Makita 7-1/4" Magnesium Hypoid Saw features highly durable magnesium components and a powerful 15 AMP Makita-built industrial motor with a hypoid gearing system for maximum power output. Seamlessly balances weight, power, durability, and ease of use for optimum cutting performance. Motor delivers 4,500 RPM, combined with well-balanced magnesium components. Users will benefit from the precision-machined hypoid gears, which deliver more constant power than worm drive gears. Hypoid gears have greater surface contact so more power is transferred over a wider surface. Hypoid gears are in an oil bath for consistent oil coverage. Large cutting capacity (2-3/8" at 90°) with a maximum bevel capacity of 51.5° and positive stops at 22.5°, 45° and 51.5°. Magnesium components allowed Makita to engineer a saw with less weight (13.2 lbs.). 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. Clearly visible depth and bevel markings and ergonomic hand grips. Large rubberized levers provide quick, one-handed adjustments. Includes a Makita 7-1/4" Premium Ultra-Coated Framing Blade with Advance Tooth Design. The "M" shaped tooth design features a two-pointed tip and two 10 degree bevel face to maximize cutting performance for a faster, cleaner and longer lasting cut. The carbide tips are specifically set to withstand the harshest conditions like nail-embedded wood. Ultra-coated to reduce heat and pitch build-up. Blade wrench is attached to saw for fast blade changing. Built for framing walls, floors and roofs with dimensional lumber and dense engineered lumber, including LVL, PSL and I-Joists, headers, and microlams; as well as ripping panels such as plywood, OSB, particle board, and dense structural panels. Also plunge and bevel cutting, masonry and metal cutting. INCLUDES: (1) 7-1/4" 24T Ultra-Coated C.T. Saw Blade (A-94530-A), (1) Wrench (783204-6).
