Product Overview

The Makita 6-1/2 in. Plunge Cut Circular Saw and 55 in. Guide Rail work together to produce accurate cuts with minimal tear-out. The saw combines a powerful 12-Amp motor and a large cutting capacity with magnesium components for less weight (only 9.7 lbs.). Electronic speed control maintains constant speed under load for smooth handling and a splinter-free, mirror finish. The saw delivers accurate cutting as the position of the blade enters the material on the same cutting line, whether cutting straight or bevel.

Customer Questions & Answers

Does this kit come with tool box?

Asked by: Hamilton
Ships loose in a plastic box with no padding or foam. Saw was damaged from trashing around in its case. Replacement was even worse.

When I put the saw on the guide rail to make a cut for the fist time, the blade was coming down on the rubber stripe of the guide rail to cut,

is this saw suppose to cut the guide rail rubber on the very first cut with the saw,
Asked by: William54
yes, the first cut establishes the cut line for all subsequent cuts, and then also prevents future splintering on the inside of the cut.

12-Amp 6-1/2 in. Plunge Circular Saw with 55 in. Guide Rail and Case is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 79.

My table saw could not provide the accuracy and it was a hassle trying to rip 8' sheets of plywood. For two years I used aluminum guide rails with my circular saw to save money but the frustration was too much. I scrapped too many expensive sheets because the saw "moved" laterally. The dust collection port connects perfectly to my Dewalt DWV010 HEPA vacuum which I also bought here at Home Depot. Now I can cut pieces in my basement with sawdust cleanup remaining minimal. Now that I'm used to the vacuum turning on and off with the saw, I can't go back! I do have one complaint directed at Makita: pack the saw & guide rail better. My saw bounced so much that the plastic tray in the bottom was busted. If you pay $400 plus for tool, is a $1 piece of foam at the top too much to ask for? Show a little respect to your customers please. Also, my guide rail had some cosmetic damage at the corners from poor packaging. Not a show stopper but very disappointing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Makita track saw Received it today. First thing, makita packs the saw in the case without any protection, so saw and case were a bit banged up in transport. Also, there is a lot of slop in the plastic pivot points to the the base plate, so it's difficult to get accurate bevel cuts. Just loosen the two bevel wing nuts and move the saw up and down while holding the base and you'll see what I'm talking about. It'll do the job, but I expected a lot more from such a pricy " presicion" tool.

I own 6 Makita tools and they are all ruggedly built and provide years of trouble-free service. The Makita SP6000 track saw is no different- it is a joy to use. It has plenty of power and makes perfect cuts. I used it with my son-in law to cut cabinet grade birch plywood for kitchen drawers. The scribing feature allows you to skim the surface of sheet goods to avoid chipping. Cuts are accurate and square. (I am still on good terms with my son-in law).

I didn't even know track saws existed!. With this saw, the tracks, and clamps, I can make a perfectly square plywood box! Its much faster and accurate than a home made guide. Dust collection is very good too. Finding the right connection for the dust exhaust is an issue. I still haven't found the perfect one. The depth guide is in metrics. I am very pleased with this saw!!

Totally unusable. Got a replacement that is straight and now I'm pretty happy with it. The 1/16 cut lock is sticky but otherwise everything works as expected.

This saw is good at dust containment and the dust that does escapes the vacuum drops with in a few feet for easier clean up. One needs to manage both the power cord and the vacuum hose while cutting and that can be a pain. Over head management will help. The track guide does have a non slip backing and generally works except when dusty, when your cutting surface is not flat (I sometimes use a pair of 2x4s over saw horses as an example of possible non flat) or if you are not managing the hose/cord duo. I took to clamping backer 1x2s 90 degrees to the track to keep it from slipping back. The saw has a quick set to cut a shallow kerf before cutting through. In Melamine, this precut created a near chip free cut using the standard blade. When cutting at 45 degrees the saw is over balanced and wants to tip. There is a lock that holds it flat on the track if your track is clamped down. Other wise that is one more thing to manage while cutting. Do consider buying the track clamps.
