Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good with a few drawbacks Overall it’s a nice saw, easy to use. The only draw backs are that there is a safety trigger you have to engage (and keep engaged) on the handle in order for the blade to start. I find you don’t get a good hold on the handle because of this and once the blade starts it sort of kicks up from the power. Not a huge issue just annoying. Also there’s extender arms that you can attach for longer pieces of wood but they’re so short it’s a bit of a joke. Saw is big and awkward to move but overall it’s pretty good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Exactly what I was hoping for. Have used it a lot the last month and no disappointments. Very sturdy, on the heavier side but If you’re just using it in your home shop and not planning on packing it around, it’s great. All the features work as described. Couldn’t beat the sale price at the time so I bought this model. All in all a great product and would recommend for any wood worker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dewalt Compund 12” mitre saw Amazing saw, very precise cuts, is on the heavier side for a compound saw but still worth the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great saw needs a laser sight Saw is great. Only thing that keeps it from a 5 star is that it didn’t come with a laser sight
