Yes.   Get efficient cutting without the cord with the XSH10Z. It makes up to 110 cross cuts in 3x12 oak board using two fully-charged 5.0Ah batteries. The electronically-controlled brushless motor delivers a full 4,500 RPM for efficient cutting, with Automatic Speed Changeô technology to adjust the cutting speed and torque under load for optimum performance.

A review?
No Iíve got a Festool TS75. But when  the dealer Toolnut was out of the 75 they recommended that unit as a replacement on their website. Iíve thought about getting that unit for extra cut capacity and portability. If I get it I will definitely give it  a review. The online reviews were really good and they said it was better than the newer 40v single battery. The two batteries had a faster rpm better cutting. And the run time was about the same

Actually the 40V has better sustained power even though less RPM's and the battery comes with 2.5 ampH, but a 5 ampH is an option. It actually cuts faster in the end. Those two batteries on the 36V overhang a lot, interfering with some cuts, making it wider and heavier and the top 18V battery is a bit of a knuckle banger. :D

I never use the stock blade, itís good for crosscut but not for ripping.  I use the 16 tooth Panther ripping blade with much better 2Ē deep rips and easily resharpend.  It will crosscut slabs fine, also.  Iíve also used a couple other ripping blades, but keep going back to the Panther.  

I also keep a couple screwdrivers stuck into the foam board.  Whenever the wood starts to bind the saw, Iíll jam a screwdriver in the kerf to jack it open.  Thatís works really well.  
wonder if the panther ripping blade will work on the Makita 9 1/4", have not found a ripping blade for it

Just got off phone with tool hut makita only offers in the 9 1/4" blade a 24 tooth, do you think that will do a good job ripping slabs

Festool is great but no 75s now. And been that way for a long time. Toolnut
Recommends this unit in place of the 75 and itís cordless and cuts over three inches and will work with the Festool track.

The XSH10Z is compatible with Makita Guide Rails (sold separately) for accurate ripping. With a large cutting capacity of 3-3/8Ē at 90◦, the XSH10Z can conquer demanding applications such as ripping and cross cutting larger beams, boards and forms.
I got this saw a few weeks ago with 3 different tracks, I've use it a little now. On ripping longer slabs one did well and another got stuck . I keep wooden wedges near and stuck one behind saw but didn't free it very good. Not being a plunge saw what should be best to do?
