It took me awhile before I made a decision because of the cost. After I used it I have to say I made a right decision no regret it cut perfect every time and big time saver. Makita is best

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good clean straight cuts. Easy to use. The angle indicator... Good clean straight cuts. Easy to use. The angle indicator is close but setting with an angle calibration tool is necessary for very accurate angles. The blade dulled after 35 cuts in 4” channel iron. I’ll use cutting wax with the resharpened blade to try to extend its life.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dry Cut Saw Had an abrasive chop saw for years, absolutely no comparison to this Mikita dry cut saw. The dry cut saw cuts with no smell, no heat, no burring and way faster than an abrasive saw. I just cut 2800 lbs of steel to build a fence, everything from 1” tubing to 3” tubing with no issues. Probably 500 cuts and is still as quick as the first cut. Highly recommend.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good. Only a couple dozen cuts to date, but it is working well. I have only cut mild ... So far so good. Only a couple dozen cuts to date, but it is working well. I have only cut mild steel. Cuts include a piece of 12 lb. railroad track (2" tall track from a narrow gauge train), 1" diameter solid bar, a 1-1/2" black iron pipe, and several cuts on 1/4" thick flat bar and angle. It didn't like the track too well (slow and lots of sparks), but it cut it cleanly and the cut was cool enough to touch immediately after the cut was completed. Pros: Tight fitting locking mechanism on the rear fence does not allow the material to move while cutting. It took some effort to release it, but I was able to do it just fine without a cheater bar as other have indicated. I'm not a huge fan of the handle grip (and almost didn't buy the saw because of it) but it has not been an issue in use. It is comfortable enough and intuitive. I love the heavy hold-down (vice plate) screw handle; it moves quickly and holds materials securely. The heavy cast aluminum base feels very secure. Everything on the base of this saw feels stout and capable of holding material securely. The wrench stores on the base which is great so it does not get lost. One other thing I was concerned with was the 12" blade as compared with the competition. I'm not sure I am really missing anything by not having the extra clearance. 12" cuts through about anything that I will need it for, and I feel like if there was something bigger in there, a saw in this class would be too small for it. So, I put this in the positive as a 12" blade will be less to replace than a 14" blade. Downsides: The chip collector probably only catches 50% of the chips. The rest either bounce out or never make it into the collector in the first place. One issue that this has caused is that metal chips get on the table of the saw. These chips have interfered with the smooth travel of the hold-down. When I was attempting to secure a piece of metal to be cut, the hold-down (vice plate) got jammed on the chips. I had to back it off and clear the chips from the table. After that it moved smoothly again. The saw blade bounces a little when making heavy cuts. Not a lot mind you, but enough to be noticeable. I may try a higher tooth count blade at some point to see if it runs more smoothly. I purchased the saw online through Home Depot. The box was damaged in transit, but they let me open it before I left the store. Nothing appeared broken so I took it home. The only issue with the saw was that the cord was slightly crimped. My guess is that because the chain that locks the saw in the closed position had come loose and allowed the saw to bouncing around in a delivery truck, it bounced on the cord. Looking for Home Depot to supply a new cord. The quick release lever is super easy to flip over to disengage. However, every time I have used it, it takes a couple of tries to get it to actually disengage. I'm giving four stars, but it is probably more like 4.5. I think the lock down chain should have been secured better so that it didn't bounce off during shipping, and causing damage to the chord. The quick release needs a little fine tuning, and the chip collection could be revisited. Perhaps a slightly wider catch and a curved rear of the catch, sort of like at an indoor firing range, to help make sure all the chips stay in the box??

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smaller foot print than others considered and a little lighter....... Smaller foot print than others considered and a little lighter.... but still heavy and beefy. Cuts very well and the vise is solid. Really pleased with this purchase. I bought this for my business for cutting iron ballusters and the occasional shower door frame.
