    Comments about 6-1/2 in. Plunge Circular Saw:

    I have been using the Festool track saw for about 12 or 13 years. Unfortunately, the motor finally gave out. Since I am semi-retired now, buying the new Festool was cost prohibitive. Plus, I am assuming that I will not put as many hours on the new tool as I have in the past. After researching the newer alternatives such as the Dewalt and Makita, I chose to go with the Makita for two reasons. One, the Makita has gotten better reviews than the Dewalt. Two, the Makita fits my existing Festool tracks which saves on having to buy new ones. In short, I like the Makita saw, with a couple of minor misgivings. The Makita is well designed, provides a clean/sharp edge and actually has a little more power than my old Festool. It fits my old Festool guides perfectly and adjust to height very smoothly. The one weakness is stamina. I tend to rip a clean edge on a lot of 8 foot hardwood boards that I get from the sawmill. If I try to cut too many boards in a short period of time, the saw cuts off, which is a built in protection of the saw to keep the motor from being overworked. While this feature is a good idea, it is forcing me to change my work patterns a bit. After I rip a few edges, I work on something else for a while to give the saw a chance to cool down and then I go back and rip a few more edges after the saw has had a chance to rest. Other than forcing me to learn new work habits, I think the saw is great and in a number of ways is superior to my old Festool.

      Comments about 6-1/2 in. Plunge Circular Saw:

      Building a Murphy bed for our guest bedroom. Requires multiple dead on straight cuts on 3/4" cabinet grade plywood, which is expensive wood. The rail system makes the cuts dead on strait with no chipping. The blade that comes with the saw makes every bit furniture grade cuts. Saw NEVER bogs down

          They are basically the same. The SP6000K is a order model and is being discontinued by the manufacturer. The SP6000J is the newer version of the saw.

      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.
