Answer: 
This saw does not come with a laser guide however you can purchase many laser guide models that will attach to it. Remember that laser guides must be calibrated any time the saw is moved and that some may need constant calibration to remain accurate. This saw has a very easy line of site on both sides of the blade and I have never felt a need to install a laser guide.

Answer: 
No, but some of the 716 series do accept the Dewalt XPS light system. That system mounts a light on the front of the blade housing which casts a highly visible shadow of exactly where the blade will contact the work surface. Much more accurate than a laser and needs no adjustments. They are available on Amazon which also sells the Oshlund after market laser which replaces one of the washers on the blade Read More
No, but some of the 716 series do accept the Dewalt XPS light system. That system mounts a light on the front of the blade housing which casts a highly visible shadow of exactly where the blade will contact the work surface. Much more accurate than a laser and needs no adjustments. They are available on Amazon which also sells the Oshlund after market laser which replaces one of the washers on the blade arbor. That puts a laser mark just left or right (depending on which washer you replace) of the blade's contact/cut line. My 716 has the XPS and my Makita has the Oshlund. I prefer the XPS for sighting but like the Makita saw better (LS1016). The Oshlund will also fit the Dewalt 716. Hope this helps. Read Less

Mine doesn't have a laser on it. I think there is an after market kit you can get in order to instal one. Not sure about that though....

Answer: 
No it will not fit. DeWalt started producing type 20's in 2013 so anything you buy now is a type 20. They don't just randomly ship out 1-4,20 at the same time that would be silly (even sillier than producing 5 types of the same model without changing the model number, i know). The DWS7085 ONLY fits DW716 type 1-4 so do not bother trying if you recently purchased the saw. It will be a type 20. If you want Read More

It depends on which DW716 you have. On Motor plate if it says Type 1-4 then yes. If Motor Plate says Type 20 which I believe all that HD carries then no.

15 Amp 12 in. Double-Bevel Compound Miter Saw is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good saw, doesn't have the features shown I bought this saw after going through 3 ridgid 12" sliding compound mitre saws, all of which had blade wobble. The saw is a good saw, easy to set up and accurate. Although the pictures show that it has a laser guide, it does not, and in fact the laser guide made by dewalt is not even compatible with this saw. If you are looking for a basic no frills saw, this is a good option. If you are looking for additional features, look elsewhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Chop Saw Good saw. One piece fence is more accurate than other brands that have two piece fence. Holes in saw base don't line up with brackets for heavy duty mire saw stand that is free with saw purchase at Home Depot. Had to use washers to make it work. Saw does not come with laser. Cuts a 4x4 and also ok a 2x 12 if you remove the fence guides. I have been a contractor for 22 years and I recommend this saw.

This miter saw is the improvement compared to my previous Craftsman miter saw. Cuts are precise and the 12 in blade cuts base molding like butter but with precision. Overall I am very impressed with this miter saw and spending extra money for a Dewalt brand.

I don't like sliding saws because they are bulky and not as accurate and 10 inch saws are too small so this 12 inch saw it the perfect compromise. I've had this saw for years and use it almost everyday at work. It's accurate, reliable, compact and quiet. The motor is mounted in the back which means it doesn't get in the way like a side mounted direct drive motor would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 12 in miter saw I haven't had a chance to use the saw a lot, but first impressions are very good. I have owned saws from Hitachi, Harbor freight and Skill and it would appear to me that this is the best in quality..... it actually cuts a 90 deg when you want a 90..... that's kinda important.

Have only used a few times so far, but am very pleased with expected DeWalt quality. Only minor complaint is that the sawdust bag catches only a portion of the dust produced.
