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

          Should have purchased with the battery. Thought one of my other Makita LXT batteries would fit, but was wrong amperage. I purchased an after market battery and it is working great. I love these cordless tools. Trying to keep it so that I don't have a gazillion batteries and chargers floating around. I am sure I will be purchasing more.

            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.

              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 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. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you many 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.
