Automatic Speed Change
There are 2 things that drive a cutting saw on the road to perfection. First, it’s the speed of the cutting blade and then, it’s the torque power system. In the Makita XSC02Z LXT, there is a feature that assists the functionality of both.
That’s the Automatic Speed Change technology that is patented and foolproof. What it does is it automatically fine-tunes the cutting speed to match the material it’s cutting. This delivers fast operation, for sure, but it also manages precision while cutting.
On top of that is the 3,900 RPM speed supported by a strong, efficient lithium-ion battery. So the Makita offers an all-rounded and performance-driven appeal that is not that easy to find in a cordless metal cutting saw.
The dimensions of this cutting saw are less than 15 inches. This means it’s a compact and narrow cutting saw with a high-quality blade.
Despite its small design, it can handle a wide variety of projects. Including roofing, sheet metal cutting, metal siding, roof panels, and tubing, and lots more.
Equipped with an electronically-controlled brushless motor, it saves 50% power with a longer run-time. So in my efficiency tests, the Makita XSC02Z is a good pick.
To be exact, the Makita is 13-1/8-inches long. This provides more flexibility and user-friendliness for performing intricate cuts. It navigates really well even if you are to use just one hand. And there’s an even better cutting line visibility because the finishing quality and size of the Makita are convenient.
This is better than a traditional cordless metal cutting saw with 5-7/8-inch blade options. And it can easily cut 2-inches in a single, pain-free pass. The blade quality I would recommend is most compatible with this Makita is a 32T carbide-tooth blade.
Now, this particular product doesn’t come with a blade. But you can find one easily considering the Makita’s exceptional blade compatibility. It also works with 52T for thin and aluminum metals, and 60T for solid stainless steel.
The tool, by itself, weighs less than 6.5 pounds. So it’s compact and easy to handle. The brushless motor has a 3,900 RPM cutting speed which given its lightweight design ensures fast and effective cutting.
The brushless motor works efficiently to ensure smooth blade cutting and stopping after trigger release. It doesn’t release sparks even! This is a metal cutting saw and it doesn’t spray out any sparks, that’s got to be a win-win situation for you, right?
Last thing I’d like to mention that makes the Makita XSC02Z an irresistible product is its overall quality. It stays cool, noiseless, and vibration-free for a long, long time. This affects not just the durability of the cutting saw because we all know that less heat buildup and zero vibration leads to a longer lifespan.
But what I’m referring to is performance efficiency. Whether you use 32 or 52T carbide blades, the product stays cool as a cucumber. It does all of the heavy-duty work without any struggle. Delivering smooth finishing, high-quality cuts, and better, more lasting edge cuts.
The brushless battery really boosts the power efficiency and run-time of the saw. Making it for everyday use with 50% quicker charging time and run-time.
