Workhorse!

The Home Depot
13 January 2015
  • Excerpt: I have owned this saw for over 10 years, and has yet to let me down. It will power through most stock with ease, of course that is dependent on a quality blade that is sharp (no kidding, right?).

  • Excerpt: Very good out of the box. I suggest getting a stand with it. Doesn't cut larger boards. 3 1/2 inch about max at 45 degree angle. Easy to transport. Nice and small.

Ho Hum, just another solid product from Makita!

Warren W. Wiley, Amazon

  • Summary: Let me make this short: this is all the miter saw 95% of us need. You can buy bigger, fancier more powerful saws with advanced features but this is all you really need unless you're a full time Pro who does trim and molding etc. all day long.

Makita MITRE Saw

Edward M. Manns, Amazon
19 October 2012
  • Summary: Being a finish carpenter for over 30 years I can say that this saw is excellent for the budget end of the Makita line...for the price it is very much worth it. The saw cuts accurately and is light in weight for portability.

Lightweight and well built

BenQ, Amazon
30 September 2012
  • Summary: I own a hardwood flooring business and we have 4 of these saws in use and 3 Dewalt 10" and 1 Hitachi. I had the Milwaukee Magnum 10" but sold it because it was too heavy and hard to use. These Makita 10" saws have a great feel to them and are prefered by our crews.

cuts straight less filling

T. Tran, Amazon
30 September 2012
  • Summary: You'd think it would be easy to find a miter saw that cut straights, angles, and bevels accurately (without having to adjust them every time), but alas no. I went through a couple of cheaper brands hoping to save a few bucks... live and learn.
