Makita changed the game with the 10 in. Dual Slide Compound Miter Saw (model LS1016). With a crown molding cutting capacity of 6-5/8 in. (vertically nested), the LS1016 has the largest crown-cutting capacity in its class. The LS1016 has a patented 4-steel rail sliding system that further increases rigidity to produce superior cuts, and the exclusive 6 linear ball bearings are engineered for smooth, adjustment-free, dead-on accurate cuts. Another key point of difference is the direct drive motor with soft start, which delivers smoother start-ups and constant power, with no belts to slip or replace. In addition, the electronic speed control maintains constant speed under load for smoother, higher-quality cutting.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by What's not to like! This isn't a saw, it's a work of art. I needed a good sliding compound miter saw as my old standard 10" just didn't have enough capacity. The makita is more than I expected. The angle stops are all dead on, and I mean DEAD ON ! The laser is a dream. It comes facory set at 1mm from the blade but it's easily set to the exact cut line, and, it can be quickly set to either right or left side of the blade. Overall it's a very well made, sturdy saw with plenty of capacity. It's definately not the cheapest compound out there, but it's worth every penny and then some. February 19, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by table adjustments are hard to make , bevel adjustments are easy overall it is the best 10" saw I have used. shipping was very good. April 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Nice! I've been looking for a dual bevel miter saw, but considering the size and weight of the 12" models, figured I'd purchase a standard 10" unit. I found this saw on YouTube and did some research. Overall, I'm not disappointed. It is the only 10" saw that can cut 12" material on the flat. It is pretty easy to use (as a homeowner, do-it-yourself person, I did have a little bit of a learning curve) and is very accurate. It isn't as easy to tote around like my former 10" saw, but it isn't as cumbersome as one would think. I like the laser feature, even though its hard to see in direct sunlight. I have purchased several Makita tools over the years, and place this at the top of the quality list. My only complaint is the owner's manual could be improved. I ended up downloading the manual so I could enlarge it on my computer. The saw was more expensive than I wanted to pay, but now that I have it, I feel it was worth the price. I don't know how a contractor would rate this saw, but for the amount of work I've done over the years, I think this is a nice tool for the home hobbyist. July 12, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Difficult to learn controls but they function properly I own two other sliding miter saws 12" & 7 1/4 both were more user friendly out of the box than the Makita 10" the others also came with the blade on & square to the fence the Makita needed to be squared it took many attempts before I was able to get it square. The controls are more difficult to understand but work well. The standard blade is very nice it cuts smooth. Dust collection is not great even with a vacuum attached it still blows around plenty of saw dust. The slow start motor is very smooth. February 11, 2014
