You can frame with this thing
This saw is awesome! it's super smooth, light, and powerful enough to crank through 2X lumber without a problem. Now, I wouldn't go frame all day with this saw if I had power nearby and a wormdrive in the truck. But if you had to, you totally could. The convenience of this thing for pickup framing and exterior or even very select interior trim jobs is amazing. We finally have enough technology for a single battery circular saw to be a very reasonable thing in your kit.

Great little saw
I bought this to replace a Milwaukee after all the batteries had lost their ability to take a full charge, and I wish the batteries had failed earlier. This saw is far more powerful, lightweight and nimble. Expensive but worth it.

Just Awesome!
Knowing how refined this saw is I would pay hundreds more to get one if that was the cost. Priced as is it is a complete bargain. This saw is powerful yet it is so well designed, with the braking and light weight, that it would be much more difficult to injure yourself with this saw than any other I have seen. I love this saw and I sometimes find myself creating work just to use it. My current favorite tool. It is just awesome!

My favorite saw
No cord and light weight help make my cuts more accurate. I can cut up a wall or overhang on a roof and watching the front guide is spot on.

Will the 4.0 battery fit this saw
Abel on Feb 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Abel,
Yes, provided you are talking about the Makita 18volt 4.0 battery. It
will fit fine and work exceptionally well. As I shared before, due to
an auto accident, I am permanently disabled, requiring a walker to get
around. This Makita saw is so light I can use it with no fear of
tripping over extension cords or anything else. I really like this saw
and I am sure you will too. Take care.
Is this saw compatible with the 5 amp hour battery?
Who cut the cord? on Jul 18, 2016
