Great features, light weight, powerful.
I do a lot of exterior rot repair. The light weight & power of this tool make replacing fascia, rake & soffitt boards a breeze.

Very strong saw
I was worried this saw might not be powerfull enough for the framing - I was wrong. I love the built in light and ease of adjustments of the saw and use it far more often than my saw with a cord.

Great saw for around the shop
Great saw. This model is an upgrade from the 611 in that it has a light at the blade, a blower to clear the cutting line and a break that stops the blade quickly. The light is great for my old eyes.
The blade is on the left side as you stand over the tool. The opposite of my corded saw. That took a little getting used to, but I am growing to like being able to see the blade better with the saw in my right hand.

Good strong saw and good value
This Makita cordless saw has more power than the typical cordless circular saw. The motor has heft and torque not found on the previous cordless saw that I used to use. If it were not for the outrageous price of the battery (admittedly a strong performing Li-ion) I would give this 5 stars.

Great for a quick job
Saves time for making quick cuts. Light weight makes it easy. The interchangeable battery with my other Makita tools makes it a winner.

Great Saw
I purchased this saw to install composit decking
(trex deck) the cuts are nice and clean and very accurate, for a job this size you will need extra batteries, I have four. battery life could be better, but over all a great saw. Also good for board and batt applications.

Excellent Circular Saw
I work in construction mostly remodeling Baths and Kitchens... This little saw has handled everything i've thrown at it, which includes continuously stressing the tool to the max almost every day... I'm specifically impressed with the power, durability and ergonomics. So far, its the best cordless saw i've used. I would like to see them replace all the plastic adjustment knobs with metal though, specifically the blade depth knob if nothing else.

I have the most recent version of this saw. It did not come with the dust extraction attachment. I bought one and found that it clips in at the top but it looks like theres supposed to be a screw that holds the bottom. Is it me or am I wrong?
