As usual Dewalt comes thru. This saw replaced my old miter saw and functions the same. Great flexibility power and accuracy. Glad I trusted them.

Consolidated to one saw
Space limitations forced me to consolidate tools for best use of space available. I already had the chop saw stand so there was no decision involved there. Given the short time that I have had the saw, this seems to be the right decision. Hated giving up my old Dewalt radial arm saw for the 1980's.

I replaced an older 10” compound miter saw with this Dewalt. The increase in versatility is significant. I’m sorry I didn’t switch sooner.

Great saw, great design for crown molding.
This is a great saw, designed for the bigger jobs as you're not going to want to move this around a lot for the smaller stuff. Recommend a wheeled miter saw stand as this thing is on the heavy side as you'd expect for a sliding 12". Accurate out of the box, packaged well for shipment. Cutting capacity nice for the taller crown. Features really well thought out. Older Dewalt saw has lasted a long time, hope this does they same.

I would recommend this saw. I do cabinet work and this saw can be set to cut perfect angles so I get straight tights joints.

Good saw
The Saw was easy to setup and went right into the work table I had for the old Skilsaw I had which was a great surprise. I have used it for a few weeks and the saw is powerful and does everything I ask it to do. I did change out the blade as I had a better on on the old saw and a extra one hanging in on the rack which is one reason I got the 12 inch saw.

Is this saw double bevel?
Dennis B on Feb 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Those numbers are for the miter settings. I will bevel 45 degrees left and right. Slightly more if you override the stop.
Does this saw have a light?
A shopper on Nov 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No light but its's an awesome, powerful saw. I believe there are after market lights you can install on the Dewalt.
Do the saws get calibrated from the factory?
Jeremiah G on May 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: the saws are calibrated. It's a good idea to recheck it after you've used it for awhile. Loading and relocating can affect your calibration. I've had mine for over a year and absolutely love my Dewalt. Great deal from CPO!!!

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.
