New saws from Makita

Makita USA Inc. has introduced the 7 1/4-inch Magnesium Hypoid Saw (model 5377MG), 7 1/4-inch Magne- sium Circular Saw with LED Light (model 5007MG), and 7 1/4-inch Magnesium Circular Saw with LED Light and Electric Brake (model 5007MGA).

On these new saws, Makita has reduced the weight, improved the ergonomics, and included a powerful 15-amp industrial motor. Ergonomic improvements include clearly visible depth and bevel markings and hand grips. Large rubberized levers provide quick, one-handed adjustments for more efficient work.

The 5377MG utilizes a hypoid gear- ing system for maximum power out- put. Hypoid gears are sealed in an oil bath so they never need maintenance. They allow for more surface contact so more power is transferred over a wider surface, providing increased power and durability.
