Amazing Workhorse/Game Changer

Chris Y, Amazon
30 June 2013
  • Summary: I had known about this tool for quite some time, but was hesitant to purchase one because I didn't know if I really "needed" it. I received it as a Christmas gift from my wife, and since slicing through it's first piece of tubing, things haven't been the same.

Makita fan

kevin sato, Amazon
12 June 2013
  • Summary: I'm a strong makita fan when it comes to cordless tools. I've actually used this particular tool from my fellow coworker and was impressed by its torque and cutting power. However this particular one that I got from Amazon seems to be defective in some way I can't explain.

Steel cutting machine!

SoCalRebelHunter, Amazon
9 December 2012
  • Summary: I'm a commercial glazier by trade and lately my job has included using and modifying steel components to secure aluminum claddings to a billion dollar hospital in So Cal. And because nothing ever fits or works like it's supposed to I found I needed to cut some steel. Look no further.

Workhorse!

JK, Amazon
26 November 2012
  • Summary: I picked this up to cut up a pile of 50 year old, twisted and bent rebar that was standing in water. I didn't want to use an electric saw because of the water. This saw cut through the rebar like a hot knife through butter. I got about 100 cuts before I had to change batteries.

A must have tool for an electrician or plumber.

mariposa, Amazon
25 November 2012
  • Summary: I purchased one years ago and have used it often and with a joy knowing how much time I saved every time I used the metal cutting saw. My brother, a licensed electrician, had recently purchased into the makita lithium cordless family.

Metal Cut Saw

Al Scott, Amazon
23 November 2012
  • Summary: Cuts great. Perfect for what we are doing. Goes thru batteries kind of fast but we have several so it's not a big issue.

Good Tool for its Intended Use

fredC, Amazon
22 November 2012
  • Summary: While it will not replace my portable bandsaw - or my 9 inch Evolution Metal-Cutting saw - it is a great lightweight alternative that finds use where its 6 pound weight and compact size make it a better alternative to the 33 pound Evolution saw. Cuts through mild steel with ease.

Works better than expected!

Guard Dad, Amazon
16 November 2012
  • Summary: I've had mine for about 2 years now, haven't used it a ton, but when I do I'm always impressed with the quality of the cut. I used it the other day to slice up some 16ga steel, and it went right through it, very smooth. I've cut up to 1/4" thick plate, and it really makes a very smooth cut.
