Great little (but Tough) saw
This is a great tool for work up in the air and when you just don't want to stretch out an extension cord. I used it it to trim bracing up in the trusses and also to cut up a pallet in a remote part of the work site. I dropped this saw from the top of an eight foot step latter and it "Took the Lickin and kept on Tickin"

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.

Great little saw, very handy to have cordless and good battery life. Combine that with Makita's quick charging batteries, it works out great.

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 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.

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.

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!
Does this saw include a blade and rip guide?
Woody on May 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: yes it does
Is this saw available with the blade on the right?
Lilburn 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
Why is the right hand version so much higher than the left?
