Makita 5008MGA 8-1/4" Magnesium Circular Saw, with Electric Brak:at our store, we stock over 2000 models, so if you see the manufacturer, but not the model, don't be shy - give us a call and we will be happy to check! I wish someone would come out with a cordless version, especially Milwaukee since I have their battery system. This thing is precise no slop like the other reviewer experienced and there are no movement on all the hinges. I love the brake and the ease of angle/height adjustments. This saw is every little bit Makita quality. Not a deal breaker but why do manufacturers put the blade on the right side where I can't see the cut.max 89% off,indianapolis mall,chicago mallMakita 5008MGA 8-1/4" Magnesium Circular Saw, with Electric Brak

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.

"p""b"Engineered for a Range of Applications"br"The 5008MGA 8-1/4-Inch Circular Saw is built for framing walls, floors and roofs using a range of dimensional lumber and dense engineered lumber, including LVL, Parallam and I-Joists, headers and microlams; as well as ripping panels such as plywood, OSB, particle board, and dense structural panels like Advantech. Other applications include plunge cutting, pocket cutting, bevel cutting, masonry and metal cutting. The 5008MGA is just another example of Makita's commitment to innovative technology and best-in-class engineering.

About Makita's Magnesium Series"br"Magnesium components are stronger and lighter than conventional materials, resulting in saws that weigh less with improved ergonomic features. There's plenty of power thanks to Makita engineering, and a precision balanced design that delivers clean, accurate cuts.

All Abuzz About Bugs!

We are an online community of naturalists who enjoy learning about and sharing our observations of insects, spiders, and other related creatures.

We enjoy the opportunity to instill in others the fascination and appreciation that we share for the intricate lives of these oft-maligned creatures.

Our Mission

Using the best resources we have access to, we are creating a knowledgebase to help each other and the online community.

Our Method

We collect photographs of bugs from the United States and Canada for identification and research.

We summarize our findings in guide pages for each order, family, genus, and species.

Making New Discoveries

More than just a clearinghouse for information, this site helps expand on the natural histories of our subjects. By capturing the place and time that submitted images were taken, we are creating a virtual collection that helps define where and when things might be found.

We capture never-before-seen behaviors and we have photos of species that you won't find anywhere else on the web.
