Great saw
I bought this about a year ago, it is quality all around. This saw is accurate and makes precise cuts every time. It is easy to use and is a bit on the heavy side but it does the work with ease. I highly recommend this saw.

Disappointed
I'm a huge Dewalt fan and most all my power tools are Dewalt. Purchased the 12" to replace other older miter saw, was really looking forward to this saw for some time. The saw had a few adjustment needed, it did cut square after that but reason I returned the saw was the slider has too much resistance , have to really push to finish the cuts.
I thought I might have a defected saw, but tried another new one out and its the same. Now I'm in the market for another high end saw

I bought DWS780 miter saw 6 years ago. I used it at home on a few projects and it worked great. Today I took it to a job to install base trim. During use turning it to 45 degree cuts the main base attachment broke in half and now the saw can not be used. Dewalt wont cover the repair! I believe it was poor assembly and the single bolt was not torqued to spec. How else can a miter saw base break in half!

I bought this for a specific project and I knew it would be difficult to do on my table saw. This came out of the box fully put together and adjusted. The manual is very clear. I am an intermediate DIY-er but I've learned to buy high quality tools with the features you may not need now but may in the future. There was a great deal of $200 off at my local HI store. This has exceeded my expectations and I am very happy with it. I got the Protocol workstation and a $55 Diablo blade to round out the package. To top it off, I named her Wanda.

Perfect saw for all your needs
After using a Dewalt miter saw that only turned 1 way and didn’t angle I knew I needed an upgrade. I bought this saw and instantly satisfied with its performance. It has Turned things around for me. It has increased my productivity and the cuts are perfect every time. I would nightly recommend this saw for anyone in the contracting profession. It’s versatile from framing to fine wood working.

I. Love. This. Saw.
I named her Hazel because she works hard. My first miter saw was the brand of a big box store. Never could I have imagined how much better a tool this was for a little more money. She is accurate, great features and SOLID! Because of this saw I purchased a table saw and circular saw from DEWALT and am looking at drills and drivers.

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.
