Recent reviews of DEWALT DWS779 12" Sliding Compound Miter Saw:

I just bought this saw and am using it now (OK I am goofing off now) to put in a Pergo laminate floor. The saw is 200 cheaper than the model 780 but virtually same less some unneccessary bells and whistles like a laser display. The slide capability easilly extends to cut the flooring that could be too large otherwise. This is way more saw than I need, however the cheaper sliding saws I looked at were not much cheaper and were a big step down in quality, so I went with the Dewalt 779. My old miter saw is a 10 inch direct drive B&D as a point of reference. When you engage the trigger of the Dewalt, it starts fast with a powerful kick up I didn’t expect. This seems to be because it is a belt-drive and the sudden belt tension kicks it up. If you have finger skin at the trigger edge, the plastic trigger housing bites when it kicks up, be cautious of your finger placement. Likewise if you hover over your work part and choose it is not quite right, releasing the power trigger will because you to jerk the saw down when the belt tension releases. It comes with a general function low end blade that you’ll probably have to replace. Pergo Max (most likely other brands also) laminate floors have a surface that’s partly consisting of aluminum oxide, otherwise called "sapphire", which is hard. It’ll quickly dull a steel blade and wear a tungsten-carbide blade. There’s a special diamond coated Pergo blade, however at 200 is more blade than I need. I got a tungsten-carbide blade (70) for laminate flooring that exactly said for "sliding" miter saws. A sliding cut hits the laminate surface edge-on and cuts like butter. Bringing the blade down onto the laminate surface elicited a obvious "scream" from the blade. I wish I’d bitten the bullet an gotten a sliding miter saw sooner, however watch that pully drive kick.



Experienced homeowner/part time carpenter that does lots of good carpentry and cabinet making. Have owned Delta (back when they were top industrial tools), Jet, and Ridgid miter saws in the past, so I took the plunge it to get a 12" saw with one the slides. The work I do requires 1/32" tolerances at the max, and the old saw could not cut it and was impossible to calibrate. This saw out of the box put on the side any concerns I had about accuracy. Straight and bevel cuts are true and straight, and the stock blade is plentiful for now (will replace with Freud type). The kick back that everyone talks about only occurs in the handle, and the motor is super calm (in comparison to my Ridgid) and smooth. The base is hefty enough to take in start up, so rest guaranteed, your work part won’t slide or get knocked out of position while starting the motor. As for dust collection, though the dust bag is a bit dinky and small, it does a pretty great job collecting dust. Adding a vacuum line to this using a stepped adaptor will make it better. Condsidering that this simply a DWS780 without the gimiky XPS guide, this saw is an unbelievable deal, and really gives the other competitors a run for their money. I look forward to many years of this being my new sidekick.



This saw was dead correct out of the box. I use it for cabinetry and finish trim. I’m really enjoying the depth and length of cut I get out of this saw. The included blade is most likely good for general carpentry and will give you useful life if not abused. I need better cut finish so I upgraded to a Freud 100 tooth finish blade and get flawless cuts. I can do without the laser or XPS cutline that comes on the 780 saw particularly for 200. I really like the carry handle over the saw. I turn the saw to the miter extreme so the saw body is more aligned with the base and the saw is balanced well enough to carry with one hand by the handle. In general happy with this tool I am happy I bought it.
