Not sorry I paid the extra bucks...
I am still learning all the uses for this incredible quality tool. Great for trim, great for rough cuts, powerful, precise, well designed for moving left and right when using the angle or miter, comfortable handle. Only one issue - the left gate is non-adjustable. This is a very minor issue and with a little machining, can be rectified with a very slight modification. This has been my all time favorite tool that Milwaukee makes to date. Mated it to the Milwaukee contractor's table. Looks as awesome as it works.

Great product, poor packaging
I am an avid furniture builder, so I wanted this saw for rough cuts and trim, but didn't want to pay full price. The saw I recieved was like new; it seemed unused. Everything checked out fine and the factory settings were right on the money.

However, it was packed in a box with a few cardboard dividers. The blade, which was not installed, was supposed to be secured and protected by plastic around the teeth. The plastic came off the teeth and the blade dug some divots into the platform. This could have been avoided by either installing the blade or packing it inside one of the dividers.

I was able to file out the divots. The reconditioned saw is five-stars if it is in this condition. The packaging is one star. So my overall rating is three stars. You take a chance ordering this, but with CPO's guarantee and the price, it's worth the gamble to get a really good saw at a really good price.

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!!!

A great 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.

Excellent Product
I use this saw in my woodshop for finish work.

Both mitre and bevel angles were set perfectly to 0 right out of the box, with no drift. The soft-start, integrated work lights, and digital micro adjust features are great. Setting up cuts is quick and easy. The dust chute and ejection design does an excellent job with dust control.

The saw comes with a high quality, 60 tooth carbide blade, but I have not used it because my work requires 96 to 100 tooth carbide finish blades. Changing the blade was very fast and simple.

This saw is solid, well built, and very high quality, and overall a great value.

Please advise differance in miter saws model 6955-80 an 6955-20.
Ben on Jul 5, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The first difference is that the 6955-80 Model offered on the website is factory reconditioned and is offered with a 1-year manufacturer's warranty while the 6955-20 model is new and includes a 5-year warranty. Also, the 6955-80 model has a weight of 65 pounds and a base molding specification of 6.55 inches; the 6955-20 model weighs 55 pounds and has a 6.0 inch base molding specification. Lastly, the 6955-80 model features a dual slide which is not listed on the 6955-20 model.

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 60 days.
