      Comments about 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw:

      After 5 years, my 5740NB has experienced constant use in the field, with only one breakdown -- a defective trigger at year three. Easily replaced by the owner at minimal cost. This quiet beauty is utterly smooth, well-mannered, and produces surgically-controlled cuts. A large, light alloy base plate, replaceable brushes, and a spindle lock all make this a professional tool. Yes, it is not as powerful as its larger cousins, but it will do the job, if you don't push the tool beyond its strength. Perfect for work on older houses with 15 amp circuits, because the saw's 10.5 amps won't trip the breaker or blow the fuse. The scribed line of sight mark on the footplate could be better, but highlighting it with a fine-tipped felt pen takes care of that issue. You won't go wrong with the 5740NB.

            Comments about Factory Reconditioned Makita 5740NB-R 7-1/4-in Circular Saw:

            I specifically bought this saw to use with a commercially available straight edge guide product. The advantages I expected were light weight and adequate power. For my primary use, that of cutting plywood with the guide, the light weight helps because I am always moving both the saw and the guide into cutting position. For my purpose, the power seems just right. One surprise, as this is my first Makita saw...I find it to be smooth running (vibration-free). Of course, as a reconditioned unit, the price couldn't be beat. I could not detect any prior use or evidence of re-working...it seems brand spanking new and perfect.

            Questions & Answers

             

            Warranty

            Warranty Information

            Makita Standard Warranty

            The Makita Standard Warranty applies to both new and factory-reconditioned Makita tools. Every Makita tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. If you are not satisfied with any Makita tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide a replacement or refund. Each Makita tool is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of ONE YEAR from the date of original purchase. Should any trouble develop during this one-year period, return the COMPLETE tool, freight prepaid, to one of Makita's Factory or Authorized Service Centers.

            If inspection shows the trouble is caused by defective workmanship or material, Makita will repair (or at its option, replace without charge).

            This Warranty does not apply where:
            • Repairs have been made or attempted by others
            • Repairs are required because of normal wear and tear
            • The tool has been abused, misused or improperly maintained
            • Alterations have been made to the tool
            In no event shall Makita be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages from the sale or use of the product. This disclaimer applies to both during and after the term of this warranty. Makita disclaims liability for any implied warranties, including implied warranties of "merchantability" and "fitness" for a specific purpose, after the one-year term of this warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
