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 is a key point of difference.
Direct drive enables smoother Start-ups and consistent, constant power with no belts to slip or replace. Additional features include a built-in laser that indicates the line-of-cut, dual dust collection ports for excellent dust extraction performance and an electric brake provides added convenience. It also has a large-sized aluminum base that improves the stability of cutting stock for more efficient cutting. The XSL08Z includes a 12 60T Carbide-Tipped Max Efficiency Miter Saw Blade.
The thin-kerf design provides smoother cuts with less drag on the motor and minimal material loss. Compared to standard blades the Max Efficiency Miter Saw Blade delivers up to 100% faster cutting. Its part of Makitas expanding 18V Lithium-Ion system, the worlds largest cordless tool system powered by 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries. Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.
Powered by two LXT batteries X2 LXT technology delivers more power, speed and run time without the hassles of a cord (batteries not included). Auto-Start Wireless System (AWS) utilizes Bluetooth technology for wireless power-on/off communication between tool and optional dust extractor AWS capable with Auto-Start Wireless Transmitter part no. The Brushless Motor eliminates carbon brushes, enabling the BL Motor to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life. Automatic Speed Change technology adjusts cutting speed and torque during cut for optimum performance. X2 LXT technology delivers up to 175 cuts per charge in 2x12 SPF lumber using two 5.0Ah batteries (batteries not included).
Unique 2-Steel Rail Sliding System design offers single slide-glide operation reduced saw footprint allows operation flush against a wall. In-front bevel lock for convenient operation.
Dual dust collection ports provide excellent dust extraction performance. Increased capacity for up to 8" crown molding (vertically nested), 6-3/4" baseboard (vertical), and 15 crosscuts at 90°. Miters 0-60° left and right; bevels 0-48° left and right. Positive miter stops at: 0°, 15°, 22.5°, 31.6°, 45°, and 60° left or right. Integrated 5-1/2 tall fence system for increased rigidity and more precise miter and bevel cuts.
Built-in laser clearly indicates line-of-cut whether or not blade is turning; on-off switch and micro-adjustments for precise cutting "left-of-blade" or "right-of-blade". Linear ball bearing system engineered to deliver "dead-on" accurate cuts. Large aluminum base improves stability of material for efficient cutting.
Electric brake for maximum productivity. Direct drive motor for increased cutting efficiency and reduced maintenance. Soft start suppresses start-up reaction for smooth start-ups and longer gear life. Easy one-touch slide lock for convenience.Simple 90º turn-of-the-knob miter angle lock/unlock mechanism. Rubberized soft grip handle provides increased comfort on the job. Clip-on dust hose nozzle for convenient and secure connection. Large extension wings adjust easily for increased material support and stability.
Ergonomic rubberized horizontal D-handle design for better fit and added comfort. See-through blade guard system for greater visibility of blade and line of cut. Gauges on the tool indicate battery charge levels.With batteries (batteries not included). Only use genuine Makita batteries and chargers. Ask all Questions, Thanks for Looking.
