18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 5-7/8" Metal Cutting Saw
Catalog (SKU) Number: MK-XSC02Z
Automatic Speed Change™ technology adjusts cutting speed and torque during cut for optimum performance. Large cutting capacity (2-1/4” at 90°) allows for 2" conduit to be cut in a single pass. BL™ Motor delivers 3,900 RPM for faster cutting. The BL™ Brushless Motor eliminates carbon brushes, enabling the BL™ Motor to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life. Efficient BL™ Brushless motor is electronically controlled to optimize battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per charge. The electronically-controlled BL™ Brushless Motor efficiently uses energy to match torque and RPM to the changing demands of the application. Cuts a wide range of metals including Unistrut®, all thread, channel, conduit, pipe, sheet metal, square tubing, steel and more. Can be used with Makita 5-3/8" metal cutting blades. Compact and ergonomic design at only 13-1/8" long. Weighs only 6.4 lbs. with battery (battery not included) for reduced operator fatigue. Soft grip handles provide increased comfort on the job. Electric brake for maximum productivity. Dual L.E.D. lights illuminates the work area. Stainless steel base reduces chip build-up to prevent surface damage. Equipped with Star Protection Computer Controls™ to protect against overloading, over-discharging and over-heating. Rapid Optimum Charger communicates with the battery's built-in chip throughout the charging process to optimize battery life by actively controlling current, voltage and temperature (battery and charger sold separately). Rapid Optimum Charger has a built-in fan to cool the battery for faster, more efficient charging (battery and charger sold separately).
