SO I recently purchased both a Makita CSMR(Compound Sliding Mitre Saw) and a Makita 2704 Table Saw with the hydraulic assist stand with wheels. All information is my opinion and mine only.
This saw is GREAT. It is quiet, smooth, cuts great! I had not used it a lot but the few times I have used it have been a great experience. I am coming from using craftsman (homeowners crap) stuff so this stuff is soo much better. It is versatile, and I have never used a saw quite like this. I would suggest this to any homeowner or contractor alike.
Makita 2704 Table Saw
Now this tool I have used more extensively. I have used it for finish work, rough rips, cutting plywood, cutting 2x4's, 1x material etc. This saw has got some serious balls and its smooth and the best table saw I have ever used. The hydraulic stand is great. It does not assist with the lift up very much but helps coming on the way down since the saw is heavier than a small homeowners type.
I love both of these. I just picked up a Makita Magnesium Hypoid saw and will update this when I have a review on that!
