Cathy, I have used my 10 inch Makita for over 20 years, and it meets my needs. It is the only large tool I have ever been able to take out of the box and use without adjustment or assembly. It is still going strong and I have no need to replace it. I would look at a new Makita first.

Since weight is not a problem and your saw will basically live in your shop I would also look at the Bosch GCM12SD 12” The articulating arm is a nice concept and I like the controls all being on the front of the saw.

I don’t know if you are going to be happy with the feel of the DeWalt. I wasn’t. It just felt loose and sloppy to me.
