"Have had one of these for over 4 years without trouble. Will cut any thickness of timber......provided you do so in a couple of cuts. Anyone expecting a battery powered saw to cut through 2" in one cut should not really be using one!!! Happy cutting......"

Review 2 for Makita BSS611Z 18V LXT Circular Saw - Bare
"Fairly useful if you are cutting stuff not too thick or hard. Had this for about 6 months used on 2x6 pine and 18mm shuttering ply and works adequately although battery doesn't last that long. Other day I tried to cut a 45 deg slice off a 2x6 length wise and the motor burn't out. TBH I'd say stick to a powered version if you can. Cheaper, more powerful & probably more reliable."
