Makita 36V Sliding Miter Saw
« on: November 30, 2018, 03:54 PM »
Does anyone have any experience with the 36V makita listed below.  I am looking to replace an aging miter saw and my understanding is this saw has great dust collection and power. I am curious how long the batteries have lasted before needing to be replaced and overall cutting accuracy.

Can't comment about the saw itself, but many of my colleagues use Makita's cordless system.  Generally, Makita's batteries are now extremely reliable.  They should last you several years.

How is the accuracy over the full crosscut length?  Thanks!

Mine is accurate across the full cut width.
