Bought as a barely used second hand tool. Same as the previous two reviews. The saw does not cut accurately. Had to modify the guide just to be able to adjust it to get an accurate 90 deg cut. Have to mark out all other angles and align the saw to the mark in order to get an accurate cut. Not worthy of the Makita brand.

Overpriced, inaccurate saw from Bunnings
This Makita saw (LS1017L) is a discontinued model, currently only carried by Bunnings. It's not shown on the Makita Australia website. It does not bevel to the right, unlike the model carried by all other tools stores (model LS1018L). But Bunnings charge about the same price anyway — go figure. Out of the box it was inaccurate, and when I adjusted the fence to make the 90° cut accurate, the 45° detent was inaccurate by a couple of degrees. So it would never be accurate (detents not correct, unfixable). Took it back to store, less enamored with Makita after this experience.
Purchased in May 2019 for $498.00.
Questions & Answers
What is wattage for this machine?
My saw isnt working hardly used just stopped is there a fuse to replace
If hardly used, probably still under warranty. Take to local Makita repair agent (contact Makita for directions). There are no fuses. Only other simple thing would be brushes, but not in a new saw.
