Welcome. I suggest you add the model number for the saw. Then we can give you a better answer. Makita makes pretty good tools for the most part, but models, motors are different in different countries. Will you be using it for construction work only?

That's a pretty small saw for breaking up 4x8 sheets. It is more of a DIY or construction saw. I would also give the Bosch 4100 a hard look since it has some very important standard features, and is a favorite around here. It's a little more expensive than the Makita, but you can buy the Bosch with either a riser stand for portable use, or without the stand for use in a shop. This is very important: The width of the miter slots cut into the table. You want to get a saw with slots 3/4 inches wide. Some are narrower and you won't be able to find top quality miter gauges that fit. The Bosch also takes a dado set, some of the small saws will not. For cabinet work that dado set is going to be important, so make sure the miter slots are 3/4 wide and 3/8ths deep. There's an old saying, good ain't cheap and cheap ain't good. It applies in spades to power tools.
