This saw with the stand is a dream to use. I would recommend to anyone! The LED light is excellent.

I am a carpenter with lots of experience with all major brands. I don't use Milwaukee tools but bought this saw because of lots of research.
Many magazines and online reviews raved about it so I decided to give it a try.
As soon as I set it up there were problems. The roller supports on the stand were welded completely out of square so that the supports were about 1/2" out of level and also about 1/2" out of square with the saw.
I immediately called Home Depot and they said that in order to get a new stand I would have to send back the saw as well.
I live about 2 hours from the nearest Home Depot so I decided that it was too much work and I would just buy a De Walt stand later.
A few days later I put the saw to work.
Table slides incredibly smooth for miter cuts. Rails seemed pretty smooth as well. I was building a deck with pressure treated 2 x 10.
Very soft wood and easily cut. However , when I tried to take a 1/16" off of a board the blade would deflect and wander. It was literally impossible to make the cut on numerous blocks that I tried.
I realize that it comes with a bad blade but even a blade that had chewed through nails should be able to do that cut. I also noticed a bit of side to side play in the head and an overall cheap feel to it.
Needless to say I have returned it and will be purchasing either the Bosch or the De Walt 12".

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Curran2009 Milwakee 12 sliding bevel saw
Toss up between milwakee and dewalt .. Bought milwakee.....1st mistake.
If I could return it would replace it with the dewalt.
Right hand fence .. Cannot slide out . Noiser than Dewalt.... Borrowed a friends saw to do crown mouldings, his saw has crown moulding fence attachments which can be purchased from dewalt. Milwakee do not make any any extras for the saw .. Missing a trick.
No way to put crown moulding fence like the dewalt... Beware if you plan to do crown mouldings save yourself money and time buy the dewalt. Hd any chance of swapping this for dewalt?????? Disappointed with this milwakee tool.ALL my other power tools are milwakee and are excellent ....

Rated 4 out of 5Â by deck2013 Was stuck between the milwaukee and rigid, decided to go with the milwaulkee brand since it came with a stand at no extra cost, and the price was right. I'm no pro in the wood business but for angles (especially with a wife who wants fancy designs) it performed great.
The only thing I would suggest to Milwaukee is to put in a laser to see where you are cutting, that's why I've rated the saw a 4 star.

First Milwaukee tool I've ever purchased and it wont be the last. Saw sets up really easily. Once you have it on the the table it is very easy to transport, table works great. Dust collection works great. I have no complaints. Very accurate cuts, smooth operation. I expect this is the last Mitre saw I'll need to buy. I picked it up during the home depots $$ off tools event, it qualified for $125 off, no regrets. I've used it for a new fence, deck, hard wood floors, and now starting to install crown molding.
