About This Product

The Makita 6-1/2 in. Plunge Cut Circular Saw and 55 in. Guide Rail work together to produce accurate cuts with minimal tear-out.

      Q:Could you cut a 5 ft porcelain tile with this saw? I need to cut 5 inches off the entire edge of a 5 ft tile plank.

      Answer This Question

      A:  porcelain tile should be cut with a special blade and a wet saw. I would not advise using a circular saw regardless of the blade.

          Base not flat
          The base is not flat, about 1/8 inch, causing the saw to wobble on the track. I purchased two, and both were the same. I've checked the xgt model and the base is flat. It's disappointing. I've been running makita tools for years, both professionally and home use. I've never had an issue until now. Luckily HD is easy with returns.

            Fantastic Buy, Home Depot is the only place to get a Makita.
            Forget about all those other saws, it's time to get the one and only saw you may ever need. It is light,can sit flat on any surface , has plenty of power. . Most importantly it cuts like butter and leaves the cleanest cuts in those expensive plywood purchases and is accurate to the nth degree. I read all the reviews and watched the videos and until you hold it and use it well.... you will see that it is awesome Other things to note: The case is a large cube like box that has plenty of room for guide rail clamps. Dewalt rail clamps work well with this rail. The rail has blue anti friction like surface strips that let the saw slide smooth and easy. Underneath the rail the rubber strips hold tight to the work surface and prevent the need for clamps but I use the clamps just to be safe. Use a a shop vac with this saw and there is little to no dust. I like this saw so much, I keep inventing ways to use it. Home Depot has the price about what it was selling for almost a year ago. I think that most people are finding that this saw is as good if not better than Fess Tool, and for this reason it is getting harder to find a good price for this saw. So I would not delay and get one ASAP.

            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.

            Saw glides very well on track. Smooth plunge unlike the awkward plunge on the dewalt. Only improvement would be a longer cord. Overall it’s worked amazing for completing my finished stairs.

            If you are on the fence about buying this saw...save your back and buy this. It's great for breaking down sheets of plywood. I use the Diablo blades and I've gotten better than factory cuts with this. I love the scoring pass for UV pre finished plywood.

            Saw does a nice job of cutting up plywood. I just got it so I can't comment on its longevity.

            Won't make square cuts
            Marketing verbiage from Makita for this product states it makes precise cuts. To me, that means I should be able to make square cuts. In fact, I would assume most users typically make square cuts. I have taken my saw to the Makita Support Center and even with it out of warranty, they tried to fix, but couldn't get it to cut at 90 degrees, so they didn't charge me. Now, I'm waiting to see if Makita will do anything about it. Don't buy this saw IF you need square cuts.
