For those customers who appreciate Makita tools, this is a good general-purpose mitre saw with good accuracy and a very low weight (11kg) for maximum portability. The 1,650W brush motor provides more than enough power for all applications, including cutting aluminium (with the correct blade and adequate clamping). The back fence, as well as having holes drilled for additional support plates, features a pivoting section on the left hand side which can be moved in or out of position to give the best support when cutting either steep or shallow bevels. The material clamp can be placed in any one of four positions for maximum convenience. Supplied with dust bag, TCT saw blade, material clamp and service tools.

great sawI bought one in 1995. It still has the same blade in it and has cut everything from firewood, branches, 9x3 joists(spin the wood over), 4x4 oak, creosoted half railway sleepers and the odd nail. Never let me down. Powerful,reliable and still going strong.

Great SawThis saw is great. It is so accurate and also very easy to use. I spent a lot of time reading reviews before making the purchase and I'm really glad this is the one I went for in the end. There might be other saws with lots of bells and whistles but this does all I want and with such accuracy it's hard to believe. If you're thinking of buying a mitre saw and are undecided then go for this one.

Long lasting QualityI have had one of these saws for about 15 years and it's still pretty much like new. The design is simple and robust with very little to go wrong. The capacity is fairly limited but the accuracy is superb and a perfect machine for accurate cutting when say cabinet making. Mine has quite a kick when starting up so you really need to clamp or screw it to a bench and hold tight or secure the wood you are cutting otherwise it has a tendency to move a bit on starting. I would highly recommend this machine, it really is a quality piece of kit especially if you want accuracy more than capacity.
