The new 18V X2 LXT® (36V) Brushless Cordless 9-1/4” Circular Saw (XSH10Z) delivers up to 110 cross cuts in 3 x 12 oak using two 5.0Ah LXT® Lithium-Ion Batteries.

February 18, 2020, La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc., the innovation leader in power tools and accessories, has released a new 18V X2 LXT® (36V) Brushless Cordless 9-1/4” Circular Saw, Tool Only (XSH10Z).  This circular saw comes with a compatible base for Makita® Guide Rails (sold separately) and Auto-Start Wireless System (AWS) capability for efficient dust management.
The XSH10Z delivers up to 110 crosscuts in 3x12 oak using two 5.0Ah LXT® Batteries (sold separately). The XSH10Z has an increased cutting capacity, ideal for ripping and cross cutting larger beams, boards, and forms. The cutting capacity at 90° is 3-3/8”, 1-3/4” at 60°, and 2-3/8” at 45°. The Makita-built BL Brushless Motor delivers 4,500 RPM for maximum performance.
The combination of rail compatibility and depth of cut makes the XSH01Z ideal for fine finishing and specialty cuts such as doors, exterior decks, rough engineered lumber, and recycled timber.
The XSH10Z is compatible with various Makita Guide Rails (sold separately), no adapter needed, for accurate ripping. The optional guide rails provide perfect, dead-on straight or bevel cutting.
Other features include an electric brake for maximum productivity, a soft start for smooth start-ups, an all-metal rip fence, dual L.E.D. lights, rotating rear dust nozzle, and rubberized soft grip handle for increased comfort. A die-cast magnesium base, blade guard and blade cover provide a lightweight, durable design.
Auto-Start Wireless System (AWS)
AWS uses Bluetooth® technology for wireless power-on and power-off communication between the equipped tool and dust extractor. Once connected via AWS, the AWS-equipped dust extractor will automatically power on or off when the AWS-equipped cordless tool starts or stops, running only when the tool is in use. This increases productivity on a single charge and reduces continuous noise at the job or work site. AWS is activated with an AWS Wireless Transmitter (198901-5, sold separately). 
LXT Cordless Advantage
The Makita LXT Cordless System, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries, provides users with the most advanced, durable, and dependable 18V products. Four key components work together to create the LXT Advantage: fast-charging LXT Batteries, a Rapid Optimum Charger, industry-leading brushless motors, and Star Protection Computer Controls™. 
Makita 18V LXT 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.
