This is a huge improvement over a previous Hunter circular saw I had. I use it with the Kreg Accu-Cut and find it lightweight, relatively quiet, precise and conveinient. Would recommend it to anyone. Of course you are limited by battery life which is quite long but not endless.
Used for roofing. The hanging hook is perfect for the top of a scaff pole. Makita all the way.
I used this to cut 12mm plywood to line a shed, it cut this, as well as some 18mm very easily and cleanly, and was such a light weight it was a joy to use. Dust collection was not so good, but that was my only niggle.Very much recommended, and it cut the whole lot on only a couple of charges with a 3Ah battery
Definite improvement over my 610z Makita cordless saw.It is noticeable the speed increase when cutting.The saw cuts through mdf and plywood 18mm easily.Side fence seems sturdy enough.Build quality seems good and once registered you get a 3 year Makita warranty.Doesn’t seem to be any heavier than my old saw.Happy overall with the purchase and quick delivery.
It a goo size for lots of different jobs lightweight. And it so easy to use.
Good product delivered promptly and as described.
Really nice and easy to use tool, one of my favourites in my tool bag.I cant think of anything bad to say about this saw.
