The saw's wide miter capacity--0 to 50 degrees to the left and the right--adds versatility.

In addition, a tall fence supports 5-1/4-inch crown molding nested vertically, as well as 6-1/2-inch base molding set vertically against the fence. This fence slides out of the way easily when it's time to make bevel cuts.

Plus, with hardened steel bevel stops at 0, 33.9, 45 and 48 degrees, this saw delivers versatility and makes finding and setting the most common bevel angles a quick and easy process.

This lightweight compound miter saw weighs just 42 pounds and features a built-in carry handle, so you can move it around the jobsite easily and lift it comfortably when it comes time to stow the saw at the end of the day.

From the Manufacturer

The DW715 is powered by a 15 Amp motor and comes equipped with a 12-inch carbide blade which spins at 4,000 rpm. Accuracy is a critical component for a solid miter saw and the DW715 delivers. The DW715 incorporates an adjustable stainless steel miter detent plate with 11 positive stops for the most common miter cuts. The saw features a miter detent override which allows the user to override the miter stops and adjust to the miter setting desired without the saw slipping into the miter detents while the new precise miter system delivers more repeatable and accurate miter angles. The cam lock miter handle eliminates the need to twist the miter handle to lock in on the miter angle and delivers a quick and solid miter lock. The innovative machined base fence design delivers long term fence straightness by providing additional support to the fence. The DW715 delivers the capacity to cut up to 6-1/2-inch base molding against the fence when mitered to the left and crosscut capacity up to 2 x 8 dimensional lumber.

This is a wonderful saw, very powerful, well engineered and easy to use.
David Borsky
Miter and bevel were perfectly aligned out of the box, which I checked with my triangle and with some test cuts.
I have used this saw for a crown molding project at home so far and it has performed great.

Color Name: Yellow
I have to admit,

I've always been one of those pro carpenters that thought DeWalt saws looked and worked cheaply. Like many of you, I have used every chop saw and dual compound miter saw imaginable. Years later I became a woodshop teacher. When I started, the old teacher before me had an nice new Makita and good old Hitachi stuffed in the back tool storage room and this saw set up prominently out on the shop floor. I decided to leave it there and see what would happen over the course of the school year.

I watched this saw get day in and day out abuse from students who cut too fast, started the saw while touching the work, let the saw run too long, let the saw snap back to its upright position, chopped wood not against the fence, never cleaned the blade or used wicked dull blades all day. I had students using pine and the saw covered in sap that hardened to amber. (hey I can hear you judging me fellas, I had thirty-two inner city kids in these classes [no injuries-knock on wood]. One week I had students blazing away for hours chopping hickory and pecan, leaving the saw hot to the touch.

Long story short: you couldn't find a better field testing environment than a high school shop class. Despite this merciless abuse, this saw cut perfectly accurate. It is loud, and the brake doesn't like the kind of resharpened heavy blades I use, but nonetheless, after school, I made fine furniture with this same saw. I made tight perfect miters with it It could chop cleanly through 12/4 rock maple full of nails on a dull blade (I know all of you are wincing, that's why I used a beater blade)
I used it to chop and cut shoulders on giant 5 in dovetails in 8/4 Bubinga. or trimming off a 64th of the same without it drifting away...always leaving my work dead on 90 degrees.

Color Name: Yellow
I'm not a professional, I'm just a homeowner who appreciates quality tools, but it seems they got all the details right on this saw. Miter and bevel were perfectly aligned out of the box, which I checked with my triangle and with some test cuts. Getting it out of the box was easy too, thanks to the carrying handle on the saw head which is very solid and close to the center of balance. (Usually with big items like this you have to figure out how to get your hands underneath it and then hold the box down while you get it out.) The locking pin which keeps the saw head down when you're carrying it can be slid in and out easily but has no problem supporting the weight, while the spring that raises the head prevents the pin from sliding out accidentally. There are also good hand holds on each side of the base with rounded edges so they don't dig into your hands.

Bevel stops at 0 and 45 degrees make it easy to switch between common angles, but can be slid back after loosening a screw to allow a few more degrees either way when you need to compensate for other cuts that were a little off (made by someone else, of course). There's also a flip-out stop for 33.9 degree bevel which is also solidly made. The bevel locking knob-thing is nice and big, making it easy to grip and turn. The adjustable fence can be quickly adjusted with a single knob, but is still very sturdy when tightened down.

Miter adjustment is rock solid. The quick detents have no wiggle room at all, and the detent override makes it easy to adjust to any angle. The simple push-down miter lock is easy to use, and once locked I was unable to force it slip to either side.

The dust bag collects a bit over half of the sawdust, and as a result fills up pretty quickly.

Color Name: Yellow Verified Purchase
I purchased this saw in November 2012, right before Amazon and DeWalt updated their websites to reflect that this is now a DW715 "Type 3"--which means they've altered the design. This redesign has a major negative consequence for the user: the saw is not compatible with ANY DeWalt Laser or LED worklight. Unless you can find a third-party laser to rig onto this saw, you will have no visual indicator of where it will cut before the blade hits your material.

I got lucky--I went to my local Lowes on March 2 2013, and found a single "Type 2" DW715 in stock. I quickly bought it, returned the Type 3 I bought on Amazon, and was able to attach the LED worklight no problem. If you want to find a Type 2 at your local store, it's easy to tell the difference between the boxes. The box for a Type 2 is completely yellow, with black lettering. It also says that it's compatible with DeWalt Laser and LED worklight systems. The box for a Type 3 has a black top, and the side panels of the box are mostly yellow, with a black section near the top. It has no language about a Laser or LED worklight.

The DW715 is a great saw. I had to make minor adjustments to the miter and bevel angles when I first set it up, but I expected that. Now, it cuts perfectly. However, it's just not worth it (to me) to pay the same amount of money for a crippled saw that no longer supports visual indicators. If you can find a Type 2, go for it...I'm glad I did. But since Amazon only ships Type 3, if you can't find a Type 2 in your local store, I'd pass and look for a model that at least supports a laser.
