Great unit. But!
This was the first and only DeWalt product I ever owned on a referral from a fellow Pro woodworker.
I purchased this saw in October, 2018 but wasn't able to really check it until February, 2019. Being a high end custom woodworker precision cuts are the key to everything including material waste. Unfortunately my cuts were coming out 1/16+" to short. My not be bad for some but for what I do it's critical.
After researching the unit I found it had a blade had a run out of .0630 at 5 1/2" from the center of the blade and that's not good. I'm thinking a machining flaw in the arbor.
So, it had been 90 from date of purchase and I figured I needed to contact DeWalt to let them know and find out what they wanted to do while also letting them know I needed to keep the job going as to not upset a customer.
First, under know circumstances were they going to send a replacement.

Second, the service center is 40+ miles away from my home and would take a month to repair and have ready for pickup... Hummmmmm. wonder why??

And third, this one got to me pretty good. The tech could not even tell me what DeWalt's tolerances were for blade run out. That's just sad in my mind. Your a trained service tech but can't answer questions about your product.
So back to Home Depot with a big hope in my mind and to at least exchange it.

And yes they did.. The replacement is actually quieter and smoother. All settings were spot on from the factory. Sooo, I'm pleased but I will most likely never purchase another DeWalt tool. Which sticks, because I've been looking at and researching the mobile none cordless table saw.

Had this saw for probably 10 years, bought another one just like it 3 years ago to keep in the trailer and this one in the shop. The second one I bought, I had it delivered to the job site. Broke it out of the box and went to cutting trim as soon as I got it. What a great saw.

I’ve had my miter saw for about three years now, and it’s still plugging right along with no problems. I have yet to find a job it can’t handle.

Excellent Compound Miter Saw
I have been using this saw for 3 months now and have been very happy with the results. It creates very accurate cuts with and is easy to adjust when switching to different angles. The fence is very sturdy and large enough to hold most materials. If you are doing trim work, I highly recommend investing in the crown stops that are available for this model. Overall, I feel like this is a very high quality product.
