Nice Miter Saw
I have used one of these in our local community college's shop and finally got my own! This replaces a Delta saw and is so much better and smoother. I had the same issues as everyone else with the 32 tooth blade being included.

I have had this for about 6 months. It is my go to tool for cross cutting. It is very accurate
This unit was compared to many on the market. I feel this was the best unit for the money.

Fantastic saw!
Bought this saw to replace tools in our Habitat For Humanity Tool Trailer. It has been a great addition to the tools we make available to our volunteers. Recently used it to install over 780 feet of trim. Made the install a breeze! I personally have a 12 inch Dewalt compound miter saw, but if I ever replace it this would be the saw...

Upgraded from a DW706 12” double bevel compound miter.
Bevel & miter setting easier to see and set. Bevel stops are awesome. Easy to reset for the setting I use from crown moulding & baseboards. Better saw dust collection

i bought this saw and will never buy another miter saw brand other than DEWALT. The saw cuts with surgical precision. Great design and exceptional engineering.

Solid value, better tool
When my father's miter saw finally bought the farm I found this saw on sale at Lowe's. Paired with the stand there is really nothing that it can'd do. Aligned correctly out of the box and fit and finish is solid. I've already used it to cut a fair amount of pressure treated 2x lumber and it did great.

This is the 3rd miter saw I’ve owned and so far it’s the best one. First, it was perfectly square out of the box. It’s very precise and the power is great, it literally glides through hardwood. I’ve used this saw for several projects, including a 200 foot picket fence with 2x4s and 4x4s, put down a 1200 sf oak floor, built a 4’x8’ work bench and replaced a bunch of siding and it still cuts true and hasn’t lost a bit of power. Sure that should be the expectation but you can really feel the quality of this saw. The only negative is the cute little dust collection sack (not big enough to call it a bag). It doesn’t do much but I guess it’s better than nothing. Overall it’s a great saw, especially for the price.
