  • Summary: This planer works GREAT. The only problem is that the really thin tungsten carbide blades break easily. While planing rough spots on a large treated pine deck, the planer started to gouge the wood. I discovered that both blades had broken into several pieces but were still locked into the blade holders and cutting the wood at weird angles. I bought two pairs of replacement blades and will have to monitor their condition more closely in the future.

... this saw for a month & have not been disappointed. It cuts anything from plywood

Tommy C, Amazon

  • Summary: Been using this saw for a month & have not been disappointed. It cuts anything from plywood, MDF, pressure treated, 4x4's, 2x10's, basically it's become my go to saw on the job site. Buy a 40 tooth diablo blade & you will really appreciate what this saw is capable of. The new Makita 4.0 ah batteries are also a sound investment to get the most out of it.

Good saw but not great.

MC, CPO
8 October 2014
  • Excerpt: I have been using the Festool track saw for about 12 or 13 years. Unfortunately, the motor finally gave out. Since I am semi-retired now, buying the new Festool was cost prohibitive. Plus, I am assuming that I will not put as many hours on the new tool as I have in the past. After researching the newer alternatives such as the Dewalt and Makita, I chose to go with the Makita for two reasons. One, the Makita has gotten better reviews than the Dewalt.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Grip, Powerful

What a super nice tool to have

George C. Olguin, Amazon
17 September 2014
  • Summary: What a super nice tool to have. It works great! You DO NEED the larger 18 volt battery. The smaller ones will not work. It cuts true and is well built. I've used it many times. It's not heavy and has adjustable blade depth. In order to get to know this tool, I made some lines on some practice wood. That way I knew where the blade cuts and how true it is. Then when I got to my real tasks I knew where along my measurements the blade was going to cut.

Tool is fine, but the battery is junk

Tony, Amazon
26 August 2014
  • Summary: I bought it a couple of years ago for it's light weight, high torque, and the Makita name. I was wrong. The Li-on battery (BL1815) is junk and the Makita service techs are all prepared with a company line about storing my tools in a "controlled environment". If this tool needs coddling, I need another drill. I'll hang on to my Makita corded tools, but this one is going in the garbage.

  • Summary: Plenty of power but you need to be careful of the cord. I have already nicked the cord with the planer while using it. The depth controls work perfectly and allows me to shape the wooden paddle board I'm making.
