    Makita recall

    Shame, the 365 isn't a patch on the 7900. I won't be bothering sending mine off and I will deal with any issue if and when it happens.

    Makita recall

    The 7900 is a belting saw, fast, grunty and loves a 24" bar. I packaged mine up and took it to my local dealer a couple of weeks ago. I popped down the other day to see if it was back, they hadn't been out to pick it up! I said "sod it" and brought it back home with me.
  3. Welcome to the South West Big J. You have certainly bought the rain down with you. Machines still up north? Will keep my ears to the ground for any work, but by the sounds of it, nothing too soon.

    Makita recall

    Just phone the freephone number in the link Bill, there may be an option to send the saw in to makita direct.

    Makita recall

    Bought mine in 2016 and not had an issue, mind you, I'm not fresh out of "click clack school"😉 so not sure if the brake has ever been activated 😜

    Makita recall

    Anyone know anything about a recall on makita 6100 and 7900 saws? Dealer close to me mentioned he had to send some back, some he had sold and a couple of new ones off the shelf. He couldn't remember exactly what it was for, but thought it was brake related.
