Do not let the modest 10.5 amp power rating or this saws lightweight of 7.7 pounds disuade you- this saw means business.

I like the lightweight and the low noise of just 84 decibels as they make this saw a pleasure to use for long periods. The only thing I will not use this saw for is concrete- my craftsman has to be good for something

I've owned this saw for about a year... in that time it's built a staircase, a monster of a desk, installed laminate flooring, two subwoofer boxes, and a table among other things. The light weight really makes the 5740 helpful on those long extended reach cuts. My dad actually owns the same saw, before the Makita he had a cheap-o skilsaw and I had an ANCIENT (1960's?) Craftsman. The difference in using this saw and either of those is akin to using a scalpel for surgery - or a machete. I shudder thinking about using those old saws in comparison.

Notice that in addition to the light weight, this saw is only generating 10.5 amps, this is a readily noticeable trade off to a heavier, noisier saw. I use this saw with a 40t freud avanti blade on MDF, plywood, etc for precision stuff. It cuts 2X lumber no problem, but it's not really a framing saw.

If you use a circular saw only occasionally, or are looking for something for trim work, pick one of these up, a good 40t blade, and a straightedge. It's a great saw at a really good price.

The light weight makes handling this saw in awkward positions much easier and safer. 10.5 amps is plenty . This saw is a workhorse . Good pro saw

Verified Purchase
This saw was recommended by This Old House. Their first choice was the Milwaukee, but they recommended this Makita for those who want a lighter saw. This saw weighs 7 lbs. vs. 10 lbs. + for the Milwaukee. Also it is a shade narrower. If you are a framing carpenter you might want the extra power of the Milwaukee. But you will be sorry when you have to use it over your head. For woodworkers, handy men, trim carpenters, etc., the Makita is the one to pick. And now, the price: HALF the price of the Milwaukee!
