Large Cutting Capacity, Increased Accuracy
The LS1016L has an innovative direct drive gearbox and patented retractable guard system engineered for increased vertical cutting capacity. At 6-5/8 inches, the LS1016L has the largest crown molding cutting capacity (vertically nested) in its class. The patented retractable rear guard also provides the LS1016L with 4-3/4-inch baseboard cutting capacity (vertical), and a 12-inch capacity at 90 degrees. In addition, the exclusive six linear ball bearings deliver smooth, solid and adjustment-free "dead-on" accurate cuts. The saw also has a patented Four-Steel Rail Sliding System that further increases rigidity to produce superior cuts, as the four steel rails provide less deflection. The result is a larger cutting capacity and more accuracy.

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.

So far I'm very happy with the saw.
chris
They hadn't ever had any issues with it before so they figured it must just be a random bad saw.
Mark
The fence was a liitle off right out of the box, but was easy to adjust.

I just got this saw...

I was very nervous making a large purchase like this without ever seeing this new model in person, but I like the original model so much that I decided it was safe to trust Makita.

They did not let me down.

It's way too early to give a real review, but since there aren't any here yet I thought somebody else in my position could use at least a general "it's great" to go on before spending the money.

My first impression is a good one. I'm very, actually VERY impressed.

I had one real concern the first time I used it - the upper slides do not glide very smoothly - hard to describe, but they sort of rumble like there's something stuck in the roller bearings.

I called Makita about this and they immediately knew what I was talking about, and assured me it's normal for this saw and will go away soon when the bearings are broken in. I found that a bit odd, but they sounded sincere, so I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt.

Other than that one point that I'm going to keep a close eye on, I feel comfortable saying that if you're like me, going out on a limb and buying this new model, I think you're going to be pleasantly surprised when it arrives.

For the rest of this week I'm going to try to list anything I don't absolutely love about it, but from what I see so far, that's going to be a very short list.

If I do find any flaws I'll try to update my review immediately.

**** trouble in paradise

First, the upper bearings DO operate more smoothly now, but they're still not perfect. At least they're trending in the right direction. So I'm still giving Makita the benefit of the doubt here... but really, should you have to wait weeks to break a $500+ saw in?

Verified Purchase
The LS1016 is an updated 10" dual bevel slider with some notable improvements over the venerable LS1013 model.

Makita's bevel gear drive now has intermediate reduction gears which raise the motor housing higher above the saw blade arbor than the 1013 and also reduces the saw blade speed down to 3200 rpm. Because of the higher motor location, the critical right tilt of the bevel (45 degrees) allows sawing 1 11/16" high boards an improvement over 1 1/4" for the LS1013. The left 45 bevel capacity increases also to 2 3/8". I like the addition of a double handled bevel lock lever making it easy to operate regardless of which side of the saw I am approaching this control (behind the saw) from.

Most competitors seem to be stuck on using a drive belt to move the saw motor away from the arbor in order to allow dual bevel. This is my second Makita dual bevel slider and both have had excellent power and torque cutting through all hard and soft woods as well as handling lumber which occasionally has internal stresses bind on the blade (the only time that I really notice the full use of the torque available from any saw.) Makita's bevel and spur gear train delivers without any hesitation AND does that while delivering a final blade speed of 3200 rpm. The 1013 was 3700 rpm, all of the competitive saws seem to have blade speeds of 4700 up through 5200 rpm. I don't know if the higher spped is to lower the stress on the drive belt, but it definitely increases the screaming of a high speed blade both when spun up and cutting through wood. For a 10 inch this is my quietest saw yet. Also worth mention is that the soft start motor is so effective I can barely detect any recoil when it starts up yet the motor is at full speed ready to cut without causing any wait on my part.

Verified Purchase
This is my first sliding mitre saw, I've owned two basic mitre saws before, both of them cheap units, one from Sears (Craftsman) and one from Canadian Tire (Mastercraft). I'm in Ottawa Ontario, purchased this saw through Amazon and imported it as it is not available in Canada until late 2009. I wanted a 10" saw since I already own some 10" blades, and 12" blades are more expensive.

I'm not a professional contractor, more of a serious DIY-er. So far this year I've installed hardwood and new baseboard and casings throughout the main floor of our house, and I'm now using this LS1016L to complete a two level 23x21 foot deck with lots of angles and stairs out back. I thought it was high time I get myself a good quality saw with a reasonable cutting capacity. The LS1016L seemed to fit the bill.

I gave this saw 4/5 stars, let's get the bad news out of the way first.

Issue #1 - TOP RAIL BEARING SMOOTHNESS

After reading how others had not been pleased with the smoothness of the upper rail travel, this was the first thing I checked when I unboxed the saw. Yep, the bearing travel is a little rough, for sure, not nearly as smooth as the lower rails. I found that loosening and re-tightening the cap on the back of the top rails eliminated most of this roughness almost immediately. This is easy to do:

1.Pull the saw all the way forward and lock the lower rails, then push the saw back and lock the upper rails.
2.Using a 3mm Allen Wrench, loosen the set screws in the top of the rail cap about 1 turn each.
3.Wiggle the cap until it feels loose then tighten the set screws being careful not to torque the cap and load the rails.

This cured the majority of the bearing roughness right away.
