Pretty good saw. A little lighter & laser needed
Overall I'm pretty happy with this saw. I'm a basic DIY person. At age 65 and 5' 5" I needed my wife help me carry it since it weighs 68 lbs. Cuts were clean and accurate. Being able to make micro adjustments for the degrees when doing vertical cuts is nice. The dual bevel feature with gauge worked well. I found the dust collection when cutting wasn't the greatest. My old 10" RYOBI had a laser which was nice. The drawback of course is the laser could be off but I found it was accurate and missed not having it on this saw. Over all I would recommend this saw. If I don't get the full use out of it I'm sure my son in-law will.

Attaching a 'universal' stand
I haven't actually used this yet, but I'm reviewing the fact that I bought this because it was on sale, and the RIDGID Universal Mobile Mitre Saw Stand with Mounting Braces, that they say is universal. BUT with this saw, the way it rotates to the mitre spots, the mounting nut and bolds DO NOT WORK. They stick up too tall and don't allow full rotation, plus the back ones stop the saw from extending back. Even if you use their option 2 of mounting on a board, it still wouldn't work. My fix, after 2 days of trying to figure it out, was to turn the mounting bars around, buy new operator side hex nuts and bolts (5/8ths) that can sink in the spots and sawed off the back ones. You have to make sure they can be reachable inside the mounting bars. I like the saw and I like the stand, I'm just trying to make others less frustrated.

    Not worth it
    I bought this saw two years ago big Milwaukee too user but highly disappointed only use it for personal home use while doing some crown molding in my house I realize the blade was breaking and making a grinding sound sent it to the Milwaukee drop off location one month later saw came back with the problem looks like they used something to pry the handle open look below black section in photo and other places on the saw and looks like there is glue on the handle which wasn’t there before highly sad and heart broken about this

      Its a nice saw, mechanically it works great, real accurate. The angle meter didn't work on the first one or the second one, sent the 2nd one back. I like the saw so I will keep it, just have to send it into Milwaukee tool repair to fix the display.

      Cuts straight
      Ok saw. It cuts straight, but simple annoyances haven't been addressed. Blade lock pin for lower position (if you're not chopping) is way too small. The pin to lock the forward/backward movement is also too small. Product needs just a little more engineering... Finally, the safety mechanism at trigger was flimsy and fell off on first day of use. It does cut straight though...

      Not bad, Not Great
      The saw itself seems fairly powerful and accurate but the digital gauge is already broken! Parts of the display dont work, so I cant read the numbers. My workshop is full of milwaukee tools, and this is my first bad experience. Crest fallen.

      First one arrived with defective LCD readout. Home Depot made for an easy exchange. Something to be said for buying from a store with a brick and mortar presence. Regarding some of the previous complaints - a clamp comes with the saw that attaches to either side of the blade, and both the right and left fences are adjustable. Saw cuts smoothly, in particular the rails are like glass. I'm a weekend do-it-your-self'er, from what I can see the saw is accurate for both miter and bevel cuts from the factory. I haven't adjusted anything but it works well for me. Very happy with the purchase, didn't see the value in bumping up to the Festool and I don't think anything else comes close. Paired with a Bosch T4B gravity rise stand and a Freud blade and it's an awesome combo.

      Love the saw
      It’s bigger than it appears. You’re better off to get the Milwaukee stand and not another brands. The others are all too small

      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.
