Nice bit of kit
23-Nov-2013
By
, Essex
"Bought this as a replacement for my old rexon saw, which finally gave up after 15 years of service. I use it mainly for mitres on mouldings and trims. (Kitchen and Bedroom fitter). It's accurate and a lot quieter than my old rexon. My only complaint is the max mitre angle is only 47 degrees, where as my rexon saw went to 60. But other than that an excellent saw and hopefully it will last as long so will see me thru to retirement."

Accurate, no strings chop saw
20-Aug-2013
By
, Newcaatle
"Fancied the cheaper titan slide saw but was only available next day and needed a replacement that day to cut 5 inch deck boards. Bought the makita reluctantly as i really wanted a saw that would cut 6 inch fence boards. It was super accurate on the decking job. When i got home i had a play with the depth adjuster bolt and was over the moon it could cut 6 inch boards with the depth adjuster at its tightest. Also gets 95% through 4x4 posts leaving a few strokes of a saw. Qualty of cut is great, sounds up to the job, and im sure this tool is going to earn me money."

purchased this mitre saw
12-May-2013
By
, Birmingham
"Screwfix delivered next day. No adjustment needed as it was factory preset. To doublecheck, used the set square provided in the kit to check the angles and cut few samples of wood and they were all perfect. The performance and reliability is excellent so far. And would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. No regret in buying this product."

"Well what can I say. AWESOME sums this saw up in one word this is my 2nd mitre saw in a year after having sent my evolution to be repaired twice over the past year I'd had enough so I purchased this one which is useable straight out of the box and is dummy proof for those who are not in the trade.."

a fine addition
02-Feb-2013
By
, Berkshire
"Why did I not replace the lump of rubbish that purported to be a mitre saw sooner? Compared to the cheap saw I was using before the capabilities of the Makita are vastly better. It is better built, more adjustable and more stable and not that much more expensive.
Yet again the old adage of you get what you pay for is proved correct."

Pretty good mitre saw
05-Oct-2012
By
, Wales
"For the price this is a winner. Mine needed a slight adjustment to get the mitres perfect and square but making that adjustment isn't rocket science. Just cut a mitre on as large a piece of timber as you can and check it against a square. I've used this machine hard for 3 weeks now and its still in adjustment and working well."

Excellent value for money
08-Sep-2011
By
, Malvern, Worcestersh
"I have never had a Makita tool before but have heard they are good quality and reliable. This model certainly confirms that. Delivered within 24 hours of ordering, it was easy to set up. If using on small timber sections, mouldings etc, a gentle downward movement of the blade is recommended to avoid edge chipping. 45 degree mitres are first class.. Not too noisy. Too early yet to judge reliability."

makita mitre saw
16-Jul-2011
By
, Norwich
"This is a great saw for the money. Cuts are acurate and clean, goes through 3"x3" timber like butter!
Not as quiet as my previous Dewalt, but that was double the price at £269. The only grumble is the dust bag which doesnt seem to collect to much.
I have only had this saw for a month now so can really say how reliable it is, but its Makita so should be good!
Overall this is a great product and I would recommend it.

"Having owned Makita products for years I've always been impressed by the excellent build quality. I've tried others and don't think you can better the price of their products compared with what you get for the money. I can't fault this mitre saw, but can't realistically rate reliability for this saw until I've had it for longer. Wouldn't hesitate to buy one again."
