Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by worm drive saw This saw, though heavy, is excellent. I used it on rafters and 1/2 inch plywood. July 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality I love this saw. It makes quick and straight cuts every time. It is heavy for some but I found it to be rather comfortable. Great quality and a breeze to use. November 12, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice saw! I love this Makita saw. It gets used constantly and so far has lived up to the trusted Makita quality. My only complaint is that it does not have a brake on it. My previous worm drive / hypoid had a brake that would stop the blade as soon as the trigger was released. I think that is a valuable safety feature overlooked on this saw. October 17, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Impressive Saw The Makita Hypoid Magnesium Circular Saw is an excellent saw. In my opinion, it is fairly quiet for a circular saw, and it simply plows through wood. The framing blade that comes with the saw cuts suprisingly smooth on 3/4" plywood, not much chipout at all. Can't give any recommendation on durability but as for the product after the first couple uses, it is one solid saw. The blade allen wrench stores in the top handle of a saw which is of note because I thought that it was missing. I was pleasantly surprised that a super heavy duty tool belt came in the box with this saw. I wish they made a case for this. One other note is that this saw doesn't come with a rip guide. My guess is that someone spending $180 on a circular saw usually doesn't use a rip guide. February 6, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very well built easy to use. Bought 5377MG after reading reviews. Replaced 25 year old skill worm drive. I'm stuck on having to have left blade. The 4 lbs. lighter and just as good quality makes me wish I had bought this saw sooner. Plus when at checkout a pro carpenter raved about this brand and model saw-made the purchase even better.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful saw at reasonable price Very good saw for the price,very powerful.Cut everything I used it for including 6"x6" treated posts.It should come with a carrying case. September 17, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Light weight but powerful I like this saw because it is light weight but has plenty of power. I like the fact that it has rubber thumb adjustments for the fence. The trigger does seem to go out more then my Skill Saw though. January 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth the money Went in looking for the de Walt. Was out of stock so I spent the extra$ on this saw. Great tool. Quiet and smooth with plenty of power to cut anything. I'm not much of a Mikita fan . Have used the skill mag 77 and was not impressed. This saw impressed me. Best skill saw I have used in 25 years January 2, 2015
