The DEWALT DWS780 12-inch double bevel sliding compound miter saw expertly walks the line between the rugged durability and fine precision that professionals need on the job site. From delicate woodworking to heavy-duty framing and deck building, the DWS780 provides the accuracy, capacity, and portability that cabinetmakers, trim carpenters, framers, installers, and contractors need.
The DWS780 12-inch double bevel sliding compound miter saw is not only durable enough to handle rugged materials, it also is equipped with state-of-the-art technology for fine and precision cutting (view larger).
It allows you to bevel from zero to 49 degrees with positive stops at 0 degrees, 22.5 degrees, 33.9 degrees, 45 degrees, and 49 degrees in both right and left directions (view larger).
The DWS780 miter saw features extremely solid construction and the new XPS cross-cut alignment system that features an improved ultra-bright LED light, which casts a laser-like shadow on the work surface and shows the user precisely where the blade will come in contact with the material. This unique alignment system requires no recalibration over time or after changing blades, which makes it more accurate and durable than traditional laser guides.
The DWS780 miter saw’s rugged guards; precision-machined castings, fences, and bevel system; and tough stainless steel miter detent plate are designed to withstand the constant rigors of the job site.
The saw features a powerful 15-amp motor that delivers 3,800 RPM. For convenience, the power cord is routed through the rail in the back, eliminating interference with the slide. Additionally, the saw offers an industry-leading combination of cut capacities, which includes 6-3/4-inch vertical capacity, 7-1/2-inch nested crown capacity, 13-7/8-inch horizontal capacity, and exclusive back fence design that cuts up to a 2x16 at a 90-degree angle and 2x12 at a 45-degree angle. To simplify and maximize vertical cutting capacity, the unit includes a rail lock latch for holding the head away from the fence.
The dual bevel system is easy to see and use in job site conditions thanks to its high-visibility scale and easy angle adjustment. Bevel from zero to 49 degrees with positive stops at 0 degrees, 22.5 degrees, 33.9 degrees, 45 degrees, and 49 degrees in both right and left directions. The saw also miters 60 degrees to the right and 50 degrees to the left and features an adjustable miter detent plate with 10 positive stops. A cam lock miter button allows the user to lock angles between detents. A miter detent override is also used to allow precise angle adjustment without falling into detents.

Amazon and the big box stores usually sells these for the same price (I bought mine through Amazon before the sales tax implementation, so it was a good deal for that reason). Once a year for several weeks, Dewalt will run a promotion for this saw and the heavy duty stand (DWX723) for $599 together, so unless your are in an immediate need for the saw, wait until then to save $200.
The good: 16" cross cut. Thumb lock works great. Easy to adjust the miter detentes to dial them in perfectly. Power! Pretty smooth glide. Nice light. Easy to bevel. (My last saw the Hitachi 12" was really clumsy to bevel) Love the bevel stops that pivot out of the way if you want them to. Very handy idea. Fence has a durable feel. Excellent Teflon glide for the miter base. Weighs less than other 12" saws and is way easier to carry than my old Hitachi.
The "oh well": The glide rails do stick out the back so it takes up a lot of room on a bench. The blade is not so good for finish work but then complaining about the bade a saw comes with is kinda like complaining that your new car came with bad wiper fluid. Just replace it. No big deal. The included blade would be great for framing lumber though. I recommend staying away from a thin kerf finish since it's more likely to wobble on a 12". Get a good 100 tooth full kerf.
The bad: I have not found anything bad about it just yet other than be careful in regards to "pull up" of the work piece since the blade plunges so far down into the base. But it's no big deal if one is careful. It's actually no big deal to simply not plunge the saw all the way down. Or, one could adjust the plunge stop up and then install a sacrificial fence. If you need to have the full 16" crosscut just remove the sacrificial fence temporarily. No saw will do absolutely every task without some modifications. For instance if you are one that can't figure out the math in order to cut crown flat (shame on you if you call yourself a carpenter) then build a sled jig with fence that is sized for the crown your working with and cut it standing up. Heck back in the old days with radial arms we had jigs for everything.
In conclusion: Good saw for the money, smooth and powerful, be careful of "pull up" if you have the grace of a neanderthal , buy a nice full kerf finish blade while your at the store getting your saw. Google up some you tube videos on making sacrificial fences and jigs.
But the DWS780 is everything I could ask for. I also bought the rolling stand, DWX726, and the two products make a great pair.
This is a serious miter saw for serious work. I am a DYIer, so do not use the saw to its full potential. I bought it only after carefully reading all of the reviews I could find. So far, I have no negatives to report, and have used the saw and stand to complete a finished basement.
Perhaps my favorite feature is the XPS cross-cut alignment feature. It is as accurate as I need and has really made a difference in making sure corners fit properly.
Highly recommend. Would buy again.
She cuts through wood like butter. It is so smooth and accurate. It is so smooth it can make very fine sheets of paper thin wood.
The angles cut feature is very easy to use and you can get the cuts down to fractions of a degree.
I would highly recommend. Only negative is the price
