Nice Tool

Linda G. Hoeck "Linda of Bel Air", Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this tool to cut shallow cuts in drywall (to remove excess drywall for patching). It works great, but the battery is not powerful enough; it loses power quickly and must be recharged.

way cool tool

lightstream, Amazon

  • Summary: Had one, needed it and couldn't find it (vague memory of someone borrowing it) bought another one. Lucky I could afford to do it at the time, two day prime shipping got it here in time for the project, I won't loose this one. It's now selling for twelve dollars less than I paid about a month ago. No problem, I needed it.

Great saw!

Suzanne, Amazon
3 January 2005
  • Summary: For all of you out there looking for a great circular saw for small jobs, I highly recommend this saw. This particular model is no longer stocked in retail stores. Mikita also makes a 14.4V, 3 3/8 inch circular saw with a snap-in vs. slide-in battery (basically the same saw, but with a more powerful battery). I don't understand why some other reviewers posted such negative feedback in reards to it's ineffectiveness, because I have had the complete opposite experience.

Huh? What am I supposed to be able to cut? Cardboard?

Rich Grace, Amazon
21 December 2004
  • Summary: This is one tool that really is just about useless. Can't cut plywood of any thickness, moldings, or just about anything else that's made of WOOD. Truly a waste of money. It has no torque and its miter adjustments are imprecise at best. I ***think*** this thing could cut paper, but I have better and cheaper tools (like a pair of scissors) for that job. Take my word for it, don't throw your money away on this item.

little stinker

khris, Amazon
25 September 2003
  • Summary: I purchased this tool to make small cuts and I thought that because it was makita it would be awesome but, it was very noisy and performed like a cheap childs toy! It would not cut through the softest of pine without effort. I finally gave up on it and found out that by using a hand saw it saved a lot of time and worked better!! I would not buy this tool even if it cost $5.00. If I hadn't lost the reciept I would have took it back.

Best Little Saw in Texas

Amazon Customer "koolkimo", Amazon
23 August 2003
  • Summary: Emphasis on "little." But... for some projects, it is indispensible. I have 4 blades for this saw and when I need to make minor/small/precision cuts, especially in hard to get to places, it's my buddy.

Disappointment

L. Hein, Amazon
25 December 2002
  • Summary: I was very disappointed in this Makita saw. I bought it thinking that I would be able to use it around the house for the times that I couldn't use my big 7 1/4" circular saw. I love Makita products, so I ...thought this product was for me. So I bought it. When I received it, I couldn't believe my eyes----NO CHARGER AND NO BATTERY---it doesn't come with the saw! Where I live, you just can't find stuff like the charger or the battery to run the thing!

Workhorse of my tool collection

Ken avery, Amazon
10 December 2002
  • Summary: When I first got this saw and powered it up, I was pretty pessimistic about its capabilities. It has totally shattered all doubts. We have used it on ripping plywood, cutting studs, sheetrock, treated lumber, extruded aluminum, and it has always performed well. The treated lumber and 5/8" plywood slowed it down, but it's light weight and small size enables you to take it along in a tool belt where larger saws would be cumbersome.
