    Comments about Milwaukee 12 in. Dual-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw:

    I am a General Contractor and I just purchased this saw. I have used Hitachi, Makita and DeWalt comparables and this one is my favourite. The digital gauge is a little overkill but positve stops make this saw super accurate (similar to the DeWalt). The makita saws DO NOT hold their accuracy over a long period of use. The stand is not a great design but is very similar to most on the market.

      Comments about 12 in. Dual-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw:

      It doesn't cut straight, the right fence in a take off, useless. From what I read the degree feature is only good for about a month. Very disappointing from what used to be THE top of the line tools,I have many of their tools and have been very happy. My tools were made in America.

        Comments about Milwaukee 12 in. Dual-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw:

        Have used or owned a few other 12" saws including Ridgid and Dewalt. This saw beats them hands down, especially the Dewalt that I think is highly overrated.

        I had to adjust miter out of the box though, it was out over half a degree. Not a tough job but it was surprising.

        The stand? Don't even bother. What a piece of junk. Used it on one job and went and bought a Ridgid stand to mount it on and gave the Milwaukee stand away. If you need to transport the saw anywhere it is useless. The wheels are so small you can't roll over gravel or anything other than smooth, solid surfaces. Forget taking up a flight of stairs. The base is so narrow when folded up it tips over in the back of your truck and has to be supported.

        The right side fence not sliding is pretty annoying as others have stated but not a dealbreaker for me.

        A couple of people have complained about the lights being dim. I'm not sure if that's a problem on older models or not, but I have no problem with the brightness and the clarity of them, being led is very good. Much better than a laser.

        One minor nitpick that I'm surprised no one else has mentioned is that there is no place to wrap up the cord. For a saw of this caliber there's really no excuse for such a simple miss.

        Dust collection is good but I want to hook up to my shop vac on site and with the weird rectangular dust opening the only way to do so is to buy Milwaukee's vac attachment. Good luck finding one. I did finally but I think $23 for a hunk of plastic is a bit much.... C'mon Milwaukee - include it with the saw!

        The cuts (once the saw is dialled in) are wonderful. Like I said, it is the nicest saw I've used to date.

        Oh yeah, make a crown stop for your saw, that would be a nice accessory to have.

        One last nitpick before I forget - the placement of the slider lock is terrible, can be very difficult to get your fingers in to loosen or tighten it.

        If Milwaukee just listens to the feedback and makes a few minor changes to this saw (and a total rebuild of their stand), this saw will be just about perfect.

        • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee;
          New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
