Awesome quality and performance.

  • 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 when you need to change the blade. There is a spring loaded blade damper that rides on the side of the blade that I didn't see on other saws. It has the power to do the job.

Great tool for mild steel

Tom S, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Picked one of these up to cut 1" and 2" square mild steel tube for some home fabrication projects. My previous experience with metal cutting (at work several years ago) was vertical and horizontal band saws, and abrasive chop saws. For cutting tube, I think this is easily the best option. Just as fast (or faster) than an abrasive wheel, but nice and clean and cool like you'd have from a saw. Ultimately I'm very happy with it.

  • Summary: Very good saw. Used it for cutting square tubing for building my trailer. My friend has had the same model for quite some time and builds off-road vehicles for a living with this saw. He has zero complaints and his cuts just as well!

I probably shouldn't have tried that

A. Hearn, Amazon

  • Summary: Exceptional saw. Until til I cut a 1/2" piece of high-strength alloy. Now shopping for a new blade. Take-home lesson - MILD steel only. It even says so in the instructions. If you read that kinda thing. The OEM blade runs about $110, trying my luck with the Irwin version for $60- Irwin Industrial Tools 4935558 12-Inch 60-Tooth Metal Cutting Circular Saw Blade for Ferrous Steel Will report those results. Meanwhile saw still works great & is a pleasure to use.

awesome saw for metal fabrication work.

  • Summary: As a metal fabricator/ mechanic you count on good tools to make fast work of tasks at hand. After buying and recieving this saw just a few hours ago, and using it to cut a few items. Me and My son both looked at each other and said WOW! We should have gotten this saw years ago. I have been in the past cutting metal with a torch, plasma cutting, and cut-off wheels on grinders.

  • Summary: We use two of these saws in our shop to cut anything from from aluminum to stainless half round to all thread. Buy the correct blades for the material and you will cut more faster with minimal deburing.
