Questions & Answers

is this product Dual bevel? and does it qualify for any coupons or discounts?

Asked by: Dorothy
It is a compound miter saw, meaning that it will bevel in two axes at the same time. HD/DeWalt frequently bundle this saw with a heavy-duty portable folding stand, which is well worth it if you aren't in a hurry.
Answered by: Jim

Is the stand included for the $599 price or is it an extra purchase?

Asked by: Murtch5002
No, the stand is sold separate.

Can you use a dado blade with this sliding compound miter saw.
Asked by: ElDub
Terrible idea. Dangerous and imprecise. Use a dado stack on a table saw to cut a groove and use a router to cut a dado. The latter makes a bit of a mess but it eliminates tearout.

15 Amp 12 in. Double Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 297.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good saw for do it yourself and pros I use this saw everyday and love the auto tilt bevel locks and cuts perfect. I do wish the saw dust system wasn't a mile long tube to the bag. Clogs up right away. The fence slides are hard to slide out and have to get hit with my hammer to extend them. I would like to see dewalt set up a different slide system, with the bag on the back I hack to have over 3to4 feet from a wall so my saw has clearance makes cutting in hallways on big jobs impossible. I would also like the saw to have a little more rpm saw bogs down on cuts and causes the blade to warp in my cuts also. I also would like a laser and tape measure marks on the saw fence or even on the platform for fast cuts. Great saw but could be better.

I have never had any issues and it cuts wood smoother than any saw I have ever used. Rarely do I have shards of wood sticking out from my cuts as I do with most other saws I have used. If there is a saw to buy, this is definitely the top of the line and worth every penny and will last you a lifetime. It may be a little on the heavy side when it comes to moving it around a bunch but that's to be expected with a saw of such high quality.

I owned my last Dewalt 12 inch sliding miter box for 12 years (I had 2 actually and one is 17) and use it daily. I will repair it and have as a back up, it needs new bearings and a set of brushes. The new model (DW780) is nice, as it cuts stock up to 6-1/2 standing up easily. The table slides easy between settings which is nice too. The light on the saw is great in low light conditions, which we experience on job sites often. I think so far, I like it better than its predecessor. Might be overkill for a DIY person, but definitely a professional saw.

I won't rehash reviews from real pros on here, however, I will say this saw is truly fantastic. Pro 1. The LED light that shines down onto the blade casts a shadow line EXACTLY there the blade will be cutting, better than a laser guide in my opinion 2. The blade that comes with it ain't no joke. Little oven cleaner to remove pine tar/resin and it's good as new after cutting a TON of wet PT lumber 3. Angles are dead on 4. If using common angle stops, ensure it snaps into the notch before you tighten down 5. Really like the quick/effortless lock on the angle adjustment 6. Solid steel angle stops for miter cuts 7. Can set depth stop for notching 6x6 posts easily 8. Find a friend and go half in :) ($300x2 aint bad) 9. The small notches in the blade guard allow for easy one hand manipulation if you need the guard up a little before the cut 10. Fence has holes for custom made jigs 11. Endless adjustments and uses for this thing 12. Machining and finish work is really top notch, very impressive. Cons 1. Expensive... but you get what you pay for, this is top notch no doubt about it. Investment grade tool right here. 2. Can't really get it's true potential without getting the roller stand (DEWALT DWX726 Rolling Miter Saw Stand) which is another $200. I missed the Sept/Oct sale 2017 where they were including the stand free with purchase of the saw. 3. Will need to keep scrap 2x4s around to use as a bump guide to get smaller items away from the fence so the parigee of the blade is correct when cutting smaller things.. otherwise the blade is pulling up on the material for the entire length of the cut instead of cutting down 4. The RED angle indicator is plastic and can be bumped to show incorrect angles. Would have preferred a cast indicator that can't be moved... but I understand manufacturing tolerances would probably need this to be movable. 5. BLADE IS HUGE if you are used to using a 10" chop saw, please use extra caution if you are not accustomed to using a 12" saw 6. Doesn't seem like a very big/beefy motor... time will tell. I did NOT notice any under-power issues. 7. Pay attention to the gauge and length of your extension cord, it does make a difference. 8. I didn't get this sooner in life TIP 1. Be sure to pull the blade all the way out and push away from you for the cut, not vice versa. 2. Pay attention to the gauge and length of your extension cord, it does make a difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built Bought a month ago and used to screen in our porch. Used in conjunction with miter saw stand. Made accurate cuts, made me look like a pro, which I’m not even close. Locks up real well, so no chance of slipping up on cut. This replaced my old Dewalt miter saw I had for 15 years and sold it still working like new, only sold because I moved 700 miles. All my power tools are Dewalt, they hold up real well. I have one suggestion for Dewalt, put wheels on miter stand.

Good quality, solidly built, none of the quality issues that some have described. HOWEVER, beware that the claims on the product page (above) are highly misleading. The product page says "designed to cut a 2x16 at 0 degrees" yet the manual states the maximum cut as 13.75". (I discovered this to be true when I tried to cut a 15 1/2 inch wide plywood shelf). Now, you "can" cut up to 16.1 inch IF you remove both fences and make a special table out of particle board or plywood (see the "special cuts" section in the manual - but the product as sold CANNOT do what they claim. Also, they state "base molding up to 6 1/2 inch vertically against the fence" - which to me implies a capacity of 6 1/2 in thick, right? Yet the manual states maximum cutting thickness of 4.4". Moral of the story is beware of what you're buying, & read the manual BEFORE you buy.
