            Defective?
            Everything is fine that you'd expect it to be. Cuts well, easy adjustment of bevels, depth. My problem is that the blade does NOT line up with the sight guide for zero degrees. It's off by 1/16th. This causes the side of the shoe to be 2 9/16" instead of 2 1/2". Might not seem like a big deal, but it matters for laps in framing houses. Not sure if mine is defective, or they're all like this. Yes the blade is square to the shoe.

              Makita kills it again!
              As a handyman/carpenter I use this for everything from fence work to remodeling and this is another amazing tool in Makita’s line. It has plenty of power for cutting through your standard dimensional lumber like yellow pine and Douglas Fir, Poplar. It also lasts a long time, and it only uses one single 40v battery, so you don’t need to carry as many batteries now. The saw features like depth adjustment and bevel adjustments operate smoothly. It’s also about as heavy as your usual battery operated rear handle circular saws, so this thing is no lightweight.

              Portable, light weight and powerful
              Makita 40V Max XGT Brushless Cordless Rear Handle 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw Kit (4.0 Ah) Pros: Comes with 40 V 4ah battery and charger, electric brake, heavy duty, automatic torque drive, rapid charger, battery charge level indicator, die-cast magnesium base. Cons: A rip fence is not included but is available as an option At 11. 7 lbs this heavy duty 7 ¼ inch saw is lighter and more maneuverable than my old corded model. I was also surprised at how much quieter it is than my corded model. The addition of an electric brake makes this portable saw safer and ready for re-use more quickly. On my bench test the saw cut through a 2X4 with complete ease and control. The thoughtful design includes a hook for temporarily hanging the saw from a hook or cable. The saw comes with a built-in offset wrench for changing the blade. . The kit comes with a sturdy canvas carrying case, the saw, 40V 4ah battery, and fast charger. The tool, battery and charger come with 3-year warranty. The battery took about one hour to charge fully. Highly Recommended

              Well made powerful saw
              This is the first time I have owned a rear handle circular saw and have to admit, it gives me more control on long cuts than traditional handle position saws. Cutting capacity is a little over 2 1/2 inches and the 40volt power supply delivers maximum power under heavy load. Bevel cuts can be made up to 53 degrees. The carrying case is large enough to carry the saw, charger, battery and other items as needed. The only thing that surprised me about this saw was the noise the charger makes when the battery is being charged. This is certainly not a deal breaker, but it was surprising, most chargers are silent in charge mode.

              Powerful, Sophisticated Professional Cordless Rear Handle Saw
              For years I've dragged my corded sidewinder 7 1/4" circular saw to Eagle Projects and weekend Scout Camp work parties building outdoor structures and furniture. I've always been very limited by the need for a cord and to be honest, more power. I've finally taken the plunge and stepped up to a cordless, brushless rear handle-style saw. What impressed me most about the Makita XGT 40V 7 1/4" Circular Saw is the Soft Start and Electronic Brake. I got an old 2 x 12 treated Southern Pine scrap to pretend that I was cutting steps in an outdoor stair stringer. The first cut I made was at an acute angle--the kind were it is difficult to line up with the lay line. The wider two-handed stance of the rear handled saw gives confidence--it was easy to keep my stance and sight the cut line notch. But what really astounded me was turning on the saw--no torque kick--as the Soft Start spun up the saw without jerking me. I smoothly plowed through 2" nominal pressure treated pine like butter. The thin-kerfed 24 tooth Makita saw blade made an effort-less, very smooth cut (leaving some blue paint on the first cut). This hasn't been my experience--I'm used to having to push my old sidewinder a little bit and the cuts weren't glossy smooth. The Electronic Brake stopped the blade within about a second after taking my finger off the trigger. Again, no jerk, just smooth operation. I love the onboard intelligence that provides the Soft Start and Electronic Brake. This same wizardry automatically regulates the speed of the saw sensing High Torque Vs. High Speed situations. It also protects against overloads and certain kick-back situations (the blade getting pinched). Cool. (Yes, it protects against thermal overloads as well.) The Foot Plate and much of the saw is made from Magnesium for strength and weight savings. The Kit comes with a 40V Max (36V nominal) Li-ion 4 Amp hour battery and the highest-tech rapid charger that I own. I plugged in the battery and a fan turned on. I didn't expect that. I came back after watching a show and the big battery was fully charged. The Bevel Angle Adjustment has a thumb operated lever and a positive stop/détente dial that can be set for 22.5, 45 and 53 degrees. The Depth Cut Scale is easy to read and a thumb lever that makes it easy to set up the saw blade so that the bottom of the gullets between the teeth are just protruding from the bottom of the work piece to prevent kick-backs. The offset blade changing wrench stores conveniently on the back/bottom of the saw just above the magnesium footplate. The kit comes with a 7 1/4" Narrow Kerf 24 carbide tooth Makita framing blade that works unusually well for an included blade. I ordered three more! There is a rafter hook for hanging the saw if so desired. The saw comes with a nicely executed sewn work duffle. There is a vacuum port on the left hand of the saw that has a removable plug. The Foot Plate is set up for an optional Edge Guide and there is a hard point to attach a Tether to. This is a very well mannered, sophisticated tool with the power and smoothness to inspire confidence, even when cutting thick treated lumber. 5 Stars for a sweet tool.

              Having 1 battery in the center makes it so much easier to balance while making cuts. Still one of my favorite brands.
