Have made this purchase twice in the last two years. Once for myself and another time for my brother. Both times I walked out to my truck and put the saw away and walked back inside to return the extra batteries. Easy transaction and saw ends up costing around $160 after tax. Saw with 2 batteries for that price is great to me.

I did this hack last summer, like with other HD hacks, just order the saw for pickup in store and the extra batteries as ship to home. place the order and you have 45 min to cancel the ship to home batteries, leaving you with just the saw to pick up for about $160 (my total last summer was a little lower, $157 after taxes).

thanks guys. bought this but didn't really need two more batteries. already have the angle grinder and drill/driver. I was using the brushless ryobi 7.25 saw but it has an alignment issue that makes it hard to use with a guide.

I own the Makita single battery circ saw and am very tempted. I have built 6 loft sheds with mine and it has performed beautifully. It's my favorite Makita tool. No sheds in the near future or I would get this in a heartbeat, still might.

I just bought the dual charger last week. Thinking of returning that and buying this deal, keep the batteries / and charger and sell the saw as tool only. I realize it's some hoops to jump through for the savings. Anyone else think it's worth doing it?

I'm thinking the same. What do you think saw will sell for? tool only.

Lol. Search facebook marketplace for "Makita". This deal has been live for over two months, you think you're the only person to think of that?

The 36V saws go for around $100-$110 on the marketplace in my area.

I bought the dual charger just last week so my scenario is probably different than others who are thinking similarly. No one else asked so I did :-p

Thanks for your input and the going price of the saw in your local area. I'll check out my local Craigslist. I also have the Makita brushless blower. That tool chews up the 5ah battery in 20 mins. Extra batteries are welcomed for that device. =)

I just did this with the Makita four tool combo kit. They were selling the subcompact four tool kit for 199 plus a free battery, incredible deal. Ended up paying 131 for a 300 dollar kit. Sold the impact and drill driver for 60 each on fb marketplace which essentially got me a 6 1/2 inch circular saw a light a charger and 2 1.5 amp hour batteries for 10 bucks.

I jumped on this deal in December. Sent the extra batteries to another HD for pick up, never picked them up and was refunded the $97. Lowest effort method of hacking the deal.

I am currently in the Milwaukee and Dewalt eco system. Some of my milwaukee tools have been less than impressive (mid torque 1/2" needed service after little use, 1/4" impact needed service, they sent a brand new one and it has a problem with the switch), but their warranty length and and ease of return has been good.

Anyone who works Makita tools for a living, what has been your experience with quality of individual tools and ease/speed of repair when needed? I just bought a gas Makita (Dolmar) chainsaw and love it, I grew up with Makita corded tools and they are great. I am just wondering about the durability of their cordless. Thank you!

I have four or five Makita cordless tools and they are all top notch. No issues, nice power and dependable. I have not had any failures in the 3 years I have owned them, so can't comment on repair ease. Milwaukee and Makita are at the top of my list. I think Milwaukee has better deals more frequently though.

Like the other brands, Makita makes different quality tools at different price points. Their top-end tools match or exceed the top-end of other brands. They excel in certain areas: impact drivers, circular saws, miter saws, etc.

The biggest difference between them and the other tool brands is in batteries. Makita stuck with a single platform that maxes out at 6.0Ah batteries. They have a line of tools that use 2 of those and operate at 36V. Their chargers are the fastest and widely regarded as the best.

They have service centers in the US, I've only had a single issue (with a drill gearbox) and they serviced it for me no problem.

Quote from jroc4tek :
I bought this same combination and price from Makita two years ago. The saw is really well weighted and with two batteries it lasts all day. The brake kicks in after cuts to extend battery life. Really great for cutting OSB and Plywood and doesn't get jammed up with dust. Site lines are really good too, plus it has a built in rafter hook. Down side is it doesn't have a built in wrench for blade change out. Other downside is although it is really smooth at cutting it is slightly under powered. I tried using it to bevel cut rafters and it struggled on doug fir and could not go through SYP. So if you are cutting LVL or rafters I would get the Milwaukee, Dewalt, or Skill worm drive. Otherwise for everything else it is a fantastic saw.
Agreed for the most part, but I don't think any of the other cordless options are going to be any better. If you meant a corded worm drive, that makes sense and makita makes one of those that's an absolute beast as well.
