Answer: 
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The Makita 10.5 Amp 8-1/2 in. Slide Compound Miter Saw (LS0815F) has a bevel range of 48 degrees to the left but only 5 degrees to the right. Therefore, this is not a dual bevel saw.

Is there anything included to replace the supplied bag with a connection to a dust collection system? Or is there anything that can be purchased to do this? It appears like there is an adapter of some sorts in the videos I have seen, but I am seeing no mention of it anywhere in the manuals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw I remodel kitchens and do trim work this thing is light weight and cuts true. Was sick of carrying my 12" around this things worth it, some reviewers say they've had problems with it being out of alignment, guess I'm lucky I love this thing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great saw Purchased this tool recently. All i can say great product , light weight, easy to operate . Worth every penny .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw, portable sizing. No adjustments needed out of the box. Decent, not great blade which I replaced with Freud/Diablo. Light enough for easy moving by this 62 year old guy. No laser but I put an Oshlund (? :-P) which works well except in direct sunlight. Single bevel with easy lock an score release though I wish it were a dual bevel. Soft start and blade brake are great, make long hours easier and faster. Didn't think it would matter but when I went back to my 12" Dewalt (too lazy to change blades for small job) the difference was very obvious. Occasionally I need dual levels and slightly more thickness so the next large job may have me in the 10" which will also match my table saw at 10" so blades will be interchangeable. Much easier and comfortable to use and move than a big saw. It is now my go to saw. I'd buy another in a heartbeat, before I'd get a 10" or 12".
