Just what I would expect from DeWalt.
If this lasts 20 years or so, it will be the best power tool I will have ever purchased...(especially at that kind of price) and I have purchased many power tolls through the years. I had a smaller chop saw for years that served me well but this tool has already proven to be a huge step forward.

10 out of 10
Best saw around, for the money it's a steal. Cheaper than a re-con. Lighter weight than a lot. All one would ever need and more for "Mr. Do It Yourself". Plus the folks @ CPO stand behind us-the consumer- great. Bought a saw first that did not slide, they took it back and paid the freight and sent out the new saw the same day. 10 out of 10 for Dewalt and CPO.

Awesome saw
First piece of wood I needed to cut was a 4x4 treated post, OMG...this incredible saw cut through it like it was a piece of trim and the powerful motor was so quiet I hardly new it was even cutting until my post fell in half. I would recommend this to anyone needing a good quality saw for projects around the house.

I just brought this saw and used it today and found it to be well made and easy to use. Its perfect for someone who needs a saw to do projects around the home or farm . Yes it should have the clamps and some kind of light to guide the blade but you can bring the blade down and see where the cut will be.

DW715 (single compound) miter saw - great saw
I really like the DW715 saw, vertical material cut height and Dewalt quality/stand made the decision easy, however, the dust collection is bad spraying everywhere, this makes it tough for inside floor and finish work. I wanted a laser, but it really isn't necessary. I still think it's a really a great tool, cuts perfect right out of the box. Would recommend it highly.

Glad I went with the 12" one.
Had a Rigid 10" for many years that has been good, but now I needed another one in a different location and chose the 12" Dewalt refurbished for only a little more than I paid for my Rigid 10" 15 years ago. Everyone likes their Dewalt miters and I can see why. I really like how it operates and the capacity is excellent. I can almost cut up to 2x12 if I roll it up it will work at 90. I tried to decide between 10" for convenience and 12" for capacity and glad I got 12" Worth it if you are not buying a slider. If using a slider too, then the 10" might be best.

DW715 Day One
After setting up and checking blade for trueness, which was right on, I made a few garden benchs with supplied blade. Bench work went very quick using this instead of my table saw. I was surprised saw was as quiet as it is. Made a couple of plant containers which required use of miters once again saw was spot on. I have never purchased a saw that I did not have to make adjustments on before using. Saw is easy to move around, easy to use, just needs a cord retainer when moving cord gets in way. Will do some bevel cuts later but see no problems.

This saw was great out of the box. No saw has great dust collection, so my "con" would be on any saw review. Great value.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
