Questions & Answers

Does this package include two or four batteries?

Not sure how “bonus two pack” is applied here.

Does it come with clamps for the track?

I'm looking st the Home Depot promotion kit, which includes 2 extra batteries and a track but there's no mention of the required clamps in the description or the photos.
Asked by: Leaf
This does not come with clamps, the strips on the bottom of the track creates enough traction to keep them in place without the clamps. You can buy additional clamps but I used this just fine without them

When plunging the saw down on the track, the blade hits the splinter guard. Is this suppose to happen? Seems like it would cut the splinter guard so I haven't tried cutting with it yet.
Asked by: Craig
Yes, the splinterguard reduces tear outs /splinters in the work surface so you will have a nice clean cut
Answered by: SmokedNeckbones

does it come with track, if it doesn't why not!

Asked by: stephan456
This kit doesn’t include a track or a dust collectior. Some kits do but I don’t know the item number. You can also buy the components as a bare tool saw with individual single batteries, charger and even the Tanos boxes all separately. There are different sizes of guide rail available. 55” and 118”. I recommend owning both lengths plus dust extraction and a large flat table that can support sheet goods with rigid foam board insulation panel as a sacrificial cutting surface to help with dust collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2, 5ah batteries last about 1 hour of production style cutting. Even up to 2 hours depending on ... 2, 5ah batteries last about 1 hour of production style cutting. Even up to 2 hours depending on the material and pressure used to push the saw through the material. Mine has performed exceptionally well production cutting as you might do with a corded tool. I’ve done tens of thousands of repetitive cuts with this saw, running it all day for weeks on end. The saw is very accurate and the bevel cuts are equally as accurate to the bottom edge of the anti-splinter strip. The saw runs very smooth and cuts very smooth as expected from Makita tools. It comes with a 55 tooth blade and spins it 2,500 to 6,300 rpm which is adjustable with a speed dial. It feels like it keeps the speed in the cut for any given speed setting and a small green light near the battery level indicators lights up when the saw is maintaining speed under load. The available high speed, the 55 tooth blade plus the automatic speed change feature combined make for an extremely smooth feel when cutting. If you have a second pair of 5ah batteries then you will be able to have two charged before you can ever run the two installed on the saw out of power. The plunge action pivots the blade into a plunge cut on an arc from a pivot point near base at the rear of the saw. You do have to keep a little forward pressure when plunge cutting and take it slow or it will kick back. My track has a cut in it from the saw kicking back on someone. There are now about 4 inches of the splinter strip that I can’t use The saw is very light weight and easy to use. The dust collection works very well and removes almost all of the dust if the dust collector hooked up to it is decent. I’ve had ok success even with an in-expensive Ridgid shop vac. Very smooth running and relatively quiet. It has a full featured set of adjustable controls. The blade size is interchangeable with other brand’s replacement blades but Makita does use a 165mm blade as does DeWalt (I also own the cordless DeWalt track saw). Most track saws use a 160mm blade and most replacement blades are 160mm. As long as the arbor is 20mm and the blade is 165mm or less it will work well in the tool. The blade the saw comes with is has a 2.2mm kerf as do most replacement blades whether they’re Makita or any other brand including DeWalt and many Tenryu. The replacement splinter strip and friction strips for the track are easy to find and are relatively in-expensive to replace but will last around 5-10 thousand cuts and last longer when used with dust collection. They usually only need replacement from improper storage or kick-back cutting into them. The cases are great and are compatible with certain Festool cases and dust collectors with storage connections on the top. The saw is comparable with Festool tracks as well but the Makita tracks cost less and are equally well made. Overall, this saw is a professional precision tool that performs well, is also reliable, powerful and durable. I hope this review is helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Saw This Track saw is great! I bought it yesterday and can already tell i am going to love it! It is very conparable to festool’s battery operated track saw and i love that the makita and festool parts and tools work interchangeably (cases, tracks, saws, etc.). The two 5 A.H. batteries provide as much power as a cord, and it rips through the wood with ease! Makita says itll make 135 cuts through plywood before needing a recharge, but i havent cut with it enough to know yet. My store had a deal going on where if you bough the saw (which clmes with two 5AH batteries), you got two more 5 AH batteries and a 55” track for free. This is a great deal considering that the batteries are normally $150 a piece and the track is $99 on its own. All in all, i know im going to love this saw, and its gonna make cabinetry a breeze from here on out.

This is the only track saw/plunge saw I have used, but I have use corded and cordless circular saws and wormdrive saws. Although it seems like just another circular saw, it's almost a completely different type of saw. The closest I could compare it to is using a circular saw with a guide. With careful use I would say you could get similar results, but with a track saw it's so much easier and more consistent. For one there is no measuring for the offset from the edge of the shoe to the blade, once the track has be trimmed on it's first use it's place the track where you want the cut, place the saw on it and cut. The saw glides effortlessly on the track compared to a circular saw. When using a guide with a circular saw and an appropriate blade the cut quality looks the same. What I like this for is to making accurate cuts and doing it with minimal effort and fuss. Now a circular saw for me is relegated to rough cuts and framing type cutting. A track saw/plunge cut is more for trim/finish work and craft/project/furniture making stuff. The saw comes with a case for the saw and for the charger that can be stacked and locked together. They feel like brittle plastic that will crack if dropped, but nice to have a case for the saw. I have also experienced how much nicer it is to have a cordless saw, and this one has all the same benefits. Like other cordless saws I have it has a soft start and brake which i really like. But I am going to guess it is not as powerful as a corded one. But for the cuts you would use this on I don't think it's much of an issue, you could make multiple cuts instead of one deep cut. The overall construction of the saw is nice but does not have the rugged feel of most circular saws. Again the plastic feels lower end, but I don't see this saw getting the same treatment as most circular saws. All the adjustment on the saw are clearly marked and easy to use. The saw only needed minor adjustment so it did not wiggle on the track. Everything else was looked to be set square out of the box. Another surprise was how quiet this was compared to all the other saws I have used corded and cordless. The shop vac was louder. Nice added bonus I was not expecting
