For years we have had to suffer with cordless saws that were so underpowered we wondered why we even bothered lugging them around—because they were convenient, that’s why.

I am excited to announce that Makita has joined in on the giveaway fun and is offering up their brand new 18V X2 (36-volt) 7-1/4-inch Cordless Circular Saw for this month's giveaway. This saw gives you the power of a corded saw with the portability of a cordless by using two 18V batteries to give you a total of 36-volts of power. The added power that this saw offers also allows it to use a standard 7-1/4-inch saw blade rather than a typical 6 or 6-1/2-inch blade.
