Full disclosure:  Tool Craze cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information/specifications/features of any tool listed in this article. Please do your full research before buying any products.

The Makita X2 power cutter uses a 9 inch blade and comes included with a diamond blade for cutting concrete and a cut off wheel for cutting metals making this not just good as a concrete saw but also for metal cutting as well. It has a very good cut capacity at 3-1/2″ inches in depth and also includes a hose adapter for wet cutting which is very useful when cutting things like concrete and helps keep the diamond blade cool and dust under control. The water delivery has OSHA Table 1 compliance.

The XEC01 has a maximum cutting depth of 3-1/2”, which allows for single-pass cuts in many common materials, including standard residential 4” concrete slabs (actual 3-1/2”), common 3-1/2” paver/blocks, 3” SCH40 pipe (3-1/2” OD), and 3” conduit (3-1/2” OD). It is an ideal cordless solution for masons, roofers, plumbers, remodelers, construction workers, landscape and hardscape workers, metal fabricators, commercial framers, pipe fitters, vehicle mechanics, firefighters, and more.

The Makita X2 power cutter is an X2 cordless power tool meaning it uses two 18 volt batteries together to produce 36 volts making it both a 36 volt tool and also part of the Makita 18 volt family of cordless tools since it uses their 18V batteries. It has a covered dual battery port on top which is no doubt in place to keep water away from the batteries when wet cutting.

It’s also a brushless power tool which no doubt is needed to run a 9 inch blade and for greater efficiency. Also since it’s a battery powered tool and not a gasoline powered, you have easy push button starting and don’t have the hassle of gas fumes or pull string starting or routine gas engine maintenance.

Other features include AFT (active feedback technology) which automatically turns off the motor if the blade binds and stops to protect the motor and electronics, has a soft start and electric brake, and LED light to illuminate the cutting area which helps in low light situations. It also features a large spindle lock for easier wheel changes, dual battery fuel gauge, lock off power switch and integrated overload indicator.

According to Makita, they say this cordless power cutter will be released in September 2020.
