The Makita 6-1/2 in. Plunge Cut Circular Saw and 55 in. Guide Rail (model SP6000J1) work together to produce accurate cuts with minimal tear-out. The saw combines a powerful 12-Amp motor and a large cutting capacity with magnesium components for less weight and electronic speed control to maintain constant speed under load for smooth cutting and a splinter-free mirror finish. The SP6000J1 is a more portable option to a table saw for select applications, and it is ideal for use on the jobsite or in a workshop.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Bad packaging. Track quality not so great. Do yourself a favor and order two at once and pick the best of the two orders. First order saw safety lever was damage. Saw is built nice with great features, made in UK. Second order the track was warped (not flat, off 1/4inch) track made in china. Saw comes not protected and can just bounce around in case during shipping. Got the Kit on sale so will work fine for half the cost of a fest tool. March 9, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by needs better packaging saw has bent plunge mechanism from being loose in case, and made in China rail is bent and not flat like it sould be. March 14, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by needs improvement the saw has a about 1/8 of an inch of sideway movement while riding on track.... not acceptable if you need precise straight line cutting. you can cut straight but need to keep it from veering off to one side while cutting. was dissapointed by this especially when i considered buying Festool tracksaw... i learned my lesson. you get what you pay for March 11, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by not accurate this saw is not accurate, guide rail is not manufactured flat and so the saw rocks side to side on rail and does not make a square cut. I get a better cut from my circular saw and a shooting board. March 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tool! Buy this saw. It is a very precise cutting tool with many features. It is very accurate and will allow you to make those cuts you never could make accurately before. I just used it to cut 1 1/2" butcher block. The cuts were spot on, resulting in a perfect fit for the table tops. There are other track saws on the market (DeWalt, Festool) which I also considered. But I went with the Makita based on a cost / feature comparison. High quality tool; can't wait to use again for other precision work. August 9, 2013
