Item #

Whether you take it to the jobsite, the backyard, the tool shed or the shop, Makita's cordless/brushless slider lets you cut where you like, without a second thought for where the outlet is. Powered by two 18V Lithium-Ion batteries for 36V power and performance (batteries and charger sold separately), the Makita XSL06Z has an efficient brushless motor that provides up to 50% longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life. Up to 4,400 RPM ensures fast, efficient cutting, while Automatic Speed Change™ technology adjusts the cutting speed and torque under load for optimal performance. The XSL06Z has a unique sliding system with two stacked rails that extend forward rather than backward. This results in a reduced overall footprint and means that the saw can be operated when positioned against a wall, a far more space-efficient design. The saw has a vertical cutting capacity of 5-1/4'' and can cut crown molding up to 6-5/8'' when nested diagonally. It can also crosscut a 2x12 at 90°. The saw miters 0° to 60° left and right, with positive stops at 0°, 15°, 22.5°, 31.6°, 45° and 60° (left or right). The bevel lock is located in the front of the saw for easy access and quick adjustments from 0° to 48° (left and right). The direct-drive gearbox with soft start enables smoother start-ups and consistent power with no belts to slip or replace. The electric brake quickly brings the blade to a stop after the trigger is released. Additional features include a high-quality carbide-tipped blade, built-in laser that shows the line-of-cut, and improved dust collection capability for use with a bag (included) or vacuum (sold separately).
