3 of 3(100%)would recommend this product to a friend.
I had one of the first Makita miter saws that I bought 15 years ago, and I loved it. But it was limited to 2x6's.& no bevels. When I was ready to upgrade to a sliding miter, most of the offerings were 12", which was too big for my workshop and I would have to buy all new blades. When I saw this 10" Makita sliding saw, I had to try it. It is a really slick product, deadly accurate, and easy to adjust. The laser guide is really helpful. Mating 45 degree cuts match up exactly at 90 degrees every time. Matched it up on my DeWalt miter saw stand perfectly. No hesitation in recommending this product.
