Makita cordless tracksaw

Recommended Posts

This sort of chaps me arse... I just bought the Dewalt flexvot tracksaw this last weekend and now Makita releases their version of an X2 saw. Would have been nice to be able to compare the two before the purchase. Anyways; https://www.makitatools.com/products/details/XPS01PTJ

 

They are getting smart and are offering the kit with MakPacs. Hope to see more of that in the future.

 

ToolNut already has a listing for it on their site.

Woah! Yeah, I guess I didn't realize they were coming out with this! I saw the 36v worm drive that they came out with, but didn't realize they were going with the track saw too. Interesting.

Have you by chance tried the 36v worm drive? I have seen a few videos on it and it looks awesome.

Nope not yet. Belgium is unfortunately rather slow with bringing out new tools. Gonna be August before I get the chance :). But every reviewer seems te rave about it!

I got to play with the Makita Plunge a few weeks back. Very cool. Even has bluetooth to hook up to a vac.

Funny, the kit doesn't include a track? 

I noticed that too. The rails are interchangeable with Festool by the way if you have any floating around.

The saw is awesome.  Powerful and just a beast.

I never have but I think I have seen ads for it. I actually just got me a kreg k5 pocket hole jig. Might be a nice option for those who don't wan't to spend the extra money on a track saw.

Hat is actually a really sweet set up. And based on the included equipment you could buy two sets and attach them for full length plywood cuts for relatively cheap money.

The Bluetooth vacs aren't out yet. Maybe that's why they do not mention it yet ? :)

Seems a bit odd that the two new units they are just now releasing, XCV07 & XCV06, do not look as though they have bluetooth capability. I read through the manual for these and there is no mention of it at all, either there or on the website page for the vacs. Makes no sense that there would be a new release at this time without that feature and it would be almost useless to purchase one at this time if they do not have it. Marketing fail in the making.

They could at least say bluetooth feature coming soon or works well when paired with our new bluetooth vac coming soon. or something similar to indicate it has bluetooth and should be paired with the coming soon bluetooth vac.

All I know is the one I tried had the bluetooth functioning, as did the 10" mitre saw. They were both connected to the same functioning bluetooth vac. I imagine they would be released at a similar time... but who knows...

Well it's hardly new. We had those vacs in Europe for more then a year. Makita USA was waaaay late with introducing em it seems.

Which begs the question; why bother when they won't be compatible with upcoming tool releases?

 

There is no way I will purchase one at the price point they are currently at without the bluetooth ability.
