The Makita 18V X2 (36 V) LXT Brushless 6-1/2 In. plunge circular saw kit (XPS01PTJ) delivers precise and more accurate cutting when combined with an optional guide rail system (sold separately). The saw and rail system work together to produce accurate cuts with minimal tear-out. The saw combines a powerful Makita-built Brushless Motor powered by two 18V LXT batteries with automatic speed change technology, which adjusts cutting speed and torque during the cut for optimum performance. The saw has a variable speed control dial (2,500 – 6,300 RPM), with soft start and an electric brake for added convenience. It has a large 2-3/16 In. cutting capacity at 90 degrees, with a bevel capability of -1° to 48° and positive stops at 22.5° and 45°. When used with a rail system (sold separately) the plunge circular saw is a more portable option to a table saw for select applications, and is ideal for use on the job site or in a workshop.

Is there a corded version of this saw and is it on sale with special Black Friday pricing? Thanks.

The corded version of this saw is the SP6000J. Below is a kit with a guide rail: There is a $25 off Makita purchases promotion running through 12/31.

Does the depth gauge only come in metric? is there a stick on that has imperial?

The depth gauge is only available in metric. It is molded into the saw housing, so I don't think a sticker would work well to replace it.
