Top customer reviews
I took the saw to a DeWalt Service Center, where I found out that 1, the three year warranty on defective parts is virtually useless, since the manager accused me of abusing the saw, and 2, they are in denial about the problem.
The service technician who ground the fence flat admitted that he had seen the problem multiple times but had “no idea how it got that way”. The manager claimed that the one piece aluminum fence would bend easily, so it must be my fault, but didn’t explain how the bolts to attach the fence still lined up perfectly and why the technician ground the fence to get it parallel rather than just bending it straight (I tried bending the fence straight, but it wouldn’t budge).
They were going to charge me $110 to fix a $220 saw. I refused to pay it and kept insisting (loudly) that it was a factory defect. The manager finally agreed that the fix would be under warranty (just to make me go away, I am sure), but said my warranty for the saw would no longer in effect for anything. Since the saw has been perfect other than the fence, I was happy to agree. If the manager had not relented, I would have salvaged my blade, and left the saw there and simply bought another one.
Anyway, if you check the fence with a straight edge as soon as you get the saw and it is not parallel, you can either return it or take it to a Dewalt Service Center where they will not be able to claim that you abused the saw.
Other than the fence, this has been a reliable and accurate miter saw. I did buy a better blade (Freud LU88R012 Industrial Thin Kerf Fine Finish Crosscut Saw Blade 12 inch x 80t ATB 1 inch arbor) at the same time I bought the saw, which brings up a weird fact. The manual says to “always use 12" (305 mm) saw blades with 1" (25.4 mm) arbor”, but the saw actually takes a 5/8" arbor. An adapter is necessary to use a blade with a 1" arbor. An adapter was provided with the saw. If I had known this, I could have bought my replacement blade with the proper arbor size.
Issues and comments:
#1--Grumble: The table of the saw was very slightly out of alignment with the saw arm. Although I took pains to square the blade to the table and to the fence there was something ever so slightly off. The first two years of use were mostly 1x and 2x lumber where the misalignment was too small to show up. A couple months ago I started some projects with fine moulding. The cuts were ever so slightly off, even though the blade was perfectly square to both table and fence. They were perfect at 45 degrees, too. I finally spotted the problem when cutting returns to finish some trim ends. The blade pushed very slightly to the left as it came down. It seems like the arm had a very small wander to the left, although it was impressively stable when tugged left and right to test it. I modified William Ng's 5-cut method for squaring the fence on a table saw sled. With a piece of 1x6 standing against the fence I cut at 90, then rotated the cut side down to the table and made another cut, etc. Check out his method on YouTube. The result was that the table itself was about 0.2 degrees out of alignment with the vertical path of the arm.
I tried the warranty approach and got shot down. When I bought this saw in 2014 the warranty was just 1 year, not 3 years as it is now. Also the service center seemed to think I had "abused" the saw and caused the misalignment. Fat chance, the saw was secured on a custom stand. It was never dropped, or banged around in a truck, etc. When I dismounted the saw from the stand for the trip to the service center, that was only the second time the saw was removed from the stand. DeWalt customer service was terrific but the service center stuck to their "abuse" theory. Anyway the old 1-year warranty had expired. After realignment ($60) the saw was perfect. So that's my tale of woe of you're interested.
#2 Grumble: Poor dust collection. Even with a strong vacuum connected there is a lot of sawdust whizzing out. Too much. There must be better configurations that capture much more dust without having to retrofit aftermarket gizmos that improve (but do not FIX) this design flaw.
#3 Comment: The throat in the table was typical for these saws. I opted for a modification with the Aluminum Zero Clearance Insert (Z.C.I.) Plate for DeWalt 10" & 12" Non-Sliding Saws from Infinity Tools, plus some spare inserts. The insert was easy to install and worked beautifully for the cut side in contact with the table. The back side of the workpiece still had tearout (unless I used a backer).
#4 Comment: I installed the DEWALT DW7080 Extension System, for DW703, DW706, and DW708. Currently it's recommended only for the DW703, DW706, and DW708. It is currently not recommended for the DW715. A couple years ago it WAS considered an accessory for the DW715. It installed easily and was helpful until I completed my own miter saw stand. No idea if the current DW7080 extension would fit a DW715 saw.
#5 Comment: Everything else worked great. The detents are very solid, precise, and accurate so cuts were reproducible. The table swung easily and locked firmly. Trigger control was solid with either hand. There's a bit of a screech on startup but that's pretty typical. The onboard wrench for removing and installing the blade is very handy. The carry handle works for a one-hand move. There's plenty of power to get through large boards of dense wood. Basically it's an excellent miter saw.
#6 Comment: DeWalt did an odd thing with this saw. There are three versions of the DW715. They did not go with 715A, 715B, 715C. No. You have to look carefully to see Type 1, Type 2, or Type 3. This is key when buying accessories. Triple check it. That's experience talking. (Mine is Type 3.)
If I did more carpentry I might prefer a double-bevel model with a sliding head and a 10" blade that's interchangeable with my table saw. But, I can't justify the expense. This saw has been a champion workhorse for thousands of cuts. At $200 it's a bargain compared to saws costing two to three times as much. If DeWalt improved the dust collection I'd give it six stars.
But do check that vertical alignment. No kidding, everything was perfectly square EXCEPT the vertical travel of the arm and blade. The error was too small to see until some fancy moulding revealed the problem.
It came as one piece right out of the box (the instructions and dust bag were hidden under the Styrofoam that I wouldn't have thought to lift up if I wasn't desperately searching for instructions) and was extremely easy to figure out how to use (especially for someone who has only ever used a circular saw, and that being a 1 time experience as well)
So far I've made 3 benches of 4x4s and 2xs and it cuts everything clean, including angles
I almost went with the double bevel sliding saw but decided it was probably a bit much for my simple hobby needs, and while I do have to flip anything wider than a 2x6 and finish off the last little bit, it really isn't a big deal and I don't mind. If I was using this for work I definitely would want the slider though.
Overall, definitely happy with my purchase!
