Utter garbage, don’t buy!
I’ve owned many Makita tools over the years and have always been impressed with their quality, but they dropped the ball with this one! With in the first 40 days my purchase the blade went out of timing meaning the blade would not sit at 12 O’Clock.
Took it back to the shop and it was sent off for repair, got it back and was told I was being “too hard” on it by the salesman. Negate the fact that I use this tool daily and my last one lasted for years, should show I know how to use them without breaking them.
