Makita, a pioneer in brushless motor technology and battery innovation, has combined both areas of expertise in the 36V (18V X2) LXT® Brushless 7-1/2" Compound Miter Saw (tool only). It's powered by two 18V Lithium-Ion batteries for 36V power and performance, but without leaving the 18V LXT® platform. In addition, the efficient BL™ Brushless Motor delivers 5,700 RPM for fast cutting, and the exclusive Automatic Speed Change™ technology adjusts cutting speed and torque for optimum performance under load.
This innovative cordless miter saw is an ideal cutting solution for room-to-room applications, making it a “must have” for remodelers, flooring contractors, cabinet installers, case and base installers, and more.
It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion series, the world’s largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. 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.
For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created Star Protection Computer Controls™. Star Protection is communication technology that allows the Star Protection-equipped tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita 18V LXT® and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
