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

      The saw arrived with a loose blade and I was unable to tighten it because the shaft lock would not engage. Couldn't use it at all - I have scheduled an exchange and will know better how I feel about the saw. However Makita should never have shipped this out without checking it thoroughly since it is reconditioned. CPO was great and did not give any grief - they easily arranged the exchange

            This re-conditioned saw looks as good as one off a store's shelf. The folks that work at the facility do an awesome job in their restoration effort. Makita makes great products and this place does a great job with customer satisfaction.

              I am a professional stair builder,working in the construction industry for 40+ years.
              Had a Dewalt cordless saw once,thought it was junk.it vibrated so bad that you could not get a decent cut.
              Don't get me wrong,this will not replace your worm drive saws,but for light duty work,you will love it.
              Smouth cuts and well balanced.
              Only complaint I have is the trigger safety.its difficult to operate.
              Well worth the price if it lasts 30 years like my worm drive saws!!

                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

                • A:

                  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.

              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.

              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.
