The Makita LS1216L 12 in. dual slide miter saw delivers the largest crosscutting and crown cutting capacity in its class. It has a patented 4-Steel Rail Sliding System that further increases rigidity to produce superior cuts, and an exclusive 6 linear ball bearing design for smooth, adjustment-free, “dead-on” accurate cuts. The LS1216L is ideal for bench top and jobsite use as well as high-production/manufacturing settings. The LS1216LX5 includes the Jobsite Miter Saw Stand (WST05). The stand has large solid rubber wheels for easier jobsite portability, with material support extensions that extend up to 9' with adjustable leg supports for increased cutting accuracy.
