Following the trend of installing low-voltage, long-lasting LED lighting in everything from glasses to gloves, Makita recently released their new model 5008FA 8-1/4″ Circular Saw with built-in LED lighting.
The corded saw has a 15-AMP motor operating at 5,200 RPM and an electric brake as well as a flat motor housing to keep the saw stable when you place it on its side to swap blades. But the real addition is the two LEDs that light the line of cut “for increased accuracy.”
The 5008FA is available now, and street pricing starts around $170.
