This Makita Bundle (GPS01M1J-194368-5) includes one 40V MAX XGT 6-1/2" Plunge Circular Saw Kit and one Guide Rail.
The 40V Max XGT Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless AWS Capable 6-1/2" Plunge Circular Track Saw 4.0 Ah (GPS01M1J) delivers precise and more accurate cutting when combined with an optional guide rail system. The saw and rail system work together to produce accurate cuts with minimal tear-out. The saw combines a powerful Makita-built brushless motor with Automatic Speed Change Technology, which adjusts cutting speed and torque during the cut for optimum performance.
The saw has a variable speed control dial (2,500 – 4,900 RPM), with soft start and an electric brake for added convenience. Constant speed control enables a consistent smooth finish under load. It has a large 2-3/16” cutting capacity at 90-degrees and 1-1/2” at 48-degrees. It has a bevel capability of -1° to 48° and positive stops at 22.5° and 45°.
For improved efficiency, it is capable of wirelessly starting a connected dust management solution. Auto-start Wireless System (AWS) utilizes Bluetooth technology for wireless communication between the tool and dust extractor (sold separately). When the trigger of the AWS-equipped GPS01Z is engaged, the AWS-equipped dust extractor powers-up. When the trigger is released, the dust extractor powers-down. AWS is intelligent communication that eliminates cords and excessive noise since the dust extractor runs only when the tool is running. An AWS transmitter is needed (sold separately).
The Makita 55" Plunge Saw Guide Rail (194368-5), when used with a Makita Plunge Circular Saw is a more portable option to a table saw for ripping sheet material. The Guide Rail interacts with the Plunge Saw to provide smooth, dead-on straight cuts.
