Makita BSS501 – Feature-packed Compact Circular Trim Saw

When it comes to cutting-edge technology in cordless power tools, Makita may have outdone itself with the BSS501 Circular Trim Saw Kit.  Loaded with features and power, yet squeezed into a lightweight, compact tool, this is an exceptional circular saw.

Because it is compact and ergonomically designed, this is an extremely versatile and easy-to-use circular trim saw.  Measuring in at a compact 14-3/8″ long and weighing a feather-light 5.7 pounds (with battery), the Makita BSS501 is the perfect saw for making overhead cuts, reaching into tight spaces or for cutting lighter materials that do not require the use of a full-size circular saw (such as the Makita BSS610).  Whether you are a homeowner, finish carpenter, professional woodworker or builder, the ease of use and versatility of the Makita BSS501 make it a great tool for anyone looking for a
world-class cordless trim saw.

Hidden beneath the compact exterior is surprisingly big performance.  The Makita-built motor produces a no-load speed of 3,600 RPM, which allows the 5-3/8″ carbide tipped blade to easily cut through up to 2″ @ 90 degrees and 1-3/8″ @ 45 degrees.  With the built-in blower, cut lines are kept clean allowing for more accurate cuts and the LED light illuminates the work area allowing you to work faster.

Being able to work quickly, accurately and safely is what you get with all of the features packed into the BS501.  But the real key to the greatness of the Makita BSS501 is 18v LXT Lithium-Ion battery.  Because of the LXT battery, the BSS501 can go just about anywhere you need to work.  No more worrying about having an outlet nearby or having a cord that could get caught on something.  And power will be there when you need it; you can count on that with this battery.

Compared to other batteries the LXT is 40% lighter, has five times less self-discharge and lasts longer..  With 16 firm-holding contact terminals, power delivery is consistent and high.

To be sure you have power for those all day projects, the Makita BSS501 Circular Trim Saw Kit comes with two batteries and the 30-minute Rapid Optimum Charger.  No matter the project, with two batteries on hand you will be able to work all day without having to wait for a fresh battery.  The charger has a built-in fan to keep the battery cool during charging, which produces more lifetime work.  The charger’s “Active 3 Control” communicates with the battery to control current, temperature and voltage to optimize the battery life.

A quick look at the features of other similar trim saws will tell you that the Makita BSS501is a great choice whether you are a handy homeowner, a professional finish carpenter or something in-between.  Value for the money is important when considering power tools, and Makita delivers with this

Milwaukee 2601 compact drill test with 1.5 amp hour battery – Part 1

This is a quick video of the Milwaukee 2601 M18 compact drill with the 1.5 amp hour battery. This video is in response to the biased and possibly phony videos out there showing supposedly objective comparisons of various drills against the Dewalt counterparts, of which the Dewalt version always wins. Those videos are posted by the “power tool forum” which is AKA “The Dewalt Owners Group”. Being in residential construction, I felt that those videos were biased and decided to do my own objective test of the compact Milwaukee drill. I own Makita, General, Milwaukee, Hitachi, Ridgid, Bosch, etc. tools, and generally buy tools based on their individual merits rather than following brand loyalty. I hope that this video and the second “Part 2” video give a better and more honest look at this small but tough compact drill. I may do a similar Makita test soon as a another comparison. Part 2 to this test showing the same test in a 2×4 SPF stud can be seen at this link:
