I am amazed! It was definitely worth the money!

Soft start set 2-pin to 20A. Works great. It should be connected to the break in the wire between the switch and the motor. There is an empty space in the handle, just right for a soft starter. If you connect a soft start to the saw, then it will not work: the light will not work. Soft start it starts smoothly when turned on, not the engine.

  • Good powerful not very expensive saw. Cast sole.
  • There is no riving knife. No soft start (can be installed). Heavy. Blade only for rough cut (replaced with 64T for clean cut). There is no protection against unintentional start-up, therefore it is suitable only for professionals.

The best purchase in my life, I will definitely buy it again.

It took a long time to choose how everyone here actually does it. I bought this model for cutting plywood (1 cm in two layers). Pila did an excellent job. Sawed 16 sheets in 3 hours. He let me rest after each cut. Of the minuses, like everyone else writes, there is no soft start . it really picks up, but this is not critical. We launch in advance and drove to cut.

  • Sawing well
  • No soft start

Valuable purchase, nothing but pluses!

Has pros: The assembly is excellent. Liked the trigger. When starting, you feel the power, kicking. Different cons: Short cable. On the old Makita 4 meters. There is not enough soft start.

I didn't expect the quality to be so high.

An excellent device, I took it from a friend for work, I liked it and decided to take the same one for myself. Comfortable and functional. I advise you to purchase!

  • Power of 1800 watts, cuts quickly and smoothly
  • No

Excellent product, the best quality.

In general, I am satisfied with the purchase of shares 8889 re, I think this is the norm. As for the warranty card, they said that they would send it . we'll see

  • Appearance, ease of use, cutting quality
  • There is no start button latch, for continuous operation without pressing. Missing warranty card

The purchase brought only positive emotions.

I took it for installation in a table and I'm thinking about a circular for mobile work, but after such a diameter (210 mm) it will be sad to cut with a small disk. Its pros: Powerful - cuts everything like a knife through butter. The presence of illumination. The quality is top notch. Nice disc included. Has some cons: It is, of course, heavy and this must be taken into account. Do not run with it, holding it in your hand on weight.

Great quality, did not expect at all for the price.

Unedged board OAK 50 mm with ease, smoothly and quickly Undoubtedly an almost flawless saw - the perfect balance of weight, power, smoothness There are small flaws. Some pros: Powerful Balanced Soft as a foreign car :) sawdust removal is flawless When released, the disk protection does not hit hard and ring, but softly hits with a special rubber band The ground is flat Native disk super for rough tasks Its cons: Price Too heavy Disk protection always interferes, does not open - infuriates Site…

The best thing for the money, Im glad I chose this option.

It should be noted that the "Makita" tool has a good cooling system on the tools, retribution requires systematic maintenance, but these are the working moments of the revision, everyone's business. Pros below: An excellent hand saw. Before that, I had experience using the Interskol saw 2 kW, which has been serving properly for 9 years to this day, the anchor was changed, I didn’t look after the builders, they dissolved the boards and gave it coke. As for this device, I liked the even saw cut…

Not a bad product, quite normal quality.

In general, the saw is not bad, before that it was Hitachi for 10 years of intensive use, I only changed the brushes, once I had to change the anchor Got pros: Powerful, minimal backlash, illumination of the cutting area, easy replacement of brushes, Its cons: Due to the lack of a separating plate behind the saw, it can clamp the workpiece, it is not very convenient to unscrew and clamp the ruler

Quality is top notch, happy with everything.

I decided to buy a saw that was more expensive and more powerful, since the previous tools did not please me at all with their price-quality ratio. Here I am happy with everything. Power can be envied, money was not thrown away. I haven’t noticed any shortcomings yet, even my wife, who is indifferent to tools, liked my choice

Has some pros: I took 190 after Interskol, also a decent saw, but this one moved from a Soviet car to a decent foreign car, soft high-speed start, easy, everything is regulated clearly, easily and reliably. Different cons: Of the shortcomings, if this power cord was four meters, it would be.

A valuable purchase, some advantages!

I recommend this product to everyone! You will not regret! And pay less attention to reviews forever than dissatisfied! You can't please everyone! Sometimes they take a Makita 2470 puncher and hammer window openings with them, then they are perplexed how so . Got pros: Quality tool! There are no problems with spare parts, everything can be taken from the catalog on Makita Pro! Build quality, ease of use! Satisfied with everything! Cons below: There is none of them! Many write that there is no…

Quality is top notch, happy with everything.

It is very pleasant to the touch, there is no backlash, I can’t say about reliability, time will tell Has some pros: I see no reason to repeat them, they were already called before me and more than once Some cons: Not revealed yet. If only the price, since this is no longer the same Makita that it once was. Alas, China is China ((

The best thing for the money, I'm glad I chose this option.

I put a disc on aluminum, sawed a used board, with nails, sawed it in two, carces of nails (Soviet 200ki) fell apart calmly, without hesitation. I tried to screw the nozzle for the vacuum cleaner - heaps a full pouch or pocket - unscrewed it. You can say silent, there is no “hysterical screech of an eternally dissatisfied mother-in-law”))))))) does not cut the ear)))), the cut line is blown, always visible, translucent. The model is very successful, it does not throw up at startup. I RECOMMEND!

  • Powerful, well done, nothing more, weight more than 6 kg. it’s not felt, on the contrary, it is an advantage, when working it’s like a tank, it’s accurate - I checked all the corners from the box - FUCK !
  • There are no shortcomings, someone complains about the weight - let the arms pump up))))

Great product, best quality.

Although it’s the first circular saw, it’s very easy for me as a beginner to cope with it, the weight affects a little. Cutting soft wood without straining a little slows down on the knots, but it goes like a tank, except for pine saw nothing. The disc, in my opinion, is an excellent cut, it turns out clean. there haven’t been any adequate blows yet, the absence of a riving knife is not noticeable, when sawing it doesn’t clamp anything and doesn’t interfere with work. I don’t know how anyone…

  • Power, convenience and simplicity and accuracy of adjustments, price, backlight, housing.
  • weight, case.

I haven’t participated in serious work yet, I just managed to test it on the balcony . Blowing off sawdust works so that the vacuum cleaner gets little, chips are everywhere)) it cuts wood and chipboard without smelling an opponent). I tried to make a double wash down on a chipboard, it didn’t work out, when adjusting the disk to the depth of the wash down, the disk (or platform) shifts, this may lead the mounting bracket itself to the side, I think it can be fixed .) I don’t use parallel…

  • Works great, the sound is loud of course, but smooth. No vibration during operation. It is perfectly balanced in weight, slightly outweighs the disc, but this is if you hold it with one hand. In fact, it is designed to be held when sawing with two hands . When the disc protection is thrown back, metal does not clang against metal - there is a rubber bumper. Blowing sawdust, lighting).
  • The sole is a little crooked . (maybe my copy is like that). Blowing sawdust. The ruler of the cutting depth is glued crookedly . lying)

Best I have ever used, great product for anyone!

I tried out a Resanta 2 kW at 5500 rpm before deciding to buy this one, and it was a great saw. Features-wise, the Makita 5008 is a step down from the competition at 1.8 kW and 5200 rpm. But in practice, I find that the same Makita substance makes far easier work of cutting. High grade engine and cutting element, in my opinion, have an impact.
