The Best Makita Circular Saw

It took 1 year for this to become my favourite Makita circular saw. The Makita DHS680 is my favourite for a variety of reasons. What is your favourite saw?

I have that saw too – love it. You can get an adapter for that saw that lets you use it on a rail guide – can do all your cuts 0° – 50°ish. Great option for the amateur market like myself as the old plunge saws ain’t that cheap – whatever the brand (except maybe the Ozito plunge saw they have in Ozi now). Have you seen the Tools & Stuff YT channel – another Aucklander dude. He recently won the efficut blade challenge comp over at the Makita NZ FB page. He does heaps of Makita reviews. cheers m8 – your subs goin’t up heaps! nice one man.

Cost is still too high on cordless saws. Drop your 500 dollar 60v off a roof.

Nicolås Fonseca says:

Hey man, I wanted to ask you if it is a very loud saw, I don’t know mikita enough to know if there tools are loud or not, thak you for your answer.

hurricanenzl says:

Totally agree with the cordless. I have a makita 36v brushless rear handle and one like yours. Haven’t plugged my corded circular in for ages. Dont know how i found your channel. Think i was searching something makita? But man i just binge watch most of your videos. Great quality and edits. The length of the vids are ideal for my attention span, keep doing your thing Scott the subs will come. How do you find the makita plunge saw ? I have the festool version but have been thinking of getting the 36v makita.

Adrian Edhouse says:

70? It now September which is only 4 months later and you’re up to 13k Well done.

Neil Rankin says:

Where I’m from we call that a circular saw and a “skilsaw” refers to a worm drive saw.

#florisbox says:

I also have the same circular saw and if you let it fall out it no longer cut square anymore due to the low quality of the depth guide, I think this is its weak point. BUMP AND TWISTED!

JK says:

And now youre on 10K subs!

Christopher Toenes says:

Get this man a sponsorship!

Erik Tontsch says:

It Works 😮

Zavi071 says:

*>>>****   Very powerful worm drive and not to heavy… makita has been stepping their game up*

Kallum Taylor says:

jesus, who is this man? i have a tattoo of this saw on the back onf my arm.

R C says:

Bought one three weeks ago .fucking great thing use it so much

TheToolnut says:

Like yourself i had and still have the brushed version of this. I bought the black limited edition brushless 6-1/2″ circ saw and although i haven’t used it that much it has impressed me. Good review!

Riley Eccleshall says:

Hey man apprentice from tauranga, just watched you van deck out and it looks sweet!

My boss has this saw and i was using it to cut existing framing up on a ladder in a reno we are working on and its so light and the led light makes it really easy to see your lines in a dark corner!

sion atkinson says:

That’s a great saw, I’ve been using one in the UK for over for over two years now. It still impresses me with its power, it has much more power than the DeWalt 18v, and it’s so compact I love it. Great videos Scott.

9mmkahr says:

The full sized, 36 volt is the way to go! Thing cuts as good as a corded saw.. It’s been a game changer. Been using the XSH01Z every day on the job since January. They just came out with the brushless version, XSH06Z. new saw also has rafter hook mount, LED light, sling loop and bevel stops to 56 degree. 600 cuts in a 2×4. We have entered the next phase of cordless, gentlemen!

YaakovKatz says:

pink lumber lol. also can u easily find spare parts for it?

don jovi says:

i use the same saw and love it, massive improvement from the earlier battery model

Airborne Images says:

Just melted my Ryobi brushed cordless saw after 4 years of hard work & about to pick up the Makita brushless. Hoping for good things.
