LS1018 is an ideal cutting solution for a range of applications

La Mirada, CA — Makita has expanded its line-up of best-in-class miter saws with the new 10" Slide Compound Miter Saw (model LS1018). The LS1018 delivers large cutting capacity and accuracy right out of the box, and is ideal for applications ranging from fine woodworking and carpentry to general construction.

Makita 10" Slide Compound Miter Saw (model LS1018).
"Makita miter saws are leaders in their categories, and the LS1018 is the latest addition to this expanding line-up," said Joe Soto, Product Manager, Residential Construction. "This versatile saw provides smooth and accurate cutting in a full range of materials, from fine hardwoods to rough lumber, softwoods, case and base, crown molding, and other wood materials."

Direct Drive: A Key Point of Difference
The LS1018 is powered by a direct drive 13 AMP motor with soft start. This is a key point of difference, as users will experience smoother start-ups and constant power with no belts to slip or replace. The electric brake provides added convenience.

Accuracy and Capacity
The linear ball bearing system is engineered to deliver smooth, "dead-on" accurate cuts. At 90 the LS1018 has 12" crosscutting capacity, with 8-1/2" capacity at 45 (miter). The saw miters 0 to 47 left and 0 to 60 right, with positive stops at 0, 15, 22.5, 31.6, and 45 (left and right). The rear-handle bevel lock is easily accessible with adjustments 0 to 45 (left and right), and positive stops at 0 and 45 (left and right).

Less Weight for Jobsite Portability
Additional features include a high-quality 40T carbide-tipped blade, and a see-through blade guard system for greater visibility of the blade and line-of-cut. The ergonomic rubberized handle design with large trigger has a better fit for added comfort, and the carrying handle is positioned at the top of the tool when in the locked position for easier transport. The LS1018 weighs only 43.7 lbs. for added jobsite portability.

The LS1018 is part of Makita’s expanding line-up of best-in-class miter saws that deliver capacity, accuracy, and portability for a range of cutting applications. It is ideal for baseboard and crown molding installation, finish carpentry, cabinet and furniture making, wood floor installation, deck building, general construction, and more.
