Chicago carpenter likes LXSL01's convenience, portability, and fast-charging battery

The Makita 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless 7-1/2" Dual Slide Compound Miter Saw (LXSL01) is ideal for room-to-room applications. So Tools of the Trade asked Manor Services, a Chicago-area carpenter-contractor, to try out.

Manor Services focuses on window and door installations and doesn't always need the capacity and power of a 10" or 12" miter saw, so they were eager to try out the more compact LXSL01. They gave it high marks for the combination of capacity and compact size, as well as for accuracy and ease of adjustment. They remarked on the fast-charging battery (only 30 minutes) and noted the fan feature in the ENERGY STAR® qualified Rapid Optimum Charger, which channels air through the battery to facilitate a faster charge. They liked the LXSL01 for applications that demand convenience and portability.
