A second opinion

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:No muss, no fuss, little clean up

Cons:Do you have a muffler?

The Bottom Line: This quality and durability is worth paying for.


Though my husband is the "tool man", while building our shop and our current work-in-progress (our house and most everything in it) I have had to use ALL the tools in the shop. Needless to say, we have a lot of Makita products - saws, drills, drivers...
This Makita 10" Compound Miter Saw does the job and does a good job of cleaning up after itself (next I'll install a vacuum system, but that's another story). It is built to Makita quality standards - which is why so many pros use them. We were lucky enough to find ours on sale (that's where I come in) and, knowing their reputation for quality, it was the obvious choice. It has held up well through professional and amateur use, and hasn't missed a beat. I just have trouble reaching the release button on the back for the angle cut. I don't suppose there is such a thing as a quiet power tool (but I won't stop looking).
Well made, fairly straight forward to use, clearly marked settings . . . Go for it!
