The Makita BSS610 is a compact & lightweight cordless circular trim-saw kit with an ergonomically-designed handle with a soft grip that provides a better fit and even greater control. Weighing 7.1 lbs, the Makita BSS610 circular saw kit is an upgrade from the Makita BSS501. The Makita BSS610 saw kit features a 3,700 (versus 3600) RPM motor with a 6-1/2” (versus 5-3/8”) carbide-tipped blade that cuts up to 2-1/4” (versus 2”) at 90 degrees. In addition, the BSS610 circular saw kit includes an LXT Lithium-ion battery that produces 280% total lifetime work with 2x more cycles. The Makita BSS610 saw kit also boasts a built-in dust blower that enhances line of sight and keeps the work place clean, a 45-minute (versus 25-minute) rapid charger for less down time, and a built-in LED light for a more illuminated work space.
