Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

Those axial glide models were the smoothest gliding miter saws we’d ever seen. Even five years after its initial launch, I still haven’t used a smoother saw.
If you are in need of a reliable miter saw that can handle just about anything you could possibly throw at it, but don’t want to sacrifice comfort or ease of use, this saw might be for you.
It’s sturdy, reliable, and you can rest assured that it’s built to last as long as you maintain it in good condition.
Excellent control over cuts and movement for difficult angles

What reviewers didn't like

When making bevel cuts at 45 degrees though, I did notice some blade wobble.
