Customer Questions & Answers

Just recieved this saw today, runs great cordless but saw is making excessive noise when it's set up corded. Anyone else have this issue?

Normal or do i have s defective cord set up?
Asked by: Andy
I dont have a definitive answer.I would ask if the motor feels warmer after the same amount of use with the batteries. Mine makes a little more noise but nothing alarming. I would call your local retailer and ask when the DeWalt Rep will be in next. He/She will have the best answer.I would not try calling the (1-800) number for them as they are not always well informed especially on newer products. Good lock!

Is the cutting line mechanism a light beam or laser?

Asked by: Woodie
It is a light beam. Although much better (inside) than the traditional laser, it is not much use outdoors.

Does power supply work with other Flexvolt tools and/or 20v tools?

Asked by: Bryon
Dewalt flex volt tools, yes. Other manufacturers use slightly different configurations and I don't believe they are compatible.

How long for the batteries to charge?

The video says "up to 289 cuts", but is that treated 2 x 6's or 1/4 round's ? Also how long does it take for the batteries to charge.
Asked by: PuntaGordaChris
The initial charge took a couple of hours on the rapid charge charger, subsequent chargings have taken about 45 minutes. I don't let my batteries get fully drained. I have 6 batteries and several of the new flexvolt tools so I always keep batteries charging.

Customer Reviews

FLEXVOLT 120-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion Cordless 12 in. Double Bevel Sliding Brushless Miter Saw Kit is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from "WOW" what a great saw! I have owned a DEWALT 12 in. miter saw (DW705) for a number of years with excellent results. All I have to say about this new DEWALT flexvolt sliding miter saw is “WOW”. Not only does it run on AC but two 60 volt batteries are included that will run the saw if you are not close to an electrical source. These batteries can also be used on other DEWALT power tools. On the batteries there is a fuel gauge that allows you to see how much charge is left on the batteries before you need to charge them. Everything you need to charge the batteries or connect the saw to an AC source is included. A material hold down clamp is also provided. The instruction booklet is a complete guide on how to use the saw which I recommend you read before using the saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Hands down, my favorite saw ever purchased and/or used. Dewalt has done a superb job of making I believe the best saw on the market right now. It's a 12" saw that for some reason feels like a 10". Precision cutting, awesome adjustability on micro adjustments to miters. It will cut base mold standing up at 6.75"...and that is also at a 45 degree cut btw. That is unheard of. It's also just a beautiful piece of machinery. The cutline light thing is also just an ingenious alternative to lasers which has I never liked. It is clear to me Dewalt wanted to make the best saw possible, and I think they may have done just that . I have not a single complaint. Quality quality quality. The cordless thing is just an added bonus for me. I can see how that will be awesome at certain job sites, I did test it out and am blown away with the power of the batteries. But really I was in the market for a new replacement to my 16 yr old dw708 and haven't been impressed with anything on the market until this baby. And wow, really. Great job Dewalt.

I have been a Makita man for 30yrs and i never thought for a moment that i would ever buy Dewalt. I have a Cabinetmaking shop and my time is split between making cabinets in the shop and House and Shed construction outside. I have always gone cordless were possible,but cordless tools do have there limitations.Now when i spotted this thing i was drawn to it like Richard Drayfus to the mountain in Close encounters of the third kind. So inevitably i purchased one with money that my wife had set aside for a new washing machine,boy am i getting it in the neck now,no gain without pain i guess Now i have had it for three days and we are joined at the hip,it ticks all the boxes plus boxes i did not know existed,i would give it six stars and will not be using Dewalts 90 day money back gaurantee,its a keeper

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly surprised Well sometimes you don't want to be the first to buy something new but I am stoked at well this bad boy has preformed. For the first day and a half of cutting and hanging 1x12 tongue and groove I did not recharge the batteries. I actually prefer using the batteries so far rather than the cord adapter. It is Precise and stong. No problem cutting though 5 1x12" at once. Definitely looking forward to seeing a Flex 60v impact. Got to be coming right?

I do a lot of odd jobs and I always find myself needing to cut in alleys, storage spaces, backyards, etc.. places where power wasn't always easy to get at or not available at all. The idea that I could switch from corded in my workspace to cordless when I'm out on a job is incredible. I was in the market for a 12" sliding saw for a home rehab project and I have some Dewalt 20v max tools so this was an easy decision for me. Playing with corded and cordless cuts I don't notice any difference in power and this thing does feel really powerful. It actually blows me away how much power is in this thing while running off the batteries. I honestly didn't expect it to deliver 100% but it does. The good: -Accurate great cuts out of the box -Very impressed with the included blades (it comes with 2!) -Love that I can use the batteries with my 20v max tools -coming from a laser marker I much prefer the cutline system this saw uses Other thoughts: Dust collection is ok, it is a little messier than my old miter saw. I have a photo included that shows the dust that accumulated after 15 cuts while using a shop vac in the built in dust channel. It's not bad/doesn't bother me but thought to include it in this review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw What drew me to this saw, besides the fact that I needed to upgrade from my very old compound miter saw, was the cordless feature. I do a lot of my cutting outside during the warmer months and don't have any electricity hooked up in my shed where I work, so I have to run an extension cord from the house. But in case my batteries aren't charged up, it's good to know I have a corded option if I need it. The corded option gives you about 6' of cord. I didn't find any lack of power while running on the batteries. It says you can make up to 289 Cross Cuts in 3-1/4" baseboard molding for a run time. I don't have to do too many cuts for each project, so for me I think my battery life will last a while. If not, I'm okay with having to charge up in between projects. I haven't had the need to do any bevel cuts yet so I didn't check the settings on the saw to see if everything was in line, but I did check the fence to make sure everything was straight. I didn't have to make any adjustments there. Testing out the bevel feature and pivoting the saw for miter cuts in terms of moving it around, I found it to be easy and sturdy. Nothing felt like it would slip out of place. The saw comes with a stock 12" 60T blade. For a stock blade, I got some very clean cuts so I'm going to stick with it until it needs to be changed out. It weighs 56 pounds and has a handle on the top for carrying it and slots underneath the base where you can grab it. It's too heavy for me to lug around so mine will live on a bench. It doesn't have a laser guide - many aren't reliable anyway. Instead, with the light that comes on when you start the saw, you'll see a shadow of the blade to see where you're cutting - their Cutline Blade Positioning System. I did find that the sliding mechanism felt a little sticky to me both pulling towards me and pushing back - more so pulling towards me. Not sure if that will go away after I break it in a bit. The dust catch bag seems a bit useless since this makes a ton of dust, more than my other saw. Even after only a few cuts, I had a dust covering everything. Given the FLEXVOLT battery is backwards compatible with their 20V MAX tools, it really offers an added feature if you're planning on purchasing other FLEXVOLT tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWSOME MITER SAW!!! This saw is pricey, but well worth it. I've done an entire small fence and still had plenty of life left on my batteries. No matter what I cut, whether it be tree trunks (yes tree trunks) 2x4s,baseboards, crown molding, wood flooring, it just cuts like butter. The dual charger works with 20/12v batteries also which is awsome and it charges fast.The led light is great for using outside at night and shadows the blade to see where you are cutting. All in all well worth it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Day 1 Job 1 Winner Just purchased and already love it. Installed approx. 2000 sq.ft. of flooring and base. Power was a long way away so batterys were key. Did all on one charge. In fact used one battery on 20 max circluar saw when it's battery ran out, avoided running out to truck. Saw is easy to adjust, slide is smooth, and the blade light with shadow works great, lights work and outlines blade on both sides for precise cuts either side of blade.
