Makita BSS611Z
2 Star Review  productwiki.com - Nov 9, 2010

The Makita BSS611 is a compact & lightweight cordless circular trim-saw kit with an ergonomically-designed handle with a soft grip that provides a better fit and even greater control. Weighing 6.9 lbs, the Makita BSS611 circular saw kit is an upgrade from the Makita BSS610. The Makita BSS611 saw kit features a 3,700 RPM motor with a 6-1/2” carbide-tipped blade that cuts up to 2-1/4” (versus 2”) at 90 degrees. In addition, the BSS611 circular saw kit includes an LXT Lithium-ion battery that produces 430% (versus 280%) total lifetime work with 2.5x (versus 2x) more cycles. The Makita BSS611 saw kit also boasts a built-in dust blower that enhances line of sight and keeps the work place clean, a 30-minute rapid charger with a built-in fan to cool the battery, and a built-in LED light for a more illuminated work space. The Makita BSS611 retails for $499.99 and comes with a ... PROS: (1) runs for a long time on a battery charge, generally wont run out before youre done for the day (2) built light for easy handling and cuts fast (3) provides dead-on accurate cut lines ... CONS: (1) lacks a blade brake, need to let it run down on its own for a few seconds (2) comes with a 16 tooth blade rather than the 24 tooth that many comparable saws have (3) lacks the power of a corded saw, can choke as flexible wood is cut and pinches the blade (4) unable to cut at an angle, can only handle perfectly straight lines

Great Saw!
5 Star Review   By Bill on Home Depot - May 21, 2013   

I have used a lot of Circular saws over the year, but this one is by far the best. It is very easy to control and super smooth. I used it last weekend to cut beadboard panels and all the cuts were perfect. For 3/4" Marine Plywood, use the 16T blade that comes with it... But for everything else, get a 24T or 40T blade. I like the Diablo blades myself. You will not be disappointed with this saw!

beautifully designed and lightweight
5 Star Review   Home Depot   

For $99 you can't go wrong, this saw is not only precise but with sturdy feeling, yet lightweight at the same time. It really comes in handy when needing to use outside where dragging extension cords would be a pain and hassle. I deff recommend!

great value for a great circular saw
5 Star Review   By handyjoe on Home Depot - Jan 10, 2013   

Have only used this on a few projects and I love it. It has plenty of power and battery life. Used it to cut floor joists and the battery lasted into the afternoon. This is a simple, lightweight saw that does all I need a circular to do and comes with rip fence. Am in the process of converting from another manufacturer after they went to the (alleged) 20volt max . There is no comparison in quality between the two.

Be aware your old 1815 batteries won't work for it
4 Star Review   By JoeEE on Home Depot - Sep 2, 2012   

This product uses 1830 batteries, which are close. But your old 1815 batteries won't work! Kind of frustrating after we got it home.

Great Saw!!
5 Star Review   By Rich on Home Depot - Aug 20, 2012   

Light weight, powerful and quite. Great saw, works to perfection. Highly recommended. You will want to have two batteries, if doing a lot of cuts. The battery lasted over 30 minutes and recharged in 20 minutes, so it was good I had 2 batteries and could keep right on working.

Cuts like butter
5 Star Review   By darkn3ss on Home Depot - May 16, 2012   

I bought this saw because I already had Makita LXT Lithium-Ion 18-Volt Cordless 2-Tool Combo Kit Model # LXT218 and was able to use the same battery that came with the drills. I will say that this saw cuts like butter. It has a more that enough power to cut what I need. The blade out of the box is very sharp. The only thing that I wish it had was a bag or case, other than that, 5 stars!!

Great circle saw.
5 Star Review   By Me22 on Home Depot - Apr 3, 2012   

First I bougth a R**** cordless circle saw. It cuts okay in pine but stops whenever I hit a knot and cutting depth is only 1-9/16". It cuts thru a 2x4 but very slowly and stops a lot. A disappionting saw. Then I purchased the Makita. What a difference. This saw cuts thru everything I want it to including 2x4 and faster than the R****. The depth of cut is 2¼". I have three (3) other Makita drills/hole shooters so I can use the same batteries. The Makita is like a BMW and the "other" is like a KIA. I highly recommend this saw.

5 Star Review   By clebrown on Home Depot - Mar 20, 2012

Great product but be warned!
4 Star Review   By MUTigers1 on Home Depot - Jan 24, 2012   

This unit does not easily accept the 1.5 ah batteries, only the 3.0 ah batteries. This should have been addressed in the description. You can easily modify the saw to accept these batteries however they should make that more clear. I don't know why they would require the 3.0's unless they want to sell more batteries or are afraid you would be dissapointed with the battery life of a 1.5 ah on this saw. Otherwise, the saw is exactly what I expected from Makita (quality).

Good product, will need to buy a battery though
4 Star Review   By Tony on Home Depot - Dec 6, 2011   

It is a great value for the price, works well. But if you already have the drill and driver, those bateries do not work on the saw. Though the bigger battery you need to purchase will work on the drill and driver. Would have given it 5 stars if the battery info was available somewhere.

seems pretty sturdy
4 Star Review   By ralph on Home Depot - Oct 4, 2011   

light weight,and easy to use. i never operated a saw with the blade on the left side but it works out well. you can see the line without having to do the look around over the saw. it seems to use the batteries a little fast but on the bright side the charge fast

Great Tool and Light weight
5 Star Review   By thenodnarb on Home Depot - Feb 5, 2011   

I already had the makita Li-Ion drill and wanted the circular saw for a long time. I was excited to see they sold the tool only online. I used it for the first time a few days ago and couldn't be happier. It ships with a blade, is easy to adjust, is light weight and is just a joy to use. One thing to note, it does not allow the use of the "compact" 1.5Ah batteries like the drill kit comes with. You MUST use the 3.0Ah battery. The 3 amp battery can also be used on your makita drill however. These tools Rock. The batteries are MUCH lighter and the tools in general are much lighter than other brands. The batteries can go a very long time without really discharging, they charge SUPER fast (15 min/30min depending on battery size) so I have never been in a situation where I couldn't work because I was waiting for batteries to charge. I use my tools all day long so these features where important to me. Absolutely worth the money.
