I’ve never seen this Makita. I just have read reviews. Nobody here has carried Makita much since they put out a lot of low quality tools back in the 90’s

I know Chris Marshall, and he doesn’t say stuff like that if it’s not what he heard. I think what you have is some flowery review done by a Makita copy writer, who is paid to make it sing and dance. but likely has never laid hands on the tool itself.

It doesn’t really save space — the saw measures about 26-1⁄2″ from the table’s front legs to the back of the posts when extended — but Makita says shorter posts help ensure against deflection

I’m happy for you if you feel a miter saw is high tech. I and countless others just view them as rough cut off tools.
