Summary: I am just a DIY homeowner. I have pretty much every power tool that Milwaukee makes. And though they are all great....this one is my favorite. The quality of this saw is second to none. If your in the market for a miter saw, don't waste your money on any other brands. Buy this. Buy it now!
Summary: I bought this saw to replace an old Sears saw that is no longer available. What a saw! It needed no adjustments straight out of the box. The work lights are great. The dust collection is so-so but I expected that. You can't go wrong with this saw.
Summary: I have only owned this saw for a couple of days now but what a HUGE difference! I replaced an 11-year old Craftsman 12-inch that I had used up but just didn't realize it. As others have said, everything was set and ready right out of the box. I cut drawer pieces last night for a couple of drawers I need to redo in our kitchen. I am also learning how to cut dovetails and the one thing I knew I needed were perfect cross cuts to begin with.
Summary: I bought this saw on Amazon about 4 months ago and would say it is an awesome saw. Square and ready to use right out of the box. I am not an ametuer and this is not my first rodeo so I feel like I am knowledgable and objective. I would have given this saw a 5 if not for two things. The first would be the heft... this saw is heavey and a bit clunky to move around. In a shop situation were it is stationary you'll be fine.
Summary: Very nice saw. I don't need lasers, that's a gimmick IMO, but I do wish it came with clamps. I seldom use them, but every once in a while... So over all a very good saw, dust is pretty well managed. It's easy to adjust and set up. It has nice handles on it if you need to move it, it has integrated lights (no light fixtures hanging over the side in the way), the standard blade is OK, it has a brake and the power seems to be pretty good.
Excerpt: After 10 years of reliable service, I decided to update my Miter Saw station (i.e. bench with a single bevel DeWalt miter saw sitting on top). My decision was based my son now having a workshop where I could “will” him tools which could stimulate his interest in woodworking. This would give me a good excuse to upgrade to a miter saw which has been designed to capture the saw dust from the cut.
Summary: I "upgraded" to this saw from a dual laser porter cable twin laser 12" saw (which doesn't seem to be in production any longer). This saw is nicer from a precision point of view (the digital angle readout works really really well), but I miss not having the dual lasers showing me both sides of where the kerf will fall. Overall a great saw, that could be an awesome saw if it had at least one laser (and two would make it perfect).
Summary: I really am in love with this saw. I ditched my old DeWalt and have no regrets. The saw was perfectly aligned right out of the box, and the digital Miter gauge is very accurate too. In general, the saw is very well engineered and very well made. Only regret - I should have bought the Milwaukee 6955 Sliding compound miter saw. Otherwise, this saw really is a dream machine and worth every cent !
Summary: I have only had this saw about a month. It is probably the best saw on the market in this price range. It is so smooth in every aspect. I like the work lights real well and the digital miter readout is a plus. I really like the bevel adjustment. The bevel adjustment is very easy to use. I mounted this on a new Bosch T4B gravity stand and am very happy so far.
