Easy To Use
Buy the LS1019 and be happier in the long term... still a good saw though if it hasn’t been used before
Came with a huge chunk in the saw well. I think someone changed the blade and didn’t put it back in properly... was supposed to be unused... sent it back..
good saw otherwise, but I ended up spending a bit more and getting the LS1019, which is in a league of its own... just the blade alone is worth the extra cost

I do molding work and other trim projects. My old makita slide saw was at least 15 years old and worked great. My last crown job would have been a little easier with a tilt both ways so i finally boought this new one. i also bought the makita saw stand both are great packed very well saw was perfect right out of the box

Feels bigger than 10 inches
Looks great out of the box, at $350, it's a great deal. Cuts are sharp and accurate. It's light weight, and compact. The 10inch blade feels a like a 12 inch blade when cutting 6X6 posts without any lag or distress (mainly because of the sharp blade) and it sounds amazing. The electronic start lets you ease into the material, with no jerking. The components don't feel cheap or flimsy. The handle is ergonomic. It came misaligned but was resolved. Dust collection bag was useful but not great, felt flimsy. For this reason the slide rail was affected and does not slide as smoothly with saw dust on them, but itt can be easily whipped off. However, the only issue was the bolt to change the blade felt like it was welded on. Extremely difficult to take off and ended up stripping the bolt a little.

An excellent saw!
The price was very good for such a nice saw with these features. Excellent sliding mechanism. Very accurate. Light weight. The base is a bit small. I'd take a couple of more pounds for a more stable base. The material supports are very narrow and for some reason start BEHIND the fence? They are essentially useless. This saw needs a stand with supports or to be on a bench with built in supports or roller stands. Everything works smoothly, overall I really like it. I had an LS1013 forever. That is a 10" dual bevel slider like this. That was a great saw and so is this one. The brake is very good and the blade stops quickly. I think the soft start takes a bit too long to get up to speed. If I don't wait a second to let the RPM's build up and I cut a bigger or more dense piece of material, the motor seems to bog down a bit. Other than that, it has plenty of power although I feel my old LS1013 (same amps) has more power. Bottom line: well worth the money (Under $400) for a dual bevel slider from a top name like Makita.

Great price and quality, nice soft start and plenty of power
Like I said above the dust collection isn't great but the only saw I know of that has great collection is the Festool Kapex. I like the look, power and the cuts so far are dead on.
