Very good saw

Dan C., Amazon

  • Summary: A great metal cutting saw. Very fast and burr free cut. The fence is sturdy and easy to adjust. The quick release for the clamp works smoothly. I made a generator box as a project for my enclosed trailer and this tool was a great time saver. It performed flawlessly without any problems.

THIS SAW CAN CUT AT 45° ANGLE.

Anton Pustovar, Amazon
22 June 2015
  • Summary: The 45° feature was not clear in the description and reviews. Very nice metal saw. I was immediately impressed with the quality of clamping vise. Nice little detail is small notch that securely catches steel angle if placed down like this Λ. I cut regular mild steel angle and square tubing with it.

Best way to frame with metal

D. Opolinsky, Amazon
9 April 2015
  • Summary: Very well made and much superior to abrasive cutoff machines. The blade is unbelievably fast through heavy mild steel angle and tube. Cutting a 2" angle has the feel and speed of cutting a 2 x 4 with a similarly sized miter saw for wood with no sparks and much less mess than an abrasive wheel.

Very nice saw.

Jerry, Amazon
22 March 2015
  • Summary: This thing goes through steel like a hot knife through butter. Nice, clean, and accurate cuts with hardly a spark thrown. 500 times better than an abrasive chop saw. I mounted mine on a folding miter saw stand. Totally awesome setup.

Very good saw

Tracey Coker, Amazon
6 March 2015
  • Summary: I've never used a cold saw before, but was starting a small project and bought the Makita. It cuts steel smoothly, accurately, and easily. The edge left after the cut is smooth and looks almost polished. The clamp gets a little difficult to move after shavings begin to clog it.

Eric, Amazon
28 January 2015
  • Summary: Works awesome, I use it to cut metal balusters for stair railings. No sparks and can be used indoors with no odor like the abrasive chop saws. Well worth the extra money vs an abrasive chop saw. Smooth cuts that aren't hot and cuts faster than the abrasive saws.

My favorite tool

Erik Moore, Amazon
26 January 2015
  • Summary: I wish all of my tools were of the same quality as this saw. Compared to the other metal cutting saws I have used, this is a standout winner. The other brands I have used have cheap stamped bases or clumsy and inaccurate miters. Everything about this saw is solid, and the cuts are perfect.

Awesome quality and performance.

Chuck, Amazon
8 December 2014
  • Summary: Looked at a number of reviews, videos, compared all the features. The Makita was the quietest of the bunch, it is very well made with a solid cast aluminum base, cast iron rear vise jaw, well machined quick adjust screw, very well made metal blade guard that pivots out of the way but stays attached...
