Great saw
It’s a real money maker. I adjusted it square and plum when I got it and it’s holding true and it gets bounced around in my pickup on the dirt roads

Not for professionals
Would not recommend this tool. I purchased this tool 6-5-18 from Tyler tool. Saw performed well for installing trim on three custom homes then steadily failed to make accurate cuts . The ball bearings in the sliding rail system i believe are not sturdy enough to maintain a plumb cut through wood. today after much frustration with this saw i purchased the Hitachi compound miter saw from Tyler tool today 2-7-19. I thought this lightweight tool would be my savior but it was a mistake. I have owned numerous miter saws in my 38 years of carpentry and own many Makita tools.

Cuts good but base is small
The saw cuts smooth, but the base is too small for a 12" slide. I won't be using this saw for what I intended it for.

great saw
I bought this saw to do finish work on a 6 story apartment complex. Packing up and down stairs every day I didn't want to use my bigger heavy saw. 30 lbs plus a stand plus it cuts very nice only downside is it only cuts angles one direction, but I can work around that
