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.

15 Amp 7-1/4 in. Magnesium Hypoid Circular Saw is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 26.
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.

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 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.
