Very nice little saw. Didn’t get the amount of cutting with a 2 amp battery that the manufacturer’s description led me to believe, but switching up to 3 amp batteries was adequate,

As you get older a lot of tools get heavier and that is the reason I bought this saw. After using it some I just love it. It cuts very good, has power, lite, all adjustments are easy. The brake is a great feature along with the light on it.

Quick Review: Great saw performance wise, this lost a star from me due to a few features that I would have modified, but they do not take away from the great performance of the saw. I used this with 2x's, cutting 2x8 lumber and it cut right through them with no problems. The Problem: I was looki...

My son-in-law was ecstatic with this Christmas gift!! He couldn’t put it down!!

All and all a very nice tool. It puts my cordless portacable to same dont get me wrong that is a nice tool it just dont have the battery life or power that this one provides.

Excelente

Far surpassed my expectations

Where can i get the rafter hook for this model?

Thank you for your question. Please see the 199231-7 Tool Hook.

Check the manual. I believe it lists a part number for it. I did see a reference to it but didn’t give it much attention.

Will my BL1820B battery and my DC1820 charger work with this tool?

Thank you for your question. The XSH04ZB 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Sub-Compact Brushless Cordless 6-1/2” Circular Saw, Tool Only is compatible with all Makita 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion batteries and chargers.

Can you use the 0.4, 0.5 and 0.6 batteries on this saw and what is the difference between those b...

Thank you for your question on the XSH04ZB. This tool uses the following batteries.BL1815N, BL1820B , BL1830 ,BL1830B , BL1840B , BL1850B , BL1860B. The differences are in the capacity of the batteries.

They should all interchange. Bigger the number the more power, run time and weight (if that matters).
