You're looking at between 120 to 150 with that. The MaxSelect circular saw is estimated to run approximately 250 cuts with the 24volt XLi battery on 2x4's. I've experienced right around that (about 225-ish to 240-ish) with my 24 volt batteries. I've also used this saw with my 18volt lithium ion 1.5 Ah batteries, and I get about 65-85 cuts. So, with the 2.5 Ah Max nicad battery that you're wondering about, depending on the condition of your batteries, you're looking at right about 130 cuts (anywhere between 100 to 150, depending on your batteries). Hope this helps.
Not quite sure, since I don't yet have a 3.0 Ah lithium ion battery yet. I would figure about 150 to 175 or so, comparing to the other numbers. Hard to say though, as that saw is a heavy drain on 18 volt batteries as it is, and your nicads may end up performing a bit better than the lithiums, unless the lithiums are given a bit of time between cuts to recover a bit.
