Makita 18V LXT® Lithium‑Ion Brushless Cordless 5‑7/8″ Metal Cutting Saw Kit, with Electric Brake and Chip Collector (5.0Ah)

Makita is the leader in brushless motor technology, and the 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 5-7/8” Metal Cutting Saw (model XSC02T) delivers faster metal cutting through Unistrut®, all thread, channel, corrugated, conduit, pipe, sheet metal, square tubing, steel and more. With a full 2-1/4″ cutting capacity, it is ideal for electrical contractors since it will cut 2” conduit in one pass – a huge time saver. It is also ideal for HVAC, installation, metal building, metal fabrication, plumbing, metal roofing, and for any pro contractor who requires a best-in-class cordless metal cutting saw. The kit includes two fast-charging 18V Lithium-Ion 5.0Ah batteries and a Rapid Optimum Charger.

Makita offers four optimum 5-7/8″ blade options for use with the XSC02T: 32T carbide-tipped for metal and general-purpose; 52T for thin metal; 52T for aluminum; and 60T for stainless steel (all sold separately).

It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion system, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries. 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.
