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 in. cutting capacity, it is ideal for electrical contractors since it will cut 2 in. conduit in one pass a huge time saver. Also ideal for HVAC, installation, metal building, metal fabrication, plumbing, metal roofing, and for any pro-contractor who requires a 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 in. blade options for use with the saw: 32T carbide tipped for metal and general purpose; 52T for thin metal; 52T for aluminum; and 60T for stainless steel (all sold separately). Part of Makita's expanding 18V lithium-ion system, they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger. For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created Star Protection Computer Controls . Star Protection is communication technology that allows the Star Protection-equipped tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita 18V LXT and compact lithium-ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
