Makita Celebrates 100 Years of Innovation

Overall Rating for Makita SP6000J1 6-1/2" Plunge Cut Circular Saw + 55" Track Kit
(based on 5 reviews)
Equals or surpasses all rivals
By Roboray from Las Vegas on July 12, 2016
I have used the Festool track saw and it was great, however the Makita does the same job for nearly half the price, don't trust me read other reviews. This saw is superb, I wish the blade was on the other side like a hypoid/wormdrive however I am getting used to the standard layout. Cuts extremely cleanly in plywood, superb.
Pros:
High quality, like most Makita products. Easy to use and a value.
Cons:
The case is kind of weak, That is not why I purchased the tool though.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Great saw, but don't like the rail
By Carpenter Mike from Seattle on May 20, 2016
Great saw, feels and operates very similarly to the festool. Only problem is the rail is not quite perfectly straight, though good enough for my needs since its only off by 1/32- over 4ft. Don't buy the long makita rails, they're notoriously not straight, I use a 106 & festool rail with this saw and its fits fine. If you want perfection just buy the saw alone and get festool rails for it
Pros:
Saw
Cons:
Rail

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Easy Peasy - Makita SP6000J1
By Janet from New Jersey on April 21, 2015
exactly as advertised, easy to set up and use, buy the clamps-they're worth it!

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Omg wish I'd bought this years ago!
By V Hartford from Fremont ne. on March 20, 2015
This is really a unbelievable little saw. Easy to use and track stays put. I've cut off doors, ripped 3/4 inch solid oak extension jambs. Cut ply. Still getting used to it but very happy. A couple parts could have been slightly heavier made but seem to be adequate .
Pros:
Smooth and true. Plenty of umph. Track stays put without clamps. Very safe, blade retracts quickly. Brakes fast as well.
Cons:
Detent button for your shallow cut is made of soft rubber and pulls off easily. Wish cord was longer. Still has a little dust out side with vacuum attached but not terrible, little clumsy with 2 1/2 inch vacuum attached. Better with small hose.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Fast and accurate cutting of sheet goods
By SD from North Carolina on November 27, 2013
Could not justify the expense of the Fe$tool track saw and after quite a bit of research settled on the Makita. Tested out of the box on furniture grade 3/4" Cherry ply and with the scoring function (1 pass at 2-3mm, 1 pass all the way through) it cut with zero tearout on either side. On MDF, sanded pine, etc. you can skip the scoring pass and still get a virtually tearout free cut.
Pros:
Price
Quality of cut
Lightweight

I would recommend this item to a friend.
