Makita’s 7-1/4-Inch Hypoid Saw, Model 5477NB, combines a powerful 15 AMP motor and Makita’s efficient hypoid gears with ease-of-use features for more power, better performance and superior cuts.
Hypoid Gears Deliver More Constant Power
The 5477NB has a powerful 15 AMP motor with ball bearing construction for increased productivity. Makita’s efficient hypoid gears have greater surface contact and deliver more constant power. The oil bath technology and sealed gear housing are engineered for less maintenance, with high-quality heat-treated hypoid gears for long lasting performance. The 5477NB has a large cutting capacity (2-3/8 inches at 90°, 1-3/4 inches at 45°, 1-9/16 inches at 50°) with a maximum bevel capacity of 0°-51.5° and positive stops at 45° and 51.5°, ideal for truss and rafter cut-outs. The large levers are designed for fast bevel and depth adjustments. In addition, the lower guard design improves performance when making bevel and narrow cuts.
Ease-of-use features were also engineered into the saw. An over-sized handle and ergonomically designed rubberized grip provide improved control and comfort. The push button spindle lock and on-board blade wrench are designed for easy blade changes. The reinforced 10-foot cord is made for job site use, with externally accessible brushes for easy replacement and extended tool life. The base plate is chemically treated to resist rust and warping for superior cuts. The 5477NB includes a Makita 7-1/4-Inch General Contractor Framing Blade with Advanced Tooth Design. 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 performance. The 5477NB also includes a blade wrench attached to the saw for fast and convenient blade changing.
Engineered for a Range of Applications
The 5477NB is engineered for framing walls, siding, roofs and floors using a range of dimensional lumber and engineered lumber, including OSB, LVL, PSL, plywood, and more. It is ideal for framers, builders, carpenters, and general contractors seeking a best-in-class 7-1/4-Inch hypoid saw. The 5477NB is just another example of Makita’s commitment to innovative technology and best-in-class engineering.
