It 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.Increased Cutting EfficiencyThe XSL01Z features a Makita-built motor that delivers 2,200 RPM, with a direct-drive gearbox for increased cutting efficiency and less maintenance than belt drive models. The saw has a four steel rail sliding system that increases rigidity and four linear ball bearings to produce smooth, dead-on accurate cuts right out of the box. 11-3/4-Inch Crosscut CapacityThe saw has 2-1/16-inch vertical capacity and will crosscut 11-3/4 inches at 90 degrees. The XSL01Z miters 0-47 degrees left and 0-57 degrees right, and bevels 0-45 degrees left and 0-5 degrees right. It has positive miter stops at nine settings: 0, 15, 22.5, 30, and 45 degrees (left and right). It will cut a two-by-eight at 45 degrees and a two-by-twelve at 90 degrees. Additional features include an electric brake for maximum productivity, a large aluminum base that supports large stock for efficient cutting and a soft grip handle for increased comfort on the job.
