    very sturdy and works very well . If you are looking for a small circular saw this is as good as they get. All the controls are solidly made and feel positive . The baseplate is flat and sturdy ,it always cuts straight .

    The first time I have knocked a star off a MAKITA product of which I own many. It struggled to cut through even 5mm ply and the blade provided is blunt after just a few ply boards. Gone back to using my wired one

    This saw really gets the work done, battery life is great, it powers through timber and there are plenty of 3rd party blades available to suit you needs at lower costs.
    I also picked up some foam pads you would use on furniture feet, stuck them along a straight edge and just like that had myself a track saw for a couple of quid extra.
    Great bit of kit.

    Great tool, wish I’d bought one years ago.

    Used this for a recent loft boarding project with nice results, made the job much faster and gives a professional finish.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersMuch better than my previous model, which was a basement model, the DSS611Z bought in a 6-tool pack combi kit that I had for 5 years and only used occasionally for mostly DIY use (not full time or construction site based).
    That old one came to a sudden halt whilst cutting through an old chipboard 40mm worktop recently, so this new brushless version was my first choice for a replacement.

    Brushless action which means power saving, effortlessly and feels more planted though it is bigger and heavier this is only slightly. I like the LED light and the feel of this new saw.

    I only use 5 & 6ah original Makita batteries which are between 2 & 5 years old. None have over 150 – 200 charges. I have the Makita BTC 04 battery checker tester for monitoring all of my Makita batteries.

    The only gripe for me is that I’m not a first fix/carcassing contractor (DIY’er) so the rafter hook is un-necessary for me, I wished it could be removed, which it probably can but for now I can live with it.

    Cuts like a knife through timber and even has a good dust extraction outlet when attached to my DVC750LZ.

    Has the option to attach 2 fences to it, front and back of the base, though I have not tried this method yet.

    I enjoy looking forward to using this saw and hopefully it’ll last me a lot longer than my old one.

    This is also registered under the 3 year Makita warranty scheme.

    Used to cut the worktops during new kitchen installation, the saw being cordless was light and easy to use, especially useful when cutting out for the sink and hob. You can concentrate on the cutting without having to watch out for the cable . I have in the past tried to do the same with a jig saw this gave far better results . Wish I had bought a finer blade less risk of chipping the worktop.

    Such a good saw. Really accurate, really easy to use, good visibility, batteries last pretty well.. obviously these are sold separately.
    Remember to sign up for the free extended warranty. I bought this as a replacement as my last saw after quite a lot of DIY over a 12 month period, my last one died it was 24 months old, so out of standard warranty and I was unaware of the 3 year extended warranty that Makita offer.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersI’ve not made much use of this so far, but am impressed with how easy it is to use when one is not encumbered by a cable. Many times in the past, I have put off getting out my circular saw because of the cable problem, and instead made a less-good job using a cordless Sawzall . One think this has, which I am not used to is the brake. I’m used to having the blade spin-down instead of jerk and clanging noise when the brake cuts in. I realise this probably adds to the safety, but it seems unnecessary. I’m using this in conjunction with Makita DC18RC charger . As an alternative blade, for finer work, I have a Saxton TCT16560T 165mm x 60t TCT Thin Kerf Cordless Circular Saw Blade .

    Does not have static defence. DO NOT USE WITH EXTRACTION. it will blow the motor and battery

    Golden Review Award: 4 From Our UsersI deliberated for ages before buying this – don’t know how I ever managed without it.
    It knocks the socks off my old corded circular saw – more accurate and much more powerful. The nice thin blade gives a brilliant cut. Its lightweight to handle and makes jobs a breeze.
    If you have already bought in to the Makita 18v LXT battery range and have batteries, then what are you waiting for? If not, maybe it’s time to consider doing so….
    Has become one of my Go To tools.
    Love it !

    hough not as powerful as the 36v model this saw is a vast improvement on the older models of 18v saws that would give up just looking at any timber thicker than an inch.

    great saw though the bed locking spindle isn’t that great a bit loose and not in the best position as it sometimes loosens off when laying it down between cuts.

    Another Makita cordless tool added to the collection. Lightweight but sturdy, no complaints so far.

    This is a huge improvement over a previous Hunter circular saw I had. I use it with the Kreg Accu-Cut and find it lightweight, relatively quiet, precise and conveinient. Would recommend it to anyone. Of course you are limited by battery life which is quite long but not endless.

    Used for roofing. The hanging hook is perfect for the top of a scaff pole. Makita all the way.

    After 2 months of very little light hobby use , gearbox has gone.

    New to power tools. Tried it out on some spare wood and its like a hot knife through butte

    Very lightweight and easy to use. Good value too.
    Purchased a drill with charger and batteries to compliment it !

    A most useful little saw that is man enough for most jobs of a light nature.

    Great that one battery size fits multiple Marita Power Tools. Already bought Battery Powered Angle Grinder from Marita. Looking at buying their planner later this year.

    After a lot of research I decided to buy this one as it can be used with all my other LXT tools and batteries.

    Lightweight compact and a pleasure to use. Wish I’d brought this years ago. First time used I couldn’t feel any resistance whilst cutting through MDF boards. So powerful and a great tool.

    I would recommend this to anyone.

    The light is not worth having as it lights the saw blade and the blade is not easily visible when cutting. The main thing I do not like is all the sawdust being blown all over my legs while using it. This is worse when I had to cut the head of a garage door frame and got the sawdust in my eye’s and face while using it upside down. This is because the saw is made for a left handed person. I only realised this when I put it next to my 110v DeWalt saw. The motor is on the right hand side and would have to completely redesigned and all the ally casting’s changed. I got the saw because I had some other tools that use the same batteries and it was to late to send it back after I found this out.

    Wish I had bought one years ogo
    Cut through the 40mm worktop like butter with a nice clean straight cut 10 out of 10

    Absolutely superb

    I have seen the DeWalt equivalent and i think the Makita is more robust.

    Very clean cuts.
    Thin kerf.
    Light and compact.
    Powerful motor.
    Great run time with 5Ah battery.

    Extra features such as rafter hook, electronic brake and led work light makes this saw an ultimate my go to saw.

    Plus, you can also buy rail guide adapter and use this saw as a track saw.

    Good bit of kit and super powerful but does work through your batteries very quickly because of its powe
