Makita-built motor engineered for versatile power. The 5008MGA features a Makita-built 15 A industrial motor that delivers 5200 rpm combined with well-balanced magnesium components for a lighter weight saw that delivers true power the professional user demands. The saw has a large cutting capacity (3 in at 90 deg) with a maximum bevel capacity of 50 deg and positive stops at 22.5 deg and 45 deg for quick back-and-forth changes. Magnesium components allowed Makita to engineer a saw with less weight (11.4 lb) that is well-balanced and jobsite tough. Additional design details include greater clearance between the rear handle and the blade case to provide a better grip for larger hands or for users with gloves, as well as a wider space between the blade and housing for a clearer view of the blade and measurement scale. The saw features twin L.E.D. lights for better illumination, as well as ducting designed to blow dust away from the line of cut. Makita also engineered ergonomics and ease-of-use into the saw, including clearly visible depth and bevel markings and ergonomic hand grips to improve overall control while minimizing operator fatigue. The large rubberized levers provide quick, one-handed adjustments for more efficient work.
