Best saw I've ever owned!
UPS delivered on time, no damaged boxes or content. I bought the Makita with the trolley which makes a
great combination and easy to move as well as store. While I have a few Makita tools, this one tops them all. I've been using the saw to replace the porch rails, and I've had to use the bevel, which is very accurate--in fact it was accurate right out of the box. I'm also impressed by CPO's service; the first shipment arrived damaged, and CPO took action immediately. Thanks for your professionalism. That's why I bought another Makita saw, this time with a 10" blade, just a few days ago, also from CPO.

Excellent tool for many uses!
The trolley was bent at the end of one of the support rails. CPO told me to return both the saw and the trolley, to be picked up by UPS while a new set was being shipped. This is my first experience with
CPO, and I am impressed. The new saw and trolley have arrived, and I look forward to using them in the projects planned. Since customer service is excellent, I will buy more tools from CPO. Thank you, CPO!

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.

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.
