Rated 5 out of 5Â by Rrm1 Excellent tool
I had previously been using a dewalt but this saw does the same job but is lighter to hold

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Wilco No Frills - No Fuss
Had to lift 30sq.m of 100 year old T+G flooring without trashing it.
Me, a thin wrecking bar and Mr.Makita with a 300mm flexible blade did it in 2 hours without a hitch - scared the Missus though! Went through the job like a hot knife through butter.
A solid no frills tool (as usual) from Makita. Looking forward to leaving it to my kids when I shuffle of my perch in 30 years time.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by schweggs Another brilliant makita tool
I started out with a power devil recip saw. It was good for nothing but setting the bare minimum standard. I found it hard to believe that it could be so rubbish and actually work. In the end I lost my rag with it and bought the makita. Wow! I could not believe that I had put up with "the other saw" for so long. The makita has the easy fitting blade clip, a soft start and it seems to glide along the steel rather than bite into it on every other stroke. I find I get far more life out of the blades now and am less tired and frustrated after the job.
