DeWalt got this RIGHT!
My 780 is just the addition my shop needed. The degree adjustment is spot on with no movement when set. Changing the blade to the DeWalt T80 took me 10 minutes. Ok, it's a little heavy but I want something that is built for what I have to throw at it. This tools feels right when running through beveled molding cuts or 4x4 posts. This powerful work horse will eat lumber and spit out dust. I also received the DeWalt folding mobile heavy duty work station for free with my purchase... THANK YOU DEWALT and CPO!

The best
The only miter saws I buy are Dewalt. Finish carpenter and cabinet maker for 29 years.

great saw
Perfect for my use. Very versatile
December 21, 2018
one sweet saw
Highly recommend this saw, easy to set up, easy to use, blows my old Makita out of the water
June 14, 2018
Great saw
I had the first generation model of this saw and got a lot of use out of it. Dewalt has made several improvements — the bevel function is easier to use and the dust collection is fairly efficient. This is a great saw, especially mounted on a Dewalt mobile stand.
June 2, 2018
Great product, great customer service
May 31, 2018
Awesome piece of equipment
Finely tuned, accurate piece of equipment. Quality through and through. STands up to hard daily use of just the occasional project. Woupld buy it again.
May 30, 2018
Great saw, worth the extra money for the miter light for winter months when it's dark at 5pm
Only bad part of saw is the miter stops that I had on my double bevel saw doesn't work on this saw
You have to get your own allthreads to hold stops
Dewalt doesn't even make stops for this saw!!!!
July 12, 2017
Great purchase saved $100. Have used for picture frame. Accurate and pleased.
January 25, 2017
If you want the best, you found it.
I would highly recommend this product to professionals and homeowners alike. It is easy to use, accurate, and I it makes me a better craftsman. I'm an union electrician by trade, and have great respect for quality products- this saw is quality.

What is the big difference between the 780 and the cheaper 782?
ziggy on Sep 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I just called DeWalt. The 780 has the lighting system built-in, the 782 does not. Also, some retailers include the $199 stand bundled with the 780.
I am considering purchasing a 12" Dewalt mitre saw, MODEL (#DEWNDWS780). Could you tell me what "DEWN" that precedes "DWS780" stands for? "Thank You"
Scott on Jun 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have no idea unless it is a specific model designation. GREAT Saw! but
would recommend buying the cart that comes with it or waiting until the
cart is free. Saw is very large and takes up a lot of space, but
exceptional
can you add laser beam to dewalt DWS 780 or recommend another saw
Rick on Mar 4, 2013
BEST ANSWER: why would you want to? The shadow system shows up even in direct sun as I recently found. the shadow system is always indicating blade location, while lasers are independent from blade and must be readjusted for each blade.
Could I saw cement patio pads ?
A shopper on Jun 16, 2019

Are you offering this saw with the free heavy duty stand with purchase still?
N on May 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We are not currently offering the free stand with miter saw purchase promotion.
Can the depth of the cut be adjusted to stop and stay at that depth of cut. I want to be able to make a mortise. The older model of this saw was able to do this, will the dws780 also be able to do the same?
If it will, thats the saw for me.
Michael on Jan 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this item may be adjusted to stay at a level cut.

I am interested in this product an I live in the UK. But i need to know if the power outlet is suitable to use in the UK which is 110v on UK building sites?
Woody on Nov 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Dewalt dws780 would need a step down converter to use in the UK.
I am still trying to find out if I order this saw can I get the DWX726 stand instead of the statioary one offered since the price is the same?
DON on Oct 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Dewalt puts together the promotions for the item picked for the promotion only.
Can you get the rolling miter stand instead of the stationary one offered since the price of both are the same? I would be more likely to purchase if it came with the rolling stand.
DON on Oct 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The current promotion can only be used with the folding stand.
What is the difference between a Double Bevel Sliding Miter Saw and a Dual Bevel Sliding Miter Saw?
David on Sep 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Double Bevel and Dual Bevel is the same,just different terminology.
Just bought the DWS780 because it is considered to be Dewalt's best and newest miter saw and I have always trusted Dewalt's quality. The truth is, I never would have spent $600 on this saw if the $200 stand did not come with it. I have not used the saw yet but I am finding that the glider feels very smooth. Is that because i am not cutting wood with it or did i just get a saw that was made better than many others are complaining about? The saw I was going to buy was the 716, 12" without the slider for $349. I paid $600 for the slider but if the slider is an issue, maybe it needs to go back to the store. Any ideas if corrections have been made to this saw gliding system or am I just lucky?
Bob on Sep 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Please contact the manufacturer direct at 1-800-433-9258 for technical assistance.
Are you shipping type 1 (made in Mexico) or type 20 (made in Tiawan) ?
Glass on Jul 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The DWS780 type is printed on the saw, it is no longer printed on the outside of the box. I know from previous orders that I have placed with customers, that the type was 20
hello,
