Summary: Asked a full time carpenter about the saw before I bought it. He highly recommended both the Compound Miter saw (this one) and the Sliding Compound Miter saw (also the DeWalt brand). Wished I could have afforded the sliding Compound miter saw...this is a great alternative. In the first week of owning it - I have successfully built a small rolling cabinet for the saw and a 60"X36" work table. Easy to handle. The gauges are not the cheap peel and stick. Very stable.
Summary: I never got to use my saw since it shipped with a broken casting. I could see marks on the broken part where a bolt was obviously over-tightened. CPO, however, was fantastic. One phone call and I had my RMA. My refund was honored immediately after CPO received the defective saw. I've purchased other products from CPO with no problems so I look at this as a quality control problem with DeWalt.
Summary: I owned a 12" dewalt and had to sell it (cancer). this 10" does everything I want it to do very well. Angel setting locks into place. The bevel ajustment has a metal handle. Checked the settings every one was correct. This saw cuts as easy though a 4x4 as it does a 1x4. All for a good price and when the box arrived the saw looks like new!!! I will buy another tool form CPO soon. Also the staff is top of the crop.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Cutting Speed, Good Design, Great Blade, Powerful
The DeWalt 10 " Miter Saw is the best buy I could of made,use it

Summary: I have been using the DeWalt miter saw for my bussiness for over 10 years now,would go to a job with out it. It nis so light that my guys do not complain about having to unload it. I can be set up and cutting in half the time of the other brands on the market. the cuts are always neat and clean, the best part is the ease in which I can change angles for different cuts.
Summary: My husband is a retired Home Improvement Contractor, now he does alot of handyman jobs, mostly what he did when he was a contractor. I pay close attention when I go on job sites with him now and I am pretty familiar with his tools and lately I have been asking him about certain tools he would love to have. When I got him on the subject of Miter Saws he told me about the Dewalt 15 amp compound miter saw he saw in Sears last week.
Summary: i picked this saw up used from my neighbor. his construction business went under, so they were selling most everything off. i was hesitant to buy such a well used miter saw, but eventually forked over the sixtyfive bucks, hoping this dewalt product still had some life left. so far, this tool has not let me down. it performs as well as one right out of the box. ive used it for cutting a variety of angles, and everything come out perfect. i could not be happier.
