I own a hardwood flooring business and we have 4 of these saws in use and 3 Dewalt 10" and 1 Hitachi. I had the Milwaukee Magnum 10" but sold it because it was too heavy and hard to use. These Makita 10" saws have a great feel to them and are prefered by our crews. We have never had a repair problem with them except for truing the fence which gets knocked out of square after extended use as is typical with all miter saws I've used. Overall the best 10" saw out there.

Note the DEWALT DW703 10" Miter saw is my second choice and is a good saw, however I did have a defective motor on a 1 week old saw.

You'd think it would be easy to find a miter saw that cut straights, angles, and bevels accurately (without having to adjust them every time), but alas no. I went through a couple of cheaper brands hoping to save a few bucks... live and learn. This saw doesn't have all the bells and whistles of some other brands, but it cuts true.

The tolerances of the Makita LS1040 are so tight that wafer thin pieces of wood can be shaved off and you can see through them. I am not lying. I shaved off pieces of 2x material and could see light through them. Also miter cuts in moldings are crisp and clean. I especially like tools with blade brakes because they are safer and blade changing is faster. Because of its light weight I have no problem transporting this saw from job to job. Sure a heavier slide saw will cut 2x10 and larger stock but honestly how often do I cut that on the job site with a miter saw... never.

A few years ago I worked in the cabinet shop of a custom motor-coach factory. We had about 12 of these 10" Makita Saws as well as a few larger sliding saws of various brands. We used them all day long to cut moldings and secondary wood to assemble cabinets, and never had a lick of trouble. Out on the main line, they even used the same saw with a carbide blade to cut aluminum extrusions for coach bodies.

When they finally started wearing out (after about 5 years of 10 hour work shifts) management replaced them with cheap Delta saws which where not nearly as tough.

I have been in the wood trades for several years and used saws of every major brand. If I was going to buy a small miter saw, the Makita would probably be my first choice.

Being a finish carpenter for over 30 years I can say that this saw is excellent for the budget end of the Makita line...for the price it is very much worth it. The saw cuts accurately and is light in weight for portability.

I have owned this saw for 12 years. It is a work horse. It is lightweight and has plenty of power. The motor has never needed service, not even brush replacement. We use this saw often and for prolonged periods of repetitive cutting at times and it always delivers good results . That being said there are a few things you should know. First and foremost, this saw will not deliver hyper precise cuts required in fine custom cabinetry fabrication. The actual rotating table will have minor deflection to the side bearing more weight and your miters will not be 100 % perfect. This is particularly true in large, heavy hardwoods and exotics. Secondly, the bevel adjustment handle is plastic and if overtightened will strip. Lastly, the bevel scale is hard to see and lacks positive stops for common settings used in crown molding, etc.
Overall, this is a fantastic saw for the price and its longevity. I would recommend it to anyone, contractor or DIYer alike but this is not the saw I would use for complex millwork fabrication or installation

I've have had this saw for many years and it works very well. It is lightweight, rugged and dependable. About the only drawback I see is that it is not the easiest miter saw to align w.r.t. fence perpendicularity to blade. It can be done, but it may take awhile to align perfectly and it doesn't seem to hold alignment as well as it could, so I have to get our the squares to check alignment before attempting any finish work - work which I usually reserve for the table saw or Festool anyway, so this is not much of a problem for me - after all, this saw was intended for jobsite construction, not fine woodworking. I should also mention that my model does not have soft start electronics. The amperage spike when you start it is noticeable as is the considerable torque.)

I have several Makita tools and they have all proven to be both reliable and durable. I wouldn't recommend this for finish work (e.g.as a primary angle station in a framing shop) but for the price, it's a good value and sturdy and great for construction.

I should also mention that the dust collector works quite well for an open miter saw. I use a 1 1/4 hose and a shop vac, and this seems to get 85-90% of the dust, and the station itself stays remarkably clean from cut to cut. only a light dust drifts to the table top.

I should mention that the replacement parts seem to be only available through online dealers that charge enormous shipping fees (though the parts are reasonably priced). I've replaced some switches, brushes, cords, etc. over the years and invariably the shipping exceeded the cost of the part. On the positive side, in my case the parts haven't failed that often.

Simple Miter saw design, reliable, and competitive price. Recommended.
