5.0 out of 5 stars Great saw!, 11 Nov 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you already have any Makita kit with the 18V 3Ah Li-Ion battery, then this saw (bare unit) is an essential buy - I just wish I'd bought it earlier! I've had it for a few months now and it's proved very useful indoors and out. I've used it for cutting (seasoned) wood for my wood-burning stove - anything up to 10" thick is achievable. The wood I was cutting had been sitting in the rain, but the Makita had no problems with it. Of course it will not cut nearly as quickly as a chainsaw, but if like me you have experienced the hassle (and danger) of using a petrol chansaw then using the Makita is a joy in comparison and much more pleasant to use.

I've also used it indoors for cutting through 2" wooden studding, where it proved a real boon - very quick and much easier than trying to use a handsaw, especially in tight spaces.

The battery seems to last pretty well - I haven't had to recharge yet after using it for several jobs over a number of days.

All-in-all an essential buy.
