What does the saw come with?

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.

Can you attach a dust extraction accessory to this saw?

Asked by: MikeM
Makita does not offer a dust extraction accessory for the Makita 15 Amp 7-1/4 in. Magnesium Hypoid Circular Saw (5377MG) at this time. For a circular saw with dust extraction, please review the 7-1/4" Circular Saw with Dust Collector ( 5057KB) to see if this product will meet your needs.

Is it normal for this saw to make a chatter sound when it is spooling down?

I recently purchased this saw and started using it for some 2x4 cuts. When running the saw and not attempting to cut a piece of wood, after releasing the trigger and allowing the saw to spool down, there is a chattering sound for a second or two before it completely stops. Is this normal operation for this circular saw? I checked the blade arbor and confirmed that it was properly tightened, so the blade is not loose. Since I am not familiar with using this tool (or circular saws in general), I'm uncertain if this sound is normal.
Asked by: CBiz
Since we are unable to identify the sound that you are hearing, we would recommend that you take your saw to your nearest Makita Authorized Service Center or Makita Factory Service Center. A Service Technician can determine if your saw is performing normally. You can find a listing of our service centers at www.makitatools.com under the SERVICES link.

15 Amp 7-1/4 in. Magnesium Hypoid Circular Saw is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good saw that does the job First time owner and user of a circular saw. Used it to cut 2x4 and plywood and it did great. Feels like it weighs less than a gallon of milk.Adjustment levers are pretty stiff, which gives them a good hold even though they are a little tougher to free up than I'd like. This saw would get 5 stars if it had a longer cord and laser guide. Overall very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well-balanced and light-weight saw. I haven't been this pleased with a circular saw in many years... Well-balanced and light-weight saw. I haven't been this pleased with a circular saw in many years. The rubber feet on the levers are more comfortable than imagined. Easy to adjust depth and angles. Good for the contractor, good for the weekend DIY'er.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
