Rated 2 out of 5 by from I was in a bind when my Milwaukee miter saw... I was in a bind when my Milwaukee miter saw decided to break down after 25 years of constant use. I bought this saw in a hurry to keep me going alone. It seems all right but One thing I do not like is no soft start on this particular one. If they say it has the soft start, I am not impressed. When you First start the saw ,it’s at maximum rpm right there and then. Saw wants to literally jump off the worktable. Oh well, I’ll have this in my collection but it won’t be my first go to Saw to use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too early to tell for sure if this saw is... Too early to tell for sure if this saw is up to the former Makita level of quality. So far it cuts well and works mostly well. When I unlock the bevel (via lever in back), the arm has some front-to-back play that I don't remember noticing in past versions of this model (which I've used on and off for 20+ years). When I unboxed the saw, it had a nick on the angle adjustment lever/knob, and had grease smudges and blobs in various places. Nothing affecting function, but made me wonder about quality control at the factory. Time will tell.

Great addition to a shop that wants to use the table saw primarily for rip/dado cuts. Home depot had it ready for curbside pickup 1 day earlier then expected.

I like the safety features of the saw as well as the hold down arm that aids in making accurate cuts. The saw is light, which is good and bad. It’s easy to carry, but the saw’s light footprint makes it easy to slide around. I plan to secure it to a heavy wood base to address the sliding issue
