    wanting a drop saw, Makita, dewalt, aeg, hitachi. second hand tidy

    Hi there, i am wanting a second hand drop saw with sliding mechanism. It would be ideal to be one of these leading brands. Makita, dewalt, aeg, hitachi. Second hand tidy not after a thrashed machine. willing to spend $300-$500 obviously im not expecting top of the line saws for that money. I can only only pick up from local manuwatu area. I have seen bunning selling an sliding makita for $600 and a aeg for $550.

    Tim, check the Bunnings models against the full range at a place like Power Tool Centre.

    Most of the budget models are nowhere near the same level of machine as the real deal.

    It starts to matter if you are cutting mouldings and want repeatable cuts etc. For basic use they are ok, but buyer beware.

    Surely your boss needs one for ‘work’ then you can just borrow it for the weekend.

    It's always interesting to play with various models at stores. If you tension them sideways, the cheapies will always flex offline. Solid tight-tolerance engineering will never be cheap.

    Makita or DeWhat, the early elu’s are nice, very accurate, before they became B&D and the DeWhat. Dewalt is owned by B&D.
