The Makita HS7100 is a compact circular saw with great design and easy to use functions, developed as the successor model of the 5705R. It has a bevel angle up to 50 degrees and a maximum cutting capacity of 67mm with fine parallel adjustment of the base plate to the saw blade. To give a better cutting view there is a blower function which keeps the cut line free of sawdust. A dust port is also provided which can be connected to a vacuum for a cleaner working environment. The 1400W motor has a flat ended housing which is handy for standing the machine on for easier blade changes. For comfort, there is a soft grip handle with non-slip elastomer which also cuts down the vibration.
