nice first try Rated 3 by Anonymous
Nice first try for a miter saw from Milwaukee. It has a few flaws, though: mounted on a stand, the cord does't reach the floor- unacceptable if you want to use a cordreel compound cuts are only possible 45/45 left and even less right the right fence doesn't slide over- it has to be removed as soon as you need the right bevel can't cut 3 pieces 2x stacked- my other saw can The trully good: this saw is HD. I bet, it can fall off your pick up without any damage. It was dead on both square and bevel out the box. Great framing saw- for finishing there are better ones

I love this saw and it is my go to saw for the majority of my work. The only flaw is the lights, which are way too weak for field work. I installed a custom made axle and 10" wheels and it can now be rolled around in field,yard and construction sight without flipping over. Some small scews have rusted or corroded due to wet sawdust, and the mitre saw roller supports need a redesign as they are off center and not alligned. I would, however, recommended this saw to anyone without reservation, as a trusted heavy duty tool.

Better than its competitors. Rated 5 by Anonymous
This saw surpassed all expectations. I've used it for a little over 1 year on job-sites and it has performed flawlessly. It's accurate. It gets thrown in the back of the truck everyday and still performs as if it were new. I've used it to frame porches, garages, and install thousands of feet of exterior trim. I've owned the DeWalt, Ridgid, and Makita versions of this saw. The Milwaukee is by far the superior saw. Don't waste your money buying anything else.

Best SCMS on the market Rated 5 by Anonymous
This saw is the workhorse of the 12 in SCMS's. We switch off between this saw and the DWS780, and I prefer this one. The direct drive provides a smoother start and more consistent cut, and the power is noticeably better in large framing lumber and hardwoods. The digital miter gauge is very handy, as well are the lights, but the bevel adjust is the best in class. The detant override and fine adjust also work very well in correlation with the digital readout.
