Excellent machine!
First use was a 10x14 gambrel shed/barn with a home-made window. Made cutting roof and window angles completely effortless. The free stand is almost as great and important as the saw--easy storage & setup, very sturdy, extendable arms on the ends make cutting long pieces a breeze. These two together are just outstanding- don't know anything they could have done better. The light that casts a shadow of the blade on the work is SUPER. I think this is better than the laser systems I've seen for precisely locating cuts. One of my best-ever tool buys with the stand thrown in.

Beware of CPO advertising comparisons
The $210 savings over a regular retail price is not a true comparison for a reconditioned saw. What they don't tell you is that the reconditioned machine does not include a blade for some reason. Buying reconditioned looks like a good deal over new, but when you end up having to buy a blade and the shortened warranty, I'd stick with buying new.

Great Saw, Upgrade from earlier models
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.

The saw's LED system makes cutting door casing trim easier and faster. This projects the blades curf on the work material better than Dewalt's older laser system. While speeding the cutting process, it also eliminates adjustments when changing blades.

In addition to giving good miter service, it cuts 2x4s and larger quickly for those projects that always need dimensional lumber.

A very good tool.
I've only begun to learn all this tool's capabilities. I use it with the DeWalt stand which I also highly recommend. It's extremely well designed. I'm very happy with both purchases.

Great Product and Super Service from CPO
This Saw has improve 75% from the previous model although I"m still trying to get use to the XPS light, is not really that accurate but at least it serves as a light and is very convenient at times. Overall I am very pleased with this saw and would recommend it to anyone that is serious about finish carpentry.

Great Product: Delivered As Promised.
Overall a great product. The only issue I have found is that you have to remove part of the guide and add a peice of wood in order to put a 45 deg angle on a 1x12. Bottom line is that this is a great piece of equipment and I will be making future purchases from CPO.

Sensational Mtre Saw!!!
Bought this Dewalt Mitre Saw for my son who just got back from 9 months in Afghanistan leading a SEAL platoon. I went to his home to help him set up his woodworking shop in the garage of the house he just rented and this saw was sensational. We were able to easily cut the legs for his work bench and had to cut blocks and shims for his table saw/router table combination, and it was super easy. Great, great, great.

Dewalt DWS780R Refurbished
Great saw in like-new refurbished condition. Will use in home workshop for woodworking.

By the time I bought a blade for it, it cost almost as much as a brand-new saw. I overlooked that the blade was not included in the description.

What is the big difference between the 780 and the cheaper 782?
ziggy on Sep 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I just called DeWalt. The 780 has the lighting system built-in, the 782 does not. Also, some retailers include the $199 stand bundled with the 780.
I am considering purchasing a 12" Dewalt mitre saw, MODEL (#DEWNDWS780). Could you tell me what "DEWN" that precedes "DWS780" stands for? "Thank You"
Scott on Jun 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have no idea unless it is a specific model designation. GREAT Saw! but
would recommend buying the cart that comes with it or waiting until the
cart is free. Saw is very large and takes up a lot of space, but
exceptional
can you add laser beam to dewalt DWS 780 or recommend another saw
Rick on Mar 4, 2013
BEST ANSWER: why would you want to? The shadow system shows up even in direct sun as I recently found. the shadow system is always indicating blade location, while lasers are independent from blade and must be readjusted for each blade.

Are you offering this saw with the free heavy duty stand with purchase still?
N on May 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We are not currently offering the free stand with miter saw purchase promotion.
Can the depth of the cut be adjusted to stop and stay at that depth of cut. I want to be able to make a mortise. The older model of this saw was able to do this, will the dws780 also be able to do the same?
If it will, thats the saw for me.
Michael on Jan 16, 2015

I am still trying to find out if I order this saw can I get the DWX726 stand instead of the statioary one offered since the price is the same?

DON on Oct 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The current promotion can only be used with the folding stand.
What is the difference between a Double Bevel Sliding Miter Saw and a Dual Bevel Sliding Miter Saw?
David on Sep 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Double Bevel and Dual Bevel is the same,just different terminology.
Just bought the DWS780 because it is considered to be Dewalt's best and newest miter saw and I have always trusted Dewalt's quality. The truth is, I never would have spent $600 on this saw if the $200 stand did not come with it. I have not used the saw yet but I am finding that the glider feels very smooth. Is that because i am not cutting wood with it or did i just get a saw that was made better than many others are complaining about? The saw I was going to buy was the 716, 12" without the slider for $349. I paid $600 for the slider but if the slider is an issue, maybe it needs to go back to the store. Any ideas if corrections have been made to this saw gliding system or am I just lucky?
Bob on Sep 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Please contact the manufacturer direct at 1-800-433-9258 for technical assistance.
Are you shipping type 1 (made in Mexico) or type 20 (made in Tiawan) ?
Glass on Jul 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The DWS780 type is printed on the saw, it is no longer printed on the outside of the box. I know from previous orders that I have placed with customers, that the type was 20
