Is this saw direct or belt driven?
Asked by: OBCarpenter
This saw is belt driven which allows the motor to be rearward of the blade and increaes depth of cut.

15-Amp Corded 12 in. Double-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 151.

I bought this slider to replace a 20 year old non sliding DeWalt miter saw that has served me well. I like it, and as the shop I work in has 3 that get used heavily and well, I expect it to last me till I quit. The only 2 things I don't like is that it is huge, and will require more space in my home shop than my non slider, and the dust collection is not much better than my old saw. I bought the 779 because it is at least $200.00 less than the 780 and the only difference between the two is the XPS system. Yes the XPS system is better than a laser line but as a professional, I value my knowledge of my tools and their workings over a shadow line. For some it may help, but for my fading old eyes, a marked line is what I am used to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Mitre Saw I purchased this Dewalt DWS779 from Home Depot Moncton, NB after messing up (2) 2X8 rectangular box with my el cheapo 9 in with about the same features. I had in mind to return it if it is as dumb as I am when it comes to cut and join 45 degree corners. So I followed all the instructions and 1/2 hour later I knew just enough to run a trial job: I used a 2X4 and cut four lenghts of 22" assembled them and as per the picture it is as perfect as I wanted it. When the length is as small as this one, any defects would be amplified; the longer the piece the less likely will you notice the defects. I also googled " how to cut perfect 45 degree with a mitre saw" and now I can do anything I set my mind to do. I am 68 years old and believe me when I say that when it comes to tools, spend a little more by purchasing top brands such as Dewalt and the results will surprise you. In fact I purchased this one while it was on sale. It does not have a laser line and to my point of view it is what it is... a gadget. Oh, by the way, I am keeping this gorgeous beast., worth the money and the 5 stars.

I built homes and used it every day. Last year I had to replace the motor in it or get a new one and decided to replace the motor cause I was so happy with this saw. It is durable and has been a very great saw over the years, from finish to framing to all kinds of siding. I bought it with a stand and recommend getting a stand too. Most stands nowadays have guides and rollers attached to them to cut long materials.The stand also protects it from getting damaged in travel. Most reliable I own!

I do recommend that you change out the blade that comes with this saw to a little finer tooth blade. Like a 60 tooth. It comes with a 32 tooth. I purchased two Diablo blades for this saw, a 60T and a 100T for fine molding work. Home Depot also sells these as well. A great combo.

Like many of the unboxing videos for this product, it came well packed and set up perfectly aligned. It feels very sturdy. I’ve used it so far to cut a number of p.t. 4x6’s and d.f. 2x4’s and it cuts easily and extremely accurately. A pleasure to use after skill and chop saws.

Most of my tools are Dewalt (disclaimer) and they are all solid. Cut a lot of trim with this and very easy to use for clean, crisp cuts. Got it on sale $399 + tax, but very happy with HD shipping to my house.

It cuts very consistent and accurate, it’s easy to get what you want from the saw. Dust collection is excellent into the bag, but really nice when attached to the vacuum system. The included blade works well. Basically this is an amazing saw, wish I had bought this years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It replaced a DW7080 I purchased new 18 years ago... It replaced a DW7080 I purchased new 18 years ago that had become too hard to calibrate. The new DeWalt is working out great. Many improvements have been made and the cuts have been spot on right out of the box. And the pricing could not be beat by other stores and brands.
