Replaced the muffler on my Makita concrete saw and now it wont start.
check to make sure you didn't accidentally plug up the exhaust port, or pull a wire lose. I don't think it can be anything else, IF it was running well before you did anything. How long has it been sitting? old gas can gum up carbs and or injectors. IF it was running and replacing the muffler made it not run, all it can be is a plugged exhaust, or a wire erroneously pulled loose.

Makita tablesaw 2704 won't start
It could be a multitude of things. It could possibly be the switch is bad. Do you have power at the outlet. Check for a break in the cord. A wire may have come loose anywhere in the saw itself. Did you check the brushes. That's about all I can think of except for a bad motor. You can smell that. Just take a good whiff.

Makita concrete saw dpc7321 won't start has fuel
I'm a retired engineer and work PT as a tool tech for an HD rental ctr.
Compression on a new cylinder/piston is 160 psi. When it drops into the 130~140 psi range the saw becomes hard to start. Below 130 the saw will not run properly and at 90 they are toast. This is mainly due to improper fuel/oil mix (must be one bottle of 50:1 synthetic oil per gallon of regular gas. I use 6 bottles to 5 gallons for addition protection). Because this type of tool works in extremely harsh conditions (concrete dust) it is also imperative to keep the air filters clean. Wash the foam pre-filter after each use with plain water from a garden hose and discard after operating 6 times. Toss away (change with new) the paper filter if dust is present or when changing the pre-filter. Also check the carb hose to the cylinder inlet for cracks. My cost to get a cylinder/piston from Makita runs app. $130. When looking into the cylinder, streaks on the exhaust side indicate improper fuel/oil mix. Streaks on the intake indicate dirty air intrusion.

My makita jig saw hops while cutting perspex what could be the problem
Check that you've installed the right blades. There are blades that cut on the upward stroke and on the downward stroke. Downward cut blades will kick like crazy. Also make sure the perspex is supported as best as possible to stop it from trying to flex with the stroke of the jigsaw.
