Review: Makita XSH01 18V X2 LXT Lithium-Ion (36V) Cordless 7-1/4” Circular Saw
Reviews

One tool that everyone wants to be able to have as cordless, is the circular saw, and cordless multi-kits have been including them for years. But were these cordless circular saws any good? Nope. 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. When Makita announced their new XSH01 18V X2 Circular Saw, they promised us that their saw finally delivered the power and runtime that contractors need. And to make sure it is actually true, they sent us one...

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.

We all know how handy cordless circular saws can be, but we also know that they are usually lacking when it comes to overall power and battery run-time. Makita, continuing to expand their new 2x 18-volt (36V) system, showcased their new 2x Cordless 7-1/4" Circular Saw (XSH01Z) that I am sure addresses some of the cordless circular saw shortcomings that we have all come to know and dislike.

It may not be very well known, but Makita as a worldwide company has a pretty extensive line of outdoor power equipment. Still, I was surprised to see a couple of cordless chainsaw SKU's make an appearance on their U.S. website.
Makita HRH01ZX2 36V Rotary Hammer Actually Runs On Two 18V Batteries

Back when Makita first announced their 36V rotary hammer 3 years ago I wondered why they just didn't make the tool run on two 18v batteries. I am sure they had their reasons, and maybe they expected to have more 36v tools out by now, but the 18v line is super popular and it just makes sense to have a tool that runs on the most popular battery.

Almost exactly 3 years ago Makita announced their first 36-volt cordless tool, and today we got word of a new 36-volt rotary hammer that I assume will take its place. There is also news of a new Makita 18-volt rotary hammer that is brushless and even has an on-board HEPA vac option.

No, you are not day dreaming... Makita has just introduced a brand new 36 volt cordless LXT lithium-ion 1" SDS-Plus rotary hammer. Makita says the new BHR261 was designed and engineered to offer the power and speed of a corded 1" rotary hammer, with the freedom offered from being cordless. The BHR261 has 3 modes of operation that should accommodate all of your construction/destruction needs: "Rotation only" for those delicate materials, "hammering with rotation" for drilling into harder tougher materials, and "hammering only" used for material removal. The BHR261 uses a Makita built motor...
