Not for Lefties

Pros:Excellent saw, great power

Cons:Not for lefties

The Bottom Line:

If you are right handed, this saw is wonderful.  If you are a lefty, go elsewhere.


My husband has been in construction for ages, he's a carpenter and we have recently started a construction company. He needed a few new tools for the hotel he's currently building so this saw was one of a few purchases we made from Amazon.

The saw works wonderfully, and cuts exactly what it is supposed to cut, I WOULD give this saw 5 stars, if either my husband or myself were right handed (not that I plan on using it much). The problem for those of us who are lefties is that the blower blows the sawdust directly into your face, no getting around it. We've basically handed this saw off to our right handed saw guy to use. I am sure that somewhere out there Makita makes a left handed version, but in the meantime we're out shopping for a different saw.

If you are right handed, this is an excellent saw for the money and has held up well for both a school remodel and building a 4 story hotel so far. There is plenty of power and the saw appears to be very durable. Just beware if you are left handed that you should try to either find a left handed model, or get a different saw.

Please be aware that this model does not have a brake, if you require a brake there are other (slightly more expensive) models of this same saw that do come with a brake.

Another random note - If you order from amazon, you will have to have a person at home to sign for the delivery. It wasn't a problem for us, but you should know since amazon doesn't have that listed anywhere.
