Precise Miter and Bevel Cuts
The LS1016L has an exclusive 4-3/4-inch sliding fence system, with four sliding fences featuring upper and lower fence adjustments for more precise miter and bevel cuts to accommodate a variety of cutting applications. The saw miters 0 degrees to 52 degrees left and 0 to 60 degrees right, with positive stops at 0, 15, 22.5, 31.6, and 45 degrees (left and right). The dual rear-handle bevel lock is easily accessible with adjustments 0 to 45 degrees (left and right), with positive stops at 22.5, 33.9, and 45 degrees (left and right). Precision adjustments are made easier with dual front bevel scales for improved visibility. The easy one-touch (push in & turn) miter lock system is designed for accurate adjustments and increased efficiency. For more precise cuts, a built-in laser indicates the line of cut whether the blade is turning or not, and also includes an on-off switch and micro-adjustments for precise "left-of-blade" or "right-of-blade" cutting.
Ergonomic and Compact Design
In addition to the large cutting capacity, power, and accuracy, the LS1016L offers a range of convenience and ease-of-use features. The LS1016L has less weight and the most compact design in its class, so it's portable and more easily transported. In addition, the patented Four-Steel Rail Sliding System requires two inches less rear space than competitor dual sliding miter saws. The see-through blade guard system provides greater visibility of blade and line of cut, and has a one-step blade change process for increased efficiency. The ergonomic rubberized horizontal D-handle design has a better fit and added comfort, and the large trigger switch is designed for easier operation.
15 AMP Power, Smoother, Higher-Quality Cutting
The LS1016L has a 15 AMP direct gear box motor that never slips, bogs down, or requires maintenance like belt-driven saws. The soft start feature delivers smoother start-ups, and the Electronic Speed Control maintains constant speed under load for smoother, higher-quality cutting.
Best in Class for a Range of Application
The LS1016L is engineered for finish work, remodeling, trim work, and furniture making. It is ideal for a broad range of trades, including finish carpenters, professional woodworkers, case and base installers, cabinet installers, cabinet manufacturers, closet installers, decking and flooring applications, siding installers, stair installers, and general contractors seeking a best-in-class 10-inch dual slide compound miter saw for the jobsite or on the benchtop.
About Makita Miter Saws
Makita's new miter saws are designed with an innovative direct drive gearbox and patented retractable guard system engineered for large vertical cutting capacity—the new LS1016L 10-inch Dual Slide Compound Miter Saw has a crown molding cutting capacity of 6-5/8 inches (vertically nested). In addition, the exclusive six linear ball bearings deliver smooth, solid and adjustment-free "dead-on" accurate cuts. The saw also has a compact design with a patented Four-Steel Rail Sliding System that further increases rigidity to produce superior cuts, as the four steel rails provide less deflection. The four steel rails also enable a more compact rear design than standard two-rail systems. Makita's new miter saws with DXT (Deep and eXact Cutting Technology) deliver a larger cutting capacity and more accuracy combined with a more compact rear design.

I wanted to love this saw. The features are great and the motor/blade are buttery smooth and quiet versus my old DeWalt 12" miter saw. Read morePublished 22 days ago by James

A very good saw. I did have to adjust the bevel and there should be bevel detentes. This saw is the perfect complement to my shopPublished 2 months ago by Wesley J. Smith
