  • Summary: Excellent saw, better than other makes used in the past. 12 inch blade allows one to do thicker material trhan 10 inch. Typical good Makita quality.

Great Saw

  • Summary: I ordered the LS1214L from Grizzly to replace a DeWalt DW716 that I returned and it is super nice. I was hesitant about mail-ordering it b/c of a few reviews about damage during shipping so I checked everything out before signing for the delivery and I'm glad I did.

Good quality saw

Grand House "Grand House", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this saw several months ago and love it. The base is true and accurate. The lazer works ok however it doesn't show up in any sunlight. Makita should definately beef up the intensity on it. It weighs a ton, but so does every other 12" saw on the market.

  • Summary: I haven't used the Makita enough to really give it a workout, but it is far and away the best built sliding miter saw!! It doesn't have the scary looking stamped metal pieces that all of the other sliding miters have. I have used it and do like the soft start feature.

Apples to apples

  • Summary: I researched 12" sliders for several weeks. I read the reviews from several web sites, borrowed a saw to test, went to the stores to see them in person, asked my friends who are brand loyal. Each saw had their strong points, but it comes down to this - What will you primarily us the saw for?
