Makita Sliding Miter Saw Review

The Makita LS0714 Quad 10 amp 7-1/2-inch sliding compound miter saw is powerful and accurate, and its compact design gives it less weight, which makes it more portable than most comparable saws. The 10 amp direct-drive motor delivers an impressive 6,000 revs per minute.
Unlike belt-driven units, the Makita LS0714 with its direct drive will never slip, and it has an electronic speed control that can cut in when the unit is under load to compensate and help to maintain a constant cutting speed. The unit also features 4 steel rails that glide through 4 linear ball bearing units to ensure smoothness and precision accuracy.

The Makita LS0714 features a powerful 10 amp motor that produces 6,000 rpm. It also features a soft-start technology to help maintain longer unit life and also greater operational control. Constant speed is achieved through the electronic speed control that cuts in when the saw is under load to maintain an even operational speed to help iron out any inconsistencies that might otherwise arise.
