We weren’t quite sure what to think about this new Makita circular saw, but after seeing some rave reviews, we were quickly encouraged to give it a chance and see what’s truly up. The motor is as powerful as can be; 15-amps worth of power make it more than enough torque to slice through any material with the best circular saws in the world.
For an increased efficiency, Makita added a new system of one-handed adjustments with levers and buttons, and it does indeed work like a charm. We were able to keep cutting smoothly and adjust the levers to change angles.
Any change happened in an instant and there were no awkward marks or anything. This is partially due to a new oil bath technology, which coats the selected surface in order to decrease maintenance. Not many circular saws have this.
It’s also important to note that through the ten hours of total testing, it never heated up to anything above mild temperature, proving itself as an ultimate, jack-of-all-trades circular saw.
If you are an industrial craftsman, this lightweight saw with a minimalistic body for increased sight is just the missing piece you were after.
