The DW715 is powered by a 15 Amp motor and comes equipped with a 12-inch carbide blade which spins at 4,000 rpm. Accuracy is a critical component for a solid miter saw and the DW715 delivers. The DW715 incorporates an adjustable stainless steel miter detent plate with 11 positive stops for the most common miter cuts. The saw features a miter detent override which allows the user to override the miter stops and adjust to the miter setting desired without the saw slipping into the miter detents while the new precise miter system delivers more repeatable and accurate miter angles. The cam lock miter handle eliminates the need to twist the miter handle to lock in on the miter angle and delivers a quick and solid miter lock. The innovative machined base fence design delivers long term fence straightness by providing additional support to the fence. The DW715 delivers the capacity to cut up to 6-1/2-inch base molding against the fence when mitered to the left and crosscut capacity up to 2 x 8 dimensional lumber. The saw can be beveled to the left 0 to 48 degrees and to the right 0 to 3 degrees with positive stops at 0 degrees, 45 degrees and 33.9 degrees for cutting crown molding laying flat. Weighing in at less than 42 pounds and equipped with comfortable side handles in the base, the DW715 is designed to be extremely portable.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 94 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great mitre saw This is a good sturdy saw, haved used it to cut many 2x4 and crown moulding. I have put this saw through the paces, banged it up quite a bit and yet still stays true. I often do framing with this saw by cutting two studs at a time. Often hit the side guard loading them on in a hurry, it has never cracked. Cut strapping quickly, 4 at a time. The hold down is beefier than any mitre saw on the market. Cutting crown moulding is a breeze with positive stops. Easy to change from constuction blade to fine cutting blade. Perfect orientation of handle. Fits my ridgid mitre saw stand perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid Review for the Dewalt 12" Mitre Saw The Dewalt 12" mitre saw has proven to be a 5 Star tool in my books. In my profession, Trim Carpentry, we operate our saws from 7:00am until 5:00pm daily so reliable, portable, tools are key. I've been using the dewalt saws for a number of years now and have never been disappointed with my purchases. Would I recommend this product to a friend? Absolutely, I personally own three saws for my trim crews and one for my woodworking shop. November 24, 2007
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product True to Dewalt's history, this tool is an excellent combination of performance and value. I would recommend an upgraded blade for finishing work (80 tooth cross-cut). December 6, 2008
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Saw for $400.00 I just got this saw and it's the best saw I have ever used yet. Can't say enough good things about it, overall you need to try it and see for yourself; It's great. December 31, 2007
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great saw! Poor dust collection. Great saw! Smooth gliding table & accurate cuts and angles! Very strong and sturdy. Dust collection is quite poor. I feel that Dewalt could have done much better in this area. Only collects about 50% of the dust. March 18, 2014
