MAKITA 12-inch (15-Amp) Dual-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw with Laser, Electric Brake, Dust Bag (120V)

Model # LS1219L|Store SKU # 1001196637

Overview

Model # LS1219L Store SKU # 1001196637

The Makita 12" Dual-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw with Laser (model LS1219L) combines capacity, accuracy and efficient dust extraction in a more compact size, with a unique 2-Steel Rail Sliding System that offers a reduced footprint for operation flush against a wall. The innovative direct-drive gearbox and guard system is engineered for increased vertical cutting capacity of baseboard (6-3/4") and crown molding (8" nested). It will also make 15" crosscuts at 90 degrees. The bevel lock is located in the front of the saw for easy access and quick adjustments from 0° to 48° (left and right). Powered by a 15 AMP direct drive motor with soft start and electric brake. Direct drive enables smoother start-ups and consistent, constant power with no belts to slip or replace. Electronic speed control maintains constant speed under load for smoother cutting. The built-in laser indicates the line-of-cut whether the blade is turning or and offers micro-adjustments for more precise cutting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makita Saw 12 Inch. Great saw! Picked this up for hobbies and it’s a beast cuts like butter. Set up was easy it’s not too heavy. I do suggest getting the stand as well and you’ll be set. The zero clearance is a great addition I can tuck it right back against the wall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Saw Great saw for making accurate miter cuts. All angles seem to be dead on. I have not observed any problems related to the forward slides as some reviews on other sites have eluded to. The forward slide allows the placement closer to the shop wall. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five was due to the laser line. Almost impossible to get dead on, but then I have been able to judge and compensate for it not being dead on. I have used the Dewalt saw with the shadow light which is better, but the I replaced a Dewalt 12" for other issues with that saw. Overall, this is the best miter saw with maybe the Festool but the price made it a easy choice.

Very nicely made saw, fit and finish is excellent but was unable saw where it would cut the same on a plunge and a sliding cut while both methods would make a concave cut. I was certainly disappointed since it is such a nicely made saw.

This saw is built very well, many great features, awesome dust collection. Has soft start which is actually a very nice thing to have... Quality wise I think it's the best miter saw I have ever seen, but there's one drawback - the weight, this tool is heavy as f#@k, I'm thinking about buying some kind of saw stand with wheels, but if you buying it for the shop then no worries. Sliding rail design does help save some space as we are able to put saw close to the wall.

Makita, are there any plans to upgrade the detent plate from aluminum to steel? The poorly made detent plate is the only thing keeping me from ordering this, as over time play will develop in the detent slots.
Asked by: spencer
Detent plate has been okay. Watch https://www.makitatools.com/ should you desire something else more 'robust'.

I keep seeing that this saw was discontinued a few years ago, but it is available at HD and does not list it as discontinued on the Makita website. Has it been discontinued previously and this is a new version or are these older discontinued models?
Asked by: Michael
I have seen the same thing about being discontinued. I purchased it online at HD in March and had it shipped to the store. It took about 10 days to get it to my local store.
