Terry the toolman "Mr. Makita" says:

After you have everything else…….. I really dig makita tools and have almost exclusivly makita and milwaukee gear. I am a genuine tool junkie and if I dont have one you dont need it. I was amazed when I saw this thing and really bought it almost as a novelty,I mean this is real toolman bling bling. You dont have everything until you have a cordless powerhack..chuckle chuckle….but this buddie came and no sooner arived than I had uses for it. pipe..rebar..locks..angle iron… you name it, a lot of jobs I ordinarily grab a sawzall and a metal blade for can be done with a lot more finess with this saw and it seems to have plenty of power for long enough.The l.e.d light is a nice touch as well. I gotta give Makita 5 blings for coming up with this one….So after you have everything else….

Jordan D. Gibson says:

Just awesome Doesn’t quite feel like it has the same amount of power as the Milwaukee corded band-saws, but the portability is unmatched. I’m getting about 70 to 80 cuts per charge cutting unistrut so the battery life is pretty good. The whole tool feels extremely rugged and I expect it will last a long time.
