I have owned the same Makita mortiser for close to 20 years. While I no longer use it daily, I did for a long time, I still use it for some applications, and it's length of service is testament to it's durability. I'll outline a few distinctions, attributes and draw-backs:
* The Makita mortiser's chain cuts parallel to the grain of the timber. Multiple positions are required to cut a typical mortise (1 1/2" to 2") due to the machine's relatively narrow bar.
* Chain tensioning requires loosening a nut, making the adjustment, and re-tightening the nut. Since this adjustment needs to be done frequently, especially with new chains, the time it takes can be a bit much. The same is true of most chain cutting tools.
* The mortiser cuts in three positions by torquing the bar to the left. When three plunges are complete, the operator can "sweep" the bar to the left at full depth, thus removing the ridges left between plunges. However, the mortise is never flat on the bottom (due to the radius of the sweep), so mortise depth needs to be adjusted to be sure the tenon doesn't interfere.
* The depth stop is a part of the casting: a rod with depth stop passes through the hole in the casting. This little bit of casting is prone to breakage: the majority of older mortisers I've seen (including my own) have had to have this welded back on (or go without a depth stop). Breakage often occurs when cutting the second half of a through mortise: once the chain can grab on to the hole in the wood, hold on tight or you'll break the casting.
* The machine has a spring loaded clamping mechanism to secure it to the timber. Capacity is limited, and the jaws of the clamp can scar soft wood if unprotected.

I purchased this unit several years ago. Use it sparingly, but it is fantastic. I originally cut mortise pockets by hand. This is soooo much easier, better, faster ect. I use these type of reviews, so felt somewhat obligated to pass on my thoughts on items. Again, very easy to use, just clamp onto the log, set the depth and make the cut. I have used it only with oak and it cuts a very clean mortise. I have had zero problems with this. Heavy, well built.

I've used the ProTool and the MaFell mortisers and I prefer this Makita unit. It's quick to setup and I'm comfortable with the process that Makita uses -- cutting mortises in strips. You can cut a 5" wide mortise without any repositioning and a mortise for a 2" thick tenon cuts in three strips. A 2x5 mortise takes at most a minute to setup and cut. Cleanup is minimal. It was delivered with a broken handle and some brackets bent up. Amazon was of no help but the local Makita service center is trying to get the parts replaced.

I used this to cut most of the mortises when I did my own timberframe, and it's a very functional and useful tool. The process is fast enough that I was even able to recut a mortise quickly while the crane operator waited to lift the beam into place. However, I feel like the chain is much duller now, and I can't figure out how to get it sharpened, and would like to get another one anyway, but the only price I can find is 550.00.
