The Makita 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless 136MM Trim Circular Saw combines cordless cutting power with less weight in a compact size. The DSS501Z (tool only) has a Makita-built high torque motor and a 51mm maximum cutting capacity, making it ideal for woodworkers and finish carpenters.
The DSS501Z is a light, powerful cordless circular saw ideal for professional woodworkers and finishing carpenters. It’s also great for builders and other pro trades making cuts overhead, in tight spaces, or through light material that does not require a standard size circular saw. The saw features a Makita-built high torque motor that produces 3,600 RPM for faster cutting. The saw has a 50 degree maximum bevel cutting capacity and is engineered with a stainless steel base plate for smooth, accurate cutting and added durability.
It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion series, the world’s largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. 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.
