Customer reviewsThe best at any price
This is in my opinion , the best overall sliding compound saw out there. I am a licensed contractor and have owned several saws, my last being a Makita 12 slider....I bought this saw because it can cut 6 1 2 tall base, it has a very bright light setup on both sides of blade. It isn t a Shadow line or a laser line saw, but if you have ever used a miter saw, you will know that actually bringing the blade down to your mark is still the most accurate way to cut. This saw has large diameter slide arms, has the least deflection I have seen on any saw, nice tall fences, and a nice robust depth of cut screw and flip out rest, which is better than the Bosch, the Makita, the Delta Cruzer. The dust chute is also very well designed, I just wish the company included a vacuum hookup with the saw since you have to buy this separately. Plus I was hoping this dust attachment would allow me to hood up a short piece of 2 hose to feed into a trash can, but this attachment is too restrictive to be used without a vacuum. Of course some things Milwaukee could do better are the method of locking the saw into chop only mode, which has a screw that tightens onto one of the slide bars, could this scratch the slide and cause a bearing failure The issue with the fence slides seems to be guys who don t know that the fences only have one location where they must be before they can be separated from the sub-fence. So no you don t need to grind off anything for the fences to side and or be removable. My saw needed a miter adjustment when I got it, the saw comes with an Allen wrench for zeroing in the saw, and removal of the blade is also possible with either the Allen wrench or an open ended wrench. I call this the best at any price because even the Festool slider seems very cheaply made to me, it doesn t have the same vertical capacity or really any feature I could see making it worth over twice this Milwaukee saw price. Perhaps if all you make are picture frames it is slightly more accurate. Festool ok if your making dollhouses, but if your working on the real thing, get the Milwaukee
