Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Strong and rips with accuracy The saw blade on the left side makes it more natural for me to cut wood. I can make a straight cut easier because it's easy to look over the blade. Being right handed, this makes handling this tool great and an advantage. It rips plywood over 1" thick with ease and without stress on the motor, at-least it seems. One downfall is that is doesn't have an electric brake. It also weighs heavy, but the price makes up for the cons November 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Saw. Great Results. This Makita saw is the best saw I've ever used. Yes, it's slightly heavier than traditional circular saws, but its the form factor that makes this saw! The cut line on the left side is easier to use. Makita did it right. I'm glad I didn't opt for a cheaper saw or a more expensive version. This is a very durable and sturdy saw. February 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing torque Was cutting old 4x8 sheets of 3/4" plywood into 3rds the long way. I picked up a cheap Harbor Freight saw on sale for $30. Cuts with that thing took 30 seconds...minimum. It didn't last 30 minutes before the motor died. Went to Home Depot to pick up another saw and was introduced to this "hypoid" saw. I didn't know a thing about worm drive and hypoid gears. I bought it and my first cut through a sheet of plywood took about 5 seconds. This saw is amazing. Powered right through the cut like it was styrofoam. I think I cut 10 sheets of plywood in the time I screwed around with 2 sheets with the Harbor Freight saw. It was so much fun, I was wishing I had more wood to cut. Awesome saw! Love it. September 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by This saw works great for ripping plywood I purchased this product after using a friends, I was truly impressed with how straight it cut without any guides. I have used it quite a bit for ripping and cutting 2x4's. It takes a little getting used to if you haven't used one, On startup there's a little torque, you have to be ready for it. July 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Quality Circular Saw, Great Price. I bought this saw a few days ago and have already made at least 100 dimentional lumber cuts and saw is going strong. As for what "Shoeless" said about the angle not being at a perfect 90 degrees, it must have been his individual saw for mine is dead on. October 29, 2011
