The Makita 18Vx2 305mm Slide Compound Mitre Saw Bare Unit is ideal for professional and DIY use as it can supply similar power than a corded machine. Its brushless motor also ensures it doesn't compromise power when under load. The electric brake is a safety feature that is ideal in busy work places and the soft start function helps to provide a clean smooth cut that, with help from the laser line function is straight and precise. Designed for work on all sizes, it has holders to support a wide workpiece and a large turn base. The single sliding system enables smooth operation to produce superior cuts and the clever AWS technology means it connects to compatible dust extractors via bluetooth. It has a front knob that makes bevel adjustment easy and an easy-to-operate mitre angle lock. Bare unit, not supplied with batteries or charger.
