Break or Break-In
Pulled it out of the box and smoothed up six 2x4s and six 6x6 posts for staining on an outdoor project. Virtually ran continuously for about an hour and one half. Never missed a lick and ran on edges without jumping or bobbing off. Fine tool. Only reason I couldn't give it a five star is I haven't tested its longevity which requires minimum of five years.

Long Lasting Tool
Professional cabinet maker here. I bought this tool about 13 years ago. I have replaced the sanding plate a couple of times. The thing keeps chugging along. Also, I have no trouble keeping this large tool balanced, even on 1 1/2" countertop edges. I am thinking about buying a new and donating my old one to the rest of the guys who don't buy their own tools.

Quality, Dependability, and Great Features
Decided to use it on a couple projects before writing review. Extra long cord is Extra handy. Good power to weight ratio, very balanced, does not skip or bounce around when using . Easy empty sawdust bag works great, no zippers jamming in sawdust like other bags. Belt tracking adjustment feature works great. It's one of those tools that you think to yourself, I wish I would have bought one years ago!

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.

Each NEW Makita Lithiumā€Ion Power Tool, Battery and Charger is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of THREE YEARS from the date of original purchase

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.
