Questions & Answers

is this product Dual bevel? and does it qualify for any coupons or discounts?

Asked by: Dorothy
It is a compound miter saw, meaning that it will bevel in two axes at the same time. HD/DeWalt frequently bundle this saw with a heavy-duty portable folding stand, which is well worth it if you aren't in a hurry.

Does the 780 have a laser?

Asked by: jslaughter
No it doesn't have a laser. It has the XPS LED lighting system. It's actually a low tech feature that works better than the high tech lasers. LED lights are mounted above the blade and cast a clear shadow under the blade. Where the shadow falls, so does your blade! I love it! It's well worth the extra cost!

15 Amp 12 in. Double Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 172.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Saw I purchased this saw to speed up the process of retrimming the interior of our house. A miter box just wasn't doing it fast enough (or precise enough for my taste, but I know that's my impatience with my skill level). If you can do geometry, you can use this saw. Get a new blade for it, as the stock one started chipping out the finish on my baseboards after one room. I replaced it with a Diablo blade, and this thing is a beast now. I mounted mine on a Ridgid portable rolling stand instead of the DeWalt stand because price. Just as good. Excellent saw for home DIY enthusiast and wood fabricators.

Really nice saw, right out of the box the factory setup was square and angle indents are very accurate, I am a machinist by trade, so I look for perfection, so I ran an indicator and checked square against the fence to the blade and along the travel of the slide and was within .005 pretty impressive. Very smooth operation. The led light is awesome great addition and saves time. The only fault I found was in the aluminum casting, from the swivel where the head is mounted to the far reach travel of the saw the blade almost hits the kerf plate to the left. I have seen this problem in several other reviews. DeWalt really needs to correct this. Pull the casting molds and make them right. A $600.00 saw should not show any kind of misalignment, This is a Quality control issue they really need to address. While this doesn't affect the operation of my saw, I expect better quality for the price point.

When we moved to Arizona it broke my heart to sell the first one. I just could not take it with me. I had my first one for six years and never had a problem. So when I finally got settled I purchased the same saw again. This saw is amazing and accurate. The features that stand out to me are predetermined angles that are used most frequently. The only flaw the saw has is the dust collection bag. It never stays on. I finally figured out a way to hook the hose from my shop vacuum to collect the dust. All in all I think for the money in my opinion you can't get a better miter saw.

I bought this saw about a year ago and have only used it a handful of times. The first time I tried to angle the blade the pin popped that held it at 90 degrees and learned the threads were stripped that released the arm. Must have been used and returned to Home Depot broken. Home Depot will not return nor will DeWalt honor the warranty to fix. I need to pay $200 to get something fixed that was broken when I bought it. I've learned that the DeWalt warranty is not what is claimed and will not likely purchase another high cost tool from Home Depot or DeWalt. Very disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not good enough It's OK if cutting 1× pine materials, but not good enough for hard woods. This saw rpm are to low in my experience. So with that been said if you cutting a piece of 3/4×8" of oak on a bevel it will leave burn marks, no to mention how much deflection the blade will create along the cut. Worst sliding miter saw I have ever used, and trust me I onw 4 sliding miter saw , including the dewalt 708 which is an outstanding piece of equipment I called a beast. but this one it won't make to my garage , if you looking for a sliding miter saw do your research because this one is over rated

I purchased the saw to cut an aluminum closet door track for a sliding closet door. I also purchased a DIABLO 96 tooth blade that said it would cut non ferrous. The saw and the blade work perfect they track did not distort in any way. I was using an older 10 inch craftsman that has been an excellent saw but it was not big enough to cut the track. This saw has plenty of power and a lot of cutting area due to the sliding bar. The only other saw I would have purchased would be the Battery version of this. This saw had a stand with it that made the choice for me over the battery version. For those worrying about the 5/8 or 1 inch the blade that comes with the saw has the washer in it to adapt the 5/8 to 1 inch blade.

I've only used the saw for about a month, I replaced a DWS713 that was about 18 months old because I wanted the extra capacity for wider material. So far this thing has done everything I wanted and remains quite square requiring no further adjustments (but I still check before using). Its much deeper than I had anticipated and I have to re-think the saw station I'm planning along one wall of my shop, but other than that great tool so far. It comes with a vertical material clamp that I haven't used, not sure I ever will.
