Smart, Powerful Design for Quick, Accurate Cuts
The DEWALT double-bevel 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 for easy setup and improved efficiency. 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 50 degrees to the left and the right–adds versatility.
The tall fence supports 6-5/8-inch crown molding nested vertically, as well as 6-1/2-inch base molding set vertically against the fence. The fence slides out of the way easily when it’s time to make bevel cuts.
Increased Bevel Capacity and Convenient Stops
This saw is also 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 can deliver clean, 45-degree bevel cuts through dimensional lumber that measures up to 2 by 8 inches. And at 90-degrees, it can cross cut 2 by 10s.
Portable and Compatible with the DEWALT Laser or L.E.D. System
This lightweight compound miter saw weighs just 44 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 the DEWALT’ DW7187 adjustable miter saw laser system or the DWS7085 LED cut line indicator system (sold separately), which ensures that the cutting path is clear to see.
This 12-inch double-bevel 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.
