Excellent Saw!

Pachyderm, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a top-notch circular saw! I have struggled for the last five years with an inexpensive Ryobi 6.5" saw with this base that seems impossible to dial in so that it is of any sort of use to me.

  • Summary: This saw is a beast. I work construction, we use Dewalt impacts and drills, Milwaukee sawz-alls and Makita circular saws. I couldn't bring myself to buy a cheap $50 saw. I bent the plate on my B&D Piranha after tossing across the yard when I screwed up a cut on $500 door cuz the angle was jacked up.

NOT WORTH A $%&#

  • Summary: Made in China,cheapness. Stickers came off first job. The motor is weak, even though it's supposedly stronger than older models. Why they changed the depth adjustment lever from right to left I don't understand. The honey-combed plate traps sawdust after every cut.

Amazing Saw

Logan Zwei, Amazon

  • Summary: Background: After a ton of research and some time in various stores handling different sidewinders, I opted for the Makita 5007MG (for those who are looking for an electric blade brake, you want to the 5007MGA). As a disclaimer I am not a professional construction worker or carpenter.

This is a great saw!

  • Summary: I choose this saw based on 30 years of experience using Makita tools. I have bought and used several other brands and I am back to Makita. All adjustments work smooth, the depth and bevel. It cuts great with as much power as I can remember in any 7 1/4" circ. saw.

Finally a circular saw to get excited about

RJMelling, Amazon
17 April 2013
  • Summary: Being a carpenter I want tools that are both nice to use but robust and reasonably costworthy. Hmmm, thats a lot to ask! So I bought this saw a wee while ago and it exceeded all my expectations - I did'nt think it was possible to get excited about a circular saw but there I was going "Wow!

Great saw, but…

Johnner, Amazon
18 January 2013
  • Summary: Well balanced and powerful, this is a great saw. Square up the base before you use it, mine was off a little. Just as another reviewer noted, the missing corner on the base can cause issues if you aren't careful. Another minor issue, right out of the box it is loud. Really loud.
