Customer Questions & Answers

Will it cut a 4"X4" in one pass?

Will it cut a 4"X4" in one pass: both 4"X4" and the finished 3.5" X 3.5"? Thanks
Asked by: MJ
absolutely it will. unlike many other 10" saws, the sliding feature on this one makes cutting through 4x4 in one pass possible and very easy
Answered by: VillageCarpenter
Date published: 2017-04-01

What is the longest cut this saw can make in a single pass? Can it rip a 12in wide floor panel?

Asked by: JD777
no. The saw is not for ripping.
Answered by: Slider

Could this saw be used to cut brick or pavers ?

Asked by: jrquestion
I would not try it. I love my saw. Buy a saw for that purpose.
Answered by: Slider
Date published: 2016-12-14

does this means this saw can cut left and right without flipping the wood

Asked by: 1403
I'm not sure what you mean. You can angle the saw in both directions, if that's what you mean.

Customer Reviews

10 in. (254 mm Blade) Double Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 58.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did it take me so long to get this saw? First I would like to get the bias factor out of the way. The reason I am doing so with this review because dewalt is one of those brands that has a very faithful following and it makes a lot of people bias towards their products. That bias in reviews tends to give people that have interest in the product the wrong idea. I am not one of those people. Personally I wrote Dewalt off a long time ago, as the overrated and over priced bright yellow tools that are targeted towards contractors and construction workers. I wrote them off because every dewalt tool I ever owned had problems. Now that that is out of the way I have to say this saw is freaking awesome. Probably one of the best and most accurate miter saws I have ever used, but before I get to why it is so awesome. Lets start from the beginning shall we. I have not owned a miter saw for years. My last one broke and since I only do wood work out of my shop at home. I did not bother to buy another one. I have about 6 different crosscut sleds that I built for my table saw and they have more cutting capacity than a miter saw and they are all tuned to with .002" which makes them more accurate than a miter saw. So I opted out of purchasing new miter saw. Recently though my wife forced me into a project by going out and buying a bunch of crown moulding and baseboard for the crown molding cornice. She wanted it in the living room. Now most own miter saws to make quick work of crosscuts in lumber and make cutting crown moulding and baseboards much easier. I have jigs for my table saw that allow me to cut crown moulding with spring angles of 45/45 and 52/38. But it takes a lot more time doing this on a table saw and was only meant for doing small crown moulding jobs like a fireplace mantel or a bookshelf. Not a whole living room and dining room. So needless to say I needed a new miter saw so I got online and started researching. I know I wanted a 10" sliding miter saw. So I narrowed it down to a couple of different brands. Makita, bosch, ridgid, milwaukee and yes dewalt. These were the brands in the price range I wanted to be in because I did not want junk and they also had the features I was looking for. I also needed a saw that I could by at one of the local home centers in my area, because I wanted to start the crown moulding the next day. So that meant Makita, and milwaukee were no longer an option because though the stores carry their products. They do not carry their miter saws in stock. Also all the reviews on the makita miter saws talked about a horrible vibration in the blade that made cutting inaccurate. I like home depots brand ridgid. The stuff is quality made products but its off putting that you can never find parts or accessories for their power tools. So ridgid was out. Now I love the bosch brand tools, but all the reviews on the bosch miter saw were 50/50. Half the people loved it and the other half hated it. Mostly because the detent system for setting the cut angle on the saw was not quality made and made the saws inaccurate. I wanted the saw though, because of the new glide arm it uses instead of the slide, but what is the point in having an innacurate saw unless all you need it for is really rough cuts like hanging wall studs. So I was left with with old yellow (dewalt) Now the Dewalt DW717 has great reviews online. I mean great reviews, but I ignored a lot of them because like I said above dewalt tools have a cult following and it makes people bias. Looking at the features with the 11 positive stops for the bevel detent and 7 positive stops for the miter detent was awesome. The tall sliding fence was another plus and the 12 inch cutting capacity was a huge plus. With all that and finding out that I could walk in the store and purchase the saw. I was sold. So I went and picked the saw up. Got it home and the first thing I noticed is that it is very sparsely packed. Like literally a huge box with a couple pieces of cardboard to hold it in place inside the box was not good packing. So I did not like that. I sat the saw up on my workbench and got it all set up. Used a precision square to make sure the blade was adjusted correctly. Made sure the blade was tight. Then I made my first cut in a piece of 1x5 pine. It just burned it up. So the 40 tooth dewalt blade that came with the saw was garbage and I immediately replaced it with a Freud 60 tooth carbide tipped finish blade. Then made another cut and it cut like a dream. So when you purchase this saw make sure you buy a nice blade to go on it. I noticed that the saw is very powerful and I love the brake that brings the blade to a stop fairly quickly. The slide glides smoothly with no play in it. Out of the box the saw cut dead accurate. I tested it at 90 and 45 degree miter angles and bevels. Then checked each cute with my woodpecker precision squares that are accurate to .001 of an inch. I love the way you can adjust the miter angle with the simple push of a button and all the positive stops make it a breeze to use. You can override the positive stops with the flip of a knob and it allows you to adjust to more odd angles. The bevel detent adjustment has positive locks as well at the more common angles and can be overridden to adjust to more odd angles. The bevel detent is a little awkward to adjust but after you get use to it. It's fine. The saw has a lever that locks the blade in place and keeps it from sliding back and forth when not needed. It also has an adjustable depth of cut screw on the side for dado cuts. The dust bag as with most miter saws is useless. I suggest getting a PVC elbow to attach to the dust port on the saw and putting a box behind the saw to blow all the dust into. It still won't get all of it but it's better than the dust bag and the box is there to keep the dust contained so its easy to vacuum up later. One thing I really like about the saw is the way the handle is positioned. It makes it easy to make cuts whether you are using the left side of the saw or the right. Dewalt also makes a laser for this saw, an LED, crown stops, and a couple other accessories. I can do without the laser. Id rather see the blade physically line up with the mark on my workpiece anyway. Makes for more precise cuts anyway. Besides that the Laser is like 200 bucks. Way to expensive. The LED work light would be nice in low light situations and I have a pair of those crown stops on order. I know this is a really long review, but if you were contemplating purchasing this saw. I hope it helped you to make your final decision.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome saw! This is the first saw I've had the pleasure of purchasing. I read reviews on other saw brands and sizes. I went with the 10" from Dewalt solely based on reviews. I'm not much of a handy man but my garage needed some new tools and I'm planning on building a tool shed soon. I would recommend getting the light for unit. You may have to do some research finding it since it's discontinued on Dewalts website. The dual beveled sliding action is smooth and cuts like butter. You will not be disappointed on this purchase.
