Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by albert top notch saw
bought this same saw in 1982 at the time i was a professional home framer, it spent 8 years on the job site working all day every day. to this day i still have the saw and still works as good as the day i bought it. so i bought another one just because... you cant buy another saw as good as this one

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SushiArch Great piece of machinery
The product seems to be in excellent condition and appears to be high quality. I bought it as a gift so I have not used it but looked at it closely.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by build powerful but not comfortable
the saw is a good cutting saw but the place where you put your idol hand is very uncomfortable. it doesn't fit your left hand very well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KEVIN Easy to use right out of the box, great power
I have used it on several projects and many green treated 2x10's. No problem at all

I purchased this saw for my son. I have had the the same saw for years and cannot say enough good about it. I hope he has the same results as I have had.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by w4tsr this product has great features and is a performer!!!
I tried a few of the cheaper saws. Decided to go with a higher dollar saw and no regrets here. This is a great saw and you can even replace the motor brushes unlike the cheaper saws. I expect this saw to last me a lifetime!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perrito Does what I expect.
I had been putting off buying a circular saw for more than a year until last month. This product is exactly what I want. Nothing fancy, no complaint either. Overall, I am happy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by womanwithtools Very durable
This is my second Makita circular saw, which I would not have had to buy if the first one (which I purchased in 1989) had not "walked away." This is an extremely durable product, easy to change blades, I would definitely buy it again. Hopefully, this one will stay closer to home!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rayhill Really good saw!
I have the older model of this saw that I bought at HD, the 5007NB which is about 7 years old. If this new model is anything like the one I have, it's a winner. Nice aluminum base plate with a smooth operating motor. Cuts like a charm. Mine doesn't have the LED lights.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ratzilla Makita generally speaks for itself.
Pro features and performance. The online price beat the retail store by a whopping 33% but beware of their shipping.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Parttimecutter This product works great.
Best circular saw that I've ever owned. It cuts very clean. Also was searching for an American made product. I'd read that this was but couldn't verify it on the box. All others were made elsewhere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handyman This product does what it is suppose to do and does it well
This is my second one. Had the first for years and it served me well. It just couldn't handle Sandy (the storm) otherwise I'd still be using it.
