Answer: 
No this saw does not, it has an over head light system. However, once you understand the blade placement it is every bit as accurate. I attached a you tube video that will allow a complete review from an independent use. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
No it does not include the stand. Look on this sight and pick one out or do what I did buy one from Amazon and you can get free shipping from them. Do not but the Power mate 7000 stand. I got that one and I am not happy with it at all.

We do not recommend modifying the 6955-20 Milwaukee® 12" Sliding Dual Bevel Miter Saw in any way as it will void the warranty or may cause the tool to be unsafe.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 93 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Decent The dust collection intake is too low the table needs to be a typical measurement so that you could set it up on a piece of plywood pick up a few drops & bam your ready to go May 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It works great! The saw is extremely heavy so if you are able to use it on a work bench, the weight is not an issue. When I saw the size of the box when it was delivered, I thought, oh my, what have I bought. But, I love the it cuts wide lumber without having to turn the board around or lift the board up for it to cut. It works really well. I think the price is associated with the brand since there are others that are less expensive that can do the same thing. I am sold on the brand though. March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I read all the reviews to make sure this review addressed the market concerns Let us start by stating this review is based on a large construction crew of both framers amd finishers. We own 15 units at this time. Bought the first one in 2006. Unlike others who experianced problems we maintain and service all our tools in regular intervals as well as clean an lubricate them. We have never had a failure on any of the 15 units. Except for a burned out lamp. Each saw has well over 2000 hours of service against it. I do agree it is a heavy saw but on my experiance you get what you pay for and tools are always about the guage of material they are made from. As tools go it is a portable saw. Its is not too heavy in our opinion and we dont believe they should be left out side to allow the elements to cause a failure. Our insurance carrier would deem that negligence. February 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid Saw Saw was delivered quickly with no damage. The miter and bevel were spot-on accurate right out of the box. The digital miter reading seems like a nice touch. The slide and carriage assembly is smooth with no noticeable flex. December 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This saw works wonderfully We bought this saw mainly for putting in our new hardwood floors and trim. It has exceeded our expectations. I love the digital miter control, it operates smoothly, cleanly and accurately. I will using this in the future for many more projects that I thought I would not be able to construct myself. October 30, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This saw is a MONSTER! This saw is Awesome. From the digital read out to the power of the motor. It is large and heavy but sets on a very stable base. The saw was squared to the table right out of the box with the blade already on. This really was a "plug'n'go" saw. The hand grip is very comfortable and user friendly with a switch easily accessible for the LED lights. I did use the saw at night, using only the LED's to light my cut line. I was impressed. The miter has built in stops that are actually true and lock in with ZERO slop. The true power test for me was a cut across grain in a piece of 3" thick 6" wide white oak. It was like I was cutting a 1x4 piece of PINE! There was no power loss at all. It was a quick smooth cut. I've used most of the brands out there, and this is definitely the BEST. The draw backs are: not a wide table, but due to the weight of the saw, anymore weight would not make this a portable saw. No hold downs and I wish the digital readout was on a switch, It is on the whenever the saw is plugged in. December 4, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Accurate, smooth, powerful and easy to adjust. everything as described as well as the best warranty in the business. It is heavy, so be aware of that. Home Depots customer service is great also. January 4, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice, but... It is a saw that is versatile and makes excellent cuts. The saw can get too hot after continual use of about an hour (cut approx. 60-2x10s in that time). This is the only thing that keeps me from giving it 5 stars. In comparison, my Makita circular saw was run just as heavily and wasn't even warm. At first I missed the laser sight but the light allows me to continue to work in shadow and that has been a nice addition. The blade placement takes a little getting used to, but it is very consistent and very powerful. For its size and for what it is, the saw is rather light but far from compact. I would definitely recommend this product. April 29, 2015
