Makita engineered the 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw with Brake (model 5007FA) with pro framers in mind, combining power and performance with ease-of-use features, superior balance, and job site durability. The 5007FA is ideal for framing walls, siding, roofs and floors using a range of dimensional lumber and engineered lumber including OSB, LVL, PSL, plywood, and more. The 5007FA has a powerful 15.0 AMP motor with electric brake for maximum productivity. The saw has a high power-to-weight ratio, with all ball bearing construction and heavy gauge aluminum wraparound base for improved durability and straighter cuts. The 5007FA has a large cutting capacity (2-3/8 in. at 90°, 1-3/4 in. at 45°) with a maximum bevel capacity of 0°-45° for the most common angles. The 5007FA includes a Makita 7-1/4 in. 24T General Contractor Framing Blade for faster, cleaner cuts. The carbide tips are specifically set to withstand the harshest conditions such as plowing through nail-embedded wood. The blade is designed with special Makita heat vents strategically set to dissipate heat and increase cutting performance.
