An additional note: I followed the directions to change the blade and ran into a problem. The bot holding the blade assembly together was a real challenge to remove. I tried the provided socket wrench and in addition a crescent wrench, Vice-Grip pliers, a ratcheting socket wrench, all to no avail. Finally I used a rubber mallet to force the provided socket wrench to loosen the bolt. A few wacks with the hammer did it. I share this with any other buyers who might run into the same problem. Still love the saw in any event.
Since receiving he has been working or project after project so it seems we are getting use out of it - but he will just randomly start a conversation about it and how nice it is (usually around feature x,y or z).
Currently him and my son are building a skateboard ramp - so I guess possibilities are endless with this.
Overall, from what I can tell, it’s built nice, blade is lasting, easy to move around and there is not dust all over the place.
I am glad we went with this product - I don’t n ke if any other one would have had such a positive response!

My only issue with the saw is the safety switch. Makita for some weird reason decided to make that switch removable as a way to disable the saw when not in use. It even talks about this in the instruction manual. I cannot imagine a scenario in which that would be useful. As a result, the safety switch very easily pops out and gets lost. There are two extra safety switches included in the box thankfully. I decided to just glue the thing in permanently.
