The Makita 5007MGA 7-1/4 in. Magnesium Circular Saw with Electric Brake features highly durable magnesium components and a powerful 15-ampMakita-built industrial motor. The 5007MGA 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 5007MGA 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 4.3 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Circular Saw Great balance, smooth cutting operation. I like the electric brake though some reviews say this will eventually fail. Mine has not, but I'm just a homeowner not a pro. Lastly I'm just a Makita fan. August 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bought 2- also for my father in-law.Highly recommend! Only saw used for entire 1500 ff addition Cut douglas fir smooth A+++ Love the light and the brake is well worth the Price! November 14, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best 7 1/4" Circular Saw on the Market This saw cuts really well. I mainly use it to cut plywood and 2x4s and it cuts through them like butter. I work on wooden sawhorses that allow me to cut through them without having to stop and re-position the plywood sheet. This saw is so smooth that I can't even tell when I'm cutting through the sawhorse. The electric brake is definitely worth the money. However, the rip fence wasn't as practical as I had expected it to be. My suggestion is to make a rip fence yourself and clamp it to whatever work piece your using. This saw has a good weight to it and is very user-friendly. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for more than a run of the mill circular saw. September 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best professional tool The best quality tools help produce the best construction. My 20 year old Makita saw still works, but the accuracy was declining (I was worried that it was me...low t or something). New saw leaves one half of the pencil line, dead on. Old Makita will be demoted to cutting Hardie board. January 21, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Two shipped saws. Two cracked cases. Shipped saw had cracked case twice. Did not have a chance to try the saw yet. October 30, 2013
