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.
Q & A :
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."
