What experts liked
A stellar tool with a great range of options and phenomenal accuracy.
- BestReviews
If you are looking for a good saw with precise accuracy, one which is durable, has a high capacity for different angle cuts, and has a hassle-free operation that can be used for flimsy or robust tasks, you can’t go wrong with the DEWALT DWS780
- Miter Saw Reviews
It includes so many convenient features like CUTLINE LED light, depth stop, bevel angle stops, miter angle detents, tall fences and easy accuracy adjustments.
- Her Tool Belt
The DeWALT 12-inch Double Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw makes precise and accurate cuts, and is durable enough for heavier work, with a 56-pound frame.
- Miter Saw Review
You could spend more but in my opinion this saw is capable of the finest cuts you’ll need to make especially if you upgrade from the 60-tooth to an 80-tooth or higher count blade.
- Woodworkers Guild of America
What experts didn't like
Steep price. On the heavier side.
- BestReviews
The dust collection on this saw is much less than stellar.
- Her Tool Belt
The saw doesn’t come with extension supports but a good work support stand is available from Dewalt
- Woodworkers Guild of America
