Precise Miter and Bevel Cuts
The LS1216L has an exclusive 5-1/2" tall 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° to 52° left and 0° to 60° right, with positive stops at 0°, 15°, 22.5°, 31.6°, and 45° (left and right). The dual rear-handle bevel lock is easily accessible with adjustments 0° to 45° (left and right), with positive stops at 0°, 22.5°, 33.9°, and 45° (left and right). Precision adjustments are made easier with dual front bevel scales for improved visibility. The easy one-touch (push in and 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 microadjustments for precise "left-of-blade" or "right-of-blade" cutting.
In addition to the large cutting capacity, power, and accuracy, the LS1216L offers a range of conveniences and ease-of-use features. The LS1216L has a patented 4-Steel Rail Sliding System that requires 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 for Smoother, Higher-Quality Cutting
The LS1216L 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 startups, and the Electronic Speed Control maintains constant speed under load for smoother, higher-quality cutting. The LS1216LX includes the Makita Jobsite Miter Saw Stand. The stand adjusts to five positions with a spring-loaded mechanism for quick and easy setups in seconds. It also includes a large platform base and 9' material support extensions with feed roller to support long crown molding. The stand is equipped with a large rubberized handle and solid rubber 12" wheels for easy jobsite portability.
Best in Class for a Range of Applications
The LS1216LX is engineered for precision tasks in woodworking shops, as well as for cutting large materials like 4" x 16" beams and wide boards up to 15". It is ideal for a broad range of tradespeople, including finish carpenters, professional woodworkers, case and base installers, cabinet installers, cabinet manufacturers, closet installers, decking and flooring professionals, siding installers, stair installers, and general contractors seeking a best-in-class 12" dual slide compound miter saw and stand for the jobsite or high-production/manufacturing setting.

This is a great piece of equipment, but unfortunately it did not come from the seller as advertised. There was no stand included and that was one of the reasons I purchased it. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Pierre
Had the saw and cart assembled and running in about 45 minutes. Didn't check the miter set up of the saw out of box because it seemed close enough for me. Read morePublished 15 months ago by G. Crofts

Unpacking this item was a real eye opener ( Be fore Warned the stand came flying out of the box ). It narrowly missed taking my head off. So be careful when unpacking. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Michael
This saw is loaded with features and innovations but falls short on durability.

I agree with a two star review here, this saw is far too complex. I am a professional contractor who also bought this saw based on past experience with Makita. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Brandon S.
