Bought this almost identical saw 6 years ago. It has simplified my life simply by the ease of use, accuracy, and durability. I'm a home improvement specialist so my equipment needs to be quality. This is just one of the many tools I own by Dewalt. Highly recommend this saw.

The perfect present for any man in your life! I bought this for my Grandfather at Christmas last year. He loves it! He is always working on some kind of project and this works perfectly for him! He shows me all the new stuff he got done and always reminds me that he used his saw to do it!

One of my husbands friends owns a pawn shop, and recently he came into possession of a brand new set of these tools... he offered them to us first, and seeing as how we are doing MANY remodel/restore projects right now, getting this was a no brained. We used this to cut the trim and crown molding for my mother in laws house, and it made the process so much quicker and easier, and the cuts are great. This is a great saw!!

It can get the job done. We have had ours for years and it's been great. With the stand theres no other way to go. It has crown stops for that perfect cut on crown molding and with the motor up top you can cut the tall base or those wide one by's.I give it an AA+. Dewalt 12" Compound Miter Saw DW715

Wonderful saw, had a smaller/older black and decker saw to start out and with this Dewalt 12"Compount Miter Saw I'm able to do larger projects. The saftey features on this saw are great, the saw gard and how quickly the saw stops are light years ahead of what I had before! Highly recommend it!

I started my own business a few months ago and my business is woodwork, crafts, homemade items, and more. I make decorations and furniture out of old pallets. I was very upset with the saw I was using at the time so I decided to go out and search for a new one. I came across this saw and I'm so happy that I did. It is very easy to use and has different safety features too. It also makes excellent cuts as well!

I got this model because it was on sale at Home Depot, and I am so thankful that it was! This miter saw is the best one I have used (i have had 3). Simple to use, very durable, and not as cumbersome as others. Perfect for the jobs I have used it for to cut molding.

Milwaukee Makita or Dewalt? Size , weight and power ratio? And best bang for your buck. If I wanted something for at home diy projects or a happy medium that can do it all?
