Makita Adds LXSL01 Miter Saw That Requires Less Maintenance with the Same Power
posted on by
Makita LXSL01 Compound Miter Saw Makita's LXSL01 Compound Miter Saw requires very little maintenance and works with Makita's line of rechargeable batteries.

One of the latest additions to its 18-volt LXT Lithium-Ion lineup is Makita’s LXSL01 Cordless 7-1⁄2" Dual Slide Compound Miter Saw. Weighing in at 27.5 pounds, the LXSL01 has a 2,200 rpm motor with a direct-drive gearbox, which Makita says will entail less maintenance than belt-drive models. The LXSL01 miters 0° to 47° left and 0° to 57° right; bevels 0° to 45° left and 0° to 5° right; and it has positive miter stops at nine settings, ranging from 0° to 45° left and right. One of over 40 tools that will run off the same 18-volt LXT lithium-ion battery, the LXSL01 has 2-1⁄16" vertical capacity and will crosscut 11-3⁄4" at 90°. In 2011, it retailed for approximately $600.
