This Makita sliding compound mitre saw features a brushless DC motor with a high power to weight ratio so that you can cut like a pro. It's ideal for prolonged use, whether you need it manufacturing or production. The automatic torque drive technology (ADT) feature adjusts speed and torque depending on load condition to ensure swift adjustments between high-speed and high-torque applications. The rail forward design lets you place the saw against a wall to maximize your workspace, and the three-stage gear design ensures increased capacity when cutting vertical baseboards or nested crown mouldings. What's more, the 1 3/16-in guide rail makes cutting that much more stable and precise.
