Makita’s 6-1/2 Plunge Circular Saw Delivers Precesion Accurate for Splinter Free Cutting
Makita USA is proud to announce the launch of their new 6-1/2” Plunge Circular Saw (model SP6000K). The saw combines a powerful 12 AMP motor and a large cutting capacity with magnesium components for less weight and electronic speed control to maintain constant speed under load for smooth cutting and a splinter-free mirror finish. The optional guide rail is constructed with anodized aluminum for smooth, straight cuts.
“This new saw is a more portable option to a table saw for cross-cutting and ripping large pieces when it needs to be accurate,” said Joe Soto, product manager for residential and pneumatic products. “The SP6000K is engineered with a range of technical features for dead-on accurate cutting, but it also includes convenient features like magnesium components for less weight, and anodized aluminum with wider glide strips for smooth, accurate cutting,” said Joe Soto, product manager, residential and pneumatic products. “This saw is ideal for high-end woodworking, cabinetry, closet building, and any other precision-cutting application.”
The saw has a bevel capability of -1° to 48° with positive stops at 22.5° and 45°. The saw delivers precise cutting, as the position of the blade enters the material on the same cutting line whether cutting straight or bevel. In addition, the saw has close-to-wall cutting (11/16”) for expanded cutting applications. The built-in depth stop allows a preliminary cut of 1/16″ to be performed before the entire material is cut through for clean and splinter-free cutting
The saw includes a range of convenient features, including a large top handle, an electric brake for more productivity, as well as a lock-lever that attaches the saw to the rail system so the saw stays on the rail when positioned for a bevel cut. The smooth and convenient plunge release lever is designed for operator comfort, and the depth adjustment with large scale is easy to set. The retail price is is around $359.
The SP6000K includes a carbide-tipped blade (48T), hex blade wrench and tool case. Optional accessories include a smooth-finish anodized aluminum guide rail system (54” and 117”), as well as a clamp set that interacts with the saw base to provide smooth perfect dead-on straight or bevel cutting.
