      The Makita 6-1/2 in. Plunge Cut Circular Saw and 55 in. Guide Rail work together to produce accurate cuts with minimal tear-out. The saw combines a powerful 12-Amp motor and a large cutting capacity with magnesium components for less weight (only 9.7 lbs.). Electronic speed control maintains constant speed under load for smooth handling and a splinter-free, mirror finish. The saw delivers accurate cutting as the position of the blade enters the material on the same cutting line, whether cutting straight or bevel.

      I researched track saws for over a year. If you have unlimited funds, then go with Festool. If you don't want to spend $200 to $300 more than is necessary, then the Makita is for you. With the DeWalt you can use both sides of the track. I really liked this, but not for an extra $100. The Triton was a good value, but it will not slide freely backwards on the track. That was a deal breaker for me. I have used my Makita many hours now. It has performed flawlessly. I have used it to break down various thicknesses of plywood and have trimmed large doors. The saw did its job suberbly. I purchased the DeWalt clamps. They are cheaper and work like the Irwin quick clamps. The one and only negative that I have with the Makita is the length of the track. I wish that it was 59 inches like the DeWalt. It was not a deal breaker. You cannot go wrong if you purchase the Makita. Do not let the lack of a riving knife keep you from purchasing this saw. I have yet to encounter a situation where a it was needed. Do not wait a year to buy this saw like I did. Buy it now!
