This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Decided I wanted upgrade my old cores saw so wanted a Makita as I’m already tied into the brand with the batteries.

This seems like a good deal for the 2x 18v model. Ok it’s not the newer brushless model, but for home DIY use, brushless is probably unnecessary anyway.

Body-only, doesn’t come with batteries, but this is selling for £191.99 on Amazon prime at the moment, so a decent deal

Bought this not so long ago off FFX eBay store. It's a beast of a saw, did some compound cuts in 10x2 for a cut roof valley a few weeks ago and it breezed through no bother. Gone are the days of the cord!

O have had this for a few years and it's a beast
People who buy cordless makita, buys them tools because they have makita batteries already.

Why is it better if you're using it for DIY?
The alternative here would be the dhs680 which is the single battery brushless. Fantastic saw as long as you replace the stock blade
I never mentioned DIY. Non brushless for DIY is fine. I prefer Brushless for my requirements that's all.

I was looking at the 680 and it looks like a fantastic tool. What swung it for me to get the 710 was the additional cutting depth at 0-degrees and 45-degrees, and the fact that the 710 was cheaper, but yeah a tough decision and both appear to be great circular saws!

Yeah granted it's a bit tight mitring a 2x4, I usually have to finish the last few mm with a tenon. Just another reason to get a mitre saw too though

This is a 190mm saw,as far as I'm aware the only DeWalt in this size is in flexvolt and won't be cheap.

Will have to check but I think that size fits my Bosch 18v. Have been using Freud Pro blades which seem to have jumped up in price so will try the blade you linked, thanks. Heat for this deal OP but I'm not starting another battery platform
Must resist.....as run out of batteries and cases!

Freud blades are the best, last ages and have a non rust coating. They transform even the most basic saws never mind these. Keep your eye out when there on offer as nothing else compares.

Each to their own I guess we have this argument on site quite often but I’d say 70% of us use dewalt on site

What is your requirement that makes brushless much better?

This preference for brushless is just marketing, you'd never tell the difference in a blind test.
Are these the same battery as dhp482 lxt drill

disagree with that have both brushed and brushless Makita there is a markedly difference especially battery run time.

Yep it’s LXT so all take same 18v batteries. Recommend pairing like for like though, eg 2x 4.0ah or 2x 5.0ah
For DIY, this or the dhs680. I have lots of batteries thanks to this site. May I ask where people have found the dhs680 at a good price? Cheers Si
Be careful! I saw a program where a guy had cut his chappy of with one of these.

I use Freud Pro on all my Makita saws. Unless I’m cutting steel or aluminium in which case I use a Makita blade.

Freud Pro for wood all day long

The dual batteries are run in series to give 36v (more power) rather than more runtime.
Was this really £121? Showing as £221 for me.

Looks like the price is back up, mega hot deal for those who purchased at £121 🔥 🏼
