Excellent product!

"I am a general contractor with over 28 years of experience in construction. The Makita circular saw model 5007 has always been the only saw I will ever own. I have had the opportunity to try many other brands and models, but the weight, balance, power, and longevity of this saw in five star without a doubt. The newest 5007MG model is a tad lighter, and has added the rubber coating in grab spots to help with grip. The light seemed like a foolish attachment, until I needed it on a dimly lit job. I would always buy the model with the light from now on, it really is useful, and I do use it all the time. I have found that Makita makes extremely well made tools across the board, and this one is no exception. I would definitely recommend it to anyone, beginner to professional."

The perfect circular saw

,
June 13, 2011
By JoeTurp
"As a residential builder, I own and have used dozens of circular saws. The one I used most frequently was the previous 5007 model, so I was anxious to try this updated version. I was not disappointed, and Makita has managed to improve an already great saw.
The magnesium frame decreases the overall weight of the unit, which is always welcome, and the base is actually more rigid and less prone to bending than the previous aluminum one. The addition of an LED light is useful in low light situations. The levers for adjusting depth and bevel are much easier to reach and use, and the addition of positive stops for common bevels as well as an easy to read indicator for cut depth are two of the best features on this new unit. The ergonomics of the handholds have also been improved by rounding the corners and adding rubber grips. The blade guard is also greatly improved. The old one was narrow, and prone to being snagged under a board when cutting at full depth, but this has a wider inside edge, ensuring that it contacts the board and opens as it should at any depth.
Having spent so much time cutting with the previous version I was slightly concerned that it would take me a bit of time to adjust to the differences, but this saw immediately felt like an extension of my hands.
Do not hesitate to buy this saw! It is an easy to use, powerful, comfortable, quality unit that is ideal for the homeowner or the professional!

Good saw for small tasks

from Detroit, MI
"This saw works well for small jobs such as cutting plywood, molding, and planks. It has a nice grip and is not too heavy. Regularly used for cutting pine planks down into 12 by 14 boards for demonstration breaking by local martial arts school. No complaints noted by users."
