Questions & Answers

Does this kit come with tool box?

Asked by: Hamilton
Ships loose in a plastic box with no padding or foam. Saw was damaged from trashing around in its case. Replacement was even worse.

When I put the saw on the guide rail to make a cut for the fist time, the blade was coming down on the rubber stripe of the guide rail to cut,

is this saw suppose to cut the guide rail rubber on the very first cut with the saw,
Asked by: William54
yes, the first cut establishes the cut line for all subsequent cuts, and then also prevents future splintering on the inside of the cut.

12 Amp 6-1/2 in. Corded Plunge Saw with 55 in. Guide Rail, 48T Carbide Blade and Hard Case is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 107.

My table saw could not provide the accuracy and it was a hassle trying to rip 8' sheets of plywood. For two years I used aluminum guide rails with my circular saw to save money but the frustration was too much. I scrapped too many expensive sheets because the saw "moved" laterally. The dust collection port connects perfectly to my Dewalt DWV010 HEPA vacuum which I also bought here at Home Depot. Now I can cut pieces in my basement with sawdust cleanup remaining minimal. Now that I'm used to the vacuum turning on and off with the saw, I can't go back! I do have one complaint directed at Makita: pack the saw & guide rail better. My saw bounced so much that the plastic tray in the bottom was busted. If you pay $400 plus for tool, is a $1 piece of foam at the top too much to ask for? Show a little respect to your customers please. Also, my guide rail had some cosmetic damage at the corners from poor packaging. Not a show stopper but very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best saw ever. I researched track saws for over a year. If you have unlimited funds, then go with Festool. If you don't want to spend $200 to $300 more than is necessary, then the Makita is for you. With the DeWalt you can use both sides of the track. I really liked this, but not for an extra $100. The Triton was a good value, but it will not slide freely backwards on the track. That was a deal breaker for me. I have used my Makita many hours now. It has performed flawlessly. I have used it to break down various thicknesses of plywood and have trimmed large doors. The saw did its job suberbly. I purchased the DeWalt clamps. They are cheaper and work like the Irwin quick clamps. The one and only negative that I have with the Makita is the length of the track. I wish that it was 59 inches like the DeWalt. It was not a deal breaker. You cannot go wrong if you purchase the Makita. Do not let the lack of a riving knife keep you from purchasing this saw. I have yet to encounter a situation where a it was needed. Do not wait a year to buy this saw like I did. Buy it now!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Should have read the bad reviews... I read about 50 reviews about the saw on different sites. Should have paid attention to the bad ones. The saw came in a big box from Home Depot with no cushioning of any kind. The Makita container had very awkward latches on four sides. You could break a finger trying to open it... But here is the worst news: the saw is loose inside! no straps, no holders, no styrofoam even! Did I buy a precision tool or a big rattle toy??? The saw did not cut square. Took a lot of power to push it on guide rails. Blade was burning the wood on one side. After cutting two sheets of 8x4 melamine boards blade was useless. The angle scale was off by about 3 degrees. The angle of a finished cut was 87degrees on one and 92 on the second one. Release button had to be wiggled to push. Thanks to HD return policy I was able to get my money back. Got the Festool instead and could not be happier! It was worth the extra $200 and some.
