Summary: I bought the miter saw to cut crown molding and it worked with fantastic results. The built in stops for the angles make cutting crown easy. The bag does a great job collecting the saw dust making clean up a snap. The only compliant with the tool is the back fence on the right side not being the same as the fence on the other side. I am not sure if there is a reason for the design but I couldn't figure it out.
Summary: Never owned a Miter saw, and did a lot of research before purchasing this particular make and model. Love everything about it. Solidly built, ease of adjustment and use are outstanding, and dead on accurate right out of the box, with no adjustments necessary. Should last this lifetime and into the next.
Summary: Great saw, high quality. Everything works as promised, two things to note. 1. The blade it comes with is an all purpose blade. If you are planning on working on molding, you'll want to pick up a blade with finer teeth. 2. The package is large and has a ton of styrofoam. I'm happy it helped keep the saw safe during transport, but it's a lot of styrofoam to throw away. (My city does garbage by volume, so it'll take some time to slowly get rid of all of it.
Summary: An important feature was removed by the latest revision of the tool now made in Taiwan. You cannot attach the worklight to this as the connections have been removed. Get an older one made in Mexico and you'll be fine. I found one at a local store and I'm up and running with the very important worklight.
Summary: Best for the price in my opinion. I spent a while doing research and I am glad that I did, this is a well built unit that does exactly what I need. Cuts are straight and precise and it required no tweaking out of the box. Don't be fooled by lasers and lights offered by other brands.. If you need to like up a cut just lower the blade close to the wood and line it up!
Summary: I didn't want a sliding compound miter saw. I have heard about too much flex and potential for misaligned cuts. I didn't need that anyway. I needed a miter saw to cut items to rough length. I use my cabinet saw for the majority of my finish cuts. My only recomendations on the saw would be to cut a zero-clearance plate to replace the yellow plate and add a backboard. Secure everything without running the blade through your new fence and plate.
Summary: I am a basic DIY-er, not building custom cabinets or show piece furniture. I do basic carpentry around the house: framing, window & door moldings, crown moldings. The latter is probably the most complex "cut" I do. This saw came out of the box almost perfectly calibrated for 90°/90° cuts. Not quite perfect but almost.
Summary: I have used my Dewalt miter saw a lot during our home's construction process, and for a variety of craft and hobby applications. This miter saw is well constructed and easy to adjust and to use. Adjusting the angle of the cut is very quick, accurate, and the angle is quickly and easily locked into place with the front lever. I highly recommend this miter saw.
Summary: This was a great buy and could not resist getting a replacement for my older version of the same saw. I sold the old one easily and I had had it for about 10 years. Never had any issues or problems and used the heck out of it. Now for just $100 more I have a new and a new blade.
