    Makita’s XPS01PTJ 18V X2 (36V) LXT Cordless 6-1/2'' Plunge-Cut Circular Saw Kit delivers precise, accurate cutting without the hassle of a cord. It glides along the included guide rail to produce arrow-straight cuts with minimal tear-out. It combines a powerful brushless motor powered by two included 18V LXT® batteries with Automatic Speed Change™ Technology, which adjusts cutting speed and torque during the cut for optimum performance. The saw has a variable speed control dial (2,500 to 6,300 RPM), with soft start and an electric brake. It has a large 2-3/16'' depth of cut at 90°, with a bevel cut range of -1° to 48° and positive stops at 22.5° and 45°. Star Protection Computer Controls™ allow the tool and battery to exchange data to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating. Compatible with Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery.
