In Detail

Makita 3 Year Warranty (Registration Required)

This plunge saw from Makita is supplied with 2 x 1.4m rails, connector and storage case for the saw.

Why buy a plunge saw? Simple, it will allow you to cut a very precise straight line with ease and this saw is so well built with many features for the most precise cut when ripping and crosscutting.

The rail guides the saw perfectly, the rail has an anti splinter strip for a clean cut and the anti slip stips mean you do not even have to clamp the rail on most surfaces but additional rail clamps are available if required. The saw can also plunge for cut-outs if required. Driven by a powerful 1,300W motor (overload protected) with constant electronics to maintain speed under load for a very smooth cut. A variable speed dial allows you to select correct speed for material being cut. With a wide cut range and clear setting it can cut up to 55mm depth and 39mm at 45°, a 2mm scoring cut can quickly be made before the full depth cut, height and angles (-1° - 48°) are simply set with thumb screws, with positive stops for -1°, 22.5° and 45°.

Supplied with 2 rails and connector that has a replaceable splinter guard, anti-slip strips on the underside and top running strips for a smooth glide, 48T TCT blade and Systainer storage case.

Very good track saw

Like others there is a trade off between makes for the price paid. I've had my saw and guides for quite a few years with moderate use as I'm a table saw fan. Recently it has become used more and more with excellent results. Recently I had several sheets of 8x4 18mm MDF delivered which I could not carry on my own. With a few pallets I set up a temporary work area on my drive, dust is a big issue, coupling up to my Record shop vac I was very impressed with how much dust was collected (little clearing up). Using my home made parallel guides and Makita track, the saw is very accurate and produces excellent results. The combined effect of using this saw more is that my workshop is making room for a MFT type work surface, intention is to use the saw more not less! My Dewalt table saw produces a lot of air born dust, even when connected to my dust extractor.

I'm becoming much more aware of 'dust' and this will be a key consideration for future purchases and this saw is close but probably not as good as the Festool equivalent. I need a new router and will probably go for one that extracts most the dust at source. For the professional and serious amateur, H&S and cleaning up after a long day must be a prime consideration, this saw has to be recommended and for its quality of cut and dust extraction. It's not a Festool and a lot of my tools aren't. if I had the money I would probably have more of the green brand around. As a none professional but wanting professional results I'm pleased with my purchase - its a bit of a compromise. That's life!

Buy the Festool

I used one of these Makita jobs on a site and was disappointed. Nowhere near the ease of use of my Festool, nor the clean cut. Depth stop is fiddly. Overall it didn't seem any better than my mate's Lidl saw at £50, except for the longer tracks.

Joy to use

I really wanted a panel saw capable of cutting 8x4 sheets, but I could not justify the cost for the 4 or 5 projects I do a year. I was torn between the makita and the festoon. Went for the makita. When I took it out the box, I was a bit disappointed I did not pay the extra for the festoon, it does not quite ooze the same quality as the festoon. I have used it to build a router table and I must say it is perfect for my needs. It cuts beautifully and is easy to use.

A superb saw. Easy to use, quiet, accurate and solidly made.

I made cuts with the standard blade in 12mm ply (using the guide rail) and there was barely any tear out and the cut itself was very clean.

I'm very, very glad I bought this saw.
