Makita DHS680-Z5 Brushless Circular Saw with 1 x 5.0Ah Li-ion Battery, but no case or charger.
The DHS680 is Makita's first brushless circular saw, which becomes one of the latest memeber of Makita's impressive line up of 18v Lithium-ion cordless tools.
Boasting a brand new brushless motor and some new in-built features the DHS680 looks set to become one of the most popular cordless circular saws on the market.
The motor is a new highly efficient brushless motor, that has several benefits over the non brushed equivalent. Firstly, because their are no brushes within the motor, non of the battery power is wasted on creating the heat and friction that happens when using brushes, so consequently the battery lasts longer (per charge) and the energy created by the battery is far more efficent allowing your tool to achieve higher capacities so this saw will be able to cut, longer, faster and into tougher materials.
Another benefit of the brushless motor is that, because there are no moving/touching parts in the motor there is nothing wearing away at anything else and getting damaged. So your motor is actually going to be kept in far better condition than before.
One more impressive new feature is the 'Automatic Speed Control' found on this saw. This feature allows the computer chip built into the saw to determine the most efficent cutting speed for the job that you're doing! Its speeds up or reduces the speed of the saw making sure that it only uses the right amount of energy when required. Making sure you get the most out of your saw, blade and battery.
Another handy new feature is the battery state indicator which uses 3 LED lights to illuminate the amount of battery charge you have left so you'll never be caught without power just when you need it.
The Makita DHS680-Z5 is suppied with the tool body, 1 x5.0Ah Li-ion Battery but no case or charger.
