Customer 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.

When Dewalt and Home Depot will run the combo offer for the DWS780 and stand again? Waiting for this combo plus the DWE7491RS miter saw combo too

Going to finishing my basement. Need a lot of new tools. I have been reaearching and rwally like the reviews on the Dewalt DWS780 and the DWE7491RS saws. Stands are over $200 each so worth waiting until both units on combo special to save $400 if I am going to spend over $1000 on these 2 saws.

Does the 780 have a laser?

Asked by: jslaughter
No it does not have a laser. It has a light that casts a shadow of the blade making your cuts more accurate. The saws that I have used with a laser, have the laser mounted to the side of the blade. This means you have to compensate for the offset.

Had a furniture builder recommend this saw to me. He said he wouldn't buy anything other then a DEWALT. Currently using the saw to remodel my basement and it hasn't missed its mark yet. Didn't have any issues with the slider. Wasn't impressed that I had to register my warranty. No complaints with the saw!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mr I bought this saw at my local Home Depot. The quality and function of the saw is stellar. However, there is one huge problem. This is a 12" miter saw with a 5/8" arbor. While this may not seem like a problem, it is... why? Because Home Depot does not sell 12" blades with a 5/8" arbor!!! How can you sell a saw in the store that you don't sell replacement blades for?!?!

My old saw gave up after ten years of use & abuse by my employees.i purchased the above saw at the store#6604 at San Ramon with the help of Barry at pro desk after compering three different brand of saws.i chose the above saw because of the weight,what it does & it is so user friendly anybody can use it & also the degree marks & other marking are large & very visible,a little bit pricey but you get what you pay for.Very satisfied & happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Contractor's Work Horse We're a small but busy company. We are strong believers in "The right tool for the Job" makes a difference. This tool has been the hub and work horse on all our sites for the past 4 years and it's still going! We've used it for every type of lumber hard and soft, composite decking, aluminum, copper, PVC and ABS pipes, siding and even a 2 measuring tapes... We've also used it for metal studs and aluminum door frames in commercial renovations, It's been used and abused by careless tradesmen and subs, it's been tossed in back of trucks and trailers, it's been left out in the rain & snow and blistering heatwaves. Other then blades, all it ever needed was a new pair of brushes... This tool changed the image my guys & I had about DeWalt tools, made us believers in their "GUARANTEED TOUGH" slogan. We strongly recommend this tool for contractors and homeowners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw but a bit pricey by itself. Make sure you get the free stand! Spent hours in store and online looking for a new saw and came across this in Home Depot. I read lots of reviews, mostly good but the $599 price tag was just $50 less than the Bosch Model #GCM12SD 15 Amp 12 in. Dual Bevel Glide Miter Saw that I really wanted, and I thought I might as well get the Bosch. Then I noticed the in store ad for this saw with a stand included, both for $599 which turned out to be an excellent deal (the Dewalt stand model #DWX723 sells for $199). I would've paid close to $900 for a saw and stand if I had gone with Bosch. I am a DIYer, not a pro so I really don't need the very best of everything. Turns out this saw was much better than expected. I'm making kitchen cabinets and this saw cuts maple, poplar, oak (and everything else I throw at it) like butter. I thought I would have to purchase a separate laser but the attached light feature uses the saw blades shadow to pinpoint accuracy for every cut, it creates a dead straight line right on the cutting surface so it's pretty much idiot proof. So far I've had no problems and regrets with this saw.
