Reconditioned saw is "good as new."
Was a little hesitant to get a reconditioned saw as some in the past looked worn out when I got them. I was pleasantly surprised at this one as it looked nearly new and came with the manual and a blade. This saw was recommended to me by EurekaZone.com forum to use on their track saw bench because of the larger blade and great motor. Searched the web and found CPO. Will definitely buy from CPO again because of great pricing and fast delivery of quality goods.

This is the best saw I have ever used. I actually got this saw stolen from me the first time I bought it and because it is such a good saw I had to buy it a second time. Great cutting action and simple to use.

Great so would definitely buy again
It is just like using my 7 1/4 inch except that it will cut through 3 inches deep. Possibly a change would be made to the degree scale to show more degrees

Warranty Information

Makita Standard Warranty

The Makita Standard Warranty applies to both new and factory-reconditioned Makita tools. Every Makita tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. If you are not satisfied with any Makita tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide a replacement or refund. Each Makita tool is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of ONE YEAR from the date of original purchase. Should any trouble develop during this one-year period, return the COMPLETE tool, freight prepaid, to one of Makita's Factory or Authorized Service Centers.

Each NEW Makita Lithium‐Ion Power Tool, Battery and Charger is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of THREE YEARS from the date of original purchase

If inspection shows the trouble is caused by defective workmanship or material, Makita will repair (or at its option, replace without charge).

This Warranty does not apply where:
  • Repairs have been made or attempted by others
  • Repairs are required because of normal wear and tear
  • The tool has been abused, misused or improperly maintained
  • Alterations have been made to the tool
In no event shall Makita be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages from the sale or use of the product. This disclaimer applies to both during and after the term of this warranty. Makita disclaims liability for any implied warranties, including implied warranties of "merchantability" and "fitness" for a specific purpose, after the one-year term of this warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
