Indispensable
The construction company I work for does a lot of emergency temp work. Boarding up homes and business's after a break in, storm damage or fire. Often there is no power at the site or neighborhood and it can be after hours so support can be limited to non-existent, so cordless tools are a must and this saw does great cutting 2x's and plywood along with the rest of my Makita cordless tools.

Great Saw
Great addition to my power tools. Easily cuts as fast and as powerful as my corded 7 1/4 inch saw. I enjoy the portability and fast saw times.

Great little circular saw
Nothing but good things to say about this little saw. Rips through 2x material like a full size corded saw. Very pleased. Nice addition to my cordless Makita collection.

Great Little Saw
For someone who just likes to build in his garage its perfect. Cuts cleanly and quickly, and its very light so its easy to control. I haven't really used it for any serious construction jobs since I mostly just like to build stuff on my spare time, but for DIYers its a solid saw.

6.5 inch cordless circular saw ... Makita
I'm not the sharpest machete in the shed. My battery platform(s) are all over the place. Bosch, Milwaukee, Makita ... even a few Yellow Crack 'n Decker (DeWalt).

However, we run, mostly, Makita and Milwaukee ... both are quite good.

Picked this up ... already having several of both Makita and Milwaukee.

The only reason that it was given a three, is that most of our other cordless circular saws are brushless, whether Milwaukee Fuel, or Makita ... so, this little guy seemed a little on the underpowered side. However, comparing it to most brushed cordless stuff ... it's actually quite good. So, my rating really should have been a four, but I made my mind up for it to be a three.... That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Does this saw include a blade and rip guide?
Woody on May 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: yes it does
Does this cordless circular saw come with a hard plastic case that you can purchase or a Makita bag that you can purchase for storing?
Lisa on Jun 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This item does not come with a storage bag. You can purchase model # MKTN821552-6 plastic case that the saw fill fit into.
Does this saw have LED, Dust blower, Electric brake? Web site shows manual to be the one for both the BSS610 and BSS611 (884641D933 BSS611-1 at bottom of page 36). That manual points out differences between the 610 and 611, but does not mention the 02Z. Which apply to the XSS02Z?
hey on Dec 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hello "Hey";
Good eyes! According to a Makita Team response (dated Nov 2014) to a similar question on another site, those three features are precisely the ones that the 610 has, but the XSS02Z lacks.

Here's the Makita Team quote distinguishing 610 from XSS02Z:
"The Makita 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 6-1/2 in. Circular Saw (Tool-Only) (BSS610Z) is engineered with the following added features: Built in L.E.D. light, Electric Brake, Built-in dust blower. The BSS610Z is also slightly heavier than the XSS02Z at 7.6 pounds."

Thanks!
Is this saw available with the blade on the right?
Jim K on Nov 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Makita makes a 7-1/4 right bladed saw model XSH01Z that is 36v.
Will the 4.0 battery fit this saw
Abel on Feb 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the 4ah battery will fit Makita model XSS02Z

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.

Every Makita® Lithium‐Ion Power Tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. If you are not satisfied with any Makita Lithium‐Ion tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide, at Makita's option, a replacement or refund. 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. 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.
