Great saw at a good price
Comment:The is my second LS1016L. I bought this one for my vacation property workshop. I have used a number of different brand name saws, but I prefer the Makita. It is a good value purchase for an excellent saw.

Comment:Nice and quiet, accurate and versatile. A bit more expensive then others on the market but I'm glad I decided to buy this one. Wish the vertical clearance was a bit higher to miter 1x6 vertically but it's a small complaint. The included blade is a bonus and better than the typical junk blade sent with tools.

Everything I expected
Comment:After looking at reviews of 12 inch miter saws, I selected the Makita. It was a great choice. I am looking forward to some projects that I have been putting off laminate wood floors and baseboards because my tablesaw would slow up the job.

Good product and easy to operate
Comment:I purchased this saw for my husband who argued that it was too expensive. After he received the saw, set it up, and began to use it, he has decided it was worth the money. Thanks for making an affordable, quality product.
