Absolute belter of a saw for the price. Get a decent blade on it and it cuts like a dream. Feels good in the hand. Nice and light and compact. Well built and sturdy. Has a real feel of quality. Would definitely recommend to anyone, wether wit be professional or DIYer.

Brilliant bit of kit for the price, easy to use, doesnt absolutely kill my batteries like the last model, still not amazing on battery consumption, but improved.

Game changer for quick and easy cutting of cls and sheet materials. Still getting used to blade on the left. Plenty of power and batteries last reasonably well.

I finally bought one of these after wanting one for years, great tool, really happy with it, it’s well balanced and cuts like a dream! Just make sure you have a spare battery if you are planning lots of cuts!

Good power lightweight and everything you would expect for the price but needs a 4ah or higher battery to maximise the tool

Just recently purchased this tool and is a real addition to the tool kit. As a spark it’s perfect for cutting bridgers for lights/socket back boxes. Also real handy for cutting back boards for dist board mounting. Haven’t tried it on many heavier cuts but seems strong, sturdy and well worth the money.

Not the most powerful saw but saying that I have only caused it to stop when cutting material which is too thick. There are more powerful saws but this is all the saw I will ever need. Definitely buy again if the one I have dies. Tough as nails.

Great little saw, useful for stud walls and fairly light jobs - like cutting OSB flooring. Struggles quite a bit with anything over 4x2 and cutting wet timber is difficult. For the money it’s great value, nice and light & easy to use

Another great tool from Makita, light and powerful and will cut all day with a 5amp battery. Only issue I find is the depth adjustment on mine stick down into the work piece so I can only cut 30mm thick material, possible due to it being dropped but other than that a very good tool

7th October 2020

Excellent saw. Easily cuts through 4cm soft wood. Haven't tried hard wood yet but expect the same. Feels nice in the hand. The LED light to illuminate the saw line is a nice addition. The dust extraction is a bit small (19mm inner /21mm outer diameter) and I needed duct tape to hook it up to my shop vac, but worked efficiently. Not too much vibration either. Impressed with how well the saw blade tracked - it remained perpendicular to the top of the material, even when cutting thicker pieces. I went for this (older) model due to some negative comments on usability of the latest Makita brushless jig saw and I think it was the right choice. A joy to use and highly recommended.

Having owned this cordless circular saw that I got within a kit from Makita 4 years ago I have to say what a great item it is for cutting various materials when out and about.

There are several alternative toothed blades available to suit material you are working on and the saw has quite the power output providing you let the blade do its thing rather than forcing.

Great little saw for general woodwork, add a quality blade and It will work it's way through most jobs. Be careful not to overload or let it overheat as the brushes will melt as I found out. No bother as brushes are easy to replace and back in action. Will be going for the brushless version once this one dies as it's limited to 3.0amp batteries whereas brushless goes to 6.0amp batteries.

In my opinion the worst of all makita power tools. I bought mine to eliminate the power cord getting in the way of work. I didn’t expect it to be as powerful as the corded version obviously but I find it to be so low on power that it’s very hard to cut with any accuracy which limits its use. Only really good for ripping down OSB board. Much better cordless circular saws on the market

In my opinion the worst of all makita power tools. I bought mine to eliminate the power cord getting in the way of work. I didn’t expect it to be as powerful as the corded version obviously but I find it to be so low on power that it’s very hard to cut with any accuracy which limits its use. Only really good for ripping down OSB board. Much better cordless circular saws on the market

Another great tool from Makita, easy to use, robust and the battery lasts much longer than I expected. It'll cut a 50mm thick piece of timber quite easily for a battery powered tool, but I tend to use it for cutting sheet material most of the time. Excellent piece of kit.

And to top it all off it’s not that expensive compared to some other brands!
Makita is the way forward!

This is my go-to saw. I use it usually every day and I've really put it through its paces.
I've build decks, framed roofs, built stud work, you name it this saw has done it and more.
The key is to keep a sharp blade and a fresh battery in it and it will be the best thing you own. Well worth every penny.

I've cut worktops, floorboards, ply, OSB3 and even 7" x 3" and it managed. So impressed i bought the twin 18v for tougher jobs in case i ever find one

This skill saw is brilliant, I got it with my Makita set, it's nice a light. It does cut out if the battery is low but then that's not the saws fault.

To change the depth is altered by one knob that can be tightened by hand.

Also comes with a built in light.
