No, which is a shame. I'd pay another $40 for a piano-hinged metal box for this saw.

What does the saw come with?

This question is from 15 Amp 7-1/4 in. Magnesium Hypoid Circular Saw
Asked by

January 21, 2014
Does this saw have a rafter hook? I know the Skilsaws do, but I'm a Makita guy. Home Depot in Canada (homedepot.ca) doesn't offer worm drive Makita's, so I have to drive to Watertown, NY; about an 8 hour round trip.

Also, in one review the guy said there was an extra-heavy duty tool belt in the box with his saw; was that a special Makita promotion or do they come with the tool belt regularly? Thanks for any insight.

Answer: 
Hello Doug and thank you for your question.
I done see a problem with using 7-1/4 blade as long as the arbor hole is the same and you don't exceed the allowed rpm's for the blade itself. Maximum allowed rpm's are indicated on the blade.
Hope this helps,
George

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Choice. Very pleased. Well worth the money. Very good quality. Very accurate, as well as not to noisy. April 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great saw This saw is great i have used it to frame out a garage and build a shed along with some other jobs and this saw performs great , very powerfull and comfortable to operate all day. The built in rafter hook comes in handy when on a ladder or up on rafters and its also great to hang off saw horses to keep your saw off the ground ,the overall construction of the saw is great very well made im sure this saw will last a long time .so if your in the market for a circular saw look no further this is one of the best ones i have used February 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool, powerful, & easy to use Only used a few times, but I like the extra power and ability to see the blade while cutting, over my previous saw. January 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by An excellent alternative to the classic sidewinder OK. A little background on what I do. I am not just a DIY'er. I am a construction professional by trade and I do this for a living. It supports my family and I and is not just a hobby. This saw is not targeted at the typical DIY'er. If you are a DIY'er or homeowner and you insist on buying an "in-line" saw (wormdrive/hypoid), you will need to note that these saws tend to have a sideways kick when you pull the trigger. But anyway, without further ado, let's move on to the pros and cons: The good: This saw has plenty of power to spare. It will cut/or rip 2" thick oak boards or wet PT (pressure treated) lumber with ease. It is a safe saw when used properly and will handle almost anything you throw at it. The foot plate is designed well even for thin materials. The handle is comfortable for long periods of use even for a carpenter with sausage-sized fingers. Beats the Ridgid in terms of power and weight. Beats the Dewalt in terms of power, cutting speed, and ergonomics. Falls short of the Skilsaw SPT77WM in terms of power and cutting speed. The Not-so-good: It has some shortcomings, however. First, my biggest disappointment is that the arbor is round, not diamond, so sometimes the blade slips during very heavy cutting. Also, the marks on the bevel scale can be confusing. On most saws, they are below the marks. On this saw, they are to the right, so less-experienced users may have an issue with accidentally setting this saw to wrong bevel angles. The BAD: This saw's guard worked very smoothly for every single miter and bevel cut, but tended to get stuck on compound miter cuts and when shaving off a very thin piece of material. The only way to avoid this is to lift the guard completely or almost completely out of the way before starting such cuts. This might not be an issue for the average carpenter, but it was an inconvenience for us because we stick-frame roofs and need to cut jack rafters. If you were to use this saw in isolation, it would be hard to fault. But the Skilsaw SPT77WM gets my top recommendation, followed by this saw, and then the Ridgid. December 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Versatile and Well-Built I've owned this model of saw for about three years now, and I"m strongly considering buying another one. I use this saw for a wide variety of cutting tasks in my contracting business, cutting everything from 6x6 to fiber cement siding. I'm not easy on tools---I don't abuse them, but sometimes I get pretty close. This saw has been dropped, made extremely long rip cuts in fresh treated lumber, made thousands of cuts in fiber cement siding, and even used to score flagstone with a utility blade. It has yet to fail me in any way. Pros: I've seen some complaints about the weight of the saw, but if you've ever used a worm drive/hypoid saw you'll know that the Makita is on the lighter end. The magnesium table helps. This saw is ergonomically designed, and I find that it "falls to the hand" very nicely, even when making odd cuts on vertical surfaces or awkward cuts during say, roof framing. Anything that saves wear and tear on the body is a big plus in a heavy duty circular saw. The allen wrench used for blade changes stores in the upper handle. When I first purchased the saw, I thought the wrench fit was awful loose, but it has a bit of a detent that keeps it in there. I've yet to lose an allen wrench, which is nothing short of amazing considering how often I change the blade. The saw is precise. I don't expect table saw levels of accuracy, but the Makita makes a nice cut if you know how to use the gauges on the saw. The cord is a nice, heavy duty piece that doesn't crack or split over time, even when folded up and stored in the handle. The folding skyhook is nice, although I've found that it sometimes folds a little too easily. The magnesium part of the saw has been rock solid even after multiple drops and a lot of abuse. It is a bit worn, but still nice and square. Maintenance----this is a hypoid saw, so no oil is necessary. As noted, I've used this saw for a variety of tasks that produce a lot of damaging dust (always with proper PPE) and I've had zero issues with the saw's ability to continue operating at 100%. Cons: I like the big thumb adjustments for depth and bevel. Unfortunately, those levers are often the first thing to impact if the saw gets dropped. More than once I've dropped the saw only to have the thumb lever on the saw guard get folded into the housing, which prevents the saw guard from springing back during a cut. Sure, the saw shouldn't get dropped, but it happens, and the soft metal tends to bend, making for a bind when the next adjustment is made. The depth gauge is made of a fairly malleable metal that can bend easily. If it gets bent, depth adjustment can be a little wonky. The gauges at the the front of the saw are not stamped into the magnesium, they're printed on a thick metallic sticker. Mine is starting to peel off a bit. The arbor is round, so this saw can't accommodate diamond-arbor blades. This isn't a major issue for me, but some guys get really hung up about it. The selector switch for 45 degree to 51.5 degree bevel is kind of goofy, but it makes sense once you figure it out. And the usual complaint: I really wish Makita would at least offer the option of a big metal storage box for this tool, like the one that comes with their largest recipro saw. Some tool company out there will make a mint when they realize a lot of guys would prefer a "real" box for their tools. ------------------------------------------------------------------ The only reason I'm thinking of buying another one of these is to cut down on blade changes while cutting both fiber cement siding and Miratec trim. I highly recommend this saw to any framing contractor---better than anything Skil has to offer these days, and the DeWalt/Ridgid currently out there is not up to the Makita's level. You won't regret purchasing this saw. January 2, 2016
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 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
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
