Covered by Hitachi's Lifetime Lithium Ion tool warranty, the C18DBALP4 (bare tool) 18V Brushless Lithium Ion 6-1/2" Deep Cut Circular Saw is a revolutionary cordless circular saw. Utilizing a 6-1/2" blade it is capable of a 2-19/32" cutting depth -  making it one of the deepest cutting cordless circular saws on the market with a similar cut capacity as a 7-1/4" saw!

This circular saw combines comfort and convenience with power and precision. The Brushless motor reduces size and weight, while increasing the power and performance. Available as a tool body only, it is compatible with Hitachi's 18V slide type Lithium Ion batteries (sold separately). The C18DBALP4 features a built-in spotlight,  an electric brake, and is capable of generating a no-load speed of 4,100 RPM. The C18DBALP4 is equipped with a silent mode (auto mode) setting that reduces the max motor RPM enabling efficient work with less noise. When the load increases during silent mode, the tool will automatically switch over to Power mode and revert back to Silent mode when the load decreases.

It offers various safety features such as overload protection. This cuts off the power to the motor in the event of overload or an apparent reduction in rotational speed during operation thereby protecting the user and the motor and battery from damage. The C18DBALP4 is also fitted with further safety features such as soft start to reduce kick back on start-up and an electric brake that rapidly stops blade rotation once the trigger is released. At only 6.8 lbs (when equipped with a Compact 3.0Ah battery model BSL1830C) and with a center balanced design, the C18DBALP4 is one of the most lightweight, compact and powerful cordless circular saws on the market.
