I bought this saw about a month ago and I love that it’s so light in comparison to the Milwaukee saws. I’m usually a Milwaukee man, but I wanted to attempt a different brand so I took a chance on Makita. I own lots of Makita tools just not there saws. I’m a carpenter and I need stuff to last because it gets used every day for 8+ hours. After I used the saw I love the balance and weight I also think the LED work light is a nice thing to have in low light conditions. All around I could recommend to all people that need a saw that’s built to last.
This is the best round saw I have ever used. I used to own the last variant, 5007FK. I am a homeowner, not a pro, and my old saw ‘disappeared’ when some freelancers were at the house. I went for this upgraded model as a substitute and have not been disappointed. I have used it on many projects (deck, bookcases, some light framing) and it’s powerful and cuts true. It’s a big improvement over the old variant in some number of ways. The ergonomics are better, the modification levers are now rubber coated (used to be smaller hard plastic knobs), and the cast magnesium base is more hard than the old stamped aluminum base. Also, the blade guard is redesigned and not binds up on 2x material. Great saw. Greatly suggested. Comparison shop against the Milwaukee and the Porter-Cable (forget the DeWalts) and you will see this Makita comes in 1st. My only complaint is that the included blade is junk – mine lost two carbide teeth on my 1st project. Ditch the blade for a good Irwin or DeWalt blade.
I have used the current models of Dewalt, Hitachi and Milwaukee round saws greatly, and this saw is hands down better than any of those. I use the saw every day,I have had this opportunity because my tools have been stolen a couple times(ouch)The makita LXT affect and drill are so good that I thought I could attempt out this tool. A list of what I noticed about this saw the 1st time I used it. I was astonished how quickly I noticed this stuff in use,it seemed only all right when I checked it out at the store. 1. It has a silky smooth start up2. It has excellent ergonomic grips3. It’s quieter and sounds better4. It has an light to see your line, (more useful than I thought it could be)5. The modification levers function better and are easier to grab6. Onboard storage for blade elimination hex key7. The angle modifications and depth stop are easier to see. 8. It comes with the rip guide (more useful that you could think)9. The cord is installed to the body of the tool like they mean for it to stay and not fray10. And does it ever cut smoothly,it doesn’t but have a electric brake, the 5007mga does although i believe. This saw is on a different plane,Thanks Makita engineers, you’re making some amazing tools now. And other guys, come on seriously catch up.
