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

Milwaukee makes excellent tools and this miter saw just proves it again. Its a great well thought out saw. Easy blade change, onboard tool. The digital readout is one that no other saw has and works great. The saw slides extremly smooth. The new model, like mine has LED lights witch are really nice and bright and last longer than conventional bulbs. Milwaukee also makes a vacum attachment for this saw that i purchased, its a great ad-on. The lights really help in low light projects. I looked at every miter saw out there and this one is the best in my opinion. CPO has them at the best price out there! Right out of the box i checked it was perfictly squared up and ready to use. Milwaukee made a stand for it but it was discontinued, im not sure why but it forced me to purchase a dewalt one.

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

I am able to get accurate, clean cross cuts and miters on wide stock. The sliding action is smooth with not even a hint of deflection. The lights are great for illuminating your work and lining up you cut.

I was really impressed with how little saw dust was left behind even before I connected a dust collector. My previous miter saw created a mess no matter how I tried to contain or capture the dust.

Setting miter and bevel are easier than expected for a saw this heavy. The table swivels smoothly with detentes for common angles as does the bevel. The bevel indicator scale is clearly visible. Also, everything was accurate out of the box. I checked the blade and fence for square, but did not need to make any adjustment.

The micro adjustment of the miter angle is neat, but I've not yet put it to use. I imagine it will come in handy when I start in on base and crown molding.

    I used to be under the impression that dewalt held the cards in the slider miter market. I was mistaken. While other brands have added gimmicks Milwaukee has produced a no BS monster. There just isnt a competetor for the price. It is refreshing to know that Good Quality is not dead to the industry.

    A must have at any price!!!

        New Vs. 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 60 days.

        Condition: New Factory Reconditioned
