The Makita 5007MG 7-1/4 in. Magnesium Circular Saw features highly durable magnesium components and a powerful 15-amp Makita-built industrial motor. The 5007MG seamlessly balances weight, power, durability, and ease of use, making it the most refined circular saw on the market. A built-in dust blower clears the line of cut for more accurate and precise cuts. The 5007MG is built for framing walls, floors and roofs using a range of dimensional lumber and dense engineered lumber, including LVL, PSL and I-Joists, headers, and microlams; as well as ripping panels such as plywood, OSB, particle board, and dense structural panels. Other applications include plunge and bevel cutting, as well as masonry and metal cutting.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 41 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No regrets.. Great saw at a good price. Cuts through 100 year old Fir 2x4s with ease. This is one of the tools that made me a fan of Makita. October 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Don't underestimate the value of a light saw! We are in the middle of a basement renovation and builidng a large deck in our backyard. Our old circular saw was not up to the job. We needed something that was going to be light and reliable. We have not been disappointed. Cutting 4x8 sheets of plywood, pressure treated lumber and composite decking material - this saw has handled it all with ease. We have been especially happy that this saw is so lightweight since we have had to do a lot of cutting on the deck while the boards are in place. We'd recommend this saw to anyone. June 11, 2008
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Graham (Cabinet Maker) This is by far the best all round circular saw on the market. The power to weight ratio is incredible, and the accuracy of cut is unmatched. I have used all the big name saws out there and have found this one has put them all to shame. Makita has really put a lot of thought into this machine with the easy angle adjustments and the fact that you can adjust the pitch of the blade to the shoe from underneath so your cuts are always accurate. I have used this saw for furniture making and also deck and fence building and it handles even the hardest and wettest of wood with ease and no binding, way to go Makita. This saw is a must for any serious carpenter or D.I.Y. person it won't ever let you down. Get it from Home Depot because the price is good too. But like everything in life you only get what you pay for but at this price its a bargain. January 10, 2009
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The perfect saw for any jobsite Have been using this saw for about 4 months now for concrete forming and I must say it is exactly what i've been looking for. Saw cuts as good or better then any saw i've ever used, switchs to all angles with ease. Extreamly light weight and small, aka very easy to store. I've used the top dewalt, bosche. ryobi skill saws and this is my fav that I have used to date. I recommend this to anyone in need of a circular saw. May 27, 2008
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Nice Saw This is a very nice circular saw. When shopping, I was also looking at Milwaukee's 6390-21. To me, this Makita felt like it had better balance in my hand, when using the saw with one hand. When I would hold the Milwaukee in one hand, it felt out of balance. It also felt heavier. To me, this is important, since I am mostly using this saw to cut 2x4 boards using one hand. The Makita also has an LED light which illuminates your cut path. I did not base my purchase on this feature, but it has turned out that it is more useful than I thought it would be. It does help you to see your cut path better. The only downside is that if the saw is plugged in, the LED light is always on, there is no way to turn the light off, from what I can tell. So, you just need to remember to unplug the saw when you are done. The saw has plenty of power, and has not bogged down, even when ripping a wet pressured treated 2x9, with a 24T blade. This saw was a little more expensive than the Milwaukee, but I felt that the extra cost was justified for the balance of the saw. I also felt like the Makita was made a little better, in particular the guard that surrounds the blade. The Milwaukee felt like it had plastic, where as the Makita has a metal (Magnesium). I am very pleased with my purchase, and recommend this saw to anyone. January 14, 2015
