The socket wrench is stored on the base for easy access, and a shaft lock system shaves a lot of time off wheel changes.

Metal Cutting Cold Saw
This is a great saw, it will perform as advertised. I've been cutting various sizes of angle iron in my garage, and the cuts are straight and true. The box arrived on time and in good shape. The saw was pacakaged adequately. I tightented the saw blade by about a 1/4 to 1/3 turn, and trued up the angle indicator (with a square and phillips screwdriver), it was off slightly. All has been flawless since. I do use a stick lubricant on the blade, just because.

Great Saw!
Why did I wait this long before purchasing this saw, I'll never know. So much faster, quicker, and more precise than the abrasive types. Easy to adjust too. Got it at a great price from CPO and was shipped quickly and arrived in great shape.

Great chop saw.
In reference to - Poorly packaged by Makita - the saw arrived twice with a damaged electrical cord. CPO Customer Service made sure that the saw was inspected and securely packed before overnight shipping for the third delivery. CPO made it right and I would not hesitate to order from them again.

Super saw!
Very capable saw but limited by blade and design to specific types of material. Not too good on thin wall (16 ga) tubing, which was what I planned to use it for. Risk of damage to blade and some safety risk. Works FANTASTIC on heavier wall material. It "mills" it's way through material rather than sawing in the usual sense making incredibly smooth cuts. Great quality for the buck,and very glad I bought it, just didn't address my immediate need and there was no way to tell beforehand. May be able to buy another type blade. Still researching. READ THE MANUAL! There are very important non-intuitive things you MUST know for both efficiency and safety.
