Questions & Answers

Can the saw remain mounted on the stand when folding the stand?

Can the saw remain mounted on the stand when folding the stand?
Asked by: Max
Yes. The stand can be collapsed with the Saw attached. You can then wheel it to your next location before raising it again.

How big of a box does this come in? Will it fit in a car or trunk?

Asked by: srossi
It fit into my Mazda3 hatch...box is about 6 feetx9"x11", so it's not going to fit in a conventional car trunk.

can you mount a dual 12 inch sliding compound miter on the stand?

Asked by: ridgerunner
Yes, However, the 12" sliding miter is a heavy tool to pick up and mount on the stand. I bought the stand for the Dewalt 12" saw. The intended use for the stand is for Dewalt Miter saws.

15 Amp 12 in. Double Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 1056.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Dissapointed with DeWalt I bought this saw this past weekend. July 27 2019. The stand came with the saw. Great price so I got it. I had been saving up for this saw quite a long time. Wish I had bought something else. First like others that have written reviews I had on of the same issues. One of the most common was the blade dragging. The blade scored the black plastic under the kerf line. And this was prior to turning on the saw. I wanted to be proactive if this had the same issue. So then the stand had a broken quick release. (DWX723) Now I'm getting a little upset. Then finally I cut a piece of wood. What a joke.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always accurate I’ve been using this saw on job sites for almost 3 years now and it’s been accurate, powerful and never lets me down. The XPS light is my favorite feature, saves time on all cuts. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw at a great value The Dewalt 12 in. Compound Slide saw is my new favorite tool. I had to decide between the Rigid and Dewalt, both are very high-quality but I ultimately chose the Dewalt because it is lighter weight, thus easy for me to transport. It would be nice if Dewalt offered the lifetime warranty like the Rigid does, which makes it a tough decision. Anyway, I've used the saw for framing, crown and trim work. This saw is precise and the adjustment mechanisms are quick and easy to use. The backlit blade is also a nice feature and it gives you a pretty accurate idea as to where your cut will be made. The slide is the only way to go in my opinion. It allows you to make cuts on large boards in one swoop whereas in the past I would have to flip the board to finish the cut. The motor is very stout and has powered through everything I’ve cut thus far. I am happy with my purchase and look forward to using the saw for years to come.

Really nice saw, right out of the box the factory setup was square and angle indents are very accurate, I am a machinist by trade, so I look for perfection, so I ran an indicator and checked square against the fence to the blade and along the travel of the slide and was within .005 pretty impressive. Very smooth operation. The led light is awesome great addition and saves time. The only fault I found was in the aluminum casting, from the swivel where the head is mounted to the far reach travel of the saw the blade almost hits the kerf plate to the left. I have seen this problem in several other reviews. DeWalt really needs to correct this. Pull the casting molds and make them right. A $600.00 saw should not show any kind of misalignment, This is a Quality control issue they really need to address. While this doesn't affect the operation of my saw, I expect better quality for the price point.

Overall, best saw in its class. The stand is easy to use. The hydraulic assist is 1000x easier than the Rigid stand. The saw is very user friendly. All of the functions are simple and smooth; angle change, bevel change, lockout, slide action, etc. The light is cool and sometimes convenient. The saw has plenty of power to tackle any task I have throw its way. This saw is an absolute work horse. It did require some minor tweaking to meet my standards for finer woodworking but this saw is framer accurate out of the box. The tuning was very easy. I use this saw in my woodshop and find the dust collection to be 7:10, its a slider so I didn't have high expectations. At work we use the Rigid version of this saw and I would hands down recommend the Dewalt over the Rigid. The Rigid is very rough and user functions are difficult to perform. Nearly everything on the Rigid is plastic and broken (after a year of some use); angle change, slide out stands, saw mounts, and the lockout. If you can swing the extra dollars then consider the cordless version that has the plug, it's always nice to have options and I sometimes regret not buying that version. In the end I am satisfied and would purchase again. Thank you Dewalt for another quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw!! Even as a serious DIYer, I was a little hesitant to purchase such a high end miter saw, but I must say that I am not disappointed. This is a great saw. I am currently remodeling a 103 year old Victorian. The 60 degree swing cut the collar ties for my 8/12 roof with no problem. The XPS blade alignment feature is really nice. It is easy to make very accurate cuts when you can see exactly where the blade will hit. My old saw had a laser guide, but there was still some guess work when cutting. Not so with this saw. The blade that comes with the saw is nice for rough carpentry, but order a finer tooth blade if you need to avoid tear-outs. Haven't tried the saw on crown molding yet, but with all the presets, and the fact that I bought the crown fence as well, I don't foresee any problems. The dust collection is adequate. You'll do some sweeping, but the bag does fill up fast, so it catches the majority of the mess. Highly recommended.

I was eager to get started on a cabinetry project, and after much research and after reading countless online reviews, I decided to go with DeWalt's top-of-the-line miter saw DWS780. A local Home Depot had one in stock, so off I went. Upon unpacking and setting it up, and after reading the manual, I've decided to get started. To my surprise, I quickly realized that the saw was so badly misaligned that it begun to cut into the kerf plate (see photo). I read through the manual again to see if there's an adjustment to be made, all to no avail. Upon e-mailing DeWalt's customer support, I was told to take (or ship) the unit to a repair center. Not exactly the sort of experience I was expecting after just shelling $600 for a top-of-the-line miter saw. Thank goodness for Home Depot's easy returns. I must say that over the years, DeWalt's quality control has nosedived. For a precision cutter such as this to leave the factory floor is truly unfortunate.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good saw while it lasts!! first id like to say I am a professional finish carpenter and use my saw every day. I started my business 5 1/2 years ago and unfortunately have now already gone through 2 of these! The first one lasted 2 1/2 years before the brushes went out in the motor and had to wait 3 months before I got that back. But since I have to have a saw I bought another one while it was being fixed under warranty. When I got it back I sold it, but 2 weeks ago my newer saw has the same problem with the brushes in the motor and h.d. just called and told me since im 6 months over warranty I have to spend another $176.50 to have them replace the brushes! so in 5 1/2 years I have now spent close to $1300.00 on these saws!! I have numerous dewalt tools that I have boght from h.d. and will not be buying anymore. if you aren't planning on using this saw very much, im sure it will last longer. but for people like me who use it every day for business, id look else where! Just my two cents
