Wait a minute, where can I get a mains Makita slide compound mitre saw for £145?
The dewalt 54v also has an adapter which you can use to make it run off mains power so you get the best of both worlds, it doesn't come with the saw so you have to buy it separately
I used the DeWalt cordless with the new 54v battery. Brilliant. A must buy vs mains. Go anywhere. Light. No cables. Well impressed.. The 54v battery fits the lower voltage stuff to. Don't know anything about this makita but it's the way to go if you are in the trade.. Imo.. So I'm giving this some heat
Why would you spend 300 more than a mains powered one though. Its good for tradesman but not ya average diyer.
Perfect if you have a few logs you want to turn into firewood. This should be up to the job, as long as they are quite small logs.
