a replacement or refund. Every Makita 18V and 14.4V LXT Lithium-Ion tool is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of THREE YEARS from the date of original purchase. The Makita LXT Lithium-ion battery has a limited one-year warranty. Should any trouble develop during the three-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 our option, replace) without charge. This warranty does not apply to Makita Accessories, like flashlights.

          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 three-year term of this warranty.

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.
