Answer: 
This saw can crosscut a maximum of 12". Miter saws are not made to rip wood. That is what a table saw or circular saw is for. Attempting to rip a piece of wood on a miter saw would be quite dangerous as the piece would be unstable sitting under the blade and you would have to bring your hand to close to the blade to hold the wood.

Yes, I think this saw should be able to rip 12" pieces. I have used it to cut 2x12 lumber several times, & it cut them in a single pass with no issues.

Answer: 
It is not meant for cutting masonry. I guess it would with the appropriate blade but the saw would not last to long and it would be very unsafe to cool the blade with water.

Answer: 
Hey jrquestion.
You would really need a wet paver saw for such a project as wet saws reduce blade temperatures. Using this would overheat blades, ruining them almost immediately.

Answer: 
I do not own one of these saws, but I would have to believe that theblade can be "swung/shifted/rotated" to the left and to the right up to 45 degrees in both directions.
I am not familiar with a miter saw that cuts on only one half of the blade/saw table

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 39 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great as promised Cuts like butter, went directly to the 60 tooth diablo blade . Cut pergo beautifully, even able to make some "rip"cuts nicely. Smooth slider and easy angle adjustment. Not light however but that makes it stable. August 30, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rear fence design not useable When I say "rear fence" I'm not speaking of the "front" fence. This saw (DW717) was designed to allow the user several more inches when cross cutting by employing the rear, (not front) fence. However, Dewalt screwed up because I ordered 2 of these saws and neither one of them was made to accept the pins that are used to employ the "rear fence". Additionally, the instructions for using the rear fence are totally inaccurate and incorrect. The saw was good in all other respects. Maybe it's just me, but why should I spend money on a flawed design especially when Dewalt makes a big deal of this design when advertising the saw. As a result, I returned both of these saws. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Choices Choices Let me start off by saying I am a die hard reviewer and researching when I make a purchase of anything I use for work or a hobby. This saw was certainly no exception. I started off by narrowing my search down to two main saws. This Dewalt DW717 and the Makita LS1016l. I actually had the Makita on its way from Amazon with the Bosch 3800 stand. I canceled that and bought the DW717 with the Dewalt DWX724 miter stand. Now, I was all set on the Makita because I really like the makita tools I had. And I have to admit that if they made a nice miter stand like the Dewalt compact that i ended up with, I would have stuck with it! I am sure the Makita with that great Bosch stand would have been rad but something told me to "stay with the proven saw". I looked at reviews again after the Makita was already on its way and decided to cancel and get this saw instead. I LOVE the compact stand. Its durable, strong, really sturdy and most importantly it is big enough but small enough to bring with me on the job and perform easily as good as the full size that weighs much more and takes up way too much room. Back to the saw though, it is great! I was a little scared at first because it looked like it had been used or at least bought, repacked, returned and resold! Wouldn't be the first time HD did that and would certainly not be the last. That being said, i do like HD for the convenience and because I absolutely refuse to deal with that other blue box store that starts with an 'L". Anyway, it looked used. I was all ready to take it back but decided to at least try it out and see if it was level and cutting accurate. I immediately assumed it was way off which is why it had been returned. To my ABSOLUTE AMAZEMENT it was NOT! As a matter of fact, it was dead on! I checked it with 3 different Starrett Machinist Squares(which if anyone out there knows are the best quality squares and rules you can buy and especially the older ones like I have). I checked the 90, 45, 22.5, bevel(both ways), and every other angle and straight cut you can think of! Seriously, it was DEAD ON every time. Or at least near perfect! Certainly for any carpentry I can think of and I am very particular about my cuts! So accuracy out of the box was a winner to say the least. Besides the quality of the cuts I also noticed other things i liked. The fence that i had heard so many complaints about also seemed to be dead on and parallel with the bottom fence, base and other side. I mean everything was perfect. Easy to loosen and move and honestly just perfect. I was seriously shocked. This day in age everything seems to have serious QC issues. And any saw I would expect(and honestly so should everyone) to do at least some setting up for accuracy. But not in my case! Every bad thing i read about this saw(and there is NOT much bad to find out there) was not the case with my experience. After checking all of this I was expecting the saw not to work, but it did. Sounds nice and cuts strong. I am sure this is one area the Makita would shine over the Dewalt and I am sure the Makita would have been a fine choice also but I read too many reviews mentioning the same problem with the shaky head and blade wobble. One bad review is normal, but when you see a few bad reviews all siting the same problem, well then there at least has to be a chance of it being a real issue and not just coincidence. Anyway, Its a great saw so far that I would say go ahead and just get if you are on the fence. You can't go wrong here. The only problem you re gonna find is with a QC issue. If the saw is performing as it should then there is nothing to dislike in my opinion. Its a tad heavy but who cares? I would rather sacrifice weight saving measures for a solid strong saw any day! I really wish I had gotten to see the LS1016l up close to compare but I am not sweating it at this point. The DW717 matched up with the 724X stand is a serious winner to me! That stand is more than capable of handling anything you will throw at it on the job 99% of the time. The same holds true for this saw! This 10 inch miter is capable of everything the 12 inch saw can do except it is lighter, smaller, cheaper and the blades are a lot easier and cheaper to get! WIN WIN! I am not saying you will never need the 12 inch but its not gonna be something you need often enough to buy it. Unless of course the weight and cost are a non issue for you. If you are on the fence about this saw then take my word for it and buy it. And get the compact stand too! You'll love it! Trust me. I am willing to admit that i am a seriously neurotic researcher and I did the work for you. I am sure the Makita would be great if you got a good one but the Dewalt is a sure bet. The Festool at more than twice the price is your best option out there but who has that money? I wish I had it to tell the truth because it wouldn't even be a decision. Its by far the best tool out there. One day. For now the Dewalt has reached my standards at this price point. August 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good product This saw was exactly what I expected in a De Walt product. Very good quality. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by so far so good i really like this chopsaw. It seems solid and easy to use. smooth, strong, and not too heavy. If i have one complaint its that the guard on dewalts saws seem to be getting wider and wider. But hasn t caused me any problems so.. owell. July 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by works good, dust collectin not as good as other reviews have stated makes accurate clean cuts. we had purchased based on this review in woodworkers' journal: http://www.woodworkersjournal.com/10-sliding-compound-miter-saws-tested-reviewed/ since we have just installed an $8000 dust collection system in our shop. while I agree with the link's review on quality of cut, etc., we still have significant clean up after use, even with the dust collection system. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best purchase ever Easy to use, cuts are very precise . Even cutting PVC board with the factory blade I could not believe how smooth the cuts were, straight and 45's. definitely the saw to have , glad I waited for this one. June 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by We can always depend on Dewalt The saw is well worth the difference between it and a standard miter saw. Great time saver. We have used the Dewalt brand for years and have always found them to be reliable and long lasting. June 1, 2016
