Better than its competitors.
This saw surpassed all expectations. I've used it for a little over 1 year on job-sites and it has performed flawlessly. It's accurate. It gets thrown in the back of the truck everyday and still performs as if it were new. I've used it to frame porches, garages, and install thousands of feet of exterior trim. I've owned the DeWalt, Ridgid, and Makita versions of this saw. The Milwaukee is by far the superior saw. Don't waste your money buying anything else.

I am a General Contractor and I just purchased this saw. I have used Hitachi, Makita and DeWalt comparables and this one is my favourite. The digital gauge is a little overkill but positve stops make this saw super accurate (similar to the DeWalt). The makita saws DO NOT hold their accuracy over a long period of use. The stand is not a great design but is very similar to most on the market.

Not sorry I paid the extra bucks...
I am still learning all the uses for this incredible quality tool. Great for trim, great for rough cuts, powerful, precise, well designed for moving left and right when using the angle or miter, comfortable handle. Only one issue - the left gate is non-adjustable. This is a very minor issue and with a little machining, can be rectified with a very slight modification. This has been my all time favorite tool that Milwaukee makes to date. Mated it to the Milwaukee contractor's table. Looks as awesome as it works.

Makes me look like a pro
Doing pine tongue & groove boards for walls.

Cuts angles perfectly and cleanly. Results are awesome.Trim molding looks the same.Never had such a powerfull and precision tool. Worth every dollar.

This saw is the workhorse of the 12 in SCMS's. We switch off between this saw and the DWS780, and I prefer this one. The direct drive provides a smoother start and more consistent cut, and the power is noticeably better in large framing lumber and hardwoods. The digital miter gauge is very handy, as well are the lights, but the bevel adjust is the best in class. The detant override and fine adjust also work very well in correlation with the digital readout.

Please advise differance in miter saws model 6955-80 an 6955-20.

Also, the 6955-80 model has a weight of 65 pounds and a base molding specification of 6.55 inches; the 6955-20 model weighs 55 pounds and has a 6.0 inch base molding specification. Lastly, the 6955-80 model features a dual slide which is not listed on the 6955-20 model.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
