Easy To Use
use it everyday in construction
this is one of the worst products makita has ever made blade pops off all the time... the wheels on the bandsaw get full of shaving and blade starts sliding.... when ever u try to cut something thats any bigger than 1" conduit the blade twist and its not a straight cut.... u really have to go so slow for a straight cut and apply no pressure otherwise blade falls off or it cuts in a huge angle. The whole bandsaw is made out of plastic so its really flimsy and cheap. Ive used the dewalt bandsaw and its easily 30 times better. i feel like i got my money stolen with this cheap product ..... sorry makita u lost a customer.

Awesome tool
I'm an electrician and I use this tool every day to cut conduit, strut, all thread etc... this tool does the job and is light and compact. I love the tool. Only gripe is the battery hangs off the end making it a little longer. This has not affected me negatively yet. Other brands the battery sits inside, other than that its an awesome compact band saw.
