Makita Cordless Circular Saw - 18V Power at a 12V Weight.

The BSS611Z has a few less features than the BSS610Z, which is reflected by its less expensive cost. If you are not looking for some of the Bells and Whistles that the other Lithium-ion Cordless Circular Saw has, then this is a great compact saw for the money. This circular saw is the same saw that is contained in the Makita Combo Kits. Its compact design at only 13-3/8" in length and weighs only 6.9 lbs (when you add battery which is not included), for less operator fatigue.

This model does not feature the LED cutting guide or the blade brake. See the Makita BSS610Z for the same saw with those additional features.

The BSS611Z includes:

  • Makita 18V 6-1/2" LXT Cordless Circular Saw (Bare Tool)
  • (1) D-26624 Circular Saw Blade
  • (Batteries and charger sold separately)

Tech Specs:

  • Blade Diameter: 6-1/2"
  • Arbor: 5/8"
  • No Load Speed: 3,700 RPM
  • Maximum Cutting Depth: 90° - 2-1/4", 45° - 1-9/16", 50° - 1-7/16"
  • Watt Hours: 54.0
  • Battery(Ah): 3.0
  • Length: 13-5/8"

Battery Warning
By gary from Texas on January 5, 2012
Be aware that this saw requires the Makita 3.0 amp-hr battery. If you have drill using the standard 1.5 amp-hr battery, you can't power this drill with the same unit.
Nobody lists a warning about the battery requirement!

Merchant Response:
The 1.5 AH Lithium-Ion Battery (BL1815) was developed for the Compact (Black/White) line of LXT. It has 1/2 the "run time" of our 3.0 Amp Hour Battery (BL1830).

As shown in the Tech Specs, use the 3.0 Amp Hour Battery (BL1830) for he LXT products (Teal/Black) for high RPM tools like grinders, circular saws, etc
