Great Saw, Upgrade from earlier models

nmtechi, CPO
24 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Buying factory refurbished, saving $100.00 and getting the saw system I wanted makes for a good day. This unit is replacing a radial arm saw and a miter saw, while taking up less space. This makes my garage workshop more productive and parking my wife's car easier. I combined the tool with Dewalt's rolling saw stand and got a package that only takes up about 2x2 feet of floor but can be moved around for use with ease.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Cutting Speed, Good Blade Locator Led, Good Design, Powerful, Safe

Very well made saw.

  • Excerpt: I think the saw is put together and operates very well. The optional stand that is made for the saw is a must in my opinion. It makes it very user friendly for one person operation.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Cutting Speed, Good Design, Great Blade, Long Run Time, Powerful, Safe

Nice saw

Dan, CPO
5 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I upgraded from a 10 inch Dewalt compound miter saw to this Dewalt dws780. My first impression when I pulled it out of the box is, it's a big saw. I was laying 5"x 3/4" hardwood flooring and this saw had no problem handling the task at hand. The LED light is dead on accurate. The blade had no problem cutting the flooring, I did notice a lot of saw dust on the floor and noticed two problems with that.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Design, Powerful, Safe
  • Cons: Not A Cheap Saw

  • Excerpt: Great price on this saw. I have been looking for awhile at these saws. Looked bran new to be a recondition. I have used a 12" DE Walt miter for over 15 years with no issues and love it, never has let me down. I sold it to buy this one, had no problems finding a buyer.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Cutting Speed, Good Design, Great Blade, It's A Dewalt Quality, Long Run Time, Powerful, Safe

Good saw for the money

E Vick, Amazon
17 February 2013
  • Summary: In reference to other's comments: There is really no such sliding saw that has zero head deflection if pressed hard enough. Learn to use the saw with finesse and don't force it. It works just fine. For perfect stability get a radial arm saw or a saw buck. Every tool has its little quirks but this one has very few. The good: 16" cross cut. Thumb lock works great. Easy to adjust the miter detentes to dial them in perfectly. Power! Pretty smooth glide. Nice light.

Nice saw, but has flaws

aeb430, Amazon
17 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this saw to use when installing hardwood floors in our house. I had researched a number of saws and chose the DWS780 because of other reviews, previous experience with Dewalt tools and the shadow line feature. Reviews of many other saws either disliked either the lack of a laser or inaccuracy of the laser. The shadow line on the DWS780 is phenomenal. Without a doubt, it is my favorite feature.

BIG Dissapointment...

R. Carter "musician, carpenter", Amazon
4 December 2012
  • Summary: I was pretty excited to get this saw as I have been mulling over a SCMS for months now. I was originally going to get a 10" and couldn't decide on which one. The Dewalts were always more expensive at the places I was looking so I didn't really give them a second look. Then I saw this one on amazon... a 12" for the same price as some of the other 10" saws I was looking at (makita, bosch) and so I took the plunge.
