Another who likes the Makita - I have a pair of the cordless and like both. Both are right handed saws. Most cordless saws are left blade. Which way do you want to make the UEG?

so far...the review is good.
same things that were teaching for over a decade...at great cost.

BLADE-LEFT DESIGN
With the exception of two standard-format sidewinder models (Porter-Cable and Ridgid), the saws I tested were blade-left models — a curious trait when you consider that corded sidewinders typically have blades on the right. This aspect of the saws makes them handle a lot differently than their corded counterparts and takes some getting used to. While gaining a clearer view of the blade, you also gain a face full of sawdust, at least in right-handed use. And the weight of the saw sits on the “drop” side of the material being cut, so it requires more careful balancing to make short or shave cuts without tilting the blade.
few years back 12-13? one of my guys ( A good Pro) use a left blade cordless saw. Ryobi.
he had a manicure with some meat removed before he even made his first cut.

worth the extra $ over the bss610 for the blade brake. Since it is a slow spinning saw, the brake pretty much stops it in a fraction of a second (virtually instantly).

There is actually a euro version of the cordless 6-1/2" makita saw that is right bladed. It looks a little more well built as well. I don't recall the model # off the top of my head.

The prices i see it going for are extraordinarily high, though.
