The XSL05 was designed to be a portable compact dual-bevel compound miter saw. Featuring a Brushless motor, 6-1/2” blade, and laser for accuracy. Weighing in at only 14.6 lbs. with battery makes this saw ideal for room-to-room applications. 


  • Weighs only 14.6 lbs. with battery (battery not included) for easy portability
  • Automatic Speed Change™ technology adjusts cutting speed and torque during cut for optimum performance
  • 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Battery delivers the power and performance of a corded miter saw without leaving the 18V LXT® platform (battery not included)
  • LXT® technology delivers up to 270 cuts per charge in 1/2" x 3-1/2" baseboard using one 6.0Ah battery (battery not included)
  • The BL™ Brushless Motor eliminates carbon brushes, enabling the BL Motor to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life
  • Efficient BL™ Brushless motor is electronically controlled to optimize battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per charge
  • High power provides efficient cutting in a variety of different materials including wood and aluminum extrusion (aluminum blade and cutting lubricant sold separately)
  • Cutting capacity of 1-13/16" x 3-5/8" at 90° and 1-13/16" x 2-9/16" at 45°
  • Mini sub-fence provides wide support when performing vertical cuts or left bevel cuts
  • Miters 0-52° left and right; bevels 0-46° left and right
  • Miter detents at: 0°, 15°, 22.5°, 30° and 45° left and right
  • Aluminum base improves stability of material for efficient cutting
  • Electric brake for maximum productivity
  • Built-in laser clearly indicates line-of-cut whether or not blade is turning; on-off switch and micro-adjustments for precise cutting "left-of-blade" or "right-of-blade"
  • Built-in L.E.D. light illuminates the work area
  • Rubberized soft grip handle provides increased comfort on the job
  • See-through blade guard system for greater visibility of blade and line of cut
  • 3-stage L.E.D. gauge on the tool indicates battery charge levels
  • Equipped with Star Protection Computer Controls™ to protect against overloading, over-discharging and over-heating
  • Rapid Optimum Charger communicates with the battery's built-in chip throughout the charging process to optimize battery life by actively controlling current, voltage and temperature (battery and charger sold separately)
  • Rapid Optimum Charger has a built-in fan to cool the battery for faster, more efficient charging (battery and charger sold separately)
  • Makita technology delivers category-leading charge time so the battery spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger (battery and charger sold separately)
  • Compatible with Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries with a Star symbol (battery sold separately)
  • 3-year limited warranty
  • Only use genuine Makita batteries and chargers
