For the price, Makita's 10-inch portable table saw is a solid choice for the job site. The 15 amp motor packs plenty of power, and with a 3-9/16-cut capacity, this saw will rip four-by material on a single pass. This saw also has an electric brake, so adjustments between cuts are both safer and quicker to make. The table's a good size, too: 27 by 22 inches. We also really like the saw's new cam-lock rip fence, which is much easier to adjust than double-locking designs. The bevel adjust has a pretty good rack-and-pinion design (metal, admittedly, would be better). All in all, this saw strikes a nice balance between weight (only 40 pounds) and vibration (minimal). Simply put, the Makita 2703 is a solid saw, better for the job site (quick, powerful, lightweight) than the home shop. For the shop, we'd recommend a saw with a more accurate fence. --Jon GroebnerSee all Product description
Top Customer Reviews
1) The most important feature of any table saw in this price range is an easy-to-use fence that is consistently parallel to the blade. For several generations now, the 2703's fence has continued to wiggle this way and that, requiring the user to either measure twice, from the front and rear of the blade to the fence, or, to attempt to keep an even reveal between the fence and the ribs that run longitudinally in the table top. Despite these measures, the fence can still end up slightly skewed, bogging down the motor and giving you an uneven rip. I'm not sure why Makita has neglected to update the fence all these years; perhaps the cheap fence keeps the 2703 under a critical retail price point.
2) Cutting miters on the 2703 is an even more awkward affair, given the sloppy fit in the miter slot and the cheaply-made miter accessory.
3) While touted as powerful, the 2703's motor has bogged down, blown fuses, etc. when ripping 1 x pine stock against its substandard fence. With practice, I have been able to reduce these instances by slightly loosening the fence during the cut and letting the stock push it to a more or less parallel position.
4) The 2703 will NOT accept dado blades; it's arbor is too short. Being able to run quick dados on site for cabinets, bookshelves, etc. is a nice option to have on a table saw.
5) For $429, you can buy a saw that is superior in every way except weight (60 lbs., vs. 40 lbs. for the 2703). The Bosch model in this class
a) comes with a rugged steel stand that is nearly impossible to tip over, even when jamming full sheets of plywood through the saw.
b) will accept dado blades.
c) has an outstanding, easy-to-adjust fence that stays parallel to the blade.
d) has the most powerful motor I have ever seen on a portable table saw.
e) has pull-out wings that increase the table surface for ripping just about anything in the field.
f) will cut miters happily with its excellent miter attachment.
g) is a good enough saw to make cabinets on. Many, many cabinets.
Reasons FOR buying the Makita 2703:
1) It is light enough to carry with one hand.
2) The electronic brake does make for a safer saw.
3) You can drop it into a Rousseau table, which does have a good fence.
4) It is one of the cheaper table saws in its price range and, when coupled with a Rousseau stand, it will rip full sheets of plywood with considerable ease.
5) If you can pick up the original 8" version (with the dark green body and simple twist-handle fence) you will find yourself in possession of an extremely light, compact, and powerful table saw. The 8" has the same lousy miter attachment and the original switch may need replacing, but the fence is of a better design (clean and wax the fence-to-table interface if needed) and motor did not bog down when ripping 2" red oak, 4" fir posts, and other things the 10" version would not be happy about.
6) Since most saws in this range are for on-site work, vs. shop applications, cuts don't have to be nearly as accurate. Homeowners and occassional users might be happy with this saw due to its low price and light weight (about 40 lbs.).
It's got plenty of power, but the fence is so awkward, out -of square and inconvenient to use it's dangerous..
Others have posted that it's a great saw when you add a $300 Rousseau fence and table- save your money and buy the Bosch saw instead- it's an engineered package, not a hodgepodge to make up for a poor design from Makita.
The good attributes of this saw include portability, a powerful motor; and it is built to take you typically job-site abuse. For rough carpentry use it is a capable saw, but for more precise work like trim or finish carpentry, I would look for a more accurate saw.
