The DEWALT double-bevel sliding compound miter saw's 12-inch blade is backed by a powerful and dependable 15 amp motor. Offering a no-load speed of 3,600 rpm, it makes quick work of cutting framing or molding, as well as other crosscutting and miter-cutting jobs.
This sturdy saw is designed to deliver precise cuts, allowing for the versatile setups required for miter applications. The precise miter system's adjustable stainless steel miter detent plate features 11 positive stops. An easy-to-adjust cam-lock miter handle delivers quick and accurate miter angles, and features a convenient detent override, which allows you to adjust the miter setting without the saw slipping into the miter detents. And the saw's big miter capacity--0 to 60 degrees to the left and 0 to 50 degrees to the right--adds versatility.
Tall Fencing and Compact Sliding Rails
The tall fence supports 6-5/8-inch crown molding nested vertically, as well as 6-1/2-inch base molding set against the fence. The fence slides out of the way easily when it's time to make bevel cuts. This saw stays compact thanks to its dual horizontal steel rails, which feature an innovative clamping mechanism and linear ball bearings for increased accuracy and durability.
Increased Bevel Capacity and Convenient Stops
This saw is designed to deliver quick, accurate bevel cuts. You can easily set up for bevel cuts that measure between 0 and 48 degrees to the left and to the right. This handy setup provides increased capacity for big jobs and allows you to flip the saw instead of the material. Plus, with hardened steel bevel stops at 0, 33.9, 45 and 48 degrees on both sides, it makes finding and setting the most common bevel angles a quick, easy process.
Ideal for a range of applications, the saw's unique fence design allows it to deliver clean, 45-degree bevel cuts through dimensional lumber measuring up to 2 by 12 inches. At 90-degrees, it can cross cut 2 by 16s.
Portable and Compatible with the DEWALT Laser System
This lightweight compound miter saw weighs just 53 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.
For additional accuracy and ease of use, this saw is compatible with a DEWALT DW7187 (sold separately) adjustable miter saw laser system (sold separately), which ensures that the cutting line is easy to see via a red laser line.
This 12-inch double-bevel sliding compound miter saw also comes with a DEWALT warranty package that includes a three-year limited warranty, a one-year free service contract, and a 90-day money-back guarantee.

Firstly, the table is smaller than the dw708, the rails are 1 inch in diameter (rather than the common 1 3/16") this smaller rail system causes major power head deflection!!!! Accuracy is severely compromised by too much head flex - even worse is how over 14 inches of travel, the cut is out by about 16th of an inch, too much play in my opinion! Since the saw is made in MEXICO, I really feel that there are quality issues. As the older model was made is the States (hurray), this new model has a bad finish! There are aluminum slag deposits everywhere! I had to get out my grinder and start grinding off the extra aluminum that appears to be everywhere! The newly redesigned cam-lock handle is flimsy and harder to use than the previous cam-lock system. One thing that I really don't like is that they got rid of the miter-verneer scale for the miter scale. One could easily adjust (on the DW708) to 1/4 or even 1/2 degrees - you still can now, but it is way harder. They now use a wimpy piece of "flexible red plastic" single arrow; very unimpressive; it is hard to read! Also, the bevel lock is hard to use and get at. DeWalt placed it very close to the motor. So you have to pull the power head completely forward in order to get a complete grip on the bevel lock handle if you want to lock into a certain bevel angle, very bad design! They have redesigned the dust collection system. It works by having a black plastic pipe run for about 12 inches before the dust bag is attached. Barely any dust is caught. Even with my 6.5 peak Horse Power vacuum I cannot collect any dust.Read more ›
I bought a ls1013L, what a difference,great saw,super build/finish. The laser is preinstalled,can move line without tools to eitherside of kerf quickly and the vertical does not change as on the 718 if you move the laser kerf position you need an allen wrench and have to play with the guard. I would have bought the 12" if I did not have the DW706. The Makita is Made in USA even,except for the blade.
I understand the capacity is good but the accuracy,etc. is crude, even the holdown shaft "D" shaped end looks like someone rubbed it on rough concrete,not even flat.
Checked another display at Lowes and the same thing.esp. rough slider action too.
When this was done my evaluation started. First, the quality of the saw, detents, table and overall build quality was excellent. Another reviewer complained of several flaws on his saw. I found none of these problems with mine. I did have to make small adjustments to the red angle indicator arrows and the miter detent bar. The adjustments took 5 minutes and were easy to do.Read more ›
I've had the 718 for a year now, and I've got to agree with everybody; the good and the bad. I was a little apprehensive about buying it based on reviews of the slide action not being very good. But I have a tendency to research and analyze things to death; so I decided to just get it and find out for myself.
The first one I received, I sent back because of the slide action. It felt extremely jerky, and I didn't feel that I could get a smooth cut. I figured it had been damaged in shipment as the box was damaged. Unfortunately, the replacement saw felt the exact same way. Making a tour of different stores, I found all of the display units felt the same as well. There is a huge difference in the slide action when compared to the smoothness of the 708. I don't feel that you would ruin your cut because of it; but it's not what you expect... especially for the money you just spent. It definitely makes you take your cut slow and easy. However, I will say that the jerky action you feel when you slide it while not making a cut is somewhat lessened while you are actually cutting.Read more ›
