      Comments about 18V Cordless LXT Lithium-Ion 5-3/8 in. Metal Cutting Saw Kit:

      I work in a machine shop and the equipment maintenance and repair is one of my responsibilitys. i had spent quite some time fighting with a corded circular saw and an abrasive blade to cut metal for any repairs that require fabrication. i have quite a few LXT tools already and decided to try a carbide tooth metal cutting saw and i was amazed with the difference. the tool leaves a much cleaner edge than a abrasive blade requireing little to no finishing after the cut. as well as getting a suprising number of cuts per charge considering what this tool is doing. it has gotten to the point that any metal cutting job i have i go to this tool, my 14" chop saw has not seen any use in months because this tool does a better job with a cleaner cut in the same if not faster time than a 15 amp abrasive blade chop saw it has totally changed the way i do fabrication work

        Comments about 18V Cordless LXT Lithium-Ion 5-3/8 in. Metal Cutting Saw Kit:

        I feel that for the price charged the product should have at least had a rip guide and a hard case. Yor advertisment said a case was included but what I got was a soft satchel, which was not what I expected. The reason I selected your Makita product was because I've had several Makite items prior and found them to be very durable. --- Hans A. Ott

        Questions & Answers

         

        Warranty

        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.

        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.
