Great saw does all the little things very quickly
I bought this saw as an addition we now have two. We were using the other for so many different things we would sometimes create a line to use it.

Great saw, does most things very well
Everybody has their own preferences for tools and for me, it's what feels right is the one I go with. Like golf equipment or ski's its just a matter what makes you comfortable. The soft start motor is a great feature, the easy laser adjustment from one side of the kerf to the other is handy. The handle is comfortable for both left or right operations and the safety button doesnt get in the way. I have owned many miter saws and wanted to replace an old Mikita LS1013 so I bought a Bosch glide saw. Besides weighing a ton it put a bevel on miter cuts due to a warped table according to Bosch service, they replaced it with a new one, that one would not cut a 90º or 45º because the fence is not really adjustable, they tried to shim it but it was still off. Returned it and bought the Mikita which needed no adjustments other than the laser out of the box. I like it a lo.

A+++ shipping speed, Best miter saw.
I pick and choose my tools after lots of research and Im very glad i went with this saw. I looked at all the utube videos i could find and took a leap of faith. Ill admit i am a little biased tward Makita and Milwaukee but i still do like the Dewalt, Bosch and some of the other large saw making companies. Matter of fact despite having mostly Makita and Milwaukee I was strongly considering the dewalt 12" miter saw (cant remember the model #) anyways i went with my gut and the fact that i really dont need a 12" saw and this 10" covers alot of ground and its in a smaller package. Short and long of it. The saw runs and operates like a dream.

Good - BUT
Generally I'd say good design, but the left fence was out of adjustment and did not line up with the lower fence area. The design offers no way easy way to fix this problem - removing the upper fence and using shim stock the upper fence surface can be moved out to be co-planer with the lower fence area. Once that is done (you'll need a micrometer and/or a caliper) everything lined up fine.
It would be nice if the laser line worked on both sides of the blade at the same time. If you have it setup for the left side and then unscrew a knob and move the laser to the right there's a strong possibility that when you move it back to the left the alignment will be off and you'll have to go to the manual to re-adjust.
Even with a dust extractor / shop vacuum attached the dust collection is poor.
My recommendation - if you want a dead-on accurate miter saw that's a joy to use, buy a Kapex if you can afford it.
For the money I would recommend to a friend as long as he/she was willing to deal with the above.

Pros
Easy To Use
Seems like they thought of everything
This saw is very nice for the price point. It has all kinds of features and it seems like they really thought it thru when designing it. The only thing that missing is, it didn't come with any outriggers. I have my own though. You can lock both slides individually. The double bevel is easily controlled. and the mitre lock is pretty handy as well.

Pros
Easy To Use
so far so good
Good overall and can do almost anything you need from a miter saw.

Its a very versatile miter saw.

It's "vise" is actually handy and not always in the way. It's one of the few ones I didn't want to just immediately throw away.

It's trigger safety does its job without being super annoying and I like that it has the horizontal handle vs the vertical style.

Lighter than its competition(dual bevel sliders under $500)

Makes cuts some of its competition can't (60° miter to the right) however rare that would be used.

Direct drive motor means less maintenance and better precision vs belt driven

Has a depth stop that can be used for making simple dados like a radial arm saw (a lot of other brands don't bother with that)

It actually comes with a pretty good 60 tooth blade

A lot of well thought out features.

Its dust collection even with a vacuum is just OK at best.

Its laser is fine for giving you a general idea of where the blade is. I usually just leave the laser off because I find its more distracting than helpful.

Overall I chose this saw over Dewalt, Bosch etc because its lighter, more precise, has more features and costs less while still giving me everything I need in a miter saw.

Awesome saw - Lousy instructions
Once I figured out how to calibrate the saw (instructions & diagrams not much help). It produced dead-on accurate and smooth cuts. A pleasure to use.

More then I expected..
I had a hard time letting go of my Makita LS1013FL. I have owned the saw for 3 years and I bonded with it, that's how good that saw was. Then, then came along the LS1016. At first I was sceptical, the quality, fit and overall apearance was what I thought at the time way different then my 1013. I eyed this saw for a year and one day a wood floor installer had one on a job site and he let me have a go at it doing some crown molding, I purchased one the next day. The floor installer told me he works his saw to the max and has not had one issue. I took a triangular tool along with my Wixley digital angle display to the saw and it was dead on, even he was suprised. His saw gets thrown around daily from job site to job site then has to cut Oak Hardwood Flooring non stop through the day and as he say's it has never skipped a beat. I could not have asked for a better reveiw and the saw convinced me that it was time to let go of my 1013. Boy am I glad I ever did. I purchased a new one and after just a few of my own minor tweaks it has been above my expectatations compared to my old 1013. It is lighter but yet seems stronger and much smoother operation overall. I do allot of custom trim work and so far this saw is 100% accurate. I have it sitting on the WST01 Makita work station which is a great addition to this saw if your someone like me who is very mobile.

I love this saw
I bought this reconditioned, it didn't come with a blade wrench and the manual was a copied one but other than that I love this product and price was unbeatable!

Pros
Easy To Use
Not Quite as "like New" as expected
first off, I received the saw within 24 hrs of my order. Pretty impressed with CPO there.
However, the saw was a little more banged up than I expected. It appeared that the prior user had used a 12" blade as there was a definite grove cut in the base below the cut table. The saw also still has saw dust in and on it. There were also some various dents and scratches.

It seems powerful enough. I don't have another of the same model to compare it to, but it does seem to bog down, wobble and burn on some cuts.

It wasn't bad enough for me to go through the trouble of disassembling it and shipping it back.

Maybe my hopes were a little too high.

Scott The Toolman on Jan 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, slows to a stop very quickly.
Do I need the laser model for making simple cuts?
Mostly 90 and 45 degree.
jim on Aug 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Having the laser system would make the bevel cuts easier to see before making the cut, but the laser is not required to make them.

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.
