Nice little saw lots of guts powers thru wet white pine yellow pine and easy to make accurate fast clean cuts

Pros

Way better than my 30 year old corded
Clean and square cuts, but a new blade always helps. Especially good when you need to make smaller cuts in various areas. As any cordless tool you'll drain the battery quickly if you use it continuously-but no big deal as they charge quickly
Especially nice is table and adjustment that allows accurate mitres and rigid square cuts wihtout second guessing the settings.

I am wanting to know if this Makita saw (Model#: MKTNBSS611Z)will work with this battery (Model#: MKTNBL1815) Makita BL1815 LXT 18V 1.5 Ah Compact Lithium-Ion Battery
Ethan on Sep 27, 2013
BEST ANSWER: No, the 1.5 amp/hour batteries will not fit, because of a metal tab in the tool, specifically placed to prevent this use. Use the 3.0 amp hour batteries or greater. Why? Although the voltage is the same, the smaller 1.5 a/h battery will drain much faster, overheat, and could damage the battery. How do I know? Because I have done this. The battery will stop taking a full charge.
what is the difference between bss611z and the bss610z saw other than 1 is saw only the other is a kit
Sean on Dec 3, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The bss610z has a built in dust blower and an led light and the 611 does not have either.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-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.

Each Makita Lithium‐Ion Power Tool, Battery and Charger is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of THREE YEARS from the date of original purchase. Should any trouble develop during the three‐year period for the Lithium‐Ion Power Tool, Battery and/or Charger, return the COMPLETE Power Tool, Battery and/or Charger, 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.

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.
