Makita XSH03M Brushless Circular Saw

A long time ago we did a review on Makita metal cutting saw.  While that was a great saw, we really haven’t had much experience with any of their newer saws, well at least not until today.  Today we get our hands on the Makita XSH03 Brushless 6 1/2″ 18V circular saw.  The kit comes with the saw, 2-18V batteries, a charger, blade and nylon bag.  Let’s start out with the power of this saw.  This saw delivers 5,000 rpm which is great for fast ripping or cutting of materials.  Not only is this saw fast, but it’s smart....
