Sample Customer Reviews
Positive Customer Reviews
This saw has plenty of power (over a 1,000 rpm higher than dewalt or bosch) and is the only job site saw that has the cutting capacity and power to cut 4x material in one pass.
This saw has done every thing I have asked it to do. The gear adjustment for the blade angle is what sold me on this saw. My carpenter is using it, he left his Bosch at home.
Negative Customer Reviews
I have a makita 2704 table saw, its a good saw, but it has two design flaws, theirs no lateral ajustment for the blade, and the throat plate sucks, and you cant buy zero clearance throat plates, and the 2705 is the same.
