Been using this saw for two years now. Used it to build a 300 square foot cedar deck with aluminum railing. This is a great saw. Square out of the box and easy to use. Its been used to cut lots of 2x4 and other basic cuts for around the house repairs and projects.

Dewalt DW717 is Great Saw
I've used this saw extensively since getting it. It is easy to set up and a breeze to use. Gives clean, precise cuts and has enough travel to easily cut 2x12" boards. Adjustments are intuitive and easily made.

More Accurate than Bosch CM10GD - But Overheats
The evening I received the saw I evaluated it. The left and right fences were found aligned with each other (no visible gaps between straight edge and fence, the upper and lower fence sections aligned with each other (again no visible gaps between straight edge and fence) and the fences nearly perfectly square to the table (again no visible gap). Squareness was checked from one end of the fence to the other on both sides of blade and the entire length was found to be consistent using a precision machinist square. Sweet! I found the lateral movement of the blade acceptable and was able to make a nice clean square on 12” wide board in horizontal mode and equally square on a 4” vertical cut against the fence. Slide worked well but could be more smooth. I will take the accuracy over glass smooth though. Dust collection is horrible, even with shop vac hooked up. My perception is that the Bosch CM10GD collects more dust with its bag alone then the DW717 did with the vacuum attached. The saw was not aligned when I received it but I found it very easily to dial it in accurately. I experienced predicable return to zero bevels and miter in multiple attempts, something the Bosch would not do.

Now the downside. During my hour or so of testing on its first day it was clear something was wrong. There was a constant smell of burning plastic within minutes of use, but I continued the physical evaluation. Day two I called DeWalt tech support. They could not tell me what was normal, but in the end they suggested I to return the saw to place of purchase and order a new one. No other solution offered. My day two tested showed that the metal flange on the motor reaches > 125 degrees F, and the belt pulley reaches 350 degrees F. You bet the saw is going back, before the fire starts. DeWalt, it would have been better if you offered to send me a replacement saw and a call tag to return the defective saw. I own and like DeWalt tools, but don’t make your customers pay for your poor quality control decisions.

Here is hoping that the replacement saw is equally as accurate and not the fire hazard the first one is.

Right out of the box the saw cut perfect angles. Easy to set up.the only complaint is that the packaging could be improved, it doesn5 secure the saw well enough.

Another Great Dewalt Saw.
In the short time I've owned this saw I have been very impressed with the product. I use this saw for home improvement and also some furniture building out of my garage. I have yet to find any negatives but I also highly recommend the Dewalt LED miter saw light. I will continue to buy Dewalt products!

Good saw
I put the Dewalt 60 series 80 tooth blade on this saw, and I get glass smooth cuts. The meters are tight. The sawdust collection isn't good. I end up with sawdust on the table of the saw. I need to constantly clean the sawdust off the table of the saw.

Exactly what I was looking for!
I am extremely happy with this saw and my experience with CPO. The saw is dead on out of the box. This is crucial for someone as meticulous as me. Plus, I don't have to spend the time to adjust it myself. The shipping was fast and FREE! From what I have seen so far, I believe I will get many years of use and will be more than satisfied with the results.

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 120 days.
